Cool! A drive-in Theater Downtown Nashville

Fast Company Nashville

This immersive theater artist is recreating a massive 1960s drive-in in the middle of Nashville

Drive-in movies may feel like part of a bygone era, but that doesn’t mean you can’t recreate an indoor version of one. All you need is a giant movie screen, 50 classic cars, some full-sized trees, grass, gravel pathways, and a 40,000-square-foot air-supported dome. Those are some of the ingredients going into “August Moon Drive-In,” an immersive entertainment project from producer Michael Counts—who is known for such immersive attractions as “The Walking Dead Experience.” For this one, Counts wants to give visitors the full experience of an American drive-in movie, circa 1965, down to every last detail—including the comfort food and fireflies. He’s enlisted the help of theatrical artists and park designers to create the project in downtown Nashville. It doesn’t open until the second quarter of next year, but we got a look at some early specs.

Thunder on The Cumberland 2017

Thunder on The Cumberland 2017
June 17 – 18 2017
Downtown Nashville

The iconic Thunder on the Cumberland F1 Series Powerboat Championship features some of the fastest boats in the world carving a 3 mile loop on the Cumberland River. A new tradition for Nashville, this three day festival features the summer’s best: ice cold beer, food trucks, family fun, and the southern hospitality you love on Lower Broadway. 

Thunder on the Cumberland 2017

 

The crafts:

Toyota Thunder on the Cumberland features some of the fastest boats in the world.

The Drivers

F1 Powerboats: F1 Powerboats are some of the biggest, most powerful outboard engines in Powerboat Racing. Most of these boats go from 0 to 100 in 6 seconds and can turn on a dime (generating 5 times the force of earth’s gravity when they do!) all while literally flying across the surface of the water on a thin cushion of air..the only part of the boat that’s actually in the water is the propeller!

Tri-Hulls

Tri-Hulls are just old-school awesome. Based on 1970’s era production boats, these small open-cockpit boats with supersized engines thrive in rough water, speeding into and out of turns with amazing agility.

The Course

Drivers will race bridge to bridge in a 3 mile loop between Lower Broadway and Nissan Stadium.

Puckett’s Downtown Nashville

Puckett's 5th and Church Nashville TN

MENU BOARD
Menu Items and Specials

The Puckett’s roots go way back to the 1950s and a little grocery store in the village of Leiper’s Fork, Tenn. Ever since then, Puckett’s has been focused on providing friends new and old with great food and Southern hospitality. When it comes down to it, Puckett’s is a community kitchen, with live pickin’ performances just a few feet from your table. Authentic comfort food—barbecue smoked slow ‘n’ low over cherry wood, the home-cooked sides, even a few upscale dishes is what we aim for you to remember.

The Beginning

Founded by the Puckett family decades ago, the namesake country store served communities in rural Tennessee for years. It was a place to grab the week’s groceries or a fill a tank of gas — but it was also a gathering spot in Leiper’s Fork for many decades.

The Marshalls Buy Puckett’s

Andy Marshall grew up in the grocery business. When he launched his own career in the industry at the age of 26, it led to the entrepreneur owning several Piggly Wiggly stores across the Southeast.

In the mid-1990s, Marshall’s love of food, music and community began to steer him in a different direction. His desire was to serve one small town with just one store, where he could also offer home-cooked family recipes to the community he was serving. So in 1998, he decided to sell all of his stores and purchase a little gem in the heart of Leiper’s Fork. That gem was Puckett’s Grocery.

Grocery Turned Restaurant + Music Venue

In 2002, Andy transformed the grocery into a restaurant and music venue. dining experience and music programs. The menus boasted of both the store and the Marshall’s Tennessee heritage, with Puckett’s own special spin. And though most of our friends swear by the barbecue, Puckett’s really built its name on the live talent and songwriters that began performing on the small stage. It began to not be so unusual for the comfort food to be accompanied with the guy who wrote “The Gambler” — or have Lady Antebellum appear on stage, because that’s happened too.

Downtown Franklin

In 2004, another opportunity was presented to Andy: to expand Puckett’s to his hometown and the beloved community of Historic Downtown Franklin, Tenn. At the heart of Puckett’s is a desire to cultivate community and create an authentic experience for locals and visitors alike — making downtown Franklin the perfect fit.

Downtown Nashville

In 2010, Andy opened the restaurant in downtown Nashville. Significantly larger than the Franklin location, Puckett’s 5th & Church has a bigger stage for musicians, seats up to 150 guests, and provides a large stock of supplies and groceries for downtown dwellers. Today the Nashville restaurant has become a favorite amongst the locals as well as those visiting Music City. The restaurant serves as a sought-after destination for live music, down-home cookin’ and the quintessential Southern experience!

Puckett’s Trolley

Puckett’s launched a food truck eatery — affectionately nicknamed Ms. Trolley Parton by her fans — in 2012, offering made-to-order bites from a renovated and historic mobile venue. All of Ms. Parton’s food comes with the special Puckett’s stamp, though some of her dishes are signature items. Be sure to follow the trolley on Twitter @puckettstrolley!

Puckett’s Boat House

In 2012, Andy landed on another amazing opportunity to open a second restaurant in Franklin, and developed the family’s first seafood concept in the Puckett’s Boat House. The grill and oyster bar menu offers by-the-shore dishes reminiscent of the Gulf coast and the Big Easy, plus Southern staples that draw from the Marshall family’s Mississippi Delta and Memphis roots. The Boat House offers the Puckett’s trademark Southern flare and reputation for a live music venue — both with a Boat House twist. Learn more at puckettsboathouse.com.

Downtown Columbia

In 2013, Andy opened the third Puckett’s location in downtown Columbia, Tenn. The former factory and warehouse building measures more than 26,000 square feet, and includes a second-floor event space that exceeds 8,000 square feet. The concept for a Puckett’s on the city’s Public Square was a project several years in the making, and the three-story interior offers the same home-cooked meals and live entertainment it’s built its name on.

Downtown Chattanooga

In 2014, Andy announced Puckett’s opening on Chattanooga’s Riverfront District, which overlooks the Tennessee Aquarium. With its strong sense of community and personal family memories—and connections—in River City, it was the ideal city for the company’s first expansion outside of Middle Tennessee. After nearly a year rehabilitating the space and working with leaders at Chattanooga’s non-profit economic development organization River City Co. to find the building, the restaurant is the largest location to date. New dishes, including the Honey Bun Bread Pudding featuring the Little Debbie® classic, were added to the menu in honor of Chattanooga.

Nash Trash Tour

Nash Trash Tour: What You Need To Know About The HILARIOUS Nash Trash Tour

The Nash Trash Comedy tour is one of the most fun things to do in Nashville. Once you climb aboard the famous pink bus, no holds barred. If you’re easily offended by bawdy humor, the Jugg Sisters aren’t for you. However, if you can take a joke or two, you need to go online and book your tour today. The video below will give you an idea of what you can expect from the tour. However, I did choose to edit out the minute of off-color comedy in case little ears are around when you press play.

The tour is BYOB, and I highly recommend taking a bottle of water or your drink of choice along. The bus stops at the Country Music Hall of Fame for a restroom break, and Nash Trash guests may buy overpriced drinks, both alcoholic and non-alcoholic, in the lobby of the CMHOF and bring them back on the bus. However, it makes a lot more sense to bring your own. If you forget to pack a drink before you leave your house or hotel, you can always get snacks and drinks inside the Farmers Market before the tour starts.Z Facebook 1

Please, note the big pink bus is NOT a party bus. While you’ll feel like you’re having a party during the tour because it’s interactive and loads of fun, bachelorette parties are not welcome. The Jugg Sisters don’t want THEIR party to get out of hand.

The Nash Trash tour takes you around Nashville, and the Jugg sisters tell stories about people and places in the city. However, the Nash Trash tour is first and foremost a comedy show on wheels. Its primary purpose is to make you laugh until your cheeks hurt. If you want to really see Music City, there are other tours for that.

The Jugg Sisters Original tour books months in advance. It’s a rare occasion that you can book your trip with the sisters without planning a week, if not months, ahead of time. Check their calendar, and make your reservation today.

Now, go ahead, and watch the video. You’ll get a sneak peek of the tour and two reviews immediately following those highlights.

ABOUT THE NASHVILLE FOOD PROJECT

History

It was June 2007 and The Nashville Food Project, then operating as a local arm of the Austin-based nonprofit, Mobile Loaves & Fishes, began reaching out to those experiencing homelessness in our city. With a commissary at St. Bartholomew’s Episcopal Church, our first catering truck began making runs to homeless camps three days a week to deliver sack-lunch meals. By January 2009, Mobile Loaves & Fishes had moved to the campus of Woodmont Christian Church and added a second truck. And when Nashville flooded in May 2010, Mobile Loaves & Fishes was ready to help: in that three week period, our volunteers delivered more than 19,000 meals to displaced residents, Metro Water Service employees, and others working relief and recovery efforts across the city.

But we knew there was still more to be done. We began considering other ways we could impact our city through the shared experience of food. We wanted to do more than just feed hungry people by dropping off handouts a few times a week. We wanted to incorporate nutrition, gardens, fresh produce and community meals. We wanted to be part of more creative solutions to the local problem of food insecurity, using local funds and local volunteers.

After five years with the parent organization, Mobile Loaves & Fishes, Inc., our advisory board made the bold move to establish an independent nonprofit in Nashville. In October 2011, The Nashville Food Project was born. We are proud to say that one hundred percent of the money we receive for our work stays right here in our city.

We are focused on how food can be a tool for building up communities. Our mission is to bring people together to grow, cook and share nourishing food, with the goals of cultivating community and alleviating hunger in our city. We know that one in five people in Nashville lacks access to enough food to sustain a healthy lifestyle. But we also know that more than 40% of all the food in our city gets wasted. Through our work we have discovered that solutions to hunger take much more than simple handouts. Poverty, unemployment, low wages and escalating living costs all contribute to the challenges that the most vulnerable residents of our city face.

The Nashville Food Project is sharing food and supporting communities in variety of ways:

  • Grow – In our Gardens we grow organic food intensively, and share resources with others interested in growing their own food
  • Cook – In our Kitchen, we use recovered, donated and garden-grown food to prepare and cook healthy, hot meals.
  • Share – From our Food Trucks we distribute meals from our kitchen and fresh produce from our gardens to people in need.

We offer you a hearty welcome to come by and volunteer soon!
