Come Enjoy a Taste of Blount, September 8


One of the best parts of being an HVAC expert dog for a company like MK Russell & Abbott is that I have the chance to write about much more than heating and cooling. Our company is heavily involved in the community—it’s one of the reasons we can offer such great personalized service to our customers—and that means I have opportunities to write about exciting local goings-on.

This time, I get to write about a topic dear to my heart… FOOD!

We Are Sponsors of the 15th Annual Taste of Blount!

Thursday September 8 is the 15th Annual Taste of Blount event, held by the Blount Country Chamber of Commerce. From 6 to 8 p.m. in Theater in the Park in Maryville, you can sample delicacies and specialties from many local restaurants, caterers, and gourmet grocers. Tickets are available through the Chamber of Commerce website, or you can purchase them on cash-only basis at the door on the night of the event.

What can you expect at Taste of Blount? Lots of mouth-watering wonders from the finest local food professionals. You’ll also have an opportunity to vote on your favorites in a variety of categories, such as best appetizer, main course, sandwich, and desert. Some of the winners from previous years include Lemon Grass, Full Service BBQ, McAlister’s Deli, and Chadwick’s Churn. There will also be samples of locally crafted spirits and beers.

Last year’s Taste of Blount had a record-setting crowd turn-out of more than six hundred people, and this year’s event promises to be just as exciting—or maybe more! For the last two years running, Rocky’s Jamaica Sunrise won the Best Overall and Best Main Course awards. Let’s see if they can turn it into a hat trick this year!

All of us at MK Russell & Abbott are proud to be part of this on-going community celebration.

Stay Cool (and save some jerk chicken for me),
