Just about everyone is open Christmas Eve, but the real challenge is who is open Christmas Day. Sure, your corner 7-11 will never let you down when you're seeking a last-minute carton of half-and-half, but what if you seek a bit more than a quick dash in and out of a shop?
Here are some places that will be open Christmas Day.
44763 Five Mile Road, Plymouth
When the neighbor's dogs devoured the turkey in "A Christmas Story," the family opted to dine at a Chinese restaurant. That logic sticks: Asian Buffet & Sushi will be open from 11:30 a.m.-9:30 p.m. Christmas Day.
44681 Ann Arbor Road West
If you need to get out, perhaps for an omelette or burger, consider a stop at our old checker-overalled friend. The eatery will be open 7 a.m.-2 p.m. Christmas Day, so you never have to go without a Slim Jim.
3500 N. Lilley Road, Canton
The Chopstick House is open noon-10 p.m. Christmas Day. Stop in for Peking Duck, beef with broccoli, vegetarian and light options, and plenty more.
39550 Ann Arbor Road East, Plymouth
Denny's will be open all day, sticking to its 24-hour schedule, so whether you need something at 4 a.m. or 4 p.m. or a late-night pick-me-up, there you go.
44515 Ann Arbor Road West, Plymouth
Red Dragon Restaurant will be open from noon-10 p.m. Christmas Day. Drop in for all the classics, from egg rolls to egg drop soup, sesame chicken to sweet & sour pork.
