Ventura Restaurants Open on Thanksgiving Day

Thanksgiving is around the corner, which means two things:

1. We will all take a quiet moment to reflect on all the things we’re grateful for.

2. Someone is sweating over Thanksgiving dinner.

In 1621, when the Plymouth colonists and Wampanoag Indians shared the autumn harvest feast that is acknowledged today as one of the first Thanksgiving celebrations in the colonies, everyone lent a hand. As the years proceeded the tradition of a Thanksgiving feast continued, though the number of helping hands dwindled until, basically, it was just your mom.

If you’re not a mom, this evolution might not strike you as unfair. It’s possible it might not have struck you at all. But if you are a mom, you might be looking for a respite.

Happily, Ventura offers a bountiful feast of Thanksgiving opportunities. Yes, there are Thanksgiving buffets (Four Points by Sheraton Ventura Harbor Resort has a great one).

But, with all due respect to the Pilgrims, Thanksgiving doesn’t have to be traditional.

Cuban anyone?
