Ah, it’s that time of year again. The days are getting shorter and the temperature is theoretically getting colder. Soon it will be time for you to either run around town trying to get gifts for all those special someones or break down and order everything online at the last minute. Well leave the running to us. Over the last couple of weeks, we’ve scoured Cambridge for locally sourced and sold gifts for just about everyone on your list. Don’t worry: We’ll let you take all the credit.

Dining Out in Cambridge This Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving is a wonderful time to catch up with loved ones while scarfing down all the hearty, savory foods you can stomach. It also requires hours (if not days) of prep time, can occasionally reignite years-old family feuds and generally leads to a mountain of dirty dishes that you, as the cook, will somehow be responsible for washing. So, hey, we don’t blame you if you’re looking to eat out on Thanksgiving this time around.

Luckily, there are a ton of Cambridge restaurants that plan to stay open on the holiday, allowing you to sit back, relax and let someone else take care of all the cooking and cleaning. Bon appétit!

Scout Out! Lone Star Comes to Cambridge

Give me your tired, your poor, your tacos. With much anticipation, Cambridge will open its golden doors to Lone Star Taco Bar. The restaurant will establish a second location in East Cambridge and anticipates serving their first taco in the new space by December 2014 or January 2015.

quesoLone Star Taco Bar (479 Cambridge St., Allston) was opened in January 2012 right next door to its sister restaurant, Deep Ellum. With the same owners (and even the same kitchen), the two restaurants share a core mission: to provide delicious and inspired cuisine, buttressed by a lovingly curated drink menu, in an environment delightfully free of pretense.
