Tennessee State Representative

Tennessee State Representative - District 68

Nashville, TN – The House Finance, Ways and Means Committee will next week consider legislation to permit retail food stores to sell wine and retail package stores to sell alcoholic beverages seven days a week.

Presently, retailers can sell beer seven days a week in Tennessee, while the sale of wine and distilled spirits is limited to Monday through Saturday and is not allowed on certain holidays.

Dodging the Roadkill: Kentucky State BBQ Festival

 

Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyDanville, KY – What started as a weekend motorcycle trip through the beautiful Kentucky countryside, turned into a discovery of one of the coolest festivals I have ever been to.  

The Kentucky State BBQ Festival, in Danville Kentucky.   

The Danville event looked like an interesting place to go and who doesn’t love good BBQ?  And this festival featured the rock stars of the BBQ world, so, you know, somebody’s got to do it!

As a “foodie” myself, just the opportunity to meet Moe Cason and the legendary Mike Mills was enough for me, but seeing our Nashville friends, Peg Leg Porker was a real treat.  Learn more about this year’s Pitmasters here.
