Rev. Whitley to take on Allison for Durham Committee leadership -- but just who gets to vote?

In town, can't cook this Thanksgiving? Here's some Durham restaurants open Thu.

Wild_turkey Turkey Day looms -- a day that inspires thoughts of warmth, family, parades and football among many. Except for those among us for whom it only conjures up a most biological response:

Where the heck am I going to eat?

Fear not; the Durham Convention and Visitors Bureau has you covered with a list of restaurants that will or won't be open this season. The full list is available (PDF format only) for download -- here's some highlights from the list:

Downtown/Central Durham: Cafe Zen, Four Square, James Joyce Irish Pub, Kim-Son Vietnamese, Mt. Fuji, Parizade (with their always-popular vegetarian Thanksgiving dinner), TGI Friday's, Tripps, Tyler's Taproom, Vita.

South Durham: Bombay Grille, Chammps Americana Grill, Maggiano's, Outback Steakhouse, Restaurant Eden, Rockfish Seafood Grill, Spice & Curry, Sunset Grille, Ted's Montana Grill, Tonali, West 94th Street Pub.

Quick Eats & Greasy Spoons: Benetis, Cracker Barrel, Devil's Pizzeria, Honey's, International Delights, IHOP, Pizzeria Roma, Rudino's.

Plus, don't forget that most area hotels with restaurants will see their facilities stay open during the holiday, including the Washington Duke Inn's Fairview Restaurant and Bull Durham Bar.
