Mrs. Rogers makes its signature white-chocolate popcorn to-order, using local Kentucky ingredients as part of the Kentucky Proud program, which helps keep farm products fresh by cutting transportation time. The resulting sweet, salty, crunchy, and creamy gourmet popcorn contains only all-white, nearly hull-less kernels.
Admission to each event includes a picnic meal with barbecue plate and dessert, a wine tasting, and a glass of wine, sangria, soft drink, or bottomless sweet tea. As an added perk, purchasers also get a $5 coupon toward any additional purchase for the night of the barbecue. Doors open for both events at 6:30 p.m.
The primary goal of the husband-and-wife team behind Brannon Family Chiropractic is simple: to eliminate pain. Their expert treatments and adjustments are designed to ease the sort of spinal discomfort that can adversely affect quality of life, even when the pain isn't necessarily severe. After opening their first location, known as Eastland Chiropractic, the pair added the Brannon location in 2009, the better to meet their goal of subduing the region's aches one vertebra at a time. Today, Brannon Family Chiropractic is also home to the Serenity Massage Center—a tranquil space where licensed massage therapists work to release knots in backs, necks, shoulders, and Gordian shoelaces.
