Let's talk turkey, shall we?

If you have out-of-towners coming in, or you hate to cook (or hate to eat someone's cooking), you have limited dining options on Thanksgiving Day.

Here's's list of restaurants planning to serve Nov. 22. Note that Philly's Chinatown will be very much open. Packed even. Many Asian restaurants in strip malls hither and yon will be open, too, as will the larger hotels that have restaurants and your friendly neighborhood diner.

We're soliciting info from restaurants. The form to submit is here. (Yo restaurateur! It's free to list and will take you all of four minutes.)
