The Butterball Turkey Talk-Line may get inundated with calls on Thanksgiving and the days leading up to the holiday, but when it comes to internet searches there are no turkeys in site. Google Maps analyzed Thanksgiving trends from the past three years to reveal some hilarious and unexpected topics. For example, the top national day-of search is “buffet restaurants,” and in New York City specifically, Thanksgiving is apparently a day to find tattoo shops (matching ink for the whole family?). The folks over at CityLab compiled the data into two fun infographics that show the surprising priorities of Americans around the holiday.

Residents of Dallas and Detroit seem to be unsatisfied with their Turkey Day meals, as they’re on the hunt for some additional greasy grub. In Chicago and LA, people look like they need a break from the family, hoping to get some relief at the bar or hookah bar. And in Miami, appearances for the big meal are key, with these Floridians searching out beauty salons.

The national trends are a bit more predictable, but we’re not quite sure where one would find a shop devoted to ham.
