AN EVENING IN DOWNTOWN KNOXVILLE, TENNESSEE

The firm that handles my and my brother-in-law’s retirement fortunes provided us with free tickets to see James Gregory at the beautiful Tennessee Theater Friday (the 13th) evening! Go to Mushy’s Moochings for photos of the evening.

We enjoyed a very nice meal at the Downtown Grille and Brewery prior to the comedy concert. These were our selections:

The Angus Burger - It's a half-pound of ground beef cooked to your liking and served on a corn meal bun topped with lettuce, tomatoes, and red onions (mustard and mayo upon request). We then dress it with another half-pound of golden brown potato sticks (french fries friend, french fries). For a nominal fee you can top this classic patty with either: 1 of our 8 different cheese choices, bacon, mushrooms, or any combination thereof.

The Santa Fe Chicken - This monster of a chicken sandwich will fire up your taste buds to get them ready for a wave of flavors that will keep you searching for the next bite - watch your fingers around the edges. We cover our chicken burger with barbecue sauce, red onions, both cheddar and Monterey jack cheeses and jalapenos. We provide a side of guacamole for spreading on your bun (not that one wise guy). Oh yeah, not that you'll need them, but we'll throw in the half-pound of fries.

The Mesquite Grilled Fajita Salad - For those of you that didn't want the full fajita dish or are afraid of the sizzle they make, we offer them in a salad version. You get your choice of steak, chicken, or portabella. We lay these on top of a bed of romaine or iceberg lettuce mix, pico de gallo, mixed cheese, sour cream, red onions, Mexican veggies, and black olives.

All topped off with a little Downtown Blonde Ale - a light-bodied Kolsch displays a smooth malt note and a hint of fruit flavor in the finish. The Kolsch style has little hop flavor or aroma, letting the sweet malt taste prevail.

Once inside the beautifully restored theater, beer in hand, we settled in for a great show. Judy and I had seen James some 15 years ago, but he was even funnier Friday evening. However, the old boy had put on about a hundred pounds!

The event was in support of the West Knoxville Rotary Club, who does a lot of charitable work in the area.

Should you get an opportunity to see James Gregory, we recommend you go. He is a hilariously funny Georgia boy and he does not curse at all…I think there was one damn…but people can be funny without using foul language.

Burger King makes an Angus burger that's a great meal. Something they do with the sauce makes it better. And those fries look fat and juicy good.
