Copper Star Coffee and Circle H Barbecue

This is my year not cooking at either work, so I will probably volunteer to be in charge of mashed potatoes and the turkey gravy. Lotsa butter and cream!

Searsucker Scottsdale

I will be spending the day with my family. We'll first head over to my wife's parents' house and then take our daughter to my mother's. I will not be partaking in any cooking whatsoever and it will be amazing! Everyone needs a day off -- this is mine.

Chef and Owner, Crudo

We are going to be closed on Thanksgiving. I'm going to sleep in, drink wine, and go to friends' houses for food. So I might luck out and not have to cook at all.

Chef and Owner, Romeo's Euro Cafe

I spent some time in the retail business and always worked the holidays. I vowed that if I was ever in the position to offer my crew time off for the family holidays, I would. Romeo's will be closed. I'll be doing a little cooking -- pot luck at my mom's.

Proprietor, The Stockyards

The Stockyards will be closed on Thanksgiving. I will be cooking my mom's recipes for my family, as I have for the last 25 years: roast turkey, sage bread dressing, whipped potatoes, and giblet gravy. My favorite holiday! Food, family, friends, and of course some great wine to bring it all together.
