|Cindy Tries A Sampling of Excellent Espresso Stout Ale at The Downtown Chattanooga Big River Grille and Brewing Works|
So...Chattanooga, AKA "Choo Choo Town" it was! We left Friday at 9:00, and under very clear and friendly skies we leisurely motored westward on I-75. We meandered through downtown Chattanooga, found convenient parking near the trendy Market /Broad Street area, and embarked on our adventure.

But on this occasion a decade later, we discovered that our wonderful memories have been tarnished by the reality of time and decay. The place has become a hoarder's den of the first magnitude. Books, magazines, newspapers, boxes, and trash now block passage in the aisles. We were saddened to see the terrible decline of such a unique book store.
After five minutes, we left the store and headed back up Broad Street, where we sought to slake our hunger and thirst at another old favorite place---the Big River Grille and Brewing Works.
