Thanksgiving dinner

If you happen to be in Costa Rica looking for a restaurant cooking up Thanksgiving dinner, your first stop should probably be this week's Tico Times. Most of the restaurants that are doing Thanksgiving are doing it very traditionally, so if you're sort of sick of that shtick, or if you're a vegetarian, esposo is cooking Thanksgiving dinner with his friends at their new cafe in Escazu, Oasis.
