Thanksgiving story is on its way

Each year around Nov. 1, I start getting e-mails from readers asking me which local restaurants will be open on Thanksgiving Day serving the traditional meal.

I’m working on the list right now, and it will be in the newspaper on Nov. 16, which is a week from Friday. I’ll have it on the web a week from today: Nov. 14.

People need to plan, I know, but if I start the list much earlier, the restaurants often don’t have their details finalized.

If you’re itching to make a reservation before then, though, you could consult my list from last year. My experience is that it changes only a little from year-to-year.

In the meantime, if you know of a restaurant that should be included, please let me know via e-mail or post it in the comments.
