When to fly around Thanksgiving?

I'm going to be flying from Atlanta to DC around Thanksgiving, and I'm trying to figure out the least painful way to do it. Unusually, I don't actually care where I am on Thanksgiving day—I'm go to an event the following weekend. When will be less crazy at the airport?

I'd rather not fly Friday, since it's my boyfriend's birthday (and he's already being very nice to go on this trip), so that leaves the Wednesday before Thanksgiving or Thanksgiving itself. I'm sure the Weds. before will be awful, but what will it be like on Thursday? Will there be anywhere in the airport open to eat? It seems like time of day might be very important on Thursday. I've never flown around Thanksgiving before, so I'm not sure what to expect.
