Re: “Turkeys for the taking

Just called Ya-Ya's - they are doing the buffet again this year, with some small changes in the menu items, and starting at 10:30am - 4pm. All other info is the same. If this is where I went last year, it was great!

Re: “Turkeys for the taking

Anyone know which restaurants will be open Turkey day?
