Unless there's alot of sharing involved I'll probably have to pass on most of the non regional stuff since I can't eat as much as some of you.


Already starting with the excuses...let me get my violin out...

or perhaps the string bass

    Stephen and I can be counted in for  Loveless but will not be attending the buffet brunch the next morning.  I do not care for buffets.

      Greymo:  I am not exactly a fan of buffet's but Ellendale's brunch sure does sound good.  Perhaps you might try this one??
       
      This is a buffet for Buffet Buster.  They gotta have pie

        Kay,
        As Paul mentioned, Ellendale's is not a "Gold Corral" sort of place. It is divided into several smaller dining rooms and the food service areas are attended by multiple service people assisting the diners. We have found it to be a "class act" and a nice finale for the group's weekend.
           I hope you will join us.

          Greymo, look at the website before you make your decision. Buffets don't normally have their own herb gardens.  The last time the Glee Club went there, I heard not a single uncomplimentary comment.

              OK, 
              For those of you who asked about the timing of the Sunday Brunch. We have reservations for the first seating when  Ellendale's opens  Sunday Morning at  10:00 AM. That's as early as they serve, so we hope you'll join us for a fine farewell meal.

                The schedule calls for our first stop to be at
                SILKE'S BAKERY AND GERMAN CAFE in Clarksville, Tennessee. We'll gather at 8:00 AM (cst) and enjoy whatever you choose from the breakfasts or bakery goods to start the day.  Here is the Website with directions, and the house menu for your 'pre-visit' research.
                http://www.silkesoldworldbreads.com/
                 
                After breakfast we will take the short ride ( 20-30 minutes) to the Knock'em Hill BBQ, just across the state line in Hearndon, KY. We recommend sharing and sampling here. Those you have been here before can describe your experiences to guide the new-visitors. KNOCK'EM HILL BBQ opens at 9:30 AM and the owner recommends that we get there early, as the Saturday crowd builds thru-out the morning.  Our plan seems to be falling into place !!
                   From Knockem Hill BBQ we will return to Nashville between noon and 1:00 PM. For the afternoon there are several options that we can do individually or as small groups, depending on what your particular likes or dislikes may be.... Hot Fish and/or Chicken may be on some folks list, or a PIE Search for others. Historic sites and the Grand Old Oprey are possible stops also.
                So keep your options open for the afternoon !!
                  The evening at The Loveless is set to begin at 6:30 PM and will last at least a couple of hours...I would estimate that we'll close up the place at 9PM, so any late evening plans for "after-Dinner" can start about then.
                   We hope that the combination of group activity and some free time for individual preferences will make for an enjoyable weekend for all.
                We will have paper-maps for Knock'em Hill, The Loveless, and Ellendales available at SILKE'S Saturday morning , if anyone needs them.

                  The schedule is looking good so far-- I checked out their website and they have Orgasmic Organic - Dark blend from Bongo Java so that's good news- I may get my Pimento Cheese Sandwich at Puckett's Merridee's  the day before en route from Little Rock  so it doesn't interfere with the schedule

                    The bakery and BBQ sounds really good but since I am leaving Knoxville at 6:00AM Saturday, I do not believe I can make that part of the trip.  I am in for Loveless and Ellendales.  If any are interested, I would like to do a chicken and fish place plus I want to stop at Trader Joe's for a case of the Charles Swan (Two Buck Chuck) wine.

                        WJ:  Hopefully we will have PP to show us the way.  There was a place right down the street from our hotel that sold hot fish and hot chicken but it was not one that PP wanted us to try.

                          I'd be intertested in that hot fish. And I guess I'll try the hot chicken.

                            PP  previously mentioned 400 degrees for hot chicken and Eastside Fish for Hot Fish as options
                             
                             PP and I went to Boltons for hot chicken 3 years ago and it was very good- in fact it was better than Prince's which I visited back in 2008.
                             
                            PP also took me to King Fish- I didn't particulary care for their hot fish- way to overdone- I thought the hot fish I had at Joe's BBQ and Fish was better- but they are drive through only.

                              I was afraid of this.  Trader Joe's does not sell wine in the state of Tennessee.  I wanted to get a case or two of Charles Shaw (Two Buck Chuck).  I am sure that the law will change soon but as of now, they can't sell wine or liquor.

                                  With the Sunday brunch beginning at 10am, are there plans for a few stops before hand?  We could probably work 3-4 in before the rendezvous.

                                    Since I may not be able to make it to the brunch- that might not be a bad idea!

                                        We can go high or low class early a.m..  I offer either Pancake Pantry, or plain old biscuits and gravy at the Hermitage Cafe. Everyone knows the Pantry. The Hermitage Cafe is a desparate, lonely place you may have seen paintings of during the fifties.  I like both.

                                                          We can go high or low class early a.m..  I offer either Pancake Pantry, or plain old biscuits and gravy at the Hermitage Cafe. Everyone knows the Pantry. The Hermitage Cafe is a desparate, lonely place you may have seen paintings of during the fifties.  I like both.

                                                          Plus the Hermitage Cafe is open all night, so you could hit it a couple of hours before the Pancake Pantry opens (6AM), if you were so inclined...  Agree with PP: both have much to recommend them!  I'd like to do this too, as I'll have to pass on Ellendale's.  Nothing against the food (we went just before Christmas) but the time doesn't work very well for me...

                                                            I ran thru the posts up to now and can account for 20 confirmed and 2 or 3 maybe's.  Those of you who indicated a "Party of One" in your reservation are welcome to bring a significant other or friend, but please advise us if you will do that, so our 'tally' will be accurate.  If anyone is lurking in the shadows and wants to join the fun, please post or let us know soon. We must give the Loveless an exact count a week before we show up.
                                                             
                                                            The travel following the Saturday morning stops will provide a nice break in the noon-hours to allow us to be ready for an afternoon of hot-spicy stuff as you choose. Just remember the dinner menu at Loveless Cafe centers on Fried Chicken and Country Ham and Fried Catfish.
