Are you wondering what’s open today? Your best bet its to assume that most places are closed (libraries, museums, indoor play locations, stores, etc). The exceptions are some grocery stores, restaurants, and movie theaters.

We are confirming the list of opens and closures for 2019. Closures are typically not announced until a few days before the holiday.

We shared some ideas for Thanksgiving Games a couple of years ago. There’s our version of Pictionary – played with an iPad and projected to the TV. We’ve got a word list for you. Plus we’ve created a few Mad Libs style fill in the blanks.
