Lots of fun activities for you all. I say "you all" because I won't be around to attend any of these (bummer) but you should anyway!

Vivek's Epicurean Adventures Supper Club
Yes, I know I talk about this supper club a lot, but it's something that bears repeating. Just go. Trust me, and go. You get great, freshly cooked food and wonderful cocktails and pairings and you get to have a great experience while at it. It's no ordinary supper club. If you want to know how my past experiences were, go here and here.

Otaku South Ramen Dinner
This event and the 7 Jeans event are two of the ones that pain me to miss. Not that I can complain, I'll probably be blissfully getting my own dosage of delicious ramen while back home but I've been yearning to taste some of Otaku South's bowls.
The Pop-up dinner will be held at the newly renovated 12th South Taproom. Purchase your tickets here and do it NOW because I know many have already done so and you don't want to miss this. She also offers vegetarian ramen options so be sure to specify that when you make your reservation. Kids are welcome (time to start your children on some diversity and good food!), the taproom will have their usual selection of beer/wine but Otaku South ramen chef Sarah Gavigan recommends saki or beer!
Hopefully, this is the first of many Ramen pop-ups that will occur. If you do attend, I would really love to know what you think. For many people in Nashville, this will be the first time tasting real ramen. My advice is to eat EVERYTHING in your bowl. Drink the soup while it's hot, and notice how the flavors change when it cools a little and when you get to the very bottom of your bowl. Don't be shy to slurp your noodles so grab a bunch with your chopsticks, get a mouthful and slurp. It's not rude, it's totally allowed.
Have a great rest of September, I'll see you all when it's actually Fall.
