Stay Out of the Kitchen This Thanksgiving in Park City
For many aspiring Food Network wannabes, Thanksgiving is a time to show off culinary skills, crafting the newest spaghetti squash incarnation or rolling pie dough from scratch.
If your skills are more in line with the Pillsbury Doughboy and “cranberry sauce with the can marks still showing,” you might want to consider taking advantage of the turkey day opportunities at one of Park City’s celebrated restaurants. We turned to the Park City Restaurant Association for their list of participating eateries.
