The “Tennessee Flavors” benefit for the Culinary Arts Program at Nashville State Community College, is a week away. Are you planning to attend? I have to say, with over 70 local food and drink artisans (see below) preparing “Homegrown Tennessee Products”, this is certainly a tasting event you don’t want to miss. I went the first year and thoroughly enjoyed myself, but sadly had to miss last year because I was out of town. Luckily, this year, I’m around and will most certainly be there!

    I went on a tour of the Corsair Distillery a while ago and really enjoyed tasting the different spirits and hearing about their limited edition/experimental flavors. I was super bummed that they didn’t have their absinthe to taste but I did get a laugh out of a story the guide told us. Apparently the bottles of liquor they have on display by the end of their bar are only filled with clear or colored water. He says sometimes they have people walk off with one of the bottles thinking they actually contain the real stuff. He gets a kick out of imagining the look on the would be thieves faces when they get home and open up their score only to taste stale water.

    All-star list, for sure! Etch would have to be one of my favorites. American Born Moonshine – those guys ROCK!

    Nashville dining is getting better than ever! First of all, not only did I LIKE your site, I LOVE it! I eat out quite often and it’s important to me to eat clean, healthy foods. What makes me really SMILE is that it is easier than ever to find quality, fresh, local and organic foods at many of our Nashville eateries. I am eager to visit each of the vendors, talk with the chefs and get even more ideas of where to eat in this fine city of ours. All the best to you, my new smiling blogger friend. I’m just getting started, too, blogging my best healthy and delicious creations. <3

    My favorite memory is with Arrington Vineyards. That’s where my bridesmaids and my best girlfriends had my bachelorette party. Not only was the scenery beautiful and the wine delicious…but I knew having it out in the country on the Arrington Vineyard property would eliminate most possibilities of terribly embarrassing situations that seem to occur during other bachelorette parties down on Broadway. :)

    I would be happy to regale you with a story about my experiences with Popcorn Sutton’s fine libations. Unfortunately, I am never able to remember much the next day!
