How Hot Chicken Really Happened

Nashville What

For once and for now, we’re here to help settle the history of Nashville Hot Chicken. Here’s one recent take from the New Yorkerabout the first family of Nashville Hot Chicken (which you’ll soon be able to enjoy downtown). A little while back, Nashville native Rachel Martin documented How Hot Chicken Really Happened (Photo by Joe Buglewicz) in the Bitter Southerner. Next step: send a Hot Chicken Gift Batch to a friend who can handle the heat.

Food & Drink What

Martin’s has made all of our midtown BBQ dreams come true. If you don’t want to get caught in line with Belmont kids, overpay for parking downtown, or live in Nolensville or Mt. Juliet, you can now hit the old Logan’s (which is looking super saucy now) on Elliston starting yesterday

Maker What

It’s card season (Easter, Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, teacher appreciation, graduations, sorry I forgot your birthday) and thankfully Lisa Sarmento and her delightfully cheeky line of stationery can get your recipients laughing and happy to know you. Check out her full interview.

Event What

The Nashville Elvis Festival gyrates into the Franklin Theatre this weekend. Put on your blue suede shoes and watch 20 of the top Elvis tribute artists from around the world compete in the Ultimate Elvis Tribute Artist Contest. Stick around on Sunday for a special bonus: John Schneider in concert (John Schneider/Elvis trivia: Schneider's very first hit was 1981’s cover of Elvis Presley’s “It’s Now Or Never,” which reached #4 on the Billboard Country chart. It remains the top charting Elvis cover of all time in any genre to date.).

Bonus What

As the weather warms, we found the perfect mobile party spot.
