Revisit E. B. White's classic tale of Charlotte's Web, where Wilbur the runt piglet is saved from becoming his farmer's dinner by a lovable spider named Charlotte. With help from the other barn animals, Wilbur becomes a pig savant instead of a pig savory in this poignant children's story. Charlotte's Web is playing on June 5 at 2 p.m., June 11 at 6:30 p.m., June 19 at 2 p.m., and June 25 at 6:30 p.m.
Being branded “Roseanne Barr meets Jack Black” might be considered a slight to some, but Hick Chick Tours’ guide Christy Eidson wears it as a badge of honor. The standup comedienne keeps her pub crawls, brewery tours, and bus tours light and irreverent with tongue-in-cheek asides. But since she’s a Tennessee native, there’s are also plenty of interesting historical information woven into her sassy narratives.
More than 25 years ago, chef GianCarlo Agnoletti founded a restaurant near Rimini, Italy, that took its inspiration from the nearby Adriatic Sea. Mussels, insalata di mare, and fresh-caught fish fueled GianCarlo's passion for northern Italian cuisine—until fate and circumstance carried him to Nashville.
On the arch-lined patio of his current culinary endeavor, Sole Mio, it's not hard to imagine oneself on a quaint Italian street. Aromas of handmade pasta and fresh sauces—all made to order—sweep over al fresco diners. Chefs design and cook a rotation selection of dishes depending on the in-season ingredients.
The best things come in pairs—particularly in the realms of poker, romance, dueling banjos, conjoined twins, and today's deal. For $15, you get $30 worth of cuisine and any accompanying fermented grape juice at the Wine Loft in The Gulch. The restaurant gets pretty busy, so be sure to call ahead and make reservations.
Boasting delicious eats, great acoustics, and live shows, The Listening Room is the perfect place to take in an undiscovered musical gem amid sips and sups. The eclectic menu features standard bar fare, Southwestern-style sustenance, and down-home comfort food in a lively array of apps, sandwiches, burgers, quesadillas, desserts, and more. The Cajun Turkey Sub packs heat with bayou-inspired seasoning, pepper jack, and chipotle mayo ($6.95), whereas the massive baked-potato list allows tuber-junkies to dress 2-pound spuds in elegant or silly food clothes, such as a dapper hot-dog-and-sauerkraut ensemble ($6.95), a chicken-parmesan pantsuit ($7.95), or a beautifully nude just potato ($3.95). Through The Listening Room's partnership with Nashville Muse, $0.25 of taco-chili purchases help support local songwriting or music-related charities, so chomp charitably on the Nashville Muse Taco Chili on its own ($4.95), or on a 6-ounce burger ($8.45).
