2. Thanksgiving buffet at India Palace. Wait, what?

Yes, India Palace is hosting a special buffet for the day, complete with a turkey carving station. This might be your most affordable bet at $16 per adult and $6.95 per child. Plus, is anyone going to think of going here on Thanksgiving? It might be the least crowded option as well. More details here.
