Eatery to serve 'lucky' New Year's meal
Placeholder Image
The Dawsonville Pool Room will once again open for lunch on New Year's Day and welcomes everyone to ring in 2016 with the southern tradition of collard greens, black-eyed peas and hog jowls. The $8 all-you-can-eat-buffet, said to bring luck and fortune for the coming year, starts at 11 a.m. "We'll start cooking on Wednesday morning and then cook all day and Thursday morning, too," said Owner Gordon Pirkle. Using the same family recipe for years and years, the Pool Room crew plans to cook more than 60 bushels of greens, 80 pounds of black-eyed peas and about 150 pounds of pork for lunch.
