A new restaurant just opened down the road. Succotash, its a cajun place that has great food and prices. Its an easy option for a quick lunch. They've been open for a week and I've eaten there 5 times. Po boys are terrific.

Butch has morning coffee covered, thank you.

The group hasn’t made any plans for lunch in Chattanooga on the Friday river run. Heather and I are fine with no set plans, there are so many great choices. Being a smaller group this year, I don’t think we need to prearrange the dinning event.
Thoughts?

Matt, If you guys do head to Chattanooga for a lunch run, you might want to give Jill at the marina a call. Her # is 423-266-1316. It looks like a small number of boats would go, but she will make sure you have enough dock space. I would call a day or two in advance with your best guess as to how many boats will be making the trip. One of the docks we have tied up to in the past has a combo lock on the gate. Ask her which dock you will be on, and if it's that one, get the combo......If you plan to go to Scotties (where we went last year), they should have plenty of dock space. Their # is 423-269-7487. I think they have tables outside, but not sure. Have a great weekend. Neel

Tables are inside at Scotties. Had lunch there last week and the food was great. Masks are mandatory till you take your seat and they'll take your temperature. Hope we can make this run and keep the tradition alive even though there just a few going.
I have a dock setup for small gatherings near my boat. Its a cool spot with a fridge, patio table and chairs seating for 10+ , music, sail shades lighting and i could bring my small grill over for cooking. I get a lot of cabin renters asking if the bar is open when they walk by. I hate that its going to be a small group this year but i think those who come will build stronger relationships that before. Looking forward to seeing y'all

Melissa and I will be happy to make Sausage Links and Waffles for Saturday Morning Breakfast and maybe some Orange Juice.
If we have a Friday or Saturday evening dinner/party , we will bring something for that also.

What can I bring to fill in the holes in the food department? If no suggestions I was thinking I can bring something store bought for dessert and/or maybe a big tupperware of pasta salad or something as a go along with Paula's a dinner. I'm good with trying the new restaurant(s) near the marina as well. Looks like I'll be coming solo again.
