Danny and I went to Chaffins last week to a murder mystery at the backstage. It was hilarious, especially since the picked Danny to play Gus the milkman. They chose about a dozen other audience members to play a part too. It was a lot of fun.
Chaffins Dinner Barn Theatre, Nashville Theaters, Nashville Tourist Attractions Last year Danny and I went to Chaffins for our 20th anniversary. It is interesting how the stage works. It comes down from the second floor and the actors are already in position when the lights come on. We enjoyed a great meal then we laughed, laughed and laughed some more. We loved it.

Chaffins is on highway 100 just a short distance from the historic Natchez Trace Parkway. Taking a short drive along the parkway is a great way to see some of Tennessee's beautiful countryside.

Chaffins is also near the Loveless Cafe, famous for their biscuits.

Danny and I ate there with our friends Dave and Mary not to long ago.

A lot of country music stars stop in there for a great meal but we were not lucky enough to see any of them that morning.
