If you live in Juneau and are tired of turkey or don’t feel like cooking, you’re mostly out of luck.
There aren’t many options in the capital city for dining out on Thanksgiving.
The Empire called more than 40 bars and restaurants to determine what’s open on the holiday, and found hardly anyone will be open.
Among the restaurants that said they will be doing business Thursday are TK Maguire’s and the downtown Domino’s.
The Domino’s located in the Mendenhall Valley will not be open on Thanksgiving.
Hangar on the Wharf will be closed to business Thursday, but it will be the site of the Salvation Army’s annual Thanksgiving community free dinner. That event is 11 a.m.-1:30 p.m.
The restaurants that will be open have fairly limited hours.
TK Maguire’s, a downtown eatery on Whittier Street, will be open from 10 a.m.-4 p.m; the downtown Domino’s will be open from 11 a.m.-5 p.m.
Those who prefer Wild Turkey to turkey and stuffing will have a couple of options for grabbing a drink.
While most bars are closed, Viking Lounge will be open from noon- 2 a.m., and the Alaskan Hotel and Bar will be open from 8 p.m.-2 a.m.
There are more options for anyone who needs to do some ultra-last-second grocery shopping.
Fred Meyer will be open Thursday from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m.; Super Bear IGA will be open from 8 a.m.-4 p.m.; Foodland IGA will be open from 6 a.m.-6 p.m.; and Safeway will be open 5 a.m. until midnight as usual.
