It’s that time again – Taste of Nashville, one of Nashville’s biggest and best Food & Drink events, is just a few days away!

As I scanned over the event website, I noticed several restaurants/food vendors that I’ve written about here on the blog before: Etch, Silo, Smoke Et Al, Riff’s, Biscuit Love, and Jeni’s Ice Cream, just to name a few. Plus there are a few new-to-me spots that I’m excited to taste for the first time on Friday night: Cafe Fundamental, Gus’s Fried Chicken, Kay Bob’s and Fat Bottom Brewing.

Of course, there is a much longer list of food and drink options in addition to those I mentioned, so hop over to the event page to see for yourself!

Guess what?? I have 2 general admission tickets ($130 value) to give away to one of my lovely readers! Since the event is just a few days away, the entry window for this contest will be a short one.

    There are so many that I’m not sure I can make up my mind. As a Southern girl and Nashville native, Biscuit Love is hard to beat. However, I’m dying to try Etch & Silo too! Loved your posts re. the Goo Goo birthday activities. My grandfather worked there when my mother was child, and she remembers him bringing home large buckets of the “rejects.” I have fond memories of school field trips to the production facility :)
