As the seasons begin to change so do our tastebuds, in this case it was only right to get a nice list started for some must stop spots. This time around, we're taking a trip to the Music City capital, Nashville, Tennessee. With so many new restaurants opening it may seem hard to keep up, but that's why you have EYEPISSGLITTER as your friendly guide. Now don't get sad if you don't see your favorite restaurant yet, believe me there are plenty of categories we have coming up, plus we'll sit directly with the owners to see what's best.
Check out our ver first Mouth Adventure of five Nashville spots you want to check out...NOW!
FIVE DAUGHTERS BAKERY - 12 South
Heard to be on of Nashville’s youngest fresh made to order bakery. This is a family owned bakery where it doesn’t use any GMO, chemical preservatives, hydro oils, or any artificial colors and flavors. It has been the talk in some of my Group Me with young alumni/professionals.
SAINT ANEJO - The Gulch
Nice laid back Mexican Cuisine. Includes top shelf/premium tequila. They have happy hour on select days. Also they have a lovely balcony/patio if you ever want to cool out after a long day of work.
PRINCE'S HOT CHICKEN - Ewing Lane & Murfreesboro Road
The FIRST Nashville Hot chicken joint. You can go to this place for lunch, dinner, or after the club. The one on Ewing Lane stays open until about 1 am. You will not be disappointed. If you are a lover of REAL hot chicken look no further.
CLYDE'S - Church Street
I beat everyone in UNO here.
Newly opened sports bar theme. When I say sports bar I am meaning ping pong tables and other game stations. It is a laid back vibe, not too loud or not too quiet. They have a wonderful food menu. It is jumping during happy hour or on Friday or Saturday nights.
FIVE POINTS PIZZA - 5 Points
Located in the heart of 5 points, here is a pizza place that you must try. Handmade from scratch pizza. It is made to order. SO you will not be disappointed.

Nikki two bites and was done.
To believe it was scorching hot to the point I almost took my shirt off would be an understatement. But so quickly how things change, from my PEACHES Adventure tshirt turning dark green (because I was drenched in sweat) to a monsoon looking situation outside I wondered if the Freedom Fest would still pop off. With a change in time and some poppin’ music it was LIT! The un-FLEEK during the whole thing was stepping in mud, not just, "Oh she stepped in mud she has on sneakers, it's cool." No, I had on jellies and not just once but twice I stepped in the mud. Was it worth the fun I had though, yes.
Always that one dude that carries the snake around. It wasn't Rico though.
Great energy from the crowd, visual artists and music artists, made the Nashville Freedom Festival stand out. Check out a few photos from it. Huge shout to Black City Management for putting on a great event. Check out photos below shot by Compass Creative.
Rico about to fake laugh at my joke that was only funny to me.
Mike Floss & Stan on some Redman Method Man ish.

One of the best on going events happening Nashville that I enjoy to the fullest has to be the Nashville Art Crawl. Taking place every first Saturday of the month, bringing out more than 10,000 people it’s definitely a certified #eyeADVENTURE.
I’ve been blessed to be apart of the Nashville Art Crawl, back in December 2015. I joined one of my favorite artists and good friend, Xavier Payne at Blend Studio, located in the Arcade building.
SPEAKING OF | Mark your calendars for September 17; Payne will be hosting a pop up shop at Blend Studio featuring some new pieces as well.
On this particular art crawl I truly enjoyed myself; so many great people and new works of art had me so into the night. Check out a few pieces here.

"Hey do you want to go to the zoo?" Of course I say yes! Fatima, better known as the future veterinarian and the coolest little sister on the planet (yes, Asia, Kris, Bril,and Lorenzo; I'm claiming her too) made sure I got a little Sahara while back in Phoenix. It was 108 degrees so it was only right we made our way to see the beautiful animals and exquisite cacti.
Besides sweating crazy and thinking about what were were going to eat after, it was a wonderful experience.
Check out a few photos below.

No, really, as we get ready for the next one it's only right you know how it went down at the One-Year Anniversary of The Set. Responsible for curating house party, yet organized dope vibes, The Set has been putting together various themed parties that have made lovers of Hip-Hop really appreciate having a place to let it all out on the dance floor, take cool pictures to capture the moment, enjoy live art, great settings and to just be.
To celebrate one full year of good times, Protect The Culture turned it up a notch and collaborated with my fellow New Yorker, 40oz Van for The Set 40oz Bounce Nashville Edition and it turned out to be something quite special. Not wanting to rub it in your face we minimized the list of good times to the five ehh, six things you missed. Check them out below
And make sure you don't miss the next Set, September 16.
- One of the best performances from Alocodaman I've ever seen (which 40oz Van got on staged and captured it on Snapchat)
- A completely sold out venue of 540 when the capacity calls for 500
- One of the most innovative photobooth designs from @idreaminblueray (2 Life sized, personalized Set 40s)
- Kamiayah's DJ... Ohso.... I mean she's DJ OHSO and a woman of dopeness. Such a great vibe with her was felt
- A true celebration of Nashville's hidden gem... Being in attendance literally made you capture the feeling of what it means to be 2 Live From the Set
Thanks D'llisha for sharing your favorite moments! This was a certified #eyeADVENTURE
