Burlington is just a couple of towns over.
there are some good Asian places, a couple decent Mexican places, and a Brazilian place. Those are the casual ones.
I am skipping the holidays because those are "holidays" as in, I'm taking a vacation from them this year. If I feel too much pressure to "be festive" I need to take a break. I'd planned to take a break last year but I ended up going somewhere after all.
I reserve the right to change my mind, but please don't think I'm cheating myself. I have done this before and it is very ok.
So this means I have a "date" with you for Thanksgiving and one with Ceoli around Christmas / New Year's. I would have to say that so far I'm not doing too badly
