Wow! What a life Buddy Finethy has led!
From a Dad who was on the run to finding comic books to creating the Mellow Mushroom art to... There is just a lot going on in this man's life. Did I mention he learned how to build a tribe from the Dead Heads? (That's the group of folks that followed the Grateful Dead around the country).
Hawg and Ale opened in April 2018 and Buddy and his partners created a place that includes art that focuses on American Bad a--es and food that celebrates the best in Southern BBQ. (They recently won best BBQ at the Taste of Marietta.)
I know you will enjoy this wide ranging and fun episode...

Pete Bush, Matt Rooke, Crista McCay, Michael Shaffer, Carey Cox, April Forshee, Brielle Gaines, Amber Markay Byrd, Jen Stark and Christie Clark.
Any thanks to everyone that has made Marietta Stories Podcast great!
Komal and Yogesh Patel moved to the US from India where they had a hybrid arranged marriage. The hybrid part is pretty interesting, you’ll have to hear how that worked.
Anyway, they were having some health issues and made a connection between their issues and not getting the right foods, like they had in India.
So they started Nature’s Pick and brought the best natural food to just west of the square on Whitlock Avenue.
Bill speaks with the Patel’s as well as some of the other folks working at the Taste of Marietta.
Mentioned on the episode:
Nature’s Pick Market
Tickled pink Reflexology

We talk about all those things plus:
