Here's an explanation, from the BE Hive website:
The BE Hive is a collective.
It’s a campaign for good. It’s an idea that advocates healthy lifestyle choices, community involvement, and sustainable environmental practices. We believe that grassroots action, BEginning with one’s self, can bring about global change and awareness.
As of now, The BE Hive exists in the form of a weekly Tuesday dinner buffet at The Wild Cow Vegetarian Restaurant in East Nashville. Each week we donate a percentage of our profits to progressive and socially conscious causes that we support.
Last week's buffet featured a Thai theme, and it was fabulous. I won't go into details, since tonight's buffet features a completely different menu, with a Jamaican theme: Dishes include jerk soy strips, banana tofu curry, island barbecue lentils, mashed sweet potato casserole, coconut carrots, smokey greens and more. For $10 ($9 to go), it's an exceptional deal. A percentage of the proceeds will benefit Walk/Bike Nashville. If I get out of work on time (note to self — no iPhone solitaire), I'll be there. In fact, I plan on going just about every Tuesday that I'm free.
The BE Hive buffet takes place 4 to 9 p.m. every Tuesday at The Wild Cow, 1896 Eastland Ave.
