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.
