Tennessean Columnist Features Three Bonelaw Clients in Round-Up of Local Favorites

The Tennessean’s news columnist Gail Kerr wrote an article in today’s paper about local places that residents of Nashville and Middle Tennessee often do not visit. In the round-up, three Bone McAllester Norton clients were highlighted: Fontanel, the former home of country star Barbara Mandrell; the Frist Center for Visual Arts and its “Sensuous Steel” exhibit; and Peg Leg Porker, the barbecue restaurant that recently opened in the Gulch.

Kerr has “a growing head-over heals crush on Peg Leg Porker, both because the barbecue is outstanding and because the owner, Carey Bringle, is so funny.”

Kerr noted that she has visited the Frist and Peg Leg Porker but has yet to make a trip to the Fontanel—something sure to be on the top of her list now that a 140-room Holiday Inn resort has been announced.

Bone McAllester Norton client Fontanel Mansion has teamed with Phil Prichard, who began Prichard’s Distillery in Kelso, Tenn. in 1997, to bring a distillery to the 136-acre property in Whites Creek. The distillery will use the first French-style alembic still of its kind in the state and should open in early September. Initial plans are to offer white whiskey, known as moonshine, and then, after the aging process has taken place, other spirits like brandy will be added. Besides the distillery, guests will have access to a tasting room, souvenir shop and sales showroom for products on-site at the Fontanel as well as from Prichard's distillery in Kelso.
