As promised, here are some photos from the Glee Club Event.
As I noted previously, this isn't a trip report- just some photos with Commentary. Although if there are two
prevailed this weekend ( besides folks getting ill and having travel issues ) it's gotta be this (I'll let Buffetbuster
(I'll let Chi Town Diner Explain)
Friday February 17 The Beacon Light Tea Room Bon Aqua TN
A good 40 minutes outside Nashville, this was our first stop Friday Evening. It was the five of us- Buffetbuster
, Cousin Johnny
, Chi Town Diner
, Travelin Man
and yours truly
Not really a tea room- actually this restaurant was started by the same person who founded The Loveless Cafe
Like the Loveless
, biscuits come to the table with preserves
Here's a shocker! Chi Town Diner
ordering a salad!
I skipped the salad
I'm solidly in country ham country territory now. It came with red eye gravy and I ordered hash brown casserole and fried apples as my two sides. The country ham lacked the punch that country ham usually delivers. The sides were rather pedestrian.
The best part of the meal was
The Ice Box Pecan Coconut Pie that Cousin Johnny
and I shared.
Our last stop for the evening was Eastside Fish
I'm still trying to figure out what the crunkest fish in town is?
My memory is failing but I believe we ordered several items
However the one thing I was waiting for was this
The O G King Fish
This is over a pound and a half of whiting.
We all shared. There were complaints that there were bones in the fish, but somehow I was grabbing hunks of whiting and lucked out because I didn't encounter any bones- I wasn't very hungry but I enjoyed what I had.
As we were half way through, Cajun King
arrived and ordered the same thing-
Everyone konked out that point (with the exception of Chi Town Diner
of course) we all wanted to get some sleep- I believe he referred to us as amateurs.
I'll post the next day's photos sometime this week.
