Here's a sweet little item of interest to fans of the great food at MacK & Kates Cafe in Franklin (and Macke's in Green Hills). MacK & Kates is joining with Bear Creek Farms to celebrate the marriage of two Bear Creek Farm pigs at their Swine Soiree benefiting Linda’s Hope
on May 21.
Earl and Priscilla will wed at a party from 3 to 5 p.m. at the recently relocated MacK & Kate's, at the corner of Moore's Lane and Franklin Road. It's a good way to get to know the restaurant, which relocated last November from Kingston Springs. Owners Jan and Bernie Strawn call their food "urban country" or "Southern food with a twist," and the fresh, inventive, well-prepared food seems like a good fit in the neighborhood.
The Southern-style, family-friendly summer party will include a Low Country Boil (shrimp, potatoes, corn, etc.), cornbread, a popcorn station, bluegrass music and a silent auction. For kids there will be nonalcoholic beverages, face-painting, live animals to visit with and games. For grownups, there will be a cash bar with beer, wine and the restaurant's signature Squealer Martini.
Swine Soiree raises funds and awareness for Linda’s Hope, a local nonprofit dedicated to pancreatic cancer research. All ages are welcome. Tickets are just $15 and available at the door. For more details, email Jessica Henson at email@example.com or call 591-4104.
