Well, we invited friends from out of town for thanksgiving weekend. We just heard from them tonight, so we started calling restaurants. We knew the pickin's would be slim . . . I finally found a restaurant that said yes, they were serving Thanksgiving dinner. "Are you open Thanksgiving Day?" "yes" "There will be four of us. We just found out that we have out of town company coming!" "We can seat you at two tables of two - no where near each other. You've waited entirely too late to call!" "ahhh, thank you for your help . . ." This is a local Moravian restaurant that we frequently take out of town company too. I may have to rethink our patronage though. I know it's late, but we didn't know our friends were coming. A simple we can't help you for parties that size would have worked. We got Christmas reservations on much shorter notice in Charleston last year when plans changed. We did find a restaurant. One we haven't tried before. Now it's an adventure.
