The Progressive Dinner

One of our favorite holiday traditions is attending the Progressive Dinner in Tennessee's oldest town, Jonesborough. This event is sponsored by the Heritage Alliance of Northeast Tennessee and Southwest Virginia. 

This year we visited five different historic locations while having one course in each location.

Each of the buildings has been lovingly restored and decorated beautifully for the holidays.

Musicians performed at each location.

At least one beautifully decorated tree was always part of the decor.

The main course was served at the McKinney Center at Booker T. Washington School.

Mr. Mickey and I always request a vegetarian entree. 

These students are so talented!

We shared our table with a lovely family from Knoxville. Both parents are physicians and the daughters were so delightful to visit with.

Some of the homes we visited were built in the late 1800's.

We adore the Jonesborough Novelty Band!

For a very special treat this year, we heard Jonesborough Mayor, Kelly Wolfe perform "I'll Have A Blue Christmas". Elvis would have been proud of him!

More holiday events to follow!

This evening I wore a black jacket by French Connection from Saks Off 5th. The leggings are by Fabrizio Gianni. The boots are by Nine West via Saks Off 5th. I also wore a long sleeve red tee from Kohl's with a red scarf from Target.

Thank you for joining Mr. Mickey and me on this journey through midlife and beyond. The second fifty years are truly the best!
