Add safety to the menu if dining out for Thanksgiving

title

By Lisa Braxton

According to the National Restaurant Association, 15 million people will eat their Thanksgiving Day meal at a restaurant. In addition, 32 million Americans are expected to dine out while shopping on Black Friday. If a favorite eating establishment will be serving your Thanksgiving holiday meal, take a few minutes to look around before you’re seated. Make sure the building appears to be in a condition that makes you feel comfortable. See if the main entrance is wide and opens outward to allow an easy exit. Check for any materials or storage items that might block the exits.
