Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday. I love to cook turkey and stuffing and everything that goes with the meal. For years now we’ve hosted what we call ‘refuge’ Thanksgiving and invite over anyone who is far from family (or looking to avoid family). It’s always a great time. I also have always loved the day after. There’s nothing better than leftover turkey and college football and hockey are on from 7 AM until 10 PM. I look forward to that lazy Friday.
One of the things I’ve loved the most about Thanksgiving is it’s avoided the commercialism that takes over every other holiday. There are no gifts to buy, or dinners to book or really any excuse to spend money on things we don’t really need, so I’ve hated the ‘Black Friday’ curse that’s gotten worse and worse over the past 10 years. I boycott Black Friday and don’t spend any money at all, especially at retailers who force their employees to come in at 3 or 4 AM or even worse on Thanksgiving day.
There has been a response to this though called Small Business Saturday, and I like that idea. We usually go to an arts and crafts show on that Saturday and support people making things by hand themselves. This year we thought we’d participate too. Running Saturday through Monday we will offer 25% off all our Library wines. I’ve dug through the inventory report and pulled everything we have enough of to offer for sales. In some instances there are just 2-3 cases of a wine left so things may not last. We’ll have three wines from 2006: Eaglepoint Ranch Syrah, Uvas Creek Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon, and Santa Cruz Mountains Cabernet Sauvignon. From 2007: Eaglepoint Ranch Syrah, Uvas Creek Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon and from 2009 Santa Cruz Mountains Cabernet Sauvignon.
To get the 25% off enter the code SBS (for Small Business Saturday) at check out. I’ve entered exact inventory numbers into the system so as soon as a wine sells out it will stop showing on the website. Happy Thanksgiving!
