If you're not hungry right now you need to be by the time these food events come around. Here are three events you won't want to miss. Hope to see you at some, if not all of them!
Thursday Night Food Fight
Give mom (or dad) a break, pack up the kids and head to McConnell House for dinner this Thursday! It's a food truck food fight and you get to pick a winner. From gourmet comfort food to delicious, top-notch barbecue to homemade biscuits made with love, Thursday night has never looked better. This free event will also have beer and wine for purchase so make sure you have a designated driver handy! And don't worry, there won't be any food being thrown. Not that I know of anyway!

Dining Lot Street Food Festival
It's the kick off of an annual food truck event held by Wanderland Urban Food Park. This is a great opportunity for you to get food from more than 20 food trucks and to pick your favorite to win the People's Choice Award. A portion of the proceeds from ticket sales ($5 per person) will go to benefit Hands on Nashville's Urban Agriculture Program so, in a way, you're eating fine food so others can also eat well! Bring cash, just in case. Learned my lesson the hard way the last time I went to a food truck and was overconfident that they'd accept credit cards. So have both handy!
It's in Centennial Park, so be sure to pack a camping chair or something unless you're ok with sitting on the grass. Dress comfortably, wear your roomy pants because there's going to be a lot of good food and sweets. For participating trucks, visit the Dining Lot's site. Tip: The yellow menu listing up at the top of the page gives you a pull-down menu. Use that as well.
Vivek's Epicurean Adventures Supper Club
The Husband and I had missed the last two supper clubs and when Vivek told me what was in store for this one, I couldn't stay away - a whole lamb, butchered and cooked by Vivek and Jeremy Barlow (Tayst and Sloco)? BRING IT. If you're not into the lamb thing but aren't against other people eating animals and still want in, there are also vegetarian and vegan options available! Personally, I'm kind of scare of the Offal course. Sure, I'm Asian, I'll eat chicken feet and jelly fish but there's something about the flavor of intestines I just can't get into. But in the interest of adventure, I will try it.
If you can't make it to this one, the next Epicurean Adventures Supper Club will be on July 21st. You can follow Vivek's blog for announcements on that one and also to see what he's been up to, food adventures wise!
