    Buzz Mill: Thanksgiving Orphan Dinner

    Listen, this is real and true and good: "Sometimes it works out that you don't have somewhere to go for Thanksgiving. Or you have somewhere to go, but for some reason or another you just can't make it. We stay open 24/7 for the same reason we have an Orphan Dinner each year: We want to provide a gathering place so that more people can connect with their community. That also includes dinner – because food is even tastier when shared with friends, new and old alike." Ah, Buzz Mill, we love you. Fellow orphans, show up 'round noon and bring any side entree that you'd like to share. There'll be several turkeys ready for us all, and some vegan options too. Note: all the food trucks will be closed, but each will be donating a plate or two to this dinner.
