Episode 12 - A Family-style Dining Experience Unlike Any Other
People come from all over the world to visit the Jack Daniel Distillery, but these days they’re also coming to Miss Mary Bobo’s for the unforgettable fried chicken, fried okra, Jack Daniel’s whipped cream, and other southern goodness. Join us for the final episode in this season of Around the Barrel with host Lucas Hendrickson and Debbie Baxter, proprietress of the historic boardinghouse.
Debbie, known – perhaps unfairly in her eyes – to be a serial prankster, sits down with Lucas to share stories of fun and mischief during her time as a host at Miss Mary’s. They delve into the history of the boardinghouse and how it came to serve the best southern cuisine to visitors from around the world. In 2017, guests from 47 different states in the U.S. and 28 countries came to Miss Mary Bobo’s for a family-style meal and to share conversations with family, friends and strangers.
