Adam Dalton Distillery's namesake aims to concoct craft liquor with a special distillation method that increases quality and decreases hangovers, according to Mountain Xpress. The spirited establishment's handcrafted rum pours as freely as the sky every time Fred Astaire performed his rain dance, along with an expansive roster of other drinks at a full-service bar, including beer, wine, and whiskey. As guests sip, their minds are free to wander to football games broadcast from televisions, warm paninis that complement cold brews, and regular live music or open-mic nights. Beer caps stud the corrugated-metal bar's surface, stretching out with colorful logos like a racecar driver's sleeve of corporate tattoos.

Carmel's whips together a menu of traditional Southern favorites with fresh, forward-looking ingredients fortified in cross-cuisine partnerships with locavores including Imladris Farm, Sunburst Trout Company, and Short Street Cakes. Ceremoniously cut the duct tape over a mouth to usher in the cornmeal-fried-chicken sandwich's apple-and-cheddar battering rams ($9.50), or fire up Sunday brunch with the shrimp and grits' spicy poblano pyre ($10). Evening ingesters, meanwhile, may retire to the warm incandescence of Carmel's ornate dining room to feast on savory mainstays, including the Hickory Nut Gap beef-and-mushroom jus of Carmel's meatloaf ($16).

Cracker brings their signature brand of irony and irreverence to a performance of their 1993 platinum album release, Kerosene Hat, which produced three radio hits including ‘90s alt-rock jam “Low.” The band’s power-pop-punk tunes have been bopping heads for more than 15 years and over the course of eight albums—making the musicians veterans of the rock scene. The indie-rock showcase includes a performance from Camper van Beethoven, a band that shares a lead singer and a backstage bathroom with Cracker.
