Thanksgiving dinner is different for every family. Some families have a loving peaceful dinner while others can barely get the turkey to the table before they cuss out their auntie. How receptive would you be to paying for your plate?
I mean most of the time there's the potluck option but what if Granny said I got it all but I'm charging $30 a plate?
Now for the real questions because if it's $30 for your plate...
If you just came for dessert cause you ate somewhere else but their sweet potato pie skills ain't up to par how much for a dessert plate? What if you just came to see everybody will there be a cover charge?
Clearly, there are some details that need to be worked out before I suggest implementing this in 2 weeks.
