Shameless self-promotion: A while back, we launched a weekly newsletter, The Awesomeness Digest. Focused on food, restaurants, and culture, we have covered topics like eating Belizean rat; working as a cook in a Viking-themed park; the baffling concepts of Lørdagspizzaen and Fredagstacoen; other oddities.

Thanksgiving notes


Yes, it's Thanksgiving, and it's great because it means we have the next few days off. And apparently there's some other stuff involving turkeys and indians and something, I don't know, I'm not American.


Here are a couple of random notes on how to make Thanksgiving more worthwhile:

Wine is boring, drink beer with the turkey. I mean, come on, it's time to flip off tradition. There are plenty of beers that go well with the bird. Try a few saisons or grand crus for example, and you should be able to find something pretty easily. That's a bit Belgian (you know, old Europe), though, and my choice would be a dark lager. Session Black is a perfect choice. It is light enough to go with any type of poultry, yet has enough backbone to stand up against the gravy. A perfect middle-man.

Not related to your Thanksgiving... but we're in the middle of setting up a site intended as a replacement for another site some have said they miss. And in the next few weeks we'll need a couple of testers that possess two things: 1) a Facebook account, and 2) opinions about restaurants and markets and what have you. E-mail us if you're interested.
