For less fuss this Thanksgiving, a few restaurants will open Thursday for holiday dinner.
Spicy Monkey Cafe in downtown Oakland holds its "Day of Giving" complimentary dinner. Bring 10 cans of food to the restaurant by today and get a free meal ticket for Thanksgiving dinner. For example, if you have a party of two, drop off 20 cans of food. All cans collected will be donated to the Alameda County Community Food Bank. Dinner includes an entree and a special treat.
