Richmond has a plethora of fine-dining establishments, but the other benefit of heading to a Southern city like this one is down-home darn good comfort food. You’ll find breakfast with fresh biscuits, indulgent shrimp and grits, and, of course, fresh barbecue. Just a 15 minute drive from our inn, Grandpa Eddie’s Alabama Ribs & Barbecue serves up the Alabama-style ribs, Carolina barbecue and Southern sides owner Carey Friedman remembers his grandfather making for him. Not to mention the peanut butter pie for dessert.
Along with quality Southern-style food, Grandpa Eddie’s serves up live music on Friday and Saturday nights, but on Saturday, February 26, the music will go on all day at the Marathon Bluegrass Jam. From noon to midnight, bluegrass acts will play at a main stage and an open jam tent. All profits will be donated to the Richmond Fisher House, a home for the families of veterans receiving care at the Richmond Veterans Medical Center.
So plan to head on out, dig into some ‘cue, and relax with some bluegrass.
