Pineapple Room Restaurant at Cheekwood

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!

Here's a link to Cheekwood's website with directions: http://www.cheekwood.org/Visitors/Hours_and_Admission.aspx

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!"

    We were fortunate to see the 55,000 tulips blooming through April. Looking forward to the Bruce Munro exhibit of "Light" May 24 - November 10, and "Scarecrows and Pumpkins" September 21 - October 31.

    Our Sunday brunch at the Pineapple Room was delightful! We sat at a long table with a beautiful view of the grounds. My food was delicious. Later, the tour of the Cheekwood mansion was enjoyable.

    If you don't need to pay for parking can drive right in. I just did. There are a few people standing after the gate that might be taking money.

    When I called a while back, I was told we could enter the grounds, but not the buildings, before 11 am. The lady at the gate just said we can't so just get to the restaurant when you can.

    I look forward to seeing everyone tomorrow. With several members already having memberships, we won't qualify for the group rate so it will be $12 admission, instead of $10. If you won't be able to join us, please update your rsvp. Thank you to those who already have! I'm sorry you won't be able to join us this time. If all goes well, I see more meetups in the future at Cheekwood.

      Hopefully they won't be at the gate, but I'll try to leave your name with them otherwise.

      Gina, my friend is running late so we won't be at the gate until about 11.
