If you’re undecided about where to have Thanksgiving dinner, Newsweek offered the above photo and this story about Denny’s $8-$18 options:
And Newsweek wasn’t the only one.
A week before Thanksgiving the San Diego Union-Tribune ran this lengthy article:
The article listed 40+ restaurants and assured us that if we hadn’t yet made our Thanksgiving dinner reservations: “No problem.”
Here are a few of those restaurants and what you’ll pay on Thanksgiving:
Barleymash, San Diego; $45 per person.
Sea 180 Coastal Tavern, Imperial Beach; $59.95 per person.
Coasterra, San Diego; $64.95 per adult.
20|Twenty, Carlsbad; $89 per adult.
Morada, Rancho Santa Fe; $95 per adult. And…
I expect these restaurants will be very busy tomorrow.
And I think that’s great.
As I sit here on the day before Thanksgiving, another option occurs to me: Places where many people will go, if they can find their way.
And perhaps some – just some – of the people going to Denny’s or Addison or any restaurant might spare a thought, and a few dollars – just a few – and donate money to a non-profit offering Thanksgiving meals.
The average cost to provide a free Thanksgiving meal is $2 to $2.50 per person at, for instance, the the Salvation Army.
Just a thought.
