Generous Helpings & Beer Fests

Are you enjoying the amazing Nashville weather this month? I sure am!!! This past weekend, I had the chance to road trip to Chattanooga to attend the Chattanooga Craft Beer Festival. I normally don’t get the chance to venture around our neighboring city much, but I am that I did. This beer fest was organized by the fine fellas from Rhizome Productions that produce many of the popular beer festivals in Nashville (East Nashville Beer Festival & Brew at the Zoo).

After returning from Austin Food & Wine Festival this past weekend, I am on a foodie high!! I will post my recap for the festival this weekend. I have always wanted to attend the “Taste of Cocktails” event in New Orleans, so I am glad that my city is getting a taste of what it will be like next week.

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.

Music City Happenings: Whiskey Sipping Ladies

20130531-123054.jpg

I am truly excited about this upcoming event in Nashville. I am a lover of whiskey. I crave Jack Daniels and love Corsair. I can’t wait to gather with my girlfriends at this upcoming event. Women Like Whiskey Too is an awesome concept! Men are in awe when I order a Jack at the bar.

Interested in attending? Here are more details.

On Thursday, June 13, Collier and McKeel Handcrafted Tennessee Whiskey will sponsor the first-ever “Women Like Whiskey Too” event, one that will celebrate the industry’s new tastemakers through a spirit tasting and a cocktail demonstration at Cabana, beginning at 6:30 p.m.

This will be a casual sip-and-learn event that encourages both the social and the sophisticated aspects of whiskey drinking. ‘Women Like Whiskey Too’ is about promoting a community that understands men aren’t the only ones who enjoy a little slow sipping.

Craft Brewed: awesome beers to-go

Nashville is slowly becoming a great city for good craft beers. Not only are you able to find a diverse amount of draft craft beers on tap at our local Flying Saucer and Yazoo, but you can also take your favorite craft beers home with you. Hopefully, it will be cheaper, since the beer tax bill was passed a few weeks ago.
