Eastside izakaya Two Ten Jack will host a fundraiser on Monday for the hourly employees affected by the fire at Husk.
Chef and partner Jessica Benefield tells Bites that they wanted to help out the servers and bartenders who will lose shifts until the restaurant reopens.

“Being out of work unexpectedly for a week can really screw your life up,” Benefield says. “They have a very beloved staff and I would hope someone would help my staff get through something like that.”

The fire early Thursday morning was contained to the electrical room, the upstairs dish room, and part of the roof. David Howard, president of Neighborhood Dining Group, says that Husk hopes to reopen soon. “We should have a better idea of a timeline for reopening in the coming days. We will not be closed long and want our valued staff to be able to work again quickly,” he wrote in a press release.

Two Ten Jack will donate five percent of its Monday sales to Husk employees. Servers will also donate a portion of their tips, as well as collect donations. Additionally, the restaurant will give out a $10 gift card for every $20 someone donates.

“We’re like one giant family in the restaurant business,” Benefield says. “It’s our responsibility to look out for one another.”

EAT GREEN FOR TENNESSEE

September 14th 2016

You can help protect Tennessee farmland, open spaces and other landscapes by simply dining out with friends and family. Eat Green for Tennessee benefits The Land Trust for Tennessee. For the past three years, local restaurants have committed to pledge a percentage of one day’s sales to The Land Trust for Tennessee in support of its work in conserving local farmland and natural landscapes.

The Land Trust’s mission is to protect all of Tennessee’s landscapes so your family will have places to farm, fish, hike, bike, eat locally, relax and breathe deeply forever.

A West Coast Story, Continued…
By David Wild

“Fifty years ago, we started something very big,” says Brian Wilson. “So now we’re celebrating together in a very big way.”
“It’s pretty miraculous that we can start out as a bunch of guys who didn’t know anything about fame or money, or anything like that,” says Mike Love. “All we knew was we liked to sing and make harmonies together. So to have it become part of American musical culture is pretty amazing.” – Read the rest of the Bio…..

 

 

JUDAH AND THE LION

Judah & the Lion are a folk-pop trio based in Nashville, Tennessee. Singer/guitarist Judah Akers met mandolinist Brian Macdonald and banjo player Nate Zuercher through mutual friends and the three began playing together in late 2011. Initially aligning themselves with the Christian music scene, their debut EP, First Fruits, was a worship-themed record that blended expansive folk and bluegrass with rich, old-timey harmonies. A year later, they returned with the more secular-oriented and pop-leaning…

FIVE POINTS PIZZA

Sep 8, 2016 8 AM
Five Points Pizza has been named “Best Pizza in Nashville,” by you, the Scene’s readers every year that they have been in operation since opening in 2011. And I don’t have any inside info, but I wouldn’t bet against them this year either.

They know you love them, so they want to return some of that affection in the form of their third annual Free Slice Night on Tuesday, Sept. 13 from 5 to 7 p.m. They’ll be serving up free slices of their cheese and pepperoni pizzas from their walk-up window, but don’t be greedy. It’s one slice per patron.

Google Fiber goes live in Nashville 4-27-16

Read more of the Story at The Nashville Business Journal

The wait for Google Fiber is officially over — at least for a handful of Nashville customers.

The gigabit internet service that first turned its eyes toward Nashville back in early 2014 and confirmed its intention to launch here in January 2015 will start serving customers in four apartment and condo buildings today, also the grand opening of Google’s “Fiber Space,” its retail hub in the Gulch.

Google’s selection of Nashville as a fiber city (now the fifth to get hooked up to the network) has long been seen as validation of the city’s reputation as a growing tech hub, as well as both a technical and competitive advantage to further grow that sector and others. Young, forward-thinking workers are attracted to the fast speeds of a “gig,” and the “Google” name adds even more cool cachet.

Starting today, residents of the Icon in the Gulch (where the Fiber Space is located), the Element Music Row, the Rhythm at Music Row and the Bristol on Broadway can pick up a self-installation kit at the Fiber Space and start surfing at speeds nearly 100 times faster than standard American internet speeds right away (assuming they select a gig-only, no TV plan). Another 200 buildings or so are also on track to get Google Fiber, and the company has launched a new “apartment finder” tool Nashvillians can use to see if their building is on the list.

“Our intent is over the next several weeks and months to bring more buildings online,” said Martha Ivester, Google Fiber’s Nashville community manager. But, she continued, “It’s not as simple as ‘Let’s build it and let’s flick a switch.’ We’re going to just keep adding buildings and neighborhoods as we’re able.”

The construction of the network has certainly not been as simple as flicking a switch. It’s been nearly a year since the company began construction of the fiber network, and Ivester said there’s no clear timeline for when single-family homes and a broader pool of businesses (those in buildings with residential hookups will get access) will be able to connect.

Seeing how happy The Color Run has made people has been tremendously rewarding for us. It is an event for all fitness levels, ages and backgrounds.

Individuality

Color Runners vary in demographics and reasons for running. With no winners or official times, The Color Run caters to everyone from the first time runners to seasoned athletes. Some Color Runners participate as a celebration and capstone of their healthy living accomplishments, while others participate for reasons unique to them. What are you running for?

Giving Back

As a for-profit event management company, we love the opportunity we have to partner with charities to help shine a light on their amazing work within society and highlight the causes they stand for. We have raised donations for more than 80 local and national charities since 2012. To date, The Color Run has donated more than $4 million to charity.
