All The Booze And Bites You Missed At Music City Food And Wine

The sixth annual Music City Food and Wine Festival came to a close Sunday, September 16th. Those who were lucky enough to score tickets to the sold-out bash had a chance to sample some of the best bites and booze from across the country. The talent roster was an assortment of celebrity chefs, TV personalities, authors and local Nashville culinary masterminds. From book signings, cocktail throwdowns, chef panels, and a concert headlined by Kings of Leon, this weekend was a celebration of all things that make Nashville “Music City.”

Eat Y'all: Connect Dinner At Leiper's Fork Distillery

September is by far one of my favorites months in Nashville. Not only does it signal cooler temperatures, autumnal leaves and the kick-off of SEC football, but there's no shortage of food and wine events. Once you have recovered from the Music City Food and Wine festivities, I hope I see you all at the Eat Y'all Connect Dinner Series hosted at the Leiper's Fork Distillery. 

The Ultimate Dinner Party : Lazy Bear San Francisco

Over the past few years, my best friend and I decided to celebrate our momentous occasions seeking out unique experiences where we could spend time together and do something that we enjoy. We were fortunate to celebrate Christmas in Chicago seeing the Broadway hit musical, Hamilton, and this year we decided to celebrate our birthdays in San Francisco having dinner at Lazy Bear. 

Find Your Fire At SculptHouse

Balancing my passion for food and wine and a realistic daily caloric intake can be somewhat challenging. Who the hell am I kidding, it can be INCREDIBLY difficult. One more than one occasion, I have politely asked the universe for a miracle pill that will make the calories magically disappear. But haven't we all? Luckily, I've always been a person who loves to exercise. Well, maybe love is a strong word, but I do find it therapeutic.

A Beginner's Guide To Napa Valley

I am not afraid to admit I am a self proclaimed oenophile. While my friends were throwing back Jager Bombs and Red Bull Vodkas, I was at my local wine shop asking questions and looking for bottles that intrigued me. Don't let me fool you, I had my fair share of Red Bull, but my taste shifted. 

Fast forward to 2018 and things haven't changed much. My passion for wine is greater than ever and my friends are now sipping on craft beers and Aperol spritzes. 

Torc: A Feast For Your Senses

After spending an entire day tasting in Napa Valley, one can grow weary of wine. I didn't think it was humanly possible, but after visiting several vineyards throughout Napa and Coombsville, this girl needed a cocktail.

This particular trip to Napa was unlike any other. Ordinarily, I have our dinners along with our tastings planned out, but given the fact that I've logged several trips to Napa, I decided to roll the dice and let things happen as they may. Sometimes this is the best way to find out about new restaurants because despite what we think, not everything is on the internet! Ha!
