In San Francisco, we love our Thanksgiving just as much as the next city. Families gather at home for turkey, stuffing, pumpkin pie, and football. Don’t feel like cooking? Several restaurants are open for business, including Urban Tavern at 333 O’Farrell Street in Union Square. Savor a 4-course, family-style meal with all the traditional fixings, $44 for adults, $15 for children. Best of all, you don’t have to do the dishes! http://www.urbantavernsf.com/.
