Happy Thanksgiving from Dog Days!

Thanksgiving is finally here! This is such a great holiday weekend at the Lake of the Ozarks. Families are reunited, football games are streamed from every television, and tables are buried underneath more food than anyone can possibly eat. Even though we're currently closed for the season, the team at Dog Days Bar & Grill is super excited to celebrate this wonderful holiday weekend with our friends and families.

Origin of Thanksgiving

The very first Thanksgiving feast was held in 1621. The Pilgrims had landed at Plymouth Rock and settled in the New World the year before. Unfortunately, that first winter proved extremely harsh and over half of the settlers did not survive. The next year, however, they reaped a bountiful harvest. The surviving Pilgrims held a great feast to celebrate their good fortune - and thus, Thanksgiving was born!

Thanksgiving was celebrated annually for many years before it became a federally recognized national holiday. President Abraham Lincoln finally declared Thanksgiving a federal holiday in 1863. After that, the actual day people celebrated Thanksgiving continued to fluctuate until Congress passed a resolution declaring Thursday would be celebrated on the fourth Thursday in November. 

What Are You Thankful For?

This is a holiday designed to give us time to recognize, celebrate, and give thanks for the wonderful blessings in our lives. It is a time to relax, to feast, and to tell those around us how we grateful we are for their presence in our lives. We thought it would be appropriate to take some time to personally thank all of our loyal customers for making Dog Days one of the best waterfront restaurants on the Lake. We wouldn't be what we are today without you all!
