I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving. While I didn’t, get to go home it was a very busy week for me. I really enjoyed the time off. From trying the new burger joint that’s only open on weekdays, to reading a new book, to going to a tasting room with friends — it was quite eventful. On Sunday, a new friend and I headed over to The Vintage here in Eugene. Now you know, me always looking for the best brunch. This one is up there. The food is amazing, the ambience is great, the service, etc. All the things you could want. And they have $4 mimosa and Bellinis (I still have yet to find a bottomless place but that’s probably for the better. I went with the “Benedict Special” while my friend Olivia had “The Eugene” crepe. This spot is known for their crepes. I could’ve even had my eggs Bennie in a crepe but I like the classics and am more of a savory than sweet. Also their hollandaise sauce is made in house so I HAD to go for the Benny.
Side note: It’s officially been six months since I’ve been in the Pacific Northwest (PNW). Like any move or change it has not been easy. While I miss my family and the comfort of knowing the city like the back of my hand it’s nice to be making some new friends and finding new spots. See below for some scrumptious food.

How did you spend your Thanksgiving break?
I hope you all had a good time with your family.
