As we set aside all coverage but breaking news to celebrate with our loved ones, here's a look back at some of those restaurants and retailers the Thread has profiled or announced this year.

Whether it's the legendary Jack Brown's Beer & Burger Joint, the one-of-a-kind Moonshot Creamery or Buff City Soap, the newest addition to Midtown Village which will open for Black Friday tomorrow, we are grateful for these news businesses to explore all over town.

At the Thread, we're also grateful for every one of our readers and the three years we've spent covering West Alabama for you - we appreciate the privilege, happy Thanksgiving!
