8 Vancouver Dinner ideas for a stress-free Thanksgiving

There are many good reasons why you don’t want to cook for Thanksgiving: no stress of shopping, no cooking, no cleaning, and spending more quality time with family. This Thanksgiving long weekend, October 9 – October 12, Vancouver chefs are busting out their best holiday dishes, traditional or innovative, and available for dine-in or take-out.

Here are the options for you to discover the best Thanksgiving dinners.
