Who’s Open on Christmas? These Guys!

I know the struggles of dining out on Christmas when you aren’t in the midst of a mega-sized family reunion. To help people of different faiths and those with distant families, I’ve made a few phone calls for you, both to the traditional “Chinese Food Christmas” places, and to other local establishments.  This year even some of our mainstay Chinese places have taken the day off, but there are others to help fill the void!  These establishments will be there to help you out on Christmas:
