#eyePISSGLITTER | Mouth Adventure | Five Nashville Foodie Hot Spots

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

I want everything. 

I want everything. 

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

The mimosas though. 

The mimosas though. 

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

Tasty fire in my mouth.

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

After The Set. 

After The Set. 

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.

#eyePISSGLITTER | @HeyEryka Tells Us What Made @chancetherapper's Magnificent Coloring Day

IMG_6256.JPG

You can't deny that there are so many new festivals popping up! This year alone has brought millions of people out from January 2016 to now. We've been to Bonnaroo, Coachella, Made In America, Bumbershoot, Burning Man, Life Is Good and more; this time I got with another fellow festival lover, Eryka! She recently attended Chance The Rapper's Magnificent Coloring Day in Chicago, Illinois. I so wanted to go but I attended a festival of love better known as Chris & Melody's wedding!!! (It was so beautiful by the way).

So, since I'm sure I'm not the only one who missed out, Eryka gave us a little bit to hopefully look forward to next year.

  • Chance being Chance and wonderful. It's amazing seeing how far he's come and that he's able to do this for his city
  • A dope ass line up and surprise guests that LITERALLY kept you on your feet
  • Listening to a FULL stadium singing in unison
  • Experiencing it with friends who know when you say you're going to Chicago for Chance they know you'll do it whether or not somebody is with you so they tag along for the ride!

#eyeADVENTURE | That Time I Stepped In Mud In My Jellies At The Nashville Freedom Fest & The Fun Stuff

Nikki two bites and was done. 

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.

#eyeADVENTURE | Las Vegas Is For Grown A$$ Kids

image.jpg

No, really, there's more to do than gamble and eat at the many buffets I learned. I mean I had a feeling there was because more than 603,488 people live there and I'm sure they don't gamble daily, or maybe they do. But going back to Las Vegas I had expectations of fun and it ended up being fun on Fleek!

Besides having the best food, courtesy of Chef JKL; she made fresh Brussel sprout and meatless meat tacos when I first arrived, then we went to Sprout's aka The Club! But let's get jiggy surviving the 115 degrees weather like a real G I went to the pool tanned, attempted to hop the gate to get in the pool (shout out to D), played Heads Up at the Davis Party, it was a very LIT week. Yes, I could have done most of that in Tennessee but not really.

Next, it was adventure time. Waking up on a Saturday morning and hearing, "Yo, you want to drive to LA today," that was a dream come true, because I hadn't been to LA since I left Arizona. We ended up at a rooftop party at OHM in Hollywood celebrating a birthday then Teedra Moses performs! Just imagine if you had never been to a Teedra Moses show and you've been wanting to go, yes that feeling. Then we went to have some Italian food & next ended up at this Hipster strip club. We drove back from, well JKL did, Jamillah didn't even attempt, I tried but I started sleep talking and I knew that wasn't going to work. 

 

But back to LAS VEGAS... 

The Container Park

Yes, that slide. 

Yes, that slide. 

They all fall down. 

They all fall down. 

When you have the coolest friends in the world there's no telling where you will end up. In this case I ended up going down a 33 feet slide screaming at the top of my lungs, playing a life sized Connect Four (& fake winning), watching Doo Wop (That Thing) via Lauryn Hill on a huge outdoor screen and playing with Legos. Nope I didn't go to a regular park for children, but rather an adult park filled with other 21 somethings surrounded by great eats and bars. During the entire time in Las Vegas, besides watching seasons of Shameless and visiting the Seven Magic Mountains; I had the most fun there. 

Fake, but really winning. 

Fake, but really winning. 

At night it was still 100 degrees but a nice dry heat that I could stand. I suggest if you're looking for something to do and want to use all of that good energy or you just feel like having a grown a$$ kid moment, visit The Container Park in Las Vegas, Nevada.
