Seasons Change

"Seasons change and so did I."

It's soon to be Thanksgiving - think 10 days - but for the past two weeks or so there has been the usual hue and cry over the (typical) early arrival of the big buy season of the year.  Christmas comes but once a year, but it always starts in October.  Maybe we need to accept this new reality, and allow ourselves to feel that seasonal love that much earlier.  Why wait for just one short day to feel some Christmas Spirit?

That being said, Thanksgiving - the Holiday of Food - does come first on the calendar.  BT is not open on the Fourth Thursday of November, although we have received numerous inquiries regarding our schedule for this day.  We will be feasting and thanking at home as usual this year, but there are a few places in the general area that will be open to the dining public.  I've got a few links to help you find them

The Robert Morris Inn in Oxford: recently reviewed by the Baltimore Sun, the Inn has been bought by the former chef from the Inn at Perry Cabin, and seems very promising.  We were tempted  by their Christmas packages...  The Thanksgiving menu is here.

A little closer to home, the Inn at the Osprey, under Chef Abby, is a perfect "home away from home" choice for TG.  Their menu for the 25th of November is here.

Also in Rock Hall is the Bay Wolf.  They are advertising a Thanksgiving Buffet for $24 per person, from noon to 6PM.  It is a very popular experience, so that needs booking now.  Their most recent ad is on page 16 of the latest Tidewater Trader.

Travelling down 213 to Centreville, you could book at brique.  They are advertising an "all inclusive Thanksgiving feast", beginning at 2PM, for $30 per person.  I don't see their menu online, but here is the website for further study.

One year Kevin and I followed the northern path of 213, and enjoyed the opulence of the Hotel DuPont for the Thanksgiving Buffet. The food was seriously mediocre, but you couldn't beat the atmosphere for a Holiday Experience.  This year it looks like they will be doing a prix-fixe for $85 per in the beautiful Green Room; plus the buffet offering at $55 in the Brandywine Room. 

That's all I can find right now.  If anyone has any other suggestions, be sure to post them in a comment.  Meanwhile, we've still got 10 9 days to get organized!
