For anyone not familiar, the Townsend Fall Gathering is a casual event. No registration, no carshow, lots of hanging out in the parking lot, exploring the Smokies and just having a good time with car people!

There are a couple of new/expanded businesses in town since last year. The Company Distillery is open - great bourbon and gin offerings, along with a small food menu: [companydistilling.com]

And The Abbey is adding on a larger kitchen and more dining space. This is where our small group plays on Sunday afternoons (4-6). Great craft beers/ales and sandwiches: [www.townsendabbey.com]

Good Vibes on the River has some pretty good breakfasts and lunches: [www.goodvibesontherivertn.com]

And there's another new one, "Peaceful Side Social Brewery": [peacefulsidesocial.com] - great menu.

Mickey

Thanks so much for the reports and photos. Good to see some familiar faces. Perhaps in 2023 circumstances will allow me to be there again.
