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).

Music City Happenings: New Food Festival

Introducing greatness…..


As the press conference was going on last night, the twitter was going crazy. I am a huge fan of festivals especially ones that deal with food and wine. Can’t wait to recap my trip to the Austin Food & Wine Festival. I had an amazing time and was looking forward to the Atlanta Food & Wine Festival.

This new food and wine festival is coming here to my hometown and it sure sounds amazing. We have many excellent chefs coming on board and I am giddy!

The tickets go on sell this Friday! Support!

Here are more details:
Music City Eats: Nashville Food, Wine & Spirits Festival is the brainchild of Grammy award winning artists (and Nashville residents) Caleb and Nathan Followill of Kings of Leon, world renowned chef Jonathan Waxman, Austin-based C3 Presents — producer of Austin FOOD & WINE Festival, Austin City Limits Music Festival, and Lollapalooza — and Vector Management’s Ken Levitan and Andy Mendelsohn.

Taking place in the historic venues and outdoor spaces of downtown Nashville, Music City Eats makes its debut in 2013 with an authentic, fresh and inspiring experience that will have even the most discriminating gourmet coming back for more.

Nashville, Tennessee is known for more than just country music.  It is greatly known for its tasty “Hot Chicken”.
