You Think Homeless People Have it Bad??

Well, they do. I can't compare my Thanksgiving experience with theirs. But I do have this tale of woe to share:
This year, Thanksgiving happens to fall on my little brother's birthday, so my mom took the easy way out and decided that instead of cooking, she would let him pick a restaurant for our Thanksgiving meal.
He chose Golden Corral.
Golden Corral, where the South Valley and East Mountain elite meet to eat.
So I was able to have a globetrotting meal of turkey, spring rolls, and alfredo sauce. And cotton candy for dessert. Luckily, I have a second dinner to go to later at an actual house, where the the cooks aren't required to wear hair nets. I will be armed with a growler of Marble's Dark Holiday, though that is more for the other attendants than for myself. Responsible boy has to drive home from Rio Rancho afterwards. To keep with the poultry theme, I am going to open up Santa Fe's Kickin' Chicken Bourbon Barrel Barleywine. I have heard great reviews of the beer, and what better day to judge for myself?
I hope your Thanksgiving is joyous and buffet-free this year!

You're gonna love the Kickin' Chicken. Had one of those already here on T-day, along with a Widmer Barrel Aged Brrrbon and several Modus Hoperandi and Marble IPA. Still a Santa Fe Imperial Porter to come. Tis a good day!

Yeah, John, I was actually thinking of you as one of the people who gave the beer a great review. I'm enjoying it right now!
Nice lineup you had today, though it doesn't look like you made it to the Imperial Porter....lightweight!
