Wine & Swine Nashville 2013

Wine & Swine Nashville 2013

On Friday July 19th, 2013 from 7-11pm, The Wine & Swine event (5th Annual) was held downtown Nashville to raise money for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. Held at the brand new Bridge Building with a unique view of the downtown Nashville Skyline and Cumberland River, event goers enjoyed live entertainment, food donated by some great Nashville restaurants along with Wine and Spirits donated by Midtown Wine & Spirits!

This evening turned out perfectly for this event and it seems that everyone in attendance enjoyed themselves and especially supporting such a great organization, The Tennessee Chapter of The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation

Check out my pictures below from this wonderful event!

Fresh, Homemade Cookies donated by Jake's Bakes

These cookies are delicious and I even met Jake of Jake's Bakes as he was dropping of the cookies for the event!

The little mini donuts that I love so much from Dunkin' Donuts were also donated for the event!

There was a silent auction with everything from footballs signs by NFL Players to.......

Prizes from Tennessee's own, Arrington Vineyards...........

...... A Mexican getaway!

.......And a Kindle Fire HD!

One of my favorite wines, Rosa Regale! I received this as a gift for speaking on a Professional Panel about a year ago and fell in LOVE with it!

Zumi Sushi provided some of their awesome Sushi!

I just love the sushi from Zumi Sushi! I've featured them here on the blog before in this post (click HERE!)

Cute decor!

Great views of the Downtown Nashville Skyline from the Bridge Building!

The Wine Selection was A-MA-ZING....As I'm sure you would expect at a Wine & Swine event :-)

Nashville's own, Belle Meade Bourbon

The Southern was on hand to dish up the Dominican Pork ( One of my favorites from The Southern!) I've enjoyed it a couple of times in the past, including in this blog post of my trip to The Southern!

Dominican Pork with Caribbean Spiced Braised Pork topped with Mango Pico

Nashville's own Blackstone Brewing Company was also on hand for Beer Tastings

I just can not get enough of this view of the Nashville Skyline!

The Local Taco was providing great beef and pork tacos....Tasty!

Of course, with all that beer, wine and great food being handed out, folks needed some good ole' water to stay hydrated. Hapi Drinks is the 1st every producer of Xylitol infused beverages in the US.

Music from a Live Band kept event goers dancin' all evening!

The Bridge Building is so close to the Tennessee Titans Stadium that you can throw a football right into the stadium. (Well.....kinda! I certainly don't have an arm for that so I'll leave that to the Tennessee Titans Quarterbacks! LOL)

Blue Moon Brewing Company was on hand to serve up their finest!

I was told that this bottle of wine is popular.....I wonder why?!? LOL

Edley's BBQ was delighting attendees with tasty pulled pork sandwiches!

I decided to be a little creative when taking this picture!! You like????

The Bridge Building was PACKED with people supporting the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation - TN Chapter!

Event goers having a great time!
