As with just about everything else in 2020, Thanksgiving is going to be different this year.

Due to the recent rise in COVID-19 cases in Northwest Arkansas, large gatherings will be less common, as locals opt for smaller, more intimate gatherings with just immediate or smaller groups of friends.

As a result, several local restaurants are offering to-go options to help folks celebrate this year.

We’ve started a list of some of the options we’ve heard about in Fayetteville. Feel free to add to-go Thanksgiving meal options you know about in the comments below.

Be safe, y’all.
