Upcoming Nashville Food Events

There are a couple of upcoming food events that I would like to share with you! They are all happening this week so be sure to check out the info included below if you are looking for some fun Music City events to enjoy!

Our Kids Soup Sunday

     Our Kids will host 50 of Nashville’s finest restaurants and more than 1,500 patrons at the
21st Annual Soup Sunday on Feb. 23, 2014, from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. at LP Field Club Level West. 

Come taste Nashville’s best soup and cast your vote for your favorite!

The Ford Our Kids Soup Sunday presented by US Foods benefits Our Kids, a nonprofit organization that provides medical evaluations and crisis counseling for children and families struggling with child sexual abuse.
Last year’s winners – Urban Grub, Fleet Street Pub and Vanderbilt University Dining – will be back to defend their titles, and we’ll also have longtime favorites like Sunset Gril, Antonios’, and Sperry’s. New hotspots like Lockeland Table, Porter Road Butcher and The Bridge Building catering wil also offer their best soups to hungry tasters.

Celebrity judges include two actors from ABC’s hit show Nashville – Eric Close (“Teddy Conrad”) and Charles Esten (“Deacon Claybourne”) – as well as Musician Joe Don Rooney of Rascal Flatts, Vanderbilt Football Head Coach Derek Mason and Lightning 100 DJ Lt. Dan. Chef judges include Al Anderson of Big Al’s Deli, Ed Butler of US Foods, Nancy Vienneau of Good Food Matters and food writers Kay West, People Magazine, and Nikki Wood, Nashville Scene. George Plaster, Radio Host of 102.5 The Game, will emcee the event.

At $40 per family and $20 per adult when purchased in advance, this affordable event features plentiful entertainment for the kids, such as magicians, balloon artists, and face painters. There is also a silent auction where bidders can win vacation packages, event tickets, gift certificates and more. Discounted tickets may be purchased in advance at until noon, Friday, Feb. 21.

“Soup Sunday is a wonderful event that raises money to help ensure that Our Kids’ clinical staff is on call 24/7 to respond to children and families struggling with child sexual abuse,” says Sue Fort White, Our Kids Executive Director. “This issue affects children all over Middle Tennessee. Being a part of Soup Sunday is a wonderful way to support the help, hope and healing for these children and families.”

Tickets may be purchased online or at the door the day of the event for: $45/family; $25/adult; $8/child or students.

For more information, call Our Kids at (615) 341-4917 or email

The first Soup Sunday was held in 1994 with 25 restaurants participating and 300 guests. Since that time, more than 200 restaurants have served approximately 7,700 gallons of soup to more than 13,000 attendees.

Our Kids mission is to provide expert medical evaluations and crisis counseling for children and families affected by child sexual abuse. Our Kids also conducts research and increases community awareness about child sexual abuse.


Bound’ry Hosts Women for Women Showcase Benefiting Thistle Farms

          On Wednesday, February 19, from 5 to 9 p.m., Bound’ry hosts the Women for Women Showcase. Servers from Bound’ry and South Street will gather for a concert, showcasing singer/songwriter talents. 
       This memorable performance will focus on raising money for one of Nashville's most worthy organizations, Thistle Farms, one of Nashville’s most loved and supported organizations, fostering women. Taking place in the Phoenix Room at Bound’ry, tickets will be $12 and include live performances, complimentary food and drink, and a silent auction.

Thistle Farms is a social enterprise of Nashville’s ever-growing, Magdalene House; a charity created to foster women who have survived lives of prostitution, trafficking, addiction, and life on the streets. At Thistle Farms, the women create natural body care products, by hand. Magdalene House furnishes housing for 30 residents and graduates, and provides outreach services to women still living on the streets. New residents are given a key and are offered the necessary resources to maintain recovery, heal from childhood wounds, become physically healthy and find employment.
