Music City Spirits & Cocktail Festival: a giveaway!



Earlier this week in my list of favorite upcoming April food & drink happenings, I highlighted the Music City Spirits and Cocktail Festival. Well, I don’t think I adequately communicated my enthusiasm for the event, so I’m back today to tell you more!

Happening April 29th – May 3rd, the schedule is packed with awesome seminars and cocktail-centric events. Hopefully by now you’ve had a chance to visit their website and really dig into the schedule, choosing a session or two to attend. I know I’m planning to try to get to as many as possible!

At the top of my list is the Coffee & Cocktails seminar. You see, I’m a little obsessed with coffee cocktails, and any time I see one on a menu, I immediately order it. At this seminar, Steadfast Coffee will be giving a lesson on the art of coffee and then Nashville bartenders will offer their cocktails featuring sparkling coffee soda. Oh, and a light brunch with biscuits will be provided by chef Brandon Frohne, who I know from personal experience knows his way around a biscuit.

Of course, there’s also the parties. The many, many, parties!  Kicking things off at the Acme, Bourbon & Bluegrass at Two Rivers Mansion, the Speakeasy Spirits party at The Sutler, wrap up party at William Collier’s…. how to choose?!




I can make one party decision easy for at least one of you, because the organizers of the festival have given me a  pair of tickets to give away for the Bourbon & Bluegrass event! Held on Thursday, April 30th, a single ticket is $75, so you’re looking at a $150 value for this prize. Pretty sweet!
