Traditions are a great thing to have, especially holiday traditions. But, sometimes you need to add your little part to the ongoing tradition in order to write your part of the story. Although we love to wax poetic about our favorite Thanksgiving traditions, we thought it would be a bold move to discuss what we intend to bring to the table this year, that maybe our grandmothers would probably frown upon, but that fifty years from now, some spoiled brat descendent of ours will be totally eating seconds of our dish, when others didn't even get a first serving because the kid is a total jerk, and because the dish is that good.
Sometimes you’ve just got to get away, and DJ Hanabi and Insane Dane are no strangers to the call to wander. The holidays make a great time to take a holiday. Insane Dane will be reporting from Florida while visiting family. Hanabi will also be visiting family in Mexico.
