One of the few things I constantly want to change about our SF flat is the lack of a dining room, or space to put a traditional table. We're lucky enough to have a great outdoor patio space, large kitchen with island, in-unit laundry and a great living room--but no table. No place to sit in a regular chair and host a dinner party. Or wine party. Or whatever. This year, I wanted to embrace our lack of a table and host a friendsgiving without one.
