During the Thanksgiving holidays, Houstonians are on their computers or mobile devices seeking out help and things to do. What are we looking for?

According to Google Maps, on the day before Thanksgiving, we are searching liquor, movies and live music. (Maybe it's because all those family members are back in town and looking for a little time away from mom and dad?)

On Thanksgiving Day, we are prepping the feast while looking for a little sustenance from —  a donut shop?

And on Black Friday, we want to relax with a trip to the Zoo or we want to get away from turkey overload with a spicy meal at an Indian restaurant.

Here are Google Maps trending terms for H-Town:
