Best Mayoral Legacy 

Music City Hot Chicken Festival

What's hotter than the Whitland Avenue Fourth of July Picnic, the venerable display of All-American wealth and privilege in the tony 37205 neighborhood? The Music City Hot Chicken Festival, which packs thousands into 37206's East Park. The new Public Square and all those greenways are important, but on his last day in office in 2007, outgoing mayor and hot chicken addict Bill Purcell called a hand-picked committee to City Hall to charge them with carrying the cayenne-flamed torch of the festival forward. Let it be known forevermore that on the day we honor our nation's independence, Prince's, 400 Degrees, Bolton's and The Chicken Shack shall set aside their differences and come together for the common purpose of setting mouths ablaze, celebrating the fiery fowl that is Nashville's most unique contribution to culinary culture. —KAY WEST
