I recently teamed up with the Nashville Guide to share this adorable t-shirt with you. It is no secret that I love my city an abnormal amount. So, it should come as no surprise that I am always happy to rep some Nashville gear. This particular t-shit carries a little more value than just the name of my city. When you purchase this t-shirt, a portion of the proceeds go to The Little Pantry That Could – a Nashville based organization that serves our communities in need. They provide a unique shopping experience that allows a diverse crowd of people to obtain food for their families. Of course, there is nothing more powerful than people helping people, especially right in our own backyard. God calls us to “be kind to one another” (Ephesians 4:32), and what better way to do that than by serving those in need. One way you can help is by going to volunteer, but you can also spend some time shopping The Nashville Guide’s online store. As an added bonus, use the code “TADLOVE” for 15% off your order!
Nashville is going to be buzzing this weekend with the CMA Fest in town. While Adam and I don’t always stick around for the excitement, I love what our town becomes over these next couple of days. I am excited for my city – excited for all the people who are coming to experience it. And because of the excitement with CMA Fest, this seemed like the perfect opportunity to highlight a few of my favorite places to eat in town:
Proper Bagel – now that it’s summer, I go twice a week (at least)! Get the “New Yorker” on an everything bagel.
Fenwicks 300 – located on 8th Avenue in the Melrose area. The Bacon & Egg Fried Rice is the most amazing meal ever. Be sure to schedule in a nap for after this meal.
Fido – the turkey and brie sandwich... Need I say more?
Franklin Juice Co. – I could eat their “Bom Bom” bowl for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Seriously, y’all. It’s so good.
Two Ten Jack – This might just be our favorite dinner spot in town. The best ramen. Get the Tori Paitan Shoyu, and add an extra egg.
Rosepepper – Great atmosphere, and everything is good. You can’t go wrong here.
The Diner – New spot downtown. Awesome brunch menu, but even better atmosphere with 6 levels of different dining experiences.
Butchertown Hall – In love with their queso dip.
Moto – Cacio e Pepe pasta.
Peter’s Sushi – Located in Brentwood, just outside of Nashville. The best sushi in town and for a reasonable price.
For those of you heading out into the madness of CMA Fest, I hope you have a safe and happy time. Be sure to visit the the Chevy Park Stage at 11:50am and Ascend Amphitheatre at 7pm on Saturday to see Cale Dodds perform.
Oh, and GO PREDS!
