A Flood Recovery Party

Many Nashville and Tennessee residents marked the anniversary of the May flood with an event this week. We can't think of a better way to celebrate recovery than visiting the newly rehabbed house of friends and then settling in with a Yazoo beer and some great food. Doug and Jennifer invited us to their flood recovery party in Old Hickory and it turned out to be one heck of a food and drink day. Let's start with the beverages: five different types of Yazoo in growlers and a mini-keg. Homemade white wine with a Riesling-like snap and Sangria that had been steeped for days. And then came the food: pizza stone pizza, carefully cooked for a perfect crust, with homemade dough and toppings; oysters and shrimp literally packed in a cooler and driven from Florida straight to curbside; a fruit torte from Milan, tangy rough-cut slaw..we could go on. For a few hours this particular driveway may have been one of the better restaurants in town. We appreciate the invitation and the opportunity to share the occasion.

Thanks for the compliments. We loved having you. We could not have made it through without our great friends, and could not have made it the party it was without all their help.
