You’ll also need to know…
- Doc owns the Dam. He has a great knowledge of business, but he’s not afraid to kick you out if you cause trouble. After all, he graduated junior college and served in the National Guard. If you’ve had too many that’s okay because it’s more money for him. But, guaranteed you’re going to sleep it off on the cot in his office – no questions asked. His motto is: “Sleep it off here, we also serve breakfast.”
- Roxy Herringbone has been the Dam’s manager and head chef for 20 years. She started out as a feisty waitress until the glitter faded. Now, she’s wiser than the owl that lives in the oak tree in the parking lot. She’s been married twice, but the third one is going to be the charm. She just knows it. And she fries the best chicken this side of the Mississippi. She’ll post great southern recipies from time to time on the Dam’s web site. Roxy’s motto: Remember that you can add “With Bourbon Sauce” to any recipe and double the possibilities. And the fun!
- Shotz Daniel is the bartender and resident foodie (but he will kill you if you call him a foodie).
- Melvin ‘Strings’ Gibson is the pride of Catfish County. Strings spent 7 months in Nashville as a singer/songwriter. He’s got pictures of himself standing outside Tootsie’s, the Bluebird Café, and the Opry House. You name it, and he’s been by it. Concurrently with his career in Music City, Strings worked as the lead cook at the Waffle House on Briley Parkway – not because he needed the money or because he wasn’t successful, mind you. He just loved the people. Strings’ repertoire is a classic mix of Waylon, Willie, Elvis and all things God, family and beer. Catch his gig at the Dam on Friday and Saturday nights, and Sunday afternoons.
- Officer Big John Floyd patrols the south end of Catfish County as an officer of the Catfish Rural Area Police (C.R.A.P.).
