All of us at Greater Greater Washington wish you, your family, and your friends the happiest of Thanksgivings this week (and safe travels). For our part, we are extraordinarily grateful for the richness of community whether you connect with us through this site, write articles for us, comment on posts, or attend our events. Thank you for helping us make greater Washington even greater!
The calendar may be light this week but many of us will, er, be lighter in spirit, at least? Oh who am I kidding—I can't resist stuffing myself with stuffing and the rest of the Thanksgiving table. Bon appétit, and we'll always have active transportation to compensate, right?
