3 Things You Don’t Need To Worry About This Thanksgiving


Arrive Grateful

We’ve survived the thick heat of summer just in time to watch the trees start to shed. It’s now that we find ourselves on the cusp of Thanksgiving – a time most of us will gather, eat and hopefully rest. The holidays can be exciting and challenging in many ways. Traveling, hosting and navigating intimate social settings just to name a few. Whether you’re hosting or preparing to be a guest this Thanksgiving, we’ve made a short list of eats that will help take some stress away from your preparations.


Local’s Guide to Thanksgiving

Rebel Cheese is a locally owned deli that has been thriving in the Mueller area since 2019. Not only did it survive the pandemic in it’s first year but it was also voted Best New Restaurant. Rebel Cheese makes stunning ready-to-go and custom charcuterie boards. These bites give guests something to nibble on so the host focus on dinner.

12.8% alcohol – Had to lead with that. The Austin Winery’s Grenache pairs grapes from the Texas Hill Country and the Texas Plains. This wine balances aromas of brown sugar and warm raspberries with notes of dried strawberries – you can steal that from us. You can order online or visit them on St. Elmo Rd.

Sugar Mama’s Bakery has your back with pre-orders for your Thanksgiving favorites – and not just the sweet ones. Pumpkin Pie, Jalapeño cornbread, mac and cheese, and even gluten-free and vegan options. Sugar Mama’s, our locally-owned neighbor, won Best of Austin this year. You can trust them to handle the baking – Who knows? Maybe you’ll actually have time to enjoy the holiday.

Navigating the Holidays with Compassion

While the holiday season is often painted as an assured celebration, it’s essential to recognize that for some, this time of the year can cast a shadow of challenges and emotional turbulence. It’s common for many individuals to grapple with feelings of loneliness, loss, or the weight of unmet expectations. Especially in the diverse and itinerant communities of Austin. The holidays are an inescapable reminder of life’s complexities – joy, grief and their co-existence. It can be hard to acknowledge the struggles of others and extend our compassion when we are overwhelmed ourselves. This holiday, we will continue to share resources that allow you to shed some stress of the season and maybe support a few small businesses.
