Lavender Roaring Fork Clinchfield always enjoyed a nice pizza pie, with a slice of amore on the side, so when Miss Generous Tupelo invited him to Beauregard’s Italian and Live Bait, he didn’t hesitate. The décor was a nod to the region’s rugged pioneering past, with miner’s lamps instead of candles and repurposed shovels for chairs. They shared a mischievous spirit and showed up for dinner in matching waders, with flies hooked through soft hats. There was no doubt they looked silly, but blind obedience to social expectations was not part of their vocabulary, although sushi was off the menu.
