If you're interested in the festival or want to buy tickets, go here. Looks like the $20 tickets are sold out, but there are still "preferred viewing" tickets at $40.
Meanwhile, as we chatted about the event, Bites' own Chris Chamberlain raised the question of where the best soul food can be found in Nashville.
Chris likes the venerable Sands. I immediately thought of Ron's BBQ & Fish in Antioch. Though I haven't been there for a while, I still savor the memory of a smothered pork chop I got there a few years ago — it remains high on my list of favorite down-home dishes ever.
How about you, Bites Nation? Where do you find good soul food? And since this is the Open Thread, what else — silly, soulful or in between — is on your mind?
