Names: Austin Edwards, John Willis, Matt Buck
Setting: The Southern Belly, 1332 Rosewood Dr.
So this is my first time here since this place changed its name from The Rolling Stone to The Southern Belly. What’s new?
Matt: They have seriously delicious barbecue.
John: They also have open mic jam sessions every Tuesday night.
So it’s scheduling more weekly events now?
Matt: Every Monday night they have open mic, singer-songwriter music. John and I host the Tuesday night Space Jam and we invite some of our musician friends, and anyone else is also welcome to join in.
So are you in any bands?
John: My band is called Dr. Willis.
Matt: I play in a band called By the Bull.
And what is the best food to order here?
John: Django. It’s unchained.
Matt: I’m all about The Wookie.
I had the Django tonight. It was seriously delicious.
Austin: Which shot should I take? The barbecue sauce or the whiskey?
Matt: I think you have just created a new type of shot. The sauce is so good you can shoot it.
John: Oh, you should call it the Train Shot. Every time the train comes by you take it.
