Root 53 Foundation Spring Friendraiser

Thursday, March 27th, 2014
5 – 8 pm

910 Division St
Nashville, TN 37203

Cost: $20/person  (presale price)

If you can’t make the Yazoo dinner on Tuesday, on Thursday you’ve got another chance to load up on some Yazoo and more fine street food, this time from Riffs. This spring “friendraiser” is a benefit for Tennessee Titans’ linebacker Moise Fokou’s charitable organization, Root53, which focuses on offering healthy living workshops for youth in underserved communities.

So what can you expect at the friendraiser? Well, for the $20 entry fee, you get a pint of Yazoo & delicious appetizers from Riffs Catering, you get to meet & hang with Moise himself, and you get to learn more about the organization. Last but not least, you get to leave feeling good knowing that 100% of your ticket price goes to this awesome non-profit!

Note: If you reserve your ticket before March 24th, the cost is $20, after that, it goes up to $25.


Pop Up, Schmop Up

Namaste Ya’ll

Saturday, March 29th, 2014
6 – 8 pm

Nashville Farmers Market
910 Division St
Nashville, TN 37203

Cost: $20/person

Reservations are encouraged:


And the last event of the week will be Biscuit Love’s first pop up in their “Pop Up, Schmop Up” series at the NFM Grow Local Kitchen.

Biscuit Love owners Karl and Sarah are collaborating with high school student Charlie Hilly to serve a meat & three style menu that represents his own food truck concept. How did this come to be? Well, Charlie met Sarah at a recent career fair and proceeded to tell her all about his plans for owning his own food truck one day. Sarah was so impressed by him that she and Karl continued the conversation, ultimately coming up with the idea for this event – Namaste Y’all, a fusion of Indian and Southern cuisine.

On the menu:

Fried Chicken Tikka Masala over Beaverdam Creek Farm Grits

Catfish Curry

Collard Saag Paneer with housemade Cruze Buttermilk Cheese

Roasted Winter Vegetables with Vadouvan

Indian Banana Pudding

Mango Mint Sweet Tea


Tickets will be available at the door for $20 per person, with proceeds benefiting The Nashville Food Project. BUT….. you know how much I love you, so I’ve got a set of two tickets to give away to one lucky reader before then!
