We attended the most recent 'Songwriters in the Round' at the Balsam Mtn. Inn. It was a totally enjoyable event, and we will definitely go again. The buffet food was delicious with one note...We were offered 'times' to attend the buffet and chose the Early Seating at 6:00. I'm glad we did, because I noticed that when the appetizers were gone, they were never replaced & folks coming to the late seating or at the end of the line never got the chance to try several of the offerings and missed out. Dessert was the same way. By the time we went to get some, the crust was totally gone from the Apple Strudel and only a few apples were left. They were delicious though. The other offerings were well-picked over, but we were able to get a small sampling. Don't let this stop you from attending....just go early!
