Dining Out Downtown This Weekend

There’s a great event going on downtown this weekend that every Nashville foodie should be aware of: the Nissan Titan Taste of Music City. It’s taking place on Saturday the 23rd on the Gateway (Vietnam Veterans) bridge. As the website points out, “all samples, including food and beverages – wine, water, specialty teas, and beer from our local and national microbreweries – are included in the price of admission. In addition, you will enjoy live jazz music from local musicians.” Just as importantly, 15% of net ticket sales benefit Second Harvest Food Bank of Middle Tennessee. Although I would like to see more local restaurants on the roster – for some reason, the lineup is a little heavy on chains – it still sounds like a perfect evening to me. If I wasn’t going to be out of town this weekend, I would definitely be there. Hopefully some of you will be able to make it!

    I went last year. It was a pretty awesome deal.

    I always think about doing this, but I am such a cheapskate.

    Is this event competing directly then with the flugtag on riverfront?

    Can anyone (Sam) recall whether there was much in the way of vegetarian options there last year? I’d like to go, but it would be a lot of money to spend on not much return if there’s nothing or little for me to eat.

    Answering my own question, in case any other veggies are out there wondering: I emailed a contact for the festival and got back the following response:

    Some of the restaurants are offering alternative samples (non-meat dishes). Some of the food that will be provided include: Fresh Mozzarella & Tomato Salads, Variety of Cheeses, Dips, and Spreads, and Various Desserts.
