Northwest Portland Hostel

Centrally Located – in the Heart of Portland

Turkey Day Remembered

Sunday, December 1, 2013

There was plenty to be thankful for on Thanksgiving this year!  As always, HI Northwest Portland Hostel hosted a Thanksgiving feast for hostelers, staff, and locals.  This year we had all the essentials – turkey, cranberry sauce, mashed potatoes, and everyone’s favorite, stuffing! Plus, there were many other special treats provided by our wonderful community of guests.

One of our favorite moments from this year’s meal is the story of Joe, Yuki, and a tofurky.  The story goes…

DSCN0572Joe and Yuki participated in the Tofurky Trot, a 5k run in Portland on Thanksgiving morning.  The run is a spin-off of the Turkey Trot that takes place in other areas of the U.S., but of course, here in Portland we do it vegetarian style.  Well, Yuki won second place in the race (way to go!) and as a prize received a delicious tofurky which he shared with our hostel Thanksgiving!  While Joe, met a celebrity! The founder of tofurky himself, Mr. Seth Tibbott.

Portland. Just keeping it weird.
