That would describe "Weezies" in Richmond but that's a looong way off the Parkway!

You sure it was "Weezies" or was it the Tuggles Gap restaurant?

If there's a "fried food only" place near the Parkway, my name is probably on the wall somewhere ... !

I think the place is in Buena Vista Lannis. A very long downhill run off the parkway on route 60 with a well needed gas stop at the bottom.

I know Buena Vista well, have eaten in all 6 restaurants there, and the only one that might qualify with the description given would be "Kenny's", an old burger/chicken/biscuit joint that does good breakfasts and everything else is cooked in a grease fryer.

If Richrd saw the large lady cooking in the back, it might easy have morphed from "Kenny's" to "Weezie's"!

That's 15th through the 17th of MAY, there, soldier.

The ride would still be fun a month late, but a little lonely .... !

Since I live fairly close I usually get to ride the course at least one other time each year. It is different but I enjoy all day rides through pretty country by myself.

I do try to pick a nice day rather than have to ride on a set date regardless of the weather.

We picked May because it's "just" before the season starts up there. Blowing Rock is a resort town and in the middle of June...it's elbow to elbow with people and so is the Parkway. Not to mention how many people are on Hwy 58 in June.

In 14 years I'd have to say we had more good weather overall than bad.

Wishing you all blue skies, warm weather and empty roads.

there's only two kinds of weather, dangerous and good. I can only think of two years that were not good.

It's the people that make the event special, the riding is secondary but plenty of fun no matter what.

The weather doesn't matter if there's sunshine in your heart.

Not being able to see on the Parkway from time to time is just a fact of life up here. It tends to spook the tourists more than it does the locals. I think if you do the research....speed is still the danger here.....and to me, our "dangerous" years were back when Windy still wore full leathers. wink
