Bailey and Cato, Capitol Grille, City House, Corsair, Martins BBQ, Mt Valley, and Yazoo with the help of Ketch, Morgan and friends, put on a great event called the Potlikker Film Festival at City House in the Germantown area of Nashville on Sunday April 25, 2010.
The Potlikker Film Festival will be held in Greenville, SC next year at about this same time of year. Potlikker Film Fest travels throughout the South from place to place, so it may not come back to Nashville for another decade. I was so lucky to be one of the 250 people to have a ticket for this event.
The film fest portion had 4 short films about Southern food. Tandy served up a lot of spicy popcorn for the film viewers. I love this spiced popcorn. The perfect snack for a movie.
There was plenty to drink, Corsair whiskey drinks, gin drink, vodka drink; there was plenty of Yazoo beer flowing from the Yazoo beer truck; there was plenty of Mt Valley water to drink.
The people there, I am excited to say, I saw Cat and Cribb there. They are getting ready to open a local organic market right down the street from me. I liked to talk about food with them. I saw Tom and Debbie, the source and maker of my fresh pasta. I saw Norm, one of the nicest guys in Nashville.
Ketch and Morgan played their instruments and sang with a bunch of other friends who played their instruments and sang American Southern songs. I really like Old Crow Medicine Show, and I rarely miss a show if I am in town. I was happy to hear them at the Potlikker Film Fest.
The rain held out to just the perfect time. The Potlikker Film Fest was from 4 to 7 pm, and it started to drizzle at about 7:30 pm. The drizzle helped escorts the stragglers to the door.
What a fun Sunday evening thing to do. We all said we want Tandy to have Sunday Supper be just like this every Sunday, and have the evening go on all night.
