Sunday night, April 1, Southern Foodways Alliance sponsored a celebration at Rio Mar to turn over the keys to Willie Mae Seaton, owner of the just-restored Willie Mae's Scotch House. The restaurant opened the next day, serving many of the volunteers and contributors who had been at the Rio Mar dinner and who helped rebuild her home and restaurant. The restaurant is open now; I had to go out of town so I wasn't able to eat there last week but will, I hope, this weekend.
