It's such a blast to visit a favorite restaurant for breakfast, lunch or dinner and know that a generous chunk of the proceeds goes to Nashville CARES. (The donation is at least 30 percent and up to 100 percent.) It's also fun to use this terrific fundraiser as an excuse to try out someplace new.
I've got my breakfast pick lined up, and dinner will be secured soon. If there's a particular place you want to visit, you should try to get reservations ASAP. Of course, some places will be available for walk-ins, too, so don't give up if your first choices are booked.
