It's never too soon to celebrate the holiday season!

The temperatures are dropping and the days are getting shorter but that doesn't mean we have to hibernate just yet. 2020 is the year to extend the holiday season, just because it's the first week of November does not make it any less magical to dance around to Wham's, Last Christmas, at home in my favorite pajamas. This weekend, I've decided to get my ultimate comfort on with great food, delicious drinks, and joy filled holiday movies. Tis' the season!

Supporting Favorite Local Restaurants

In addition to voting this week I believe it is my civic duty to support local restaurants and other businesses, especially the ones that mean I don't have to cook dinner for myself. 19 Raw is a go to and I am thrilled they have decided to stay open later this year, more sriracha fries please! If you are on island, I highly recommend you check it out before it's too late!

A Cocktail and a Movie

After I fulfill both my regular and civic appetite, there is nothing better than curling up on the couch with a cocktail and a feel good flick. My new favorite pre-holiday, holiday drink is Grapefruit Cardamom Gin Fizz. The crème de la crème. It has just enough bitter and sweet, bubble and color, to make anyones' spirits jolly and their cheeks rosy. 

After that, I will light up some candles, pop on my softest Mou slippers, and whisper the sweetest words I can utter to my apple remote, "Play Holidate on Netflix."


Who can remember what we did on weekends before covid? I certainly cannot, and I'm not sure I care to.
