Tequila and Tupperware for Nashville Grown

Wednesday, March 2, 2016
6:30 pm

Acme Feed & Seed
101 Broadway
Nashville, TN 37201

Cost: $48 – $98

21+ only

I’ve been to exactly two Tupperware parties in my life. One with my mother when I was a small child, and another in young adulthood when I was starting to outfit my first “real” place. I’m pretty certain that neither of those experiences were anything like what’s going to be happening at Acme Feed & Seed this week to benefit Nashville Grown.  Tequila, comedy, drag, trivia, and delicious food — I’d probably own a lot more Tupperware if all Tupperware parties sounded this fun!

Dee W. Ieye is apparently one of the nation’s hottest Tupperware sales ladies, and this will be her first visit to Nashville. I have a feeling Nashville isn’t going to know what hit ’em! Doors open at 6:30 pm and Dee’s show starts at 7:15 pm.

Admission includes tickets redeemable for: tequila, locally-brewed beverages, trivia games and raffle prizes. Food and drink sponsors: Acme Feed & Seed, Herradura, El Jimador, Bud’s Liquor & Wine, Husk, Rolf & Daughters, Sloco, Treehouse, Butchertown Hall, Silo, Wild Cow, Crepe A Diem, Two Goats Garden Food Truck, Wolfe Gourmet Cakes, Le Macaron, Jess Rice and Chef Tony Galzin.

Sprinkles Cupcake Madness

Tuesday, March 15th – Thursday, March 31st, 2016

Sprinkles Cupcakes
2606 12th Avenue South
Nashville, TN 37204

While I’ll admit that I’m not a huge sports fan, I do enjoy basketball and March Madness. But you know what other madness I can really get behind? Any kind of madness involving food! 12South’s Sprinkles Cupcakes is putting together Cupcake Madness, March 15-31, and I’m getting in on the action.

Fans will be asked to decide whether they’re Team Vanilla Milk Chocolate or Team Swirl by voting which new flavor they like best at the bakery and Cupcake ATM on 12 South. The winning cupcake will then receive a permanent spot on the Sprinkles menu. Personally, I think I’m leaning Team Swirl, but I could be swayed… What team are you on? To have your say in the winner, all you have to do is go by the shop or the cupcake ATM and purchase one of these flavors. Each purchase scores that flavor a point!



Tennessee Flavors

Tuesday, March 8, 2016
5:30 – 8:30 pm

Nashville State Community College Main Campus
120 White Bridge Road
Nashville, TN 37209

Cost: $69.24 for Standard ticket or $174.24 for VIP

Over 75 of Nashville’s top restaurants, food and beverage artisans will gather next week at Tennessee Flavors to support the Nashville State Community College Foundation. This will be the 5th year for the event, and it looks as though it’s going to be the best one yet. Not only is the list of participants incredible, but it’s being held in Nashville State Community College’s beautiful new humanities building.

There are standard tasting tickets, or you can get all fancy and sign up for the VIP experience that allows you to arrive 30 minutes before the doors open, and access a private lounge area with additional food and beverage offerings. To purchase tickets, click here.

Before you run off to do that, you might want to try your luck at my giveaway though! That’s right, the generous folks at Tennessee Flavors have been kind enough to offer up two free tickets for one of my readers.
