Thanksgiving is tough, pilgrim. It's even tougher when you're ill-prepared. If you're staying in New York, there are plenty of ways to celebrate not being stuck in traffic or sitting on a runway. Gather some friends for a Thanksgiving dinner, make a restaurant reservation at one of these parent-friendly restaurants, or find a friendly barman at a dive bar to share the holiday with. Or if your family's in town, take them to the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade or a New York attraction. With everyone visiting relatives or in a tryptophan coma, the city is yours to enjoy. It's also a great time of year to donate to a food charity or volunteer your time—try one of these nonprofit groups.
