A little more than a year after Hurricane Irma tore through Florida, Nashville restaurants are returning to business
A lot has changed in the past year for Nashville restaurants, but some are still opening and some are returning.
The city is hosting a major food festival on the eve of Memorial Day weekend, and the city is bringing back some familiar names to restaurants.
The festival will feature three restaurants, two of which are returning, along with a new, smaller venue.
The biggest difference this year is that all the venues are now owned by the city.
The City of Nashville, the city’s government, is the exclusive owner of the events and activities that will be held there.
There will be a music festival and a food festival.
It’s an interesting partnership that’s not the same as when the City of Atlanta bought the Georgia Dome in 2016.
There’s also a new event called The Tennessee State Fairgrounds and, with that, there will be an expanded food truck lineup.
We also have an outdoor beer garden, and we’re partnering with the city to have a live music festival at the same time.
That’s been the plan for awhile.
And there will also be a new theme park at the Nashville Convention Center, which is a huge deal.
It opens in 2019.
It will be called The Nashville Zoo.
We’re excited about that.
The food festival will also return to Nashville’s iconic restaurant scene, but this time the city has partnered with Nashville chef Daniel Katz.
Katz has been a chef in the city since 2006.
It was Katz who brought me to the city when I was a student.
Katz is also the founder and CEO of the popular New Orleans-based eatery Katz’s.
He is also a food critic and a contributing writer at the New York Times Magazine.
He’s a friend and a colleague to a lot of people here.
We had a great time with him at his restaurant in the downtown area, and now we’re bringing him back to the state fairgrounds to host the event and also to give back to those that were impacted by the storm.
The second event is an indoor water park, which we’ve also expanded into.
It takes place on the National Park Service property.
It is a big deal to have an event on National Park Land.
And the National Parks Service is hosting this outdoor water park.
It also is a major part of the Nashville community, as you can imagine, and they’re very grateful that we’re able to support them in doing that.
We are very grateful.
The third event is a concert series that is held at the Great Nashville Festival.
It brings together some of the artists who have been on the national stage, some of our best music acts and we’ve invited the world to come to this great event and hear what they’re all about.
And this event is being held at a state park.
And so there are a lot more artists here, and it’s going to be a really fun concert series.
We have a few of them on the bill and we are really excited to bring some of those names back.
It really is an opportunity to do a big event.
We are going to have all the usual venues that you see in a lot on the road, with the exception of the Tennessee State Capitol, which has been moved.
We will be working with the state to move the event there.
We also have the Great Tennessee Festival, which happens every year.
And we’re going to bring it back this year.
So it’s a huge event.
We’ll be in the area, we’ll be doing the event, and there will probably be some other food and beverage vendors, which are great.
The theme park will also expand.
It’ll be called Great Tennessee in 2019, and this is going to expand to the National Mall.
There are some really big events happening on the mall.
We’ve already got the Tennessee Stampede, which will be happening this year, and then we’re also working on the Great America and Great Tennessee Stamps, which I think will be going on the first weekend of the festival.
And that will expand to a number of parks in the Metro area.
We’ve also partnered with the Great Atlanta Festival, where they’re going into their own state park, the Tennessee Valley.
It has some of Tennessee’s best outdoor festivals, which have really been around for decades.
And it’s really important to us that we bring these events back here.
And they’re great.
They’re an amazing thing to do, and I think they’re really important for our state.
We have a number new food trucks in the works.
We just recently had a few new food truck owners in town, and as we go through the year, we’re doing food truck events with some of these guys that we already have in town.
So we’ll have a couple of trucks coming back to Nashville this year to do events, so we have a good mix of food trucks, as well as other restaurants and
