Being a college town, Missoula has many occupants who may not be celebrating a traditional family Thanksgiving.


Perhaps you and your friends are unable to go home for the holiday, but still want to enjoy a turkey dinner without all of the cooking and cleaning. Or maybe your family has opted to spend even more time together this year by eliminating all the work of hosting a Thanksgiving dinner.

Or maybe you just can't take one more year of mom's nagging, drunk uncle Terry and the 'ol lady insisting you get off your turkey & pie stuffed ass to hang Christmas lights.

Here are a few places in Missoula that will be serving Thankgiving dinner this Thursday. We here at The Blaze are beyond thankful that you have chosen to make our station a part of your life and we hope that your holiday is filled with food, fun, friends & family. Cheers!
