Thanksgiving In Brooklyn – In A Brooklyn Minute (Week 31)

For the second year in a row we had the most amazing Thanksgiving at Alex’ and David’s apartment in Crown Heights, Brooklyn.

Thanksgiving was never all that special to me because I didn’t grow up with it and therefore didn’t have any personal attachment or nostalgic feelings about it. Being a vegetarian might also have had a little to do with a lack of excitement. But I’ve always enjoyed spending time with Scott’s family in Florida and, over the last few years more and more, with friends in Brooklyn, like the vegetarian Thanksgiving at Bo and Amanda’s, a few we’ve hosted ourselves and the recent ones at the house of Alex (wine expert, DJ) and David (chef, DJ).

So this year, for the first time, I really longed to be celebrating Thanksgiving and was able to arrange my trip back to Brooklyn around this holiday.  

Again everyone outdid themselves with delicious food: everyone brought something but David created the majority and Katie provided the turkey (which Alex cut masterly) and Andrea made the most delicious Earl Grey ice cream! My personal favorite, of course, was Scott’s green bean casserole. And as is becoming tradition, we made crack nuts, too. Yum.

The real highlight of course, was the company of old and new friends and the dancing wasn’t just a blast, it also helped work off some of the food and drink.

P.S.: For everyone who attended, I’ll be privately uploading a version with all of the additional footage which didn’t fit into the one minute – some of which was actually maybe more fun, but then maybe also not necessary to share publicly…

  1. Well, this made me insanely jealous of your Thanksgiving. The food! The friends! The dancing! But I guess we all have things to be thankful for.

    Happy Thanksgiving Luci!

    • Hey Ebe,
      Since you’ve left this comment, we’ve had Thanksgiving again, Christmas and New Year’s Eve and your trip to the Naturkundemuseum – all events which surely were amazing in Berlin. If anyone is jealous these days, it’s me. I miss Berlin and y’all so much! But I get to go to Brooklyn this weekend and see some of the friends from this video. And I do have a beautiful home, husband, dog and nature all around me in Colorado. So yes, we all have things to be thankful for!
      Hab ein schoenes Wochenende!
      xx Luci
