If you can't get through the day without a slice or pie or an omelette, consider a stop at our old checker-overalled friend. The eatery will be open 7 a.m.-1 p.m. on Turkey Day, a good way to start the day or celebrate it if you're inclined to dine early and without all the fuss.

Kids' options and drink specials available, too.
