I was really excited about this headline until I read "guy who owns Tootsies."

I think either idea is a good idea. Welcome, food options!

Oh! That would be great, I loved the parks in Texas and wished I had the funds to start one here.

Re: “Tennessee Brew Works Releases 'Tennessee Sessions' Line of Quaffable Beers

This is odd: I consider their original lineup of brews to all be session style. Light and unremarkable. For a guy who lathers on about booze non stop, I am at a loss trying to understand how you cannot handle a few pints of ale at any gravity? Last time I checked, an IPA is defined by the IBU, not the ABV. As always when visiting the TBW taproom: wear ear plugs.

Uh. Vanilla Extract. Vanilla beans soaked in either vodka or bourbon. Must stay in there for a lot longer than 240 hours.

Re: “Nashville-to-Memphis BBQ Trail: A Better Q for 'A to Z Guide to Southern Food'

Papa Kay Joe's is the best Q in middle TN. Clear omission on your part. Edley's is also good and the best in Nashville, in my opinion.

Re: “Win a Fridge Full of Tennessee Goodness From Local Palate Magazine

Don't forget Marcy Jams! from Lascassas, TN just outside of Murfreesboro. Best jams and jellies in TN!

Re: “Whiskey Wednesday: Four Roses Single Barrel Limited Edition

I was worried about that. You'd think with all the different liquor stores that I shop at, somebody would give a brother the heads up. 8^) Well, at least I got to try a 100 ml of it, and there's always next year.

Re: “Whiskey Wednesday: Four Roses Single Barrel Limited Edition

Sorry to tell you Chris but it has already come and gone in our market. It dropped about a month ago so your chances of finding one still on the shelves in Nashville are slim to none. Competition for limited allocation items in our area is brutal these days.

I'm a huge fan of Four Roses myself - they are my favorite distiller right now. The standard single barrel is the house pour in my abode so needless to say I was looking forward to this one. I'm much more partial to the high rye B mashbill and the F yeast strain is in the middle of my favorites so you can imagine my surprise when I was blown away by this one. It is absolutely my favorite Four Roses single barrel to date and I've had a lot of them.

If you want a good substitute a couple of stores have private selections - the OBSQ at Frugal right now is my favorite. There is also an OBSK at Midtown that is quite good but it's on the spicy side. Both of those will run you about half of what the 2014 Limited Edition cost as it went up this year to ~$100. Still worth it but that's the trend in limited releases now.

Re: “TGI Friday's on West End Closes

@S L, don't toy with our feelings. Maybe it's just fuzzy nostalgia but I could go for ye olden-days Houston's ribs and Kahlua brownie for dessert.

I love Nashville. I do. But this state/city is so mixed up.... Guns in bars- ok. Jolly Ranchers in vodka in bars- no way.

Re: “Could Past Perfect Have Been the Victim of a New TABC Regulation?

couldn't you just keep adding fresh stuff every other day or so and reset the clock on the infusion ticker itself?

and how can red bull be bad for an infusion but ok as a mixer???

It's a good thing there are so many geniuses in the ol' state building willing to do the hard work of protecting us from those evildoers! whew!

Ok, I just made that up.

Do you know people who actually go to TGI Fridays? That one or any of them? Ew.

I'm pretty sure they went under because the waitresses didn't wear enough flair.

Re: “Could Past Perfect Have Been the Victim of a New TABC Regulation?

Good article. One more year and I am free to get the fuck outta here. I would have never imagined that South Carolina would be a better place to live. Raw milk is legal with a simple disclaimer and the wine at Publix is *cheaper* than Red in Bellevue. And the soil is amazing for running a biodynamic farming operation. Enjoy the rest of your Orange air quality alert day.

Re: “Could Past Perfect Have Been the Victim of a New TABC Regulation?

Past perfect went under because of the owner, regardless of the new law, the owner did not know how to run a business and lacked in cleanliness within his establishment. He didn't treat his employees well either. I agree that this new law prob had some kind of effect on the restaurant, however, a majority had to do with the owner drinking to much tequila on the job and giving away tons of product; whether it was alcohol or food...

Re: “Could Past Perfect Have Been the Victim of a New TABC Regulation?

When the bill was introduced and nearing passage, I seem to recall the conjecture that it was just more state government protecting and enabling the Alcohol Beverage Distributor lobby that allowed this to even get written up. As in, 'stop allowing these people to buy generic vodka and create their own infusions when I have cases of much higher-priced infused vodkas in my warehouse needing to be sold!'

Nothing about its sporadic/targeted (?) enforcement seems to suggest anything different so far, sadly. It has nothing to do with consumer protection.

Clearly, to get fair representation in this climate, restaurant and bar owners just need to form their own lobby.

Re: “TGI Friday's on West End Closes

Rents in that corridor are higher than numerous other areas. There is a point where it is no longer profitable to operate a business. When that occurs the business closes. Merchants a long time successful business in downtown located in Cool Springs but eventually closed that location due to lack of profit. We go to work to sell our labor or intellicectual abilities for profit- converting them to cash. In each case the market determines the value and price paid. If another market says you are worth more or tour opportunities are better there, you move there. Same with any business.

They will be missed.
