All that food – all those dishes.

Looking to get your fill of turkey, mashed potatoes and all those other Thanksgiving fixings but not thrilled by the idea of the cleanup?Head over to the Hickory House, where the restaurant will be putting on its annual free feast today. From 11:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., the restaurant will serve up enough grub to feed the entire town. OK, maybe not that much, but it seems that way.

The point is, it’s not hard to get full. All the Hickory House asks is a $5 donation, which will go toward the Buddy Program.
