12 South Concert Series

26 Aug

For the past few years 12 South has been hosting its own late-summer concert series, aptly named 12 South Concert Series. You’re probably not going to see any huge bands there, but you’re going to see some local vendors and some cool local bands.

I’ve been once or twice and I’ve always bee really pleased with the bands they choose.

This Saturday is the first concert of the season and will feature performances by Innocent Flannel and Doc Honeypunch with Jacque Faye (as noted by the poster). There will also be appearances by a few food trucks, as it wouldn’t be an event in Nashville without one. You can expect to see Pizza Buds, Moovers and Shakers, and some German food truck that I haven’t seen yet.

The whole shebang gets started at 6pm in Sevier Park. Bring a blanket or a little lawn chair.


Burger Up: A Haven From the Snowy Doom

10 Feb

My mother might not be pleased to hear that I, along with three friends, ventured out into the winter weather last night. But Burger Uptweeted last night that they had an event cancel on them, so they had 200 sliders that needed to be eaten that they would like to bestow upon the fine folks in the 12 South area. For free. Yes, a mere few blocks from my house there was free food from Burger Up to be had.

How could I resist?

Now, the roads were not great, this is a fact, but by the time 6 o’clock rolled around there was virtually no traffic, and this yankee basically learned how to drive in the snow. So I shifted into low gear and at 10 miles per hour we made the surprisingly un-treacherous drive to Burger Up.

We must have been some of the first few people who happened upon the free burgers, because the restaurant was still looking a little bare but the sliders were looking plentiful. We grabbed a table, ordered some drinks, and feasted (not in a greedy gimmie gimmie all that way) upon mini Woodstock and Quinoa burgers.

The place pretty quickly filled up, and the mood was great. Hell, what was there to be upset about? Everyone was getting free food from a mighty fine establishment! The burgers only lasted 33 minutes. That’s 200 burgers in 33 minutes. Gone. That’s 6 burgers eaten a minute.

I just want to give a big thanks to Burger Up. They didn’t have to give anyone that free food, and most restaurants probably would’ve trashed it to be honest. But Burger Up decided to give back to the community that fell in love with their amazing grass-fed beef burgers. Burger Up, I hereby grant you the N4F seal of approval, which doesn’t come with anything fancy, it’s just a written notice of the love the N4F feels for you.

Thanks Burger Up! We’ll see you again soon, without a doubt.


Rumors 12 South 6th Anniversary Celebration

16 Nov

Tomorrow is a big day for one of 12 South’s favorite local restaurants. Rumors 12 South will be celebrating their 6th birthday tomorrow, and, as in typical Nashville fashion, they’re throwing a big ‘ol party.

Apparently there will be food, wine, art, and DJ Patrick Kearney, who will be spending the tunes.

It’s completely free to attend this event, but I’m honestly not sure if there will be free wine or food. I honestly wouldn’t expect it, but I imagine they’ll have specials and discounts, maybe even a wine tasting. It’s a bit of a mystery, but what’s wrong with that? Sometimes the mysterious events are the best (unless it involves the Kings of Leon NOT being the special 9 off 8th at the Mercy Lounge).

So there you go, you have the opportunity to support a great local business on their birthday, and you might even get a little somethin’ somethin’ out of it.

Again, this event will take place at Rumors on 12 South from 6-10pm on November 17th.
