Gobble Gobble! Rocky Point Weekend Rundown!

boobar-black-moods-620x155 Gobble Gobble! Rocky Point Weekend Rundown!Sponsored this week by Boo Bar – featuring The Black Moods turkeys this Thanksgiving !

Get ready to bundle up at the beach this weekend!  At our home, we managed to get the turkey and stuffing from CS, rolls and appetizers from Sam’s, fresh Sonora asparagus and dates, cranberries and black olives delivered by family, and apples ready for pie-makings. To my astonishment, Sam’s had flat run out of potatoes yesterday, but the bodega next door stepped up so our Thanksgiving will be complete.  Yet, there are so many spots around town serving Thanksgiving brunches, lunches, and dinners this year, it’s tempting to just treat your turkeys and yourself to having someone else cook (reservations encouraged)!  Whether you’re dining at home or out, Happy Thanksgiving celebration to you and yours.  Let’s run down the weekend (and keep the umbrellas handy – gasp)!

Nov 28th  Thanksgiving!

*Check with your favorite eatery for traditional Thanksgiving dinners*  (Reservations highly encouraged – required at some spots – check our Thanksgiving 2019 list for ideas:  …..)
