Topic Wiki

In CLT, Chabad is the only Minyan, and it has daily Shacharis that's called for 6:30AM but practically doesn't start till 6:40AM. Mincha/Maariv is at Shkia. It's a 5 minute drive from there to Gleiberman's, the only Kosher grocery/restaurant in town. It's open every night, and closes around 7:30PM (at least this was in April before Pesach), which worked out well for getting some dinner and then going to Mincha/Maariv. Food was surprisingly reasonably priced for being out of town and was on the whole very good. You'll need to be patient with ordering and getting food unless you feel comfortable getting up and finding the waiter in the grocery and pushing things along, etc (which didn't seem to bother them). For $25, they delivered a week's worth of lunch meals pre-wrapped for oven warming to the hotel I was staying at for work. Jeff Gleiberman is a sweetheart who really tries hard to keep his store afloat and genuinely seems like he's doing it to help the community and guests. - @Yehuda

Nice TR! It's on my list of Chol HaMoed trip to take from PHL, but it'll have to wait until after this year's Acadia NP trip.

Acadia has the advantage of being more varied (mountains, beaches, ocean), but the Smokies are more epic. Both are great Chol Hamoed options.

Yes, TYS is much closer. A day and a half is enough to see the main things I'd say.

So now its to decide if I want to do CLT for 4.5k Avois or 10k UA for TYS!

Arriving 10am leaving late PM. During chanukka. Got a cheap rental. What's there to do? Would like something cool but not expensive and obviously nothing cliche. Something... different.

Just one minyan at chabad. Times on website. Gliebermans doesn't open until about 10 and then through about 6 but if you call he is apparently accommodating. Both are some distance from CLT.

Thanks. Chabad has a minyan every day (morning and evening?)
Gliebermans serves dinner every night? And they close at 6? How's the food?

When we ate at Gleibermans a couple of years ago the food was excellent and I would definitely go back if I was passing through and needed a meal. .  You just had to be patient.  Not a place to go to if you are in a rush.
