    By Ashley Dugger | January 28, 2016

      Like a lot of you, we image, we were really bummed to hear about the impending closure of beloved venue/restaurant The Stone Fox in The Nations.

    Lightning 100’s Chocolate Affair gives Nashville access to a glut of sweet stuff

    By Ashley Dugger | January 12, 2016

      One thing Nashville has no shortage of: fantastic beer-tasting festivals (we’ve nodded toward a few of them, and barely scratched the surface). Less prevalent but no less appreciated: chocolate tasting festivals. Or, we should probably say festival, since the only one we know about at the moment is Lightning 100’s Chocolate Affair, coming up... Read More

    We work in Nashville more than anywhere else, but it’s certainly not the only part of Middle Tennessee that intrigues and excites us — there are beautiful homes and charming communities from Sumner to Williamson County and well beyond, and we fall in love with farther-flung listings on a nearly daily basis.
