Whole cooked Turkey for Thanksgiving

Anyone know which restaurants will be selling whole cooked turkeys in or near Culver City this year?

      Tavern's take-out turkey is "oven ready." You can get the roasted one when you eat in the restaurant.

        I always cook a Thanksgiving dinner that can't be beat. Last year, though, I was sick and did not have the wherewithal to do all that cooking. So I bought a Roasted Turkey Dinner from Gelson's:
        roast turkey, cornbread stuffing, mashed potatoes, a vegetable medley, turkey gravy, cranberry sauce, gingered yam soufflé, and rolls. I was very happy with the quality, and with Gelson's efficiency in distributing lots and lots of these things in a very short period, and with the amount of food (the dinner I bought ostensibly was for 8 people; we had 8 people, and there were plenty of leftovers), and with the price -- $115, which I thought was a real bargain. They also sell whole roasted turkeys, stated to be big enough to serve 8 - 10, for $5.99 a pound; that strikes me as pretty reasonable. Here's a link to their online-order menu:
