Our Thanksgiving was a little untraditional this year, 46 years old and for the first time in my lifetime our family went out for Thanksgiving dinner. (Have I mentioned how much I love tradition?)
We didn't go just anywhere, we went to "The Top Of The Bridge" and if you were going to go out for Thanksgiving this would be on the top of one's list of where to go ... but not having Thanksgiving at home???
David joined our family gathering for the first time this year, that was nice. The food was great, amazing as a matter of fact. It was served buffet style and any Thanksgiving dish plus much much more was prepared by top chefs. I did get to spend a little time with some of the people I love most in the world. No one had to chop, mix, cook, clean or do dishes who knows maybe not so traditional may become a tradition.
After dinner, David and I stopped by to see friends, that was nearly as spending time with my family. All in all it was a great day, I have much to be Thankful for.

I can't imagine not having Thanksgiving at my sister in laws home. However, I'd be happy to consider meeting at really nice restaurant. I'd want to meet up later at our home so we can sit around and socialize, then I'd be happy. Glad your day was happy.

Great selection: Top of the Bridge is a fabulous restaurant.

I live in Boca Raton myself! So hello neighbor!

Hugs, Rose

Tradition is only as valuable as the people you share it with. You shared the day with the ones you love and knew gratitude, and that's what it's all about. The bonus ~ top chefs did all the cooking! And top dishwashers did all the washing...

Glad you had a Happy Thanksgiving!

Coy, you sure had a good time on top of that bridge. Why not? I like Gigi's comment about the "top diswashers" doing the dishes. What could be better? DB
