Generous Helpings May 15 + a giveaway

GenerousHelpingsThere are a lot of great tasting events held in Nashville every year, but one of my very favorites is Generous Helpings. Not only because it benefits the Second Harvest Food Bank of Middle Tennessee’s Middle Tennessee’s Table (their prepared and perishable food rescue program), but also because it always features food from the best restaurants, caterers and food trucks in the area. And for a really great price. For just $50 (in advance; $60 at the door, if available), you get samples of appetizers, entrees and desserts plus wine and beer. All you can eat and drink, folks. This year, the event will be held at 6 p.m., Thursday, May 15 in the Market House at The Nashville Farmers Market. You can purchase tickets online in advance here.

Participating restaurants this year include:
312 Pizza Company
55 South
Amerigo Italian Restaurant
B&C BBQ
Chago’s Cantina
Commerce Street Grill/Renaissance Nashville Hotel
Cork & Cow
Etch
Fido
