retail news in context, analysis with attitude

This is Thanksgiving weekend here in the US, which I always think is the best holiday of the year - just food and football and family. (And almost certainly a movie or two at some point…) There's also a lot to be thankful for this year, which will give the holiday even more resonance than usual.

And, also as usual, at the Coupe household we'll be enjoying filet mignon, baked potatoes and fresh asparagus ... not exactly traditional fare, but it's what the kids like to eat on Thanksgiving, so we've developed our own tradition. The wines will be from Oregon, probably a pinot from Willamette Valley Vineyards and definitely the Road's End from Carlton Cellars. Like I said. Tradition.

In keeping with tradition, MNB will be on hiatus for the four-day weekend.

Have a great holiday ... a great weekend ... and I'll see you Monday, November 30.
