No Foolin’ – a Fun Way to Support the Ronald McDonald House

This fun event features food from some of Nashville’s eateries, live jazz performed by Nashville’s talented Denny Jiosa, an outstanding selection of silent auction items, and a selection of wine, beer and spirits tastings skillfully curated by Ed Fryer of Village Wines & Spirits in Hillsboro Village.

Some of the very best happenings in Nashville are those that benefit schools, philanthropic organizations or charities. One of my personal favorite happenings is scheduled for this Friday, April 1.

For years, we have supported the Ronald McDonald House in Nashville by attending the d’Vine Selections wine tasting and silent auction in November. The event has had a bit of a makeover recently – there was no d’Vine Selections event in November 2015. Instead, the new-and-improved event will cater to current trends by featuring craft beers and spirits along with fine wines at The Triple Sip.

The Triple Sip will be held at the Nashville Farmers’ Market starting at 6pm. Silent Auction bidding usually ends a little before the 9pm end time. Lest you find that sipping wine bring out the competitive bidder in you, you can feel good that proceeds from the night’s event support a place of comfort for families with critically ill children. Tickets are available on the Ronald McDonald House Nashville website ($60 in advance) or at the door ($70). Each ticket includes an etched commemorative tasting glass.

Sounds Like Fun - Nashville is a labor of love - my love for Music City, Middle Tennessee, and experiencing the best that our area has to offer. In recent years, I've developed an informal following among my friends and professional colleagues. People ask me what I've got planned for an upcoming weekend – or seek advice about good activities for showing visiting friends or relatives around the Nashville/Middle Tennessee area. Even though there are other sites with event calendars, I think followers of my blog can expect some extra insight into goings-on that would suit ‘most anyone seeking to experience the diversity of fun and interesting things to do around town. I'm always on the look-out for good places to walk my dog. Maggie is a 10-year-old mixed breed shelter dog who still becomes comically ecstatic when she sees me pick up a leash. She's my inspiration to start a page featuring great dog walks around Nashville.
