Summer Fundraiser for Hands On Nashville!

We are so excited to announce our next big event: a summer beer dinner to raise funds for the Hands On Nashville Urban Farm. The four-course dinner will highlight seasonal produce from the farm and feature beer generously donated by Jackalope Brewery and other local brewers. The evening will be a collaborative effort, with appetizer from Tony, a pasta course from Tom Lazzaro of Lazzarolli Pasta, a wood fired entrée from Jim Garvin of Crankees Pizza, and dessert by pastry chef Audra Dykes. Beers from Jackalope Brewery and other local brewers will pair with each course. The dinner will take place on Sunday, June 8th at 6:00 pm at POP Nashville (604 Gallatin Ave., Ste 202).

In partnership with Mayor Karl Dean’s Office and the Metropolitan Board of Parks and Recreation, Hands On Nashville’s Urban Farm engages volunteers – primarily young people – in service and learning. This dinner will go towards funding their youth summer camp program, which teaches Davidson county children about nutrition, sustainability, and healthy food choices.

Entry to the event is $50 and includes dinner and beer pairings.

This is our fifth fundraiser for the Hands On Nashville Urban Farm- and we are thrilled to be partnering with some of our favorite people to make it happen. We both look forward to another fun and delicious evening for a great cause.

We hope to see you there!

Celebrating Fall at Hattie B’s with Sycamore and Jackalope Brewing

Hi Friends!

Happy fall, we hope you are enjoying the season as much as we are so far. We have been flying under the radar a bit lately, working hard on our permanent location which will be open in Nashville in 2014. We can’t share that news quite yet, but hang tight. In the meantime, we have another fun pop up for you.

On Sunday, November 24 we are teaming up with Jackalope for the “Barrel Aged Bash.” They are aging some special brews just for us in Corsair whiskey barrels, and we are whipping up some tasty snacks to pair with the beers. Chef Tony will be making two kinds of sausage (perhaps one venison and a kielbasa with kraut?), and his amazing soft pretzels with Jackalope beer cheese.

We’re also keeping things more casual this time, and instead of a sit down dinner, we’re selling entry to the event for $20, and everyone will get tickets that can be redeemed for any beer or food item that you like. Just want to nosh? Use all your tickets for food. Want to get sloppy? Use all your tickets for beer (not that we’d encourage sloppiness but you’re grown-ups). We suggest going 50/50 on food and beer, but it’s your party so you can consume however you like!

Entry purchased in advance is $20 and includes 5 food and drink tickets. Entry at the door is still $20, but only includes 4 tickets, so be smart and buy yours in advance here.

Cheers!

Caroline and Tony
