With the changing season, it can be challenging
to figure out whos open and when for dining out in
Moab. But do not despair, most of Moabs restaurants
stay open year-round, but they adjust their hours to meet
public demand. Each monthMoab Happenings endeavors
to call around and update the restaurant guide to reflect
this seasonal metamorphosis. This month I called around
and as a service to those who would like to treat themselves,
friends & families to Thanksgiving Dinner without the
fuss of cooking and cleaning up after, (as of press time)
heres a run-down of who is serving on this special
