Here at the Hood River Hotel, we realize you have a boatload of places you could spend the holidays. And because of that, you may prefer other options. Such as? Well, such as not going to those other places, and instead quietly spending your holiday with sweet, nice, courteous people … just like the family you barely missed having. Herewith, then, some reasons to think about staying with us.
- You wake up when you want to, not because your mother is shaking you by the foot.
- Your hair does not contain turkey gravy.
- No one is beating you over the head for possession of the pants you already own and are wearing, thank you very much, in the comfort of your own, private room.
- You are not looking at massive carcass dripping with potential finger snacks, and fighting the temptation to actually have one.
- You do not find yourself tiptoeing toward the car parked in the driveway to make your escape before anyone can implore you to “stay, stay, just one more day.”
Maybe you’re going to be alone. Maybe you’re not going anywhere, but you don’t want to cook. Maybe you’re coming to Hood River, and you still don’t want to cook. Or maybe you’re going to be with family, and you just need a place to escape from them so you can actually enjoy stuffing your face without the usual indigestion.
Whatever your reasons, we at the Hood River Hotel and Cornerstone Cuisine are here for you on Thanksgiving. In addition to our regular menu, we’ll be adding the full enchilada turkey day menu (how’s that for a multi-cultural mixed holiday feast metaphor?).
From noon to 3:30′ish, we’ll dish up roast turkey, sage sausage stuffing, cranberry relish, garlic mashed potatoes, roasted root vegetables and rosemary gravy. All that, for a paltry $19 per person. Add pumpkin pie for $6 more.
The total budget bite? $25 — well worth considering in lieu of all the time and mess and conflicted agendas and weapons and intra-family carnage that could ensue if you decide to cook for yourself.
We’re at 102 Oak Ave. in downtown Hood River. See you Thursday.
