Surely everyone here is familiar with Nashville-based artisanal chocolate makers Olive & Sinclair, yes? O&S is run by Scott Witherow, and his chocolate has been called "exquisite" by Gwyneth Paltrow and "off the charts" by us.
Well, according to a Facebook post from The Features, "Olive & Sinclair has made a special chocolate bar in celebration of the new Wilderness album. It's almond with a hint of oak." Almond with a hint of oak? WHAT?! More like awesome with a hint of dope. ("Dope" the adjective, that is. I'm not implying that they put weed in their chocolate.) The special-edition chocolate bars (only 300 were made) will be available at The Features' album-release celebration this Saturday, Aug. 27, at Mercy Lounge, as well as at other "select spots" (Grimey's among them). Also, Calf Killer Beer of Sparta, Tenn., (which is owned by former Features guitarist Don Sergio and his brother Dave) has made a special Wilderness-edition beer that will be available on draft at the show. In case you need to be reminded, The Features killed it at our anniversary party last weekend, and odds are good that they'll do it again come Saturday. Fantastic tunes. Delicious chocolate. These guys only hit home runs.
