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.
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!
Be sure to check out Nashville’s new convention center which is the host of the fan experience.
Nashville on the Cheap…. Check out this cool link from the folks over at WSIX on how to enjoy CMA Fest on the cheap.
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.
I was very pleased to have met him and I look forward to supporting him more in the future.
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.
The cost is $10 at the door. Find your cutest summer cocktail dress and join me at Cabana!
As a crawfish lover, I can’t wait until Saturday. I am anxiously checking weather channel to see what the weather will be on Saturday. I attended the event last year, and it was freezing. Looking forward to good spring weather this year.
Looking for something to do this week? How about drinking? Give your liver a good exercise.
