Barbecue and Politics Thursday at the State Fairgrounds - 04/01/14
For decades, the "Sure Shot Rabbit Supper" was a Nasvhille tradition. Former sheriff Fate Thomas combined food and politics to raise money for local churches. After Fate ran afoul of the law the rabbit super disappeared but now thanks to Fate Thomas Junior it's back.
Thursday evening at the State Fairgrounds in South Nashville it will be a who's who of local politics. In one of the busiest county elections in recent memory, candidates will be pressing the flesh and looking to sway votes.
There will also be a straw poll. It's not scientific but might give us a glimpse at what the primary election results will look like. Best of all, I'm told the proceeds will be divided among a handful of Nashville churches.
If you live in Davidson County and love politics, this picnic is for you. It may be raining but you only have to make it from the car to the building.
