Thanksgiving Day (Thursday, November 22) marks the beginning of the winter holiday season and it is fast approaching. The day centers on food and eating, so here are some of your choices besides the obvious one of cooking up a big meal at home. If you want the meal without the hours in the kitchen, you can order up a prepared Thanksgiving dinner from one of our local supermarkets. If you want to get out of the house, many local dining establishments have good deals for eating out on Thanksgiving.
Happy Thanksgiving from Reno, Nevada.

There are numerous other Thanksgiving activities to keep the family busy through the holiday weekend. Reno will have it's official Holiday Tree lighting on November 20, followed by ice skating at Rink on the River. If the weather is less than pleasant, there are plenty of indoor activities around the area. And should you be thankful about not being broke, there's always Black Friday shopping on the day after Thanksgiving.
