Katherine from Smoky Mountain Cafe, Chris from Nibble Me This, and I, would like to host a little get together for the local bloggers – you’re considered local if you’re willing to make the drive. We’re thinking in terms of a Saturday afternoon sometime from mid May through mid June at Larry’s place near Greenback Tn. There are many details to work out, but at this point, we’re just trying to determine interest level and find a good date. We’re not looking for a firm commitment now, but if you think you would be interested in participating, please email one of us with the Saturdays beginning with May 15 and ending with June 19 for which you are NOT, repeat NOT, able to come. We can then see which dates can accommodate the most people. We’d like to hear back from you by March 10.
Check out Chris’s site for a neat pic of the get together site.
The three of us along with Chris’s wife Alexis, met for the first time today for lunch today at Dead End BBQ in Knoxville, to get the party ball rolling. It was nice to meet the others and put people with the words I read – I’d like to be able to do that with all of you. This was only my second trip to Dead End and the meal was very good again. I’ve followed their performance on the competition circuit and notice they seem to score well in chicken, so I ordered the chicken plate. My home BBQ’d chicken is good, but this was the first restaurant BBQ I’ve eaten at where I would say I have some work to do to catch up- and I ate theirs without any sauce.
I don’t have the camera to do it justice, but the title shot is of the Smoky Mountains taken from my neighbor-on-the-hills yard on Friday afternoon. It’s not the Rockies in winter, but not a bad view for East Tennessee.
Have a great evening.
