Hard to believe, but Thanksgiving is a just a week away, which means Christmas is right around the corner too. And per Christmas tradition, we’ll be watching the tree lighting at Addison Circle this Friday night; if you’re doing that too, join us after for drinks at the Mucky Duck! And over in Plano at the Shops at Legacy, there’s the Lights at Legacy party on Sunday from 4-7p. There’s lots of fun stuff to do with the family in the afternoon, culminating in the lighting of the new Legacy Christmas Tree at 6:30p. When the kids head home, you oughta head over to Ringo’s Pub, Scruffy Duffies, or the Brixton for some Christmas cheer served in a pint or rocks glass.
Our Harder Concepts Family has a few traditions we do during the year, like our St. Patrick’s Day parties and Halloween costume contests. One of those is the annual Thanksgiving potluck at the Mucky Duck in Addison. While it’s not a crazy throwdown like Mardi Gras, we love it because it’s a lower-key get-together that has the feel of a Friendsgiving hangout. For years, we’ve been cooking the turkey and inviting our regulars to bring sides and desserts, and it always ends up being a fun gathering, with plenty of pie and green bean casserole. This year, we’re doing our annual Thanksgiving potluck on Tuesday 11/21 at the Mucky Duck, as well as another potluck on Wednesday 11/22 at Saintsbury Tavern. We’d love for y’all to be a part of our Thanksgiving holiday gatherings, so whip up your favorite side or dessert and join us!
