Thanksgiving Dinner Out ~
Not into cooking a big meal this Thanksgiving? Thinking about having Thanksgiving Dinner Out? No problem! Whether you’re looking for a traditional sit-down feast for the family or a get together with friends and local “orphans” (those who do not have family in town), there are plenty of places open and serving dinner on Thanksgiving.
If you’re looking for a more traditional Thanksgiving feast, be sure to checkout Elk Avenue Prime in Crested Butte. They put on a wonderful Thanksgiving Buffet from 3:00-8:00 Thanksgiving day. Reservations are required and they do fill up fast so be sure to RSVP online or by calling (970) 349-1221. With amazing food and one of the largest wine lists in the valley, you won’t be disappointed.
If you’re more into a casual dinner with friends, you might check out the Friendsgiving Potluck at the Eldo. What better way to end the day after hitting the slops on opening day then enjoying a great meal, football and drinks with your friends. This is a potluck so bring a dish to share. There is a signup sheet at the Eldo.
For those looking for Thanksgiving dinner out in the south end of the Valley, the Ol’ Miner Steakhouse, a family owned restaurant in Gunnison does a free Thanksgiving meal from 2:00-5:00. Enjoy great food in a casual dining atmosphere the whole family will enjoy. Located right on Main Street, the Ol’ Miner Steakhouse is easy to find and has room for the whole family.
The Almont Resort is also serving up Thanksgiving Dinner from noon – 7:00 on Thanksgiving Day. Dinner will include an appetizer bar, soup and salad bar, along with all of the traditional fixings and of course, dessert. Stop by their office or call (970) 641-4009 to make reservations
