The event will be held on Friday, Feb. 3, at the school on the corner of Eighth Avenue South and Edgehill starting at 8 p.m.. Tickets are $50, but if you buy them here before Jan. 16, you can save 10 bucks. This year's inaugural party will be a throwback to all things '80s-style with everything from ultra-premium alcohol to a live 80s rock band and a cocktail wonderland.
Organizers describe said wonderland as: "a Gourmet Jello Shot Bar (Bushwackers, Espresso Martini’s, Ocean Margaritas, and Mimosas just to name a few), Signature Bottle-Carbonated Cocktails expressly made for the party, and Barrel-Aged Manhattans that will knock your socks off. Did I mention Fireball? The fireball promo team will be there to get the party rockin’."
Sounds like a can't-miss for a good cause.

“We all know and are in contact with people affected by hunger,” said Jaynee Day, president and CEO of Second Harvest Food Bank of Middle Tennessee. “Hunger often affects hard-working adults, children and seniors who simply cannot make ends meet and are forced to go without food for several meals, or even days. Our partnership with Kenwood Vineyards and Korbel Brandy provides an opportunity to make a significant impact in our community especially as the need for assistance continues to increase. ”
Tickets are $25 and will be available at the door. Cash preferred. To reserve a ticket, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call Second Harvest Food Bank at 627-1611. Proceeds from the event will benefit the Second Harvest Food Bank of Middle Tennessee in their efforts to feed hungry people and work to solve hunger issues in our community.
If you attended last month's Winter Warmer beer festival, you've already done your good deed for the week as the event raised $4,500 for the Oasis Center's Bicycle Workshop.
The Workshop is a collaboration between the Oasis Center and Halcyon Bike Shop. The Workshop is a free, six week program open to Nashville’s youth, and thanks to our friends at Humana, it is housed in a beautiful new workshop at the Youth Opportunity Center. Since June 2009, over 300 youth completed the bike program. That means 300 more young people own a bike, are safe and skilled riders and now have access to more opportunities than ever before.
Organizers of the event will be officially handing over the check to the Oasis Center tonight at a ceremony at 12 South Taproom starting at 6 p.m., and the public is invited to congratulate them on a job well done. And maybe even tip back a pint or three.
