Trying to find a good and comprehensive list of restaurants that offer a good Thanksgiving feast in Costa Rica is difficult. Several sites and user groups offer a few, but nothing really complete. Saying that, I am starting this list. It contains almost nothing, but I am asking that my readers:
1. Add in the comments any restaurants that you know offer a Thanksgiving dinner in CR. Include location and cost and opinion if possible. I will add it here on this blog page.
2. Spread the word by sending this direct link to anyone who you think might add to this list… i.e. eaters 🙂
The List – Please be proactive and add your favs in the comments! I know this is lame… so help me!!
As of Turkey Day at 7:30 AM, this experiment was not working well… only a handful of recommendations. Oh well…. Happy Thanksgiving to all my readers! Now, go pig out. As on your birthday, calories do not count today.

This year’s Chili Cook Off will be on February 10, 2013 and seems to have become an annual event. I seldom promote this kind of stuff, but in this case, the organizers are honest and the money goes to the Hogar de Vida, a home for abused, abandoned and orphaned kids that houses up to 35 children ages birth to 10 years old. Good cause.
I could not go last year… some conflict as I recall, but it is on my calendar for this year.
Give it a shot! I am sure that Diet Chili is available for those of us calorically challenged.
Or… maybe not.Filed under Chili, Costa Rica, Costa Rica Cooking, Costa Rica Tourism, Things to Do, Tourism, Travel | Comment (1)

Hi again to my faithful readers. Here is yet another addition of “My Readers Write”
In this post you will find both emails and comments asking me questions are generally not covered in The REAL Costa Ricaor this Blog…. or maybe they are answered, but there is some other twist that I think might be of interest.
As some of these were sent more than 5 weeks ago, I do appreciate your patience. I am just bombarded with email.
I do correct grammar where practical and some spelling of the various emails/comments, but I do not change the content other than maybe a swear word.
