When: Thu., Nov. 26, 11 a.m.-5 p.m. 2015
If you're stuck with a sour Thanksgiving Day — no immediate family in the vicinity, not enough time off work, no desire to sit alone at home and stare down the walls — fear not. Truck up the Great River Road in the direction of the beautiful Pere Marquette State Park and its exceptionally lovely lodge (Illinois Route 100, 13653 Lodge Boulevard, Grafton, Illinois; 618-786-2331 or www.pmlodge.net ). From 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. today you can dine on a full-course, traditional Thanksgiving feast within the rustic and restorative confines of this old characterful lodge. The meal costs $10.95 to $28.95.
