As I mentioned to several of you at lunch today, I often go to Cheekwood but have never dined at their Pineapple Room Restaurant. Several members expressed an interest in joining me so let's do a lunch meetup! The Pineapple Room Restaurant overlooks the greenery of Cheekwood's west lawn. Cheekwood is located in Belle Meade. Cheekwood is a limestone mansion and extensive formal gardens inspired by the grand English houses of the 18th century. After lunch, we can explore the grounds and museum.
Parking is $3. The group rate is $10. Go ahead and pay the $12 normal admission ($10 for seniors) if you need to when you enter the grounds. Sometimes I pay there and sometimes at the visitor center depending on the crowds. I'll refund the $2 in cash when I see you at the restaurant. My cell is [masked] if you have any questions. I'll be outside the restaurant around 10:50 a.m. waiting for the doors to open. I was told we can enter the grounds before 11:00 a.m. so everyone plan to arrive in time to be at the restaurant when it opens at 11:00 a.m. Thanks!

Our RSVP policy "When you rsvp yes for a meetup, we ask that you attend or change your rsvp to “no” no later than 24 hours prior to the event. This will allow an opportunity for other members to make a reservation/move from the waiting list to going or allow the event host to call the restaurant and lower the reservation number if necessary. If a member habitually doesn’t attend a reservation or cancels a few hours before the meetup which hurts the chances of others to attend, we may have to remove that member from the group. We also ask that members are courteous to staff at the restaurants we frequent to ensure our group will be welcomed back. Thanks!"
