Five Things I’m Thankful for at Elkridge Patch

Share what you’re grateful for in Elkridge in our comments section.

Each year, Patch editors on Thanksgiving share their favorite things about the community they cover. This year, I have the following list of my favorite things about Elkridge and Elkridge Patch. Want to share your favorite things about Elkridge? Tell us in comments!

1)   I’m grateful for the community of users on Elkridge Patch—and I’m especially thankful for the site’s bloggers. For a flavor of the type of posts our users contribute, check out the Elkridgean Cyclist, who recently posted thoughts on suburbia, cycling and the environment.

2)   Any Patch editor will tell you: They love a place with coffee, breakfast food and free WiFi. On occasion, you can find me at Mimi’s Café in Elkridge, enjoying all the above and the variety of muffin options they offer.

3)   On the subject of food, I’m very grateful for the R & R Taqueria in Jessup. What it lacks in ambience, it makes up for with real authentic, flavorful and CRISPY Mexican food. R & R Taqueria (7894 Washington Blvd.) was recently one of five places in the nation featured in the Wall Street Journal article "Gas Station Taquerias, a New Food Trend."

4)   I’m thankful there is a gingerbread decorating contest in Elkridge! This year, it will be Dec. 15 from 10 a.m. to noon at the Elkridge Fire Hall, 6275, Old Washington Road in Elkridge.

5)   Finally, I’m thankful for the Elkridge community at large. I love how Elkridge readers care passionately about community issues and are willing to weigh in – whether it be about school redistricting, community development issues or Halloween.

I am thankful that Our Beloved Leader Chairman Obama has my best interests at heart. Yesterday I received my 2013 Social Security Stimulus Package. It contained two tomato seeds, cornbread mix, two discount coupons to KFC, an 'Obama Hope & Change' bumper sticker, a prayer rug, a machine to blow smoke up my ass and a 'Blame it on Bush' poster for the front yard. The directions were in Spanish. Yours should arrive soon.

We are thankful for the Patch. It has given our little corner called Elkridge a presence in the community. We have made many new friends since we discovered the Patch and have been able to take advantage of the advertising opportunities available here. We have found many new places to eat and shop. Learned a lot about the history of the area and keep abreast of the news and gossip here on the patch. Even randomly read the comments once in while for a good laugh.
