September’s “Uncorked” Keeps Whites Trendy After Labor Day

 

uncorked-3

Wine lovers, listen up! Puckett’s Boat House will hold the next session of its “Uncorked” wine tasting series on Tuesday, Sept. 27 from 6:30 p.m. until 8 p.m., and we’re setting out to prove that white wines aren’t just for summer sipping!

“Uncorked” is an interactive course designed to be informative and enjoyable for both wine connoisseurs and those with little to no knowledge on the topic. Participants will enjoy a pour of each of the month’s four featured wines with food pairings curated specially for each tasting by the Boat House executive chef, Donnie Counts, as they are guided through descriptions of the wines by certified sommelier and “Uncorked” leader, Keith Simpkins.

September’s theme of “Aromatic Whites” will give our guests an opportunity to explore tastings of lesser-known white wines: chenin blanc, falanghina, albariño and riesling; accompanied by raspberry goat cheese brie, assorted fruit and orange crème fraîche, fresh mussels, and bread pudding, respectively.

We encourage you to take notes throughout the evening and ask questions in a friendly and educational environment. After the class, the event’s presenting sponsor, Moon Wine & Spirits, will offer a coupon so those interested may purchase the wines tasted in the class.

Tickets are $30 per person, and seating is limited. More information can be found on the Boat House Facebook, and tickets are for sale here!

HELP PUCKETT’S SUPPORT WILLIAMSON COUNTY CASA AND BE ENTERED TO WIN A PLAYHOUSE!

e-casa-web-artPuckett’s Grocery in downtown Franklin and Puckett’s Boat House are currently selling raffle tickets to win the Williamson County CASA’s 2016 playhouse. This amazing local branch of a national non-profit organization provides volunteers to advocate in court on behalf — and alongside of — children who have been in situations of neglect or abuse, and we are thrilled to partner with them for this very important cause!

To raise funds each year, CASA sells raffle tickets for a playhouse that is donated by local partners. This year’s playhouse was designed and built by Franklin Firefighters Charities, and is valued at approximately $20,000.

Now here’s where we come in: during the month of September, diners (that’s YOU!) can purchase a raffle ticket, usually $20, for just $10 from either restaurant to be entered to win the playhouse. We will cover the other $10 for each ticket purchased all month! All proceeds from raffle ticket sales will benefit CASA, and the winner will be drawn at 5 p.m. on Oct. 29 during Pumpkinfest in Franklin.

Help us make a difference for the kids in our community buy grabbing a raffle ticket or two while you’re enjoying your favorite Puckett’s eats!

Kickin’ the “Scrub Deal” Up a Notch: Chattanooga Nurses Breakfast Monday, Sept. 12

0907160843e

Here’s a fun tidbit for ya about our Chattanooga location…we LOVE our local nurses! If you’re up at the crack of dawn to visit us, you’re likely to see a handful of nurses from Erlanger, Parkview or Memorial squeezing in some well-deserved relaxation after a long night shift.

Max Stephenson, our Chattanooga GM, started seeing so many nurses come in the restaurant that he began giving them what he affectionately refers to as the “scrub deal”–mimosas at the happy hour price.

Max & the Puckett’s crew noticed lots of regulars come in after their third shifts, and they wanted to do something special for a group of people constantly putting others before themselves. The Nurses Breakfast was created, and it will take place from 7 to 10 a.m. on Monday, September 12!

“It’s an honor to have nurses choosing to spend their time with us after getting off such an exhausting shift,” Max said. “We’ve really gotten to know a lot of them over time, and we’re very excited to be able to spoil them a little bit with this special breakfast!”

Nurses who come in on Monday wearing scrubs will be treated to tunes by Chattanooga native Courtney Holder from 8 to 9 a.m.–we’ll also have a $5 breakfast buffet and specially priced cocktails.

Please help us spread the word, Chattanoogans!
