Up in Canada (or technically “down” in Canada if you’re coming from Detroit) Canadians celebrate Thanksgiving the 2nd Monday of October to give thanks at the end of a bountiful season. This is done by sacrificing a moose or other small animal to our non-denominational God of Harvest, Tim Horton. While we will not be performing the entire ceremony this weekend as it can only be done on Canadian soil, we WILL be serving our version of a Thanksgiving feast!.
In many aspects Canadian Thanksgiving is quite similar to American Thanksgiving, except we do not celebrate Black Friday the day after Thanksgiving, we celebrate it the day after Christmas and call it Boxing Day. True story …the more you know…
Help us celebrate our first Canadian Thanksgiving in America, this weekend with a Thanksgiving Brunch! We will be serving a Turkey Benny, Pumpkin Pie Tarts, Cranberry Scones and of course the traditional Thanksgiving Poutine.
We’ll be celebrating Saturday Oct 6 and Sunday Oct 7 9am to 3pm
