If you haven’t figured it out by now, I seriously have trouble leaving East Nashville. I just can’t help it that all of my favorite bars and drink specials are east of the Cumberland river! This week I decided to hit up Mad Donna’s on Woodland Street just a few blocks down from 5-points.
Let me begin by saying that this bar does not have bar food, they have REAL food. This gay-friendly bar can cook up a tasty order of nachos and a variety of other foods. However, the money you’ll be saving on drinks will be spent on your meal which will definitely not be cheap. But onto the drink deals. On Tuesday you can enjoy your 2-4-1 well drinks until 10 pm while you give it a go at Drag Queen bingo. I’m not joking, the most fabulous drag queens in Nashville will be shouting out “I-8!” to help you fill your bingo card. What can be better in this life? Not much, kids.
Wednesday nights are 2-4-1’s on your favorite drafts. Thursday nights are wine nights, you’ll get $2 off wine by the glass and $5 off wine by the bottle. I’m not a huge fan of Martinis, but if you are you need to go to Mad Donna’s on Friday for Martini night They have $5 Smirnoff and specialty martinis until 10 pm. On Saturdays there are 2-4-1 mimosas and a make-your-own-bloody-mary bar during brunch (10 am-3 pm). Also on Saturdays from 3pm-10pm indulge in $5 Long Island Iced Teas. On Sundays they still have the 2-4-1 mimosas and the bloody mary bar during brunch, and after brunch they are $5 margaritas from 3pm-10pm. For all you trivia lovers, 8pm sharp in the loft on Sundays is where you need to be!
My only complaint: the drink specials end way too early. The atmosphere is cool and welcoming, and the food is pricey, but delicious. Next week, I’m going to cross the bridge and visit the Gold Rush, so watch for that!
