My first US thanksgiving

I found myself Texas for thanksgiving, it wasn’t planned as I’m down here on business and as its not a something I would normally celebrate (I’m not American so what would be the motivation!?!) it was pretty uneventful.

In terms of keeping my thanksgiving true to the spirit of the holiday, I skipped the tradition of eating turkey and instead opted for wings in hot sauce, although I did watch some of the NFL games on TV.

What was a thankful for? That the bar was open and serving me beer and wings on a day when everything else seemed to have closed down. The beer in question was “Longhammer IPA”  which I’d not tried before but its pretty good. Lighter and less hoppy than most IPAs I’ve tried, but definitly one I would order again.
