Grocery stores open on Thanksgiving will come to your rescue if you forgot an ingredient or totally spaced on the side dish you promised to bring your aunt. Take a break from live-streaming the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade and run to the store, and if you’re too lazy to leave the house, try food and drink delivery: FreshDirect will deliver until 12pm and FoodKick until 2pm on Thanksgiving Day. If you’re really anti-grocery, you can always try to score a last-minute reservation at restaurants serving Thanksgiving dinner in NYC.
