A Big Week of Food & Drink Ahead

Gatsby for Grace

April 16th
7 pm – 2 am

411 Broadway Ave
Nashville, TN 37203

Cost: $125

If you tell me that there’s a party and The Patterson House libations are being served, you know you’ve got my attention. Then mention that this particular event is taking place at the rooftop event space where I got married, and well, I’m there! While I’m looking forward to the cocktails and the delicious food, I’m also hoping I can score during the silent auction. I’ve got my eye on one particular item that’s up for bid– a lesson with friends at your own home with a TPH mixologist. How fun is that?!

And last but certainly not least, next Thursday night Top Chef alums Arnold Myint and Tiffany Derry are joining forces at Cha Chah to bring us a 5-course Sake Dinner to benefit Japanese tsunami victims. I’ve had the pleasure of participating in some of Arnold’s multi-course dinners before, so I can assure you, this will definitely be an experience to remember.

So will I see any of you at these events? I hope so!
