Bacon Cinnamon Rolls

The three chicks always strive for innovation here at the world headquarters of the Community Resource Center, where I am the executive director, chief fundraiser and toilet cleaner. Especially on Bacon Wednesdays. Yes, every Wednesday we eat bacon in some form or another. Why would you not have Bacon Wednesdays? Section 3, Paragraph 28 in…

Bow to King Frank and Queen Janice

It was a great Oyster Easter! The weather was perfect. The candidates for king and queen were on their best game, raising money and having fun on behalf of the Community Resource Center. A huge thanks to Roger Barnett and Patricia Apple, Rob Wagner and Chrystie Wooley, and Buddy Messer and Kim Hunter for their…

Meet our royalty

Hey, did you know that Oyster Easter and the Swan Ball are exactly the same age? We both turn 50 this year. Which one do you think is more fun? Since we’re junkyard dogs, we’ll never be invited to the Swan Ball so we’ll pick Oyster Easter! Our King and Queen candidates for Oyster Easter…

We’re Number One!

Oyster Easter has been voted the Best Charity Event by readers of the Nashville Scene in its Best of Nashville Contest! Thanks readers! We must assume that you’ve all been to the first and best Spring party and enjoyed all the oysters you can eat, a sumptuous Cajun Buffet by South Street, the great music…

Mystery boxes

A more traditional enterprise might call this inventory control. We just call it sorting. CRC is truly blessed to get bulk donations from several major distributors that come boxed like mystery Christmas presents. You just never know what’s inside until you open the box and some of the contents can be, well, silly. Even slightly…

Fun times with Oyster Easter Royals

Two ways to kick out the royal jams this weekend and support your favorite candidates for Oyster Easter King and Queen. Friday night, you are invited to a Wedneck Weddin’ Weception for newlyweds Patricia Apple and Roger Barnett. In lieu of wedding gifts, make a donation to the Community Resource Center a.k.a. Chick Central. Wear…

Bacon crackers

We are having a very-high powered meeting this afternoon with a possible collaborator on our pallet project. Since it is our custom to serve light cocktails by the dock door on sunny 80-degree days, we needed a suitable accompaniment. And it is Bacon Wednesday. So we will be serving bacon crackers. I’ll just get right…

Pallets, people

Don’t you hate it when it’s right there in front of your face and you miss it? It seems like forever that we’ve been trying to figure out a social enterprise model that fits with CRC. Social enterprise = a profitable revenue stream. Moolah. But, as I can tell you from the 134 classes on…

Bacon pancakes

It is once again Bacon Wednesday at the world headquarters of the Community Resource Center. We are particularly deserving of Bacon Wednesday this week because we held the giveaway yesterday and Monday. More than 60 of our nonprofit partners got basic necessities for their clients such as soap, shampoo, hand sanitizer, cleaning supplies and laundry…

Bacon Day

Here at the world headquarters of the Community Resource Center we have declared Wednesdays to be Bacon Day. By the way, it has come to my attention that I do not include information on the important work we do every day at CRC on this blog nearly enough so I will intersperse important information in…
