Thanks, eh!

If you celebrate Canadian Thanksgiving here in the US you might be the envy of American friends and family who think Canadians get the better timing. We are already full of gratitude for a fall season abundant with feasts and treats. And, we are also grateful for:


  1. The end of all Covid-19 restrictions traveling to Canada starting on October 1st!
  2. The strong US dollar so we can fill a suitcase (15 dozen apparently) with our favourite Montreal-style bagels on our latest trip north.
  3. Remembering Queen Elizabeth II: her life of service, her love of animals, and how cool she looks on a moose, thanks to Canadian artist Charlie Pachter back in ’72.
  4. NASA’s Double Asteroid Redirection Test knocking Dimorphis off it’s path. If you love all things space, check out this Canadian VR company experience, The Infinite, coming to the East Bay in October.
  5. Turkey dinner. Some of us just can’t get enough even if we are going to the DML Thanksgiving dinner, so get 20% off a turkey and free shipping from Cream Co. Meats with code BUTTERTART at checkout. More details below.
  6. Wine discounts from Kascadia Wine Merchants. Use code DMLWINEFAN to get 20% off all products (minimum order $18.00). Until October 31st.

À votre santé, tout le monde!
