To celebrate our 6 year anniversary Dave and I headed downtown Knoxville to the Crown & Goose pub to watch the Kentucky Derby and have dinner. We have both been to the Crown & Goose a few times and really liked it. Last night was no exception, the food was excellent, so was the service and atmosphere. We started off with a 1/2 dozen oysters for Dave and the Frenchman's cheese platter for me. The cheese platter came with Stilton (good, but definitely not my favorite), a triple creme (my favorite, perfect on crusty bread with walnuts, dried cranberries and honey) a sheep's milk cheese, Gruyere and Manchango. Unfortunately we didn't get photos of our appetizers because we were starving and dived right in! For dinner we split the sausage of the day, venison and blueberry which came with roasted sweet potatoes and Swiss chard. All excellent, the sausage was the perfect combination of sweet and spicy. We also had a few adult beverages to round out our evening!
