GOURMET HIGHWAY: Dinner With Sinatra – A Jack Dani...

By Doc Lawrence - LYNCHBURG, TENNESSEE-Frank Sinatra said he was “for anything that gets you through the night, be it prayer, tranquilizers or a bottle of Jack Daniel’s.” This peaceful Tennessee village and home of the famous whiskey invokes images of a Norman Rockwell painting. This is original America, with the ancient courthouse in the middle of the town square. Sidewalks feature smiling locals and the cultural heritage...
