Tuscaloosa restaurants serve Thanksgiving specials
Due to the few days that UA students have off for Thanksgiving, many people who live out of state are not able to go home. As a result, many of The University of Alabama’s students stay in Tuscaloosa over Thanksgiving break. However, just because you can’t go home doesn’t mean that you can’t have a Thanksgiving meal. Here are a list of restaurants and what they will be serving on Thanksgiving Day. Turkey, dressing and all the trimmings are included.
