  • Preview sandwich from Sloco: sorghum-baked country ham
Last week was a week of firsts: my first coffee from Roast Inc., brewed from Panamanian beans and smelling like a blueberry muffin. My first cocktail made with celery syrup and prosecco, concocted by Bang Candy.

I previewed two sandwiches from the upcoming Sloco: sorghum-baked ham, and vegetable with herbed tofu spread, both on homemade bread. The chewy bread and distinctive flavors worked beautifully washed down with Jackalope Jazz Honkey Donkey-weizen on my first visit to Jackalope.

Ticked the box on Nothing Bundt Cakes, newly open on White Bridge Road, where I bought lemon and white chocolate raspberry bundt cakes. Think of them as giant cupcakes that you eat with a fork (but only if people are watching).

More firsts: the inaugural Music City Hot Wing Festival, a trip to Back Alley Diner downtown, a peek at the into the nearly complete Fleet Street Pub: It was like being on the Nina, Pinta and Santa Maria of Nashville foodstuffs.

You probably tried something new that came your way this week — Bites is the place to run in and tell someone.
