What you think everyone else should work Thanksgiving so you can sit on your ass and be waited on hand and foot! I'm sure Walmarts snack bar is open!
Just a thought

River City's buffet and another restaurant, Lewy Nines, are serving Thanksgiving dinner. The buffet is almost twice the cost of Lewy Nines, but the food selection will be bigger.

Fischer's in Belleville serves Thanksgiving dinner. And in St. Louis the Millenium (used to be the Clarion) serves Thanksgiving with ice sculptures. It's a cool place too. It's that restaurant that rotates and you can see the whole city.
guessing

I have tried Gallagher's? I'm on their email list but I can't remember if they sent one out about Thanksgiving. There will be a Thanksgiving Dinner at SSPS in Waterloo, donations accepted, anyone may attend, it is not just for the less fortunate.

Dear WFT,
It seems that you have a bad attitude. There is nothing wrong with eating out on Thanksgiving and some people are happy to work the Holidays because they need the money. Years ago I worked at a restaurant on Thanksgiving and now I have another job where I'll be working and being paid extra, I don't really need the money now but I'm glad that my employer recongizes the Holiday.

I dont think I have a bad attitude... I just happen to know many people that are being forced to work the holiday at the big box stores. These companies are in it for themselves... they could care less whether their employees get to spend the holidays with their families!

Welcome to the real World. Are you actually just now realizing that businesses are out to make money? And yes sometimes a job may require you to work when you don't want to.

You are another result of the "everyone gets a trophy generation". Talk to you parents and grandparents about sacrifice for the good of the family. Your bitching is an insult to them.

Believe me I have sacrificed myself alot. I am a nurse and have worked many of holidays but that is a whole lot different than someone having to go into work on Thanksgiving to open up early for black friday. Why cant the stores just open up normally with the same sales etc vs opening up during the middle of the night... let see how many people get mugged and robbed out there shopping in the middle of the night! As far as I am concerned you are an insult to think that it is alright to put people in harms way to make a $ a few hours early!

Did you ever consider that some people WANT to work on thanksgiving. Not everyone celebrates, some people aren't from here and don't have family, working is actually a pleasant distraction for them, the holiday pay is nice too.

wtf - You sacrificed alot for a profession that you chose to go into? Hope you're not my nurse if I ever have to be in the hospital on a holiday. Wouldn't want you to have to wait on me hand and foot.

I would be willing to bet that the stores couldnt open if only the people who wanted to work showed up!

Your right... there is no sense arguing about this. I did hear that I was part of the majority that thinks this is wrong. Fox 2 ran a poll the other night asking people if they would be out for the middle of the night black friday sales and 73% said no! This morning on the Today Show millions of people are angry that the retailers are opening up on Thanksgiving and during the night due to the same reasons I stated. They are taking away from family time as well as not being concerned with shoppers safety! I am done but it feels good that I am with the majority unlike you losers!
Agreed

I don't care what fox 2 poll said. The fact is its all about supply and demand. Obviously people love black Friday sales, if not the stores would be closed...duhhh.

Let me elaborate. The stores aren't staying open to stick it to their employees, they're staying open to do what stores do...make money. If you work in retail you should know this, just like if you work in the medical field you should know that people don't stop getting sick.
