Austin Food and Wine Festival Recap Day 1

This has currently been the summer of the foodie and I am totally NOT complaining. A few weeks ago, I made the trek to Austin, Texas to partake in the Austin Food & Wine Festival.

During the Houston layover, I got to have my favorite beer.

One bonus about traveling on this trip is that I had a layover in my second city of Houston. I got to go back to Pappadaeux for some gumbo and oysters. Amazing!!

This is a new festival, only on it’s second year. I was excited to try it out, but also kinda wary due to the not-so-nice reviews I read about the first year mishaps. I applied for a media pass but was denied :(. Even this that… I still attended the festival on my own dime and enjoyed myself.

CMA Festival Week

It’s that time of year again. I love the CMA Fest week. I am a huge country music fan and a proud native of Nashville. I love it when country stars come back to the city. This week is always a busy week for me. I try to attend as many shows as possible.

Need some fun games to get you through the week? Or during the rainy moments that are predicted? Play one or both of these bingo games.

This one is brought to you by the guys at Nashvillist and works for both locals and tourist.

This bingo game is for those who are locals like me. Very funny!

I’ve already had the pleasure of hearing country singer, Randy Houser perform at the SiriusXM Highway Studio. I loved every moment of it. He is an amazing singer. I was even able to ask him a foodie question.

Country Chic Chronicles: As a food blogger, I am dying to know your favorite food restaurant in Nashville.
Randy Houser: I love The Southern Steak & Oyster, Arnold’s Meat and Three, and Loveless.
CCC: You’ve mentioned before that you could’ve been a chicken farmer if not a singer, are you a fan of Nashville’s hot chicken?
RH: Oh yes, I love Prince’s Hot Chicken. Afterwards, I need to sit in a vat of ice cream.

Laughter ensues….

I was very pleased to have met him and I look forward to supporting him more in the future.
