As with most semi-underground suppers clubs, you need to be in the know to find out when and where the next event will be in time to make reservations. If you'd like to get on the list, sign up at the website or like Buttermilk Road Sunday Suppers on Facebook. For her next trick, Donovan is returning to Andy Mumma's Barista Parlor in East Nashville on Sunday, Nov. 18.
As usual, the fabulous Robin Riddell will choose the wine pairings to accompany Donovan's thematic menu. the Nov. 18 dinner has a "back to nature" theme and is completely vegetarian. If you are thinking of cutting back on your meat intake ahead of the Thanksgiving food orgy, check out this tantalizing menu:

Attendees are asked to make a suggested $80 donation when they reserve their spot at the table here. "Suggested," as in if you don't chip in, Lisa won't tell you when dinner starts or where the next one will be. From all I've heard, you might even want to exceed the suggested amount considering the quality of the food.
