If you’re spending time in or simply traveling through the San Quintin area this coming Thursday – November 25th – here’s a list of where you can stop by to enjoy a delicious, traditional Thanksgiving dinner.
Easter isn’t Easter without an egg hunt and it doesn’t feel like Christmas without a decorated tree, right? And so it is with Thanksgiving – the day is simply not complete without sitting down to enjoy a traditional Thanksgiving dinner with turkey/ham, mashed potatoes, stuffing and pumpkin pie.
