KTs Bar & Grill on The Parkway in Sevierville, TN

KT's Bar & Grill on The Parkway in Sevierville, TN

You wouldn’t believe how hard it is to find a local place in a tourist town. J and I went on a quest to find something that wasn’t going to be cheesey or touristy, but we didn’t have an Internet connection in our cabin, so it was real hard to research. I can’t tell you the last time we went without Internet for 48 hours, but we made do.

The plan was to head back in to Sevierville because we noticed a county courthouse on the way in. There’s got to be a pub or something near the courthouse, right? I mean, where do employees go for dinner and a beer?

Well, it’s not in downtown Sevierville, that’s for sure. There was nothing. One place but it looked fancy and didn’t have a menu outside so we passed. Instead, J got her GPS out of her purse to see what sounded local.

When she turned it on, our location was back in Sevierrville near our cabin. She found a place with the word “grill” in it, so that’s where we went.  Read the rest of this entry »

Ben & Jerrys Homemade Ice Cream on The Parkway in Sevierville, TN

Ben & Jerry's Homemade Ice Cream on The Parkway in Sevierville, TN

After BBQ, J and I needed dessert. We were going to go check out the Parkway and see what we could find, but we stumbled across an outlet mall….and wouldn’t you know it, it’s a Tanger. J’s got some big changes coming up at work (more later….in another post) and needs to get some new clothes. I noticed there was an Under Armour Outlet and I wanted to look for Cold Weather Gloves. 

As we were weaving our way through, we saw a Ben & Jerry’s. It’s another one of those places that neither of us had ever been to and I’ve never even had Ben & Jerry’s from the grocery store, so why not. 

Ben & Jerry’s is in the Tanger Outlets in Sevierville on the Parkway. It’s a corner building with not a lot of space, but it’s designed to keep people moving. Pick up some ice cream then get back to shopping. I think there was only one or two tables in the whole store.  Read the rest of this entry »

Finally. We made it to the relaxing cabin high up on one of the Smoky mountains. We had a little trouble finding the place at first, but once we made it up, we changed into bathing suits to hit the top outside overlooking the wilderness. Great idea….until I got stung by a bee on my head. That hurt….a lot and it scared J from getting back in. I found some wasp & hornet spray, but it didn’t kill them off right away. I then dragged out a hose and tried to drown them out. No luck, so J called the leasing office and they sent someone up with more spray. He tried and thought he got rid of them, but they came back. So, we decided to go to dinner and give them time to die off. 

The Sevierville/Pigeon Forge/Gatlinburg area of Tennessee is really touristy and I’m not a touristy person. I don’t like fun I guess. I’m sure we’ll hit up some of the tourist spots while we’re here, but I really like the out of the way places too. 

On our way in to Sevierville, we passed a BBQ joint alongside the road. It looked like an old joint and there weren’t a lot of cars, but it was a Monday night. 

We drove back down the mountain and headed back the way we came. It was a few miles and I damn near missed it because the sign was knocked down, but I caught it out of the corner of my eye.  Read the rest of this entry »
