Hang with the mayor at Nick & J's

The county on Friday will continue its “lunch with the mayor” series, this time at Nick & J's Cafe at the Lovell Road exit off Pellissippi Parkway. The event, as always, is Dutch treat, and the restaurant – according to its website – will serve “southern comfort food in a delightful diner setting."

The luncheons are an offshoot of the mayor's “cash mob,” a concept that encourages people to show up at a small business at the same time and shop. It appears that the luncheons will move to a once-a-month schedule and the mobs will become a quarterly event.

In the meantime, Burchett still makes fun of his chief of staff for trying to shoot down the whole (so far successful) concept when he first proposed it.
