Where can my family eat on Christmas?
It's great you want to make sure your family gets a nice Christmas meal even though you won't be able to cook for them. Unfortunately (or fortunately, if you're a restaurant employee), there aren't many options for eating out on Christmas here. Even McDonald's is closed. I did find one restaurant that's open — Ming's Garden on Milan Road in Perkins Township. For the record, I didn't call every restaurant in town, so there are probably others, but I didn't turn any up in the dozen or so calls I made. If your family doesn't want to celebrate Christmas with Chinese food, like the family in The Christmas Story movie, you might consider deputizing a family member to cook something simple, like spaghetti and salad. After all, it's the being together that really counts. You could also pick up a prepared dinner on Christmas Eve from restaurants like Bob Evans, and have your family just warm up the food on Christmas for dinner. Either way, I hope you and they have a happy holiday.
If anyone else knows of other restaurants in town open on Christmas or if you have other suggestions, please post them below.
