Stories from the Road: Live Catfish

I recently attended the ALLIANCE conference, this year held in Music City . . . Nashville, Tennessee.  The conference was well attended and informative, and the hotel was huge and amazing.  But what caught my eye was a BBQ restaurant that I passed daily on the drive from the convention center to the hotel.

Now I love me some BBQ, and was going to stop in for lunch, until I saw a sign out front that read “Come on in and see the LIVE Catfish”.  Catfish, live or otherwise, are not a draw for me, but especially in a BBQ joint where I have brisket and macaroni and cheese on my mind.  Perhaps I was not the target market for this advertising ploy, because I opted to drive on down the road to a different restaurant to find my brisket glory.  BBQ?  Yes, please.  Live catfish, well, no thank you.
