The Sweet Spot in Downtown Clarksdale!!
When people speak of “Southern Hospitality,” they must be channeling this family-run music and food venue, once again, right in the middle of everything else that matters in Clarksdale. Art and Carol Crivaro, along with daughter, Amanda, present much of the local blues talent, along with special guests on Monday nights. Their casual, warm personalities create a very special vibe for their repeat performers like, Sean “Bad” Apple, Watermelon Slim, LaLa Craig, and others, including Art on the bongoes, and Carol on her BBQ tongs. Amanda is eye-candy on the move, serving drinks, and dazzling with her smile!! I thought they were open on Wednesday nights also, but probably best to give them call first. Like other local venues, there is an outside comfort zone that allows pre-lubrication, smoking, and idle chatter. Inside, on their $10.00 all you can eat spaghetti and meatball nights, I look forward to the treat even if I’ve eaten dinner elsewhere!! If you visit Clarksdale, you need to stop by here, period!!
