The Clubhouse Thanksgiving Buffet in Oak Brook, Illinois
I woke up at 11am after only 10 hours of sleep (8 in my bed, 2 during a movie at JoeJoe’s last night). I woke up about 5 minutes after my sister Nat got here, and she was convinced that we wouldn’t then be able to leave for the movie (and subsequent Clubhouse Thanksgiving Buffet) in Oak Brook at 11:45 as planned.
I showered, did my hair, got dressed, ate breakfast, did my makeup, checked my email, checked LiveJournal, checked my web stats, and was ready to go by 11:35. 🙂
So we went to go see For Your Consideration. It was a good movie and funny, but no where near as good as “Waiting for Guffman” or “Best in Show” or some of the other movies by the same writers. There were definitely some funny quotes and such, a lot of funniness over people not knowing anything about the “internet.” “That’s the thing with email right?” Anyways, it was enjoyable.
So, that is one Bromann Family holiday tradition: my sisters, mom, and I always go to a movie. Well, this year my sister Jen went to her boyfriend’s house for Thanksgiving. So she didn’t go to the movie with us today. She also insisted that we don’t have Thanksgiving dinner without her.
Did I ever mention that my sister is a VEGETARIAN? And that she doesn’t even eat turkey??? But, whatever.
So, since we weren’t allowed to have regular Thanksgiving dinner tonight, we instead went to The Clubhouse restaurant in Oak Brook that was having a really nice Thanksgiving buffet.
A really nice buffet.
The number one reason we went was because on the Clubhouse Thanksgiving menu was Turducken!! TURDUCKEN!!!!!!!! If you don’t know, Turducken is a duck cooked inside of a chicken cooked inside of a turkey. How American is that?
So, ladies and gentlemen here is a wonderful pictorial of everything I ate I at the Clubhouse Thanksgiving Buffet (yes, I ate ALL of this).
