Amici, General Store opens

Dianne Yost Biz Buzz, News

Momma let me catch up! You’re peddlin’ too ding dang fast! Whew! There just ain’t nothin’ like celebratin’ Spring in Morgan County than a bike ride! The only thing better would be for us to sing a little Classic Motown! Hit it Momma! “I never met a girl who makes me feel the way that you do (It’s all right) . .. .Whenever I’m asked who makes my dreams real, I say that do you (you’re outta sight). So fee fi fo fum, Look out baby cause here I come . . Aahhhhha Get Ready, Get Ready. Cause here I come. Get ready cause here I come!”

I just love the Temptations and we can all get our fix of the Classic MoTown vibe on April 28 with the famous Dwight Wilson Band! They will be playin’ at the Humane Society of Morgan County’s fundraiser and Puppy Corn Hole Tournament! Ok the cool part of this event is that it’s takin’ place in a hanger at the Madison Airport (1878 Airport Blvd., Madison)! And, there’s a BBQ dinner, drinks, corn hole and the fab Dwight Wilson band! Tickets are only $35 and you can email the biz buzz at to get your ticket hand delivered or you can call the Humane Society of Morgan County at 706-343-9977! Come on y’all! Get your tickets today and let’s have a blast!

Ok y’all Get Ready! Amici – Pizza, Wings, Friends & Brewery is fixin’ to open at the new Amici Livery  location on West Washington Street! I toured the new location last Saturday and it’s just beautiful down to every last detail! I mean the bar is even made from wood panels from the original structure! There is tons of seating including a private dining area for meetings and events! But I love the outside seating area the most! It’s awesome! Amici is even gonna offer corn hole and bocce ball. The best part is that the menu is not changing although they’ll offer specials and will be brewing their own beer! Cannot wait! And remember this: Amici is hostin’ a community open house this Sunday, April 22 from noon until 6 p.m. Be there.

Back by popular demand . . . It’s The General Store starring our favorite chef Kenny Pritchett! Y’all have got to try it out! The General Store is located at 4420 Buckhead Road, Madison (nearly Buckhead), and it was recently re-opened by Kenny and his wife Linda! Here’s the what what: The General Store sells fabulously fresh locally grown eggs and produce and also offers great food for lunch and dinner! There are picnic tables out front if you want to eat outside! But y’all I swear  . . . The large Georgia steamed spicy shrimp are The. Best. Ever!

I picked up two pounds to bring to a party last Friday and they were like gone in a FLASH! They looked and tasted like the Big Reds you get on the Gulf of Mexico but BETTER! But that’s not all y’all! The full menu is this: Sandwiches like the Angus Burger, pulled pork Barbecue, Fish Fillet or Reuben (and I had the Reuben and it was delish!), Steamed Shrimp (half or one pound) or Low Country Boil; Platters like Fish, Shrimp, Clam Strips, White catfish, Fried Oysters; Grilled shrimp, Mahi-Mahi or Catfish fillets; and a nice children’s menu! Y’all have got to get over there and check it all out! Hours are Thursday, Friday and Saturday from 11 a.m. til 7 p.m. (or later if folks are still hangin’ out)! Tell Kenny the Biz Buzz sent you!

Ok that’s a wrap! Momma and I are gonna finish our bike ride! Y’all check this column next week for more Buzz on Biz!
