Tree Party Invite
Knoxville, TN/December 2002

Tie one on our Christmas tree ...

Who: The Benz and Edge's
What: Our 13th annual Christmas tree desecration party, in which assorted stooges put homemade, stupendously cool decorations on our unsuspecting evergreen. We have only one rule: You CAN'T buy the decoration. Also, remember that children are invited to the party. Ornaments should be rated "G" or "PG."
Where: 11517 Hardin Valley Road. I-40 to Campbell Station Road exit. North on Campbell Station road until it Ts. Go left at the T on Hardin Valley Road. Our house is the third driveway on the right. We'll have it lit up, but watch closely. It can be tough to spot.
Or if you prefer, head north on Pellissippi, take the Hardin Valley Road exit, then head west (toward Pellissippi State) for 2.4 miles. The house will be on the right, three driveways past Steele Road. Map? Lost? Call 691-7731.
Important: We will have valet parking to avoid a repeat of The Stuck in the Mud Incident of 2000. You can either pull into the driveway and your car will be parked, or you can park at Sims store (near the elementary school, right before Steele Road) and you will be driven up to the party.

When: Saturday, Dec. 14 at 7 p.m. Children are welcome.
Why: Why not, wise guy?
How: Make your own decoration. We'll have beer, Spiney's infamous margaritas, non-alcoholic beverages and vats of steaming green chile. Extra beverages and/or food will be welcome but aren't required.
