What could make for a more perfect Southern summer night than sipping cocktails on the front porch? When the sipping is followed by the exploration of a historic plantation and farm, of course. We did just that last weekend with other Nashville bloggers at Thompson Station’s newest event venue and restaurant, Homestead Manor. More…
Our first supper club of 2015 required no pre-date menu study,
no valet parking
and no reservation.
We didn’t feel obligated to have perfect table posture or pressured to choose the right fork.
The toughest decision we had to make all night was booth—or table.
There’s a first time for everything and lately, Nashville has gained plenty of press. We are ranked as one of the top cities for singles, millennials, business and “to party in America” per Travel + Leisure, Forbes and Men’s Fitness respectively. And when your city is hot, all sorts of interesting events come your way. If you haven’t read the news lately, you may not know that Sports Illustrated is announcing its swimsuit lineup right here in Nashville, February 11-12. That’s right, the launch of the annual Swimsuit issue of SI. Our lovely landlocked town will be infiltrated by models, their entourage, and model stalkers for a two-day party downtown.
So ladies of Sports Illustrated, welcome to Nashville! We hope you find our city and accommodations welcoming. And because you have just been graced with the biggest honor a body can receive, you should indulge in one of Nashville’s greatest legacies: good ole southern food. Allow us to introduce you to five foods you’re sure to love! This town doesn’t mess around when it comes to eating well.
An important part of my weekend routine has revolved around where the Biscuit Love Truck was parked and serving. I had it down: Franklin Farmers Market on Saturdays early or White’s Mercantile on Sundays. And I had to be prompt, because when they run out of menu items on the truck, my craving will have to wait another week. You could call it routine, but the big L-O-V-E was how I feel about that truck. Big Southern tastes to warm the belly and start the day right? Yes, most definitely LOVE. And now the beloved truck is Nashville newest breakfast and lunch spot, Biscuit Love Brunch.
