You can test the theory this weekend with Latin music, DJs and food trucks at the preview opening of Casa Azafrán, an inclusive community center that brings together health, legal, education and business services, a community kitchen and more for the burgeoning international corridor of Nolensville Road. Casa Azafrán is located at 2193 Nolensville Road, between Wedgewood and I-440.
Vendors include a lineup I haven't seen elsewhere: Just Like Nannie Fixed It, Karla's Catering, Happy Belly, Mitznahuatl Taqueria and Tropi Mix paletas. Music provided by radio station La Sabrocita.
Festivities — and by festivities, I mean health screenings as well as eating and dancing — begin at 11 a.m. Casa Azafrán, a project of Conexion Americas, is set to open this fall.
