Join is for our monthly talk at Maple Hall!
Knoxville Cuisine with Jack Neely
What’s a Full House? Mets and Beans? A Pigburger? What’s Knoxville’s connection to sawmill gravy and the Cherokee Purple? And why were tamales popular in Knoxville more than 80 years before our first Mexican restaurant?
We don’t have all the answers, but we know some of them, and we want to hear your Knoxville food stories, too.
Join us for a suppertime discussion of what makes Knoxville cuisine different.
As always, Maple Hall will be offering a menu of delicious food, craft beers, and custom cocktails for the occasion. Admission is free. Please note event is 21+.
The construction equipment is gone (for the roadwork anyway) and Cumberland Avenue is now a park like street filled with shops and restaurants. But how did Cumberland Avenue come to be? What is the relationship between UT and “The Strip”? How did it affect the Ft. Sanders neighborhood?
The Cumberland Avenue Merchant’s Association and KHP invite you to come out and learn more about the fascinating street and encourage you to visit the many businesses along this avenue of Knoxville history.
Join us for a special book launch and signing for KHP’s most significant publication to date:
