At the last minute, we were able to snag a reservation at Miss Mary Bobo's for lunch. Miss Bobo's is quite the place! Each person is assigned a room where they will eat family style with other strangers. We table has a hostess that explains the meal and gives a short history of the house and town. We feasted on country ham, fried chicken, fried okra, squash casserole, apples in Jack, pinto beans, and all kinds of fantastic Southern yummies. We chatted with some Southern belles from Georgia, a family who was making their semi-annual trip, and other Nashvillians. By the time we managed to choke dessert down, we had to be practically rolled from the room. Some super good eats!!!
After lunch, we opted for walking to the Jack Daniels distillery for a tour. Our guide had an amazing Southern accent that had us in giggles. Because the distillery is in a dry county we were not able to partake in any whiskey drinking, but did enjoy a nice glass of lemonade after our tour. I now feel a little more knowledgeable about whiskey and enjoyed hearing stories of the famous Southern gentleman Jack who died by kicking his safe!
We enjoyed our scenic ride home listening to some country tunes and soaking up the good weather. Lynchburg, Miss Bobo's, Jack's, and good girlfriends really did make for the perfect daytrip!
