Looking to go out today?

Maybe you need a reprieve from holiday cooking. Maybe you want to grab a drink after a Christmas movie. Maybe you’ve got cabin fever.

Whatever the reason, if you want to dine out for Christmas, some restaurants will remain open. Here’s a short list of places to try. Just remember to call ahead: some eateries operate under reduced hours to give their staffs a chance for merry-making.

For more detailed information, check out the Carolina Epicurean blog‘s Holiday Dining Out Guide. Blogger Laura Huff has compiled a list of holiday hour changes at many area restaurants. (For more information about Huff, check out this profile from Xpress.)

    We will be OPEN on Christmas with a FREE feast. No plans? Plans finish early? Come and see Alfonso for a couple shells, some baked ham, sweet potatoes and the like. Thank you, dear villagers, for the joy and community you have given us throughout the year!
