Howdy Pilgrim!

by Alan Rider

No, I’m not channeling John Wayne (well, okay, maybe just a little).  Actually I’m thinking ahead to this month’s all-American holiday: Thanksgiving.

340xSure, sure, you could spend the day slaving over a hot stove and watching football with Uncle Ned like every year.  Or you could enjoy an authentic thanksgiving dinner Pilgrim-style at Massachusetts’ world-famous Plimoth Plantation.

The historical park’s annual Harvest Dinner with the Pilgrims offers more-or-less period-correct food (and lots of it) along with entertainment and the chance to practice your 17th-century table manners (forks? we don’t need no stinkin’ forks!).  The price includes admission to the park, and there are dates throughout the month of November just in case you don’t feel right about leaving Uncle Ned alone for the holiday.

Thanks Buddy — cool blog you’ve got there. Kind of ironic though, huh, blogging about a pre-technology society? Love to come have Thanksgiving dinner with you guys some time!
