  4. East village grille in oteen has a sign up saying they’re open! They’re taking reservations, too.

  5. Don’t forget the Grove Park Inn … and don’t forget they appreciate your business so much that they charge locals for parking!

  6. I think its sad all these folks have to work on a day we are supposed to be with family and be grateful. Sure hope the bosses are paying time and a half to their employees….

    • Just another server says:

      That’s a nice sentiment, but consider that time and a half for servers is a whopping $3.20/hour. I’ll be working a double tomorrow (at my regular $2.13/hr), and grateful for the holiday-spirit tips. Give thanks, ya’ll.

  7. Ruth Chris Steak House in the Biltmore Village
    Moe’s Original BBQ on Sweeten Creek
