Making Thanksgiving Easy In The Melrose Arts District: Where To Get Food, Drinks, Host Gifts, And More For The Holiday

You might be making your plans for Thanksgiving, which is just a couple of weeks away. Are you having people over for dinner? Or maybe you’re a guest elsewhere? Or is it a pizza and Netflix night? All good. The Melrose Arts District has everything you need to make the entire day simpler, convenient, and tasty no matter what you’re doing.

BLU JAM CAFÉ

They say breakfast is the most important meal of the day. At Blu Jam, it’s also the most delicious. If you need the energy for the full day of cooking ahead or want to prime your tummy for even more food, get your first meal on Melrose.

DOMAINE LA

Orange wines are a fresh trend (they’re basically whites made the same way as reds). At Domaine LA, pick up the 2018 Jolie Laide Pinot Gris. It’s an organic California orange wine that will go perfectly with the flavors of Thanksgiving (or that pizza).

SPITFIRE GIRL

Here’s a sweet little gift for your dinner host. This soy-blend candle from Spitfire Girl smells like bitter orange, bergamot, orange blossom, petitgrain, and violet leaves. As it burns down, it becomes a lantern illuminating the cherry wood artwork. What a bounty!
