Wow. People are now pinning 6x more Friendsgiving invitations than they are Thanksgiving invites. I guess that makes sense because I’m not really sure Turkey Day ever really warranted an invite since it was all family. But anyhoo. Here is your Friendsgiving roundup for the day.
Friendsgiving is a Thanksgiving party for friends
Thanksgiving is traditionally a day for gathering with your family and eating turkey, but there’s a twist on the holiday as a purely social gathering, and it’s called Friendsgiving.
The menu might include anything from beer and cheese fries to cocktails and salmon. But instead of the host slaving away for hours in a hot kitchen, it’s more likely to be a party-style potluck.

From the Vine: Wine, food and fellowship
Doug Seed was posed with a challenge, one that he gladly accepted.
The chef and owner of Morada Eats catering and A Moveable Feast food truck was asked to create small bites of Thanksgiving fare and pair them with LangeTwins estate wines for the winery’s first Friendsgiving party last Thanksgiving eve.
The guests enjoyed the food and wine so much, LangeTwins owners Randy and Charlene Lange asked Seed to cater the second Friendsgiving celebration, which will take place on Nov. 23 at the winery’s Press Room in Acampo.
