Nothing brings Chattanoogans together like food, reasoned officials at Causeway, so for the third year in a row, they piled up as much Thanksgiving-themed grub as they could muster onto tables in the street between Miller Park and Miller Plaza.

Anchored by a grand piano in the middle of M.L. King Boulevard and a giant community table running the length of the block, the idea behind Causeway's One Table event is to bridge the gap between Chattanooga's new generation of upwardly mobile workers and residents who live on public assistance or under bridges just steps away from the city's emerging technology scene.
