Those who don’t know Chattanooga find out fairly quickly that we love the quirky side of life, with plenty of reality mixed in and most of the fluff left out. It’s what has drawn many to transplant their roots here and what keeps visitors coming back again and again. Finding niches in the city that embody this kind of energy makes one feel like you have stumbled onto an old friend that you haven’t previously met.
As the CMB team gathered at The Spot on a cold and rainy afternoon, we made these connections with new and old friends, and left feeling like we’d love to do it again tomorrow.
Like the city we love to live in and write about, The Spot met us like an old friend, patted us on the back and said, “You are still hip and cool and fun to be around.” Okay, maybe a restaurant can’t speak to you, but we did leave full of good food and drinks, satisfying conversation promoted by an easy going and warm atmosphere, and looking forward to another year of writing, gathering and getting to know Chattanooga better…and many more trips back to The Spot.
