Every year, we start to sound like our parents when the holidays come around, marveling at how quickly the year went by. We cannot believe Thanksgiving 2022 is already here. And each Thanksgiving, we seem to be a little unprepared, whether it be the forgotten cranberry sauce or the unexpected need for a gluten-free dessert.

While many stores dropped their Thanksgiving Day hours during the pandemic, there are still options for last minute beer runs for that weird uncle who shows up with a buddy that no one has ever met before.
