  1. I was just on Spenger's website, looking for crab, and noticed that they offer a traditional Thanksgiving dinner. (Cornbread stuffing, though) I imagine the food will be pretty basic, but the atmosphere will be cozy and friendly. (Unlike, say, Skates it doesn't feel corporate, just tastes it.)
