Taste of Nashville Giveaway!

Let’s start November off with a bang, whaddya say?  I’ve got a giveaway!  (If you’re not local to Nashville, or at least able to drive in, you won’t be interested in this giveaway.  My apologies.)

All throughout the year I see all my different foodie friends attending food & drink events.  The vast majority of these events tend to occur on one of the two nights of the week I work nights.  I’m always a little bummed and jealous to miss out on all the fun.  Recently I was contacted by the organizer of Taste of Nashville 2011, brought to you by the Phoenix Club about doing a giveaway.  As soon as I discovered their event is on a Friday night, I immediately agreed!  After all, it would have been a huge bummer to give away tickets to an event I couldn’t even attend!  The event will be held at the Cannery Ballroom on Friday, November 18th at 7pm.

Taste of Nashville is a fun night of food & drinks celebrating the finest Nashville has to offer!  Just listen to the list of restaurants & food: The Standard, Whiskey Kitchen, Virago, TavernThe Patterson House, Merchants, Paradise Park, Watermark, Melrose Neighborhood Pub, Noshville, 1808 Grille, Puckett’s Grocery, Sperry’s Cool Springs, Sam’s Sports Bar, The Local Taco, Nashville City Club, Sambuca, Miel Restaurant, Arnold’s Country Kitchen, Corner Pub Green Hills, Frothy Monkey, Mere Bulle’s, Chappy’s, Maggie Moo’s, Bongo Java, Pied Piper Eatery, Steve’s Restaurant, Hit and Miss Ice Cream, Olive & Sinclair Chocolate, The Grilled Cheeserie, Bosco’s, Zumi Sushi.  Whew!  Some of these are tried & true places I love, and some are spots I’ve yet to make it out to.  I’m so excited to eat the night away!


And don’t forget about drinks, Taste of Nashville has got you covered there too, with the help of Pritchard’s Distillery, Collier & McKeel Whiskey, and Jackalope Brewery.

Lest you think this is just a frivolous event, I want to tell you that 100% of the proceeds benefits the Boys & Girls Clubs of Middle Tennessee.  Last year, over $16,000 was raised!  Tickets are $50 in advance, $60 at the door (unless they sell out!), and $75 for VIP (includes some swag & exclusive food!).  If you don’t win, here’s where you can go to purchase your tickets.

Alright, so you probably want to know what you need to do to win.  First, you MUST be 21 years of age or older.  And second, you must be local to the Nashville area, or at least willing to drive in.  (Hello to all my Bowling Green friends!  This means you.)  This contest will end Wednesday, November 9th at midnight CST.  I’ll announce the winner Thursday morning, and contact them via email and/or twitter.  The winner will have 48 hours to respond, and in the event they do not, I will choose another winner.

***CONTEST CLOSED***

Winner was chosen using Random.org.  #53 Paz

Congrats!!  See you there!

    I would absolutely love to attend this@ I’m a native Nashvillian and have never been able to go before. I’d love to try more from the Patterson House, they’re always yummy. I haven’t been to several of these like Puckett’s, Noshville, 1808 and Jackalope.
