As we break for the Thanksgiving holiday weekend, we want to take a moment to say how tremendously thankful to all of our readers, our sponsors, spouses, friends, and family that give us the support to keep Sprudge chugging along. We’re also grateful for Pumpkin Spice Lattes, Peppermint Mochas, Mulled Cider, and Egg Nog Macchiatos. We hope your Thanksgiving is full of joy and delicious food and coffee – but remember, don’t go overboard and weird your family out. And for our international readers who don’t live in Thanksgivingland, go ahead and eat some turkey.

Cider & nog, natch.

1/2 of lives directly above a cafe called Coffeehouse NW, located in Portland’s scenic West Burnside Corridor. We’re regulars here, and so we’re happy to pass along info to our Portland-area readers that Coffeehouse NW will be open on Thanksgiving until 12pm, and are donating all of the day’s earnings to a charity. Did your cafe do something special for Thanksgiving? Do you know of a place that’s going above and beyond for the holiday? Feel free to let us know in the comments section.

We’ll leave you with this classic, gorgeous, hand-drawn Termite Terrace era Warner Bros. cartoon from 1949, directed by Arthur Davis. Have a happy holiday, friends, and we’ll be back next week with more Sprudgey goodness. [youtube]NOBqGEfhHKw[/youtube]
