Meeting up with family on Thanksgiving and need suggestions for restaurants that will be open but within five minutes of the interstate. Not looking to drive into the downtown area. Prefer non-chain places, but realize that might not be possible given we won't be able to nail down a specific time for a reservation and the holiday. I have looked on Google maps and have seen a few Denny's, Perkins, etc. but if anyone has other suggestions, I'd love to hear them.
After dinner, we'd like to take a walk before everyone gets back in their cars for the long drive home. I see that Urfer Family Park at 4000 Honore is open until midnight. Is this in a safe area to be walking around after sunset?
