When the weekly seafood shipment arrives from the Gulf Coast, Batter'd & Fried owner Matt Charette says his team turns into "shucking fools," as they serve up two-for-one oysters all day long. A half-price half-dozen clocks in at $8.99, and a full 12 costs $13.99. 1008 Woodland St.
The Family Wash Pie and a Pint Night
This pioneering gastropub-music venue in East Nashville made a quick name for itself with an uncommonly good British-style shepherd's pie. At first no one could believe Family Wash's Lilliputian kitchen could turn out such a hale and hearty meal as the pan of stewed lamb and beef under a cloud of mashed potatoes and bruleed cheddar. Then they learned about the deal: 1 pie + 1 pint = $10. Consider that the pie arrives in a tin that's perfect for transporting leftovers, and you've got your Wednesday night dinner taken care of too. 2038 Greenwood Ave.
Ask a parent, and they'll say two-for-Tuesday is the hottest family night in town. Ask a beautiful young thing, and you'll hear two-for-Tuesday is the best bar scene going.
