Thanksgiving Weekend is upon us and many of us will be celebrating by cooking a turkey dinner, but what if you still want to celebrate with friends and family and you just don’t want to spend all day in the kitchen? Lucky for you, there are a few restaurants on Vancouver’s North Shore who are happy to do the cooking for you! And the serving … and (best of all) the cleaning up! Here are a few of the best Thanksgiving Dinner Spots on Vancouver’s North Shore:
