Can you believe another summer has come and gone? Seems like just yesterday I was talking to you all about the “dog days of summer” starting and now here we are in full fall decoration. I love this time of year with the crisp mornings and comfortable evenings. It is perfect weather to enjoy a meal on the Patio at the Farmhouse. Situated just off the Sun Porch, the Patio offers the perfect outdoor dining experience this time of year. Oh and in case you haven’t heard we are even offering live bluegrass out on the Patio on Friday and Saturday evenings starting at 5:30. Outta the Blue from Lenoir City, Tennessee has been performing for about a month now and will be playing thru November 24th. If you get a chance grab some friends and family and come on over to the Farmhouse for some downhome country cookin and country pickin too. Not to be left out, the Grill has some bluegrass pickin by their fire pit this fall as well. They are featuring Westwend, the Big Creek Bluegrass Band and the Colby Laney Trio on various Friday and Saturdays thru October. We would love to see you at either location!
Starting in October, Chef Roman has come up with a special for those of you enjoying dinner on the Patio on Friday and Saturday evenings … you can of course order from our regular menu OR you can choose our all you can eat Bluegrass and Beans menu featuring Pinto Beans, Cornbread and Beef Chili with fixins, a drink and dessert all for just $11.99 per person. I think he may have come up with a pretty good idea for these cooler evenings!
Also I don’t want to forget to mention that although The Original Applewood Farmhouse Restaurant is completely booked for Thanksgiving Day, the Applewood Grill still has space available for any of you still looking for someone to do the cooking for you. And starting October 15th we will be offering our annual Thanksgiving Feast To Go which features a 12lb Turkey with all the fixins to feed 4-6 people for only $99 (plus tax). Keep a watch out for us to post it on our Facebook or other social media.
But enough about us … Fall is always busy for us here at Applewood but never too busy for us to stop and say THANK YOU to all of you who stop in and visit with us when you are here in the Smokies. Without you there would not be an Applewood and we are very thankful for each of you … not just in the fall of the year but all year round. Before I close, I also want to take this opportunity to wish all of you a safe, healthy and happy fall. All of us here at Applewood sure look forward to seeing you and serving you soon! We may serve millions of people but you are still one in million to us and we appreciate you.
