Christmas Day means a lot of things for a lot of different people.
For some, it’s one day out of the year where it is acceptable to lounge around with family in matching reindeer pajamas while shoving your mouth with cookies and washing all your cheer down with some eggnog.
For others, it’s a day to spend at a church service, or seated around a formal dinner table with a homemade roast as the centerpiece.
And for many, it’s a time to relax. It’s the one day of the year where offices are closed, and therefore, no one expects you to respond to emails. Borderstan wants you to unplug, unwind, relax and eat — and several neighborhood restaurants are making that possible.
Whether you have family in town and are looking for a way to feed them, or you want to be free of dirty dishes on one of the most relaxing days, there are options on where to grab a meal in, and around, the neighborhood!
