Gobble, Gobble and Happy Thanksgiving! November is a time for homecoming and historically Thanksgiving is one of the most travel heavy times of the year. According to various websites 56% of modern day Thanksgiving Pilgrims will travel at least 100 miles by car, with the average distance of 214 miles, but Orbitz, the travel website, has air travel at its peak in July. So armed with this information, the moral of this story is that all travel can be a hassle no matter what day you travel, it just depends on who you ask!
I am blessed with the fact that all my family now lives nearby and my even more special family of friends are right in my neighborhood. The Wednesday before Thanksgiving is a huge night for us to get together and enjoy some quiet time before the hectic holidays hit. This year we will be at Bear Creek together for the Pub Crawl. What a great way to host a party…let Bear Creek do all the work!
We will begin the night in the Trails End Café where Victoria and Ben are the Mixologists for the night. Bar None Entertainment will be spinning tunes and handing out prizes for trivia. Then we will crawl on down to The Turkey Bar that will be set up in the rock garden with patio heaters and fire pits to keep us toasty and warm. But it is the cool games that I am most looking forward to at The Turkey Bar. There will be four of them all based on Minute to Win It games but with a Thanksgiving twist.
When it is time to move on to the third bar we will be heading into The Grille for a drink special and to listen to Jake Kaligis and The New Constitution play. By crawling through the resort and visiting all three bars, I can then be entered to win an off peak season pass OR an overnight stay in The Hotel at Bear Creek. What an awesome prize!!!
So on Monday of Thanksgiving week I can say that I am so looking forward to this Wednesday night and spending a fun night at Bear Creek with all my friends. Hope to see you at the Turkey Bar.
