    What part of town are you considering and how much do you want to spend? You could go traditional and unique (and cheap) and help out at the Union Rescue Mission...

      Last year I got several items to take to the family gathering. Everything was delicious. Particularly memorable were the sides. My DIL cooked the turkey. Delicious gravy, cranberry sauce, potatoes and pie. I remember that the gravy and cranberry sauce were crazy good!
