The Thanksgiving Wrap: Where to eat, drink, donate, and more

WILMINGTON — Made plans yet for Thanksgiving? Perhaps a small gathering with family — or just ordering dinner out with your spouse? Watching football all day on the couch or volunteering at a local food bank?

Whatever your plans for Nov. 26, a couple of reads below — which you may have missed over the last few weeks — could help inform your decisions. Or at the very least, they’ll entertain and/or inspire you.

Happy Thanksgiving from the staff of Port City Daily.

The season of giving

Nonprofits and local food banks are feeling the squeeze more than ever during a pandemic. While they need help feeding families on Thanksgiving Day, they also will have to restock their pantries to help the community throughout the holiday season.

Still don’t have Thanksgiving Day dinner handled?

With gathering limits and statewide mask mandates tightening — not to mention recommendations for folks to stay put and not travel this holiday — perhaps your Thanksgiving plans have shifted last-minute. Or maybe you’re just Queen Procrastinator. Whichever the case, here are a few places open on Nov. 26.

Another round, please!

What. A. Year.

We all deserve quite a few cheersing come Thanksgiving Day — even if only with our pets and closest family/household members. We’ve made it this far, folks, and our local breweries are here to make it more palatable.

Decorations before or after Christmas?

Where do you stand?

Welp, the city starts decking the halls and stringing the holly the very day after Halloween. We had to find out why.

Signed, your county…

Brunswick and New Hanover county officials released a letter last week amid the rise in Covid-19 cases, urging safe practices during the holiday, including mask-wearing, limiting gatherings, and supporting local businesses online for holiday shopping. Here’s the rundown…

Unsheltered population becomes talk of the (down)town

The city has begun renovations on the downtown Riverwalk Information and Visitor’s Center. While the move will positively affect tourism and beautify the city, it’s also affecting a population of the community often overlooked.
