I know Jan and I (and Puppy McDuff) did one in Feb 2004, just two weeks before the First Glee Club Meeting.  I don't know if that was the first one on the Website ??
 
Ralph & Lori,
   I am so glad you weathered the negative elements of your trip, to participate with the Glee Club this year. I agree with the thought that you missed the 'most genteel' location" on the tour...Silke's Bakery and German Cafe in Clarksville, TN.  No big "ambience or pretenses", just a nice comfortable place to enjoy some unique (for a TN Military Town) light and delicious foods. You would have loved this place !

I do regret missing Silke's; multiple people have said that it was a great stop. But I think that I made the right choice, even though it was a bitter one.
 
ScreamingChicken, I've had Roadfood trips without travel incidents: since the beginning of 2009, the trips to Raleigh-Durham, New Mexico, and Chicago have been incident-free, and I count three road trips without any problems. But we've had flight problems to Alaska, New Orleans (twice), and Nashville, and hotel problems with our West Coast trip. So I'd say that six out of eleven trips have been trouble-free, which is not a splendid record. 
 
I blame the airlines mostly; we've had flight problems on 50% of our trips of the last three years.

Ralph, if this record keeps up, Melton will become a verb, just like Travelin Man did!

Fantastic reports and photos!!!  Y'all are true legends! 
 
I'm sitting here at 6:30 in the morning before going to work, and suddenly I have a strong craving for BBQ'd spaghetti.

Bushie,
  At 6:30 AM  Put a can of Spagetti-O's in a bowl, dump some Kraft 69 cent BBQ sauce on it and some bacon bits...heat in the Microwave and close your eyes when you eat them....  hehehe
 
OK  From now on when a travel connection is messed up (or missed) It will be "Meltoned" !!

And when someone does something nice, such as going to pick up a stranded diner in the middle of a snow shower that will be Meltoned, too.

I don't know if I want to be responsible for the travel woes of all Roadfooders...I can see the voodoo dolls now  (Clearly I"m getting in New Orleans mode already!)
 
I'm glad the travel worked out and we were able to come, though I am sorry to have missed the bakery. We'll hit it next time we're in Nashville...and I've told Ralph I want a trip to the Grand Ole Opry too. :-)  But missing a restaurant is no big deal -- I'm just glad we didn't miss visiting with y'all.

It took me a day to figure out how to respond to this proposal.
 
I really am flattered. And I like the idea of contributing to the language of this community.
 
But I don't feel like my travel woes are that special. (I'd be very curious to know how often buffetbuster has airline troubles, since he flies out of the same airport.) I think our troubles are a combination of two factors:
- we tend to fly in the evenings, which means that planes are full, minor problems throughout the day have had their best chance to snowball into major problems, and problems are hardest to fix without major delays; and
- a very tight economy for airplane travel (caused by rising fuel prices and easy price comparison) has turned the major airlines into penurious weasels who would make you get out halfway and push if it would save them five bucks. 
 
But here's the clincher for me that makes me want to decline this honor:
I already have one name that has unpleasant associations when used as a verb in a food context. I would rather not have that be true of both my names.

Michael, that's very kind of you to say, and I appreciate it very much. Thank you.
 
My volunteering to go pick up Bushie was an easy choice, because I saw that it would be good for me as well as for him. I hadn't had a chance to talk with Bushie at all at the Loveless Cafe, and picking him up would give us a chance to talk and deepen our acquaintance. I enjoyed our chat together, and I'm glad that we had that chance.

Tips to avoid being "Meltoned"
1. Fly early in the day, first flights preferably.
2. Take direct flights whenever possible.
3. Carry-on your luggage.
4. Move to a warm climate to avoid Pittsburgh weather!!!

 OK Friends, It is time to "UNSTICKY" this chapter in the GLEE CLUB HISTORY and let it sink into the morass of the other group digests.  Watch for it to reappear as we approach the Winter Solstice. That's when we begin the preparations for MOBILE - 2013.   It looks like we will be meeting the weekend AFTER Mardi-Gras, but the dates and specific locations on the list have NOT been selected yet.

But before it goes I just want to say that Tennessee DOES HAVE actual bourbon, and not just Tennessee whiskey. I know that because of the generosity of Pogophiles who provided me with a bottle of Prichard's. It is mighty fine bourbon.
 
And then there was that jar of shine from out of his car trunk. Smooooooth!
 
Glee Club meetings are fun, and the people are terrific. lleechef and I can't wait till Mobile.

Michael,
   Janet and I are thinking of doing an Alabama or Mississippi or Southern Georgia Hog Hunt for a couple of days after the Mobile session. Interested in joining in ?

Al,
 
I've been silent  for the most part and the reason why is I'm going to add my two cents when I complete my other trip report which eventually ended up here in Nashville. At the slow rate I'm going on completing my other report, I probably won't get to this one until the winter solstice. Well....... probably more like the spring equinox.

I was not aware of Mobile but it works for me.  I certainly enjoyed it the last time at Winzell's and the BBQ place.  We will be there.

Mr. Mayor, I would be interested. I'd love to give lleechef the opportunity to take a hog. On the other hand, we had been talking about Acme in New Orleans after Mobile.

Just an update on the follow-up Hunt info. Lleechef and MH will join the Mayor and Mrs for a Hog Hunt in Southern Missouri next September. Be prepared for a 'primitive life-style' trip report for the foursome as they do their famous Lewis & Clark re-enactment !

Michael,
  Sacajawea had a baby during that expedition, are you trying to tell us something???
  I do have a rabbitfur cap (with hunter orange trim)...but in September it may be a bit warm for that !
   I think the foodstops in the Rolla area will get some attention before and after this hunting week.  Both M H and I have visited the area several times in the past years.

Are you trying to get me killed?

Mentioning Mobile and Mardi Gras  --  Most people are not aware that Mardi Gas actually started in Mobile way before it became popular in New Orleans and Mobile Celebrates it in a big way. Something to take into account in your early planning stages regarding rooms and availability of restaurants. Suggest taking a look at places in Fairhope, Gulf Shores for side trip excursions. Also, there's a Lambert's Cafe, Home of the "Throwed Rolls" in Foley AL for side trips!
Don't forget the Flora-Bama Lounge, in Perdido Key, Home of the World Famous Interstate Mullet Toss, It's not too far from Mobile.

There is talk of a moving meeting next winter to include the Gulf-Shore from Pensacola/Desitin to Mobile and maybe even Biloxi, MS.  No final itinerary is locked in at this point.   Build your dream lists and we will piece together a plan in the Fall.  Our focus is on Marksmanship training for the Great Missouri Hunt for the summer.

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 themes that
prevailed this weekend ( besides folks getting ill and having travel issues ) it's gotta be this (I'll let Buffetbuster  explain)
 
 

 
 
and this
 

 
(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.

Man, I didn't like any of the food from Beacon Light Tea Room.  That was the big disappointment of the weekend. 
 
Oh, and I'm Batman!

"The crunkest fish in town."   Maybe it's best we don't know what this means.

Crunkest? Here y'all go: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Crunk

"the term crunk can be traced back to 1972 in the Dr. Seuss book Marvin K. Mooney Will You Please Go Now!."
 
 
 So it all has to do with Dr Seuss?

Saturday February 18
 
Our first stop in the morning was Silke's Old World Breads about an hour or so from Nashville. Most of the rest of the crew joined us including Bushie, Mayor Al and his lovely bride Janet, Will Work 4 Q and Louis.
 

 
This was certainly the highlight of the weekend in Nashville. An old school German Bakery with not only a variety of Pastries and Breads but also German Style breakfast meats and wursts.
 
I actually got something healthy for everyone to share
 

 
The apple oat square. Since we were all sharing I got something else after we all sat down (I don't remember what) to ensure that there was no duplication 
Not only that but the coffee at the bakery was from Nashville's own Bongo Java Roasting company- truly an added bonus
 
Next we wen to Knockum Hill BBQ in Herndon KY about a half hour's drive.
 

 
A couple of pigs welcomed us at the entrance and Travelin Man decided to warm up to them.
 

 
Well, he really warmed up to Mr. Piggy! 
 

 
our pre-ordered pork chops were ready to go
 

 
here's one of them
 
 

 
Chi Town Diner ordered four for himself!
 
The chops were as tender as pot roast - well, it actually tasted like pot roast, it really didn't have much smoke flavor
 

 
I don't remember much about the ribs so I guess they weren't that memorable- I don't remember them being bad, just nothing special
 

 
Same with the burgoo-
 
 

Your choice of sauce 
 
 

 
Sad to say, I don't remember anything about this pie- It could be butterscotch or buttermilk but I honestly don't remember
 

 
The owner was straight out of "central casting" he had that classic "mile a minute" Kentucky twang. TTM appropriately compared him to a carnival barker.
 
We returned to Nashville to pick up Buffetbuster who decided to get some extra sleep. 
 
 

 
Bolton's was our first intended stop for some hot chicken, unfortunately we never got to eat here, I'm not going to go into specifics but if anyone else wants to explain, please feel free to do so.
 
 

 

Our next stop was Sylvan Park 
one of the premier meat n three's in Nashville.
 

 
Even TTM gets a break every once in a while.
 

 
Someone started their meal with Chocolate Pie
 

 
I began my meal with some nice fresh corn bread
 

 
I thoroughly enjoyed my meal of country fried steak. The sides were particularly good. Clockwise the sides are squash casserole, corn pudding and green beans.
 

 
 
I had a bite of this chess pie, my only regret is that I didn't get a slice of my own. I've never been a big fan of chess pie, in fact I've all but given up on it- this is truly the best Chess Pie I've ever had.
 

 
And here is one of Sylvan Park's cheery and sunny employees. 
 
I would say that other than Silke's, Sylvan Park was the other highlight in Nashville.
 

 
Our last stop of the afternoon was Ellston Place Soda Shop
 
 

 
Looking down as you enter the restaurant.
 

 
The interior just has that old fashioned classic soda fountain atmosphere.
 
When I last visited 7 years ago, I didn't care much for the food at all, with the exception of one thing- dessert.
It stuck in my memory all of these years and it was available today
 

 
It may not look like much but this is EVERYTHING that lemon ice box pie should be. It was just as good as I remembered. 
 
For the highlight evening event, I carpooled with Paul and Iwannago
 


 
To the famous Loveless Cafe
 
As we entered, the place was packed. Poverty Pete did the right thing by making reservations well in advance.
 
The rest of the crew including Ralph Melton and his lovely bride, Icecreamchick as well as Michael Hoffman and Lleechef were all there.
 
Dinner was served family style and included  biscuits with their famous preserves, Catfish, Fried Chicken and Country ham as well as Greens,  Hash Brown Casserole and Mac n Cheese
 

 
 

 
Here is my plate of Fried Chicken, Greens and Mac N Cheese- again. everything was ok but there was nothing mind blowing about the meal. I did enjoy the country ham, unfortunately I didn't get any photos. I didn't have any catfish.
 
 
As I walked around the restaurant I observed the viewing area where you can observe the biscuits being made
 

 

 
Just as we were leaving, plates of desserts landed right in front of Cajun King. 
 

Unfortunately I didn't get to try any.
 
I'll conclude tomorrow with Sunday's brunch as well as the final excerpt of my trip report.

I was not feeling very well that day I joined you at Knockum Hill, but even I didn't think the meat tasted as good as I'd had in the past.  The ribs tasted exactly like the pork chop, which ought to tell you something; I also thought they were a bit too dry.
 
As for their sides, I could have told you to stay away.  The sides are not their strength at all; there is absolutely nothing to recommend on that front.
 
I've had a decent barbecue sandwich at Knockum Hill, but it is what I call "Tennessee Mild" barbecue.  I'm more accustomed to the harsher barbecue flavors 100 miles north of Knockum.

Sunday February 19
 
We all gathered for a buffet brunch at Ellendales in Nashville.
Not regional or roadfood- the buffet offered both breakfast and lunch options
The highlight in my opinion being the omelet bar
 

 
 
Mine included tomato, roasted red pepper, mushrooms, capers, andouille sausage and fontina cheese.
 
See my trip report for the "Farewell" chapter.
