Yazoo Tap Room. If you’re reading this on Friday, hurry over to Marathon Village and down a few pints of Nashville’s own Yazoo brew by 8 p.m. Brewmasters Linus and Lila Hall are sending all proceeds go to the American Red Cross Disaster Relief Fund.
Blackstone. On Tuesday, Sept. 6, when Scene staffers are hungry and crankily churning out deadline copy, we’re hoping someone will run over to Blackstone and pick some food up for us. We’ll even pay you back. 100% of all sales between 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. go to a Katrina disaster relief fund—hopefully not one overseen by Pat Robertson.
The Villager. How could a bar with a giant American flag painted the front on not chip in and do its part in the hurricane relief effort? Next Friday, Sept. 9, not one but two bartenders will be on duty at all times; they’re donating all tips to a Katrina relief fund. (Remember: if you tip 100%, they ring the bell.) In addition, 30% of all sales go to the same worthy cause. Bottoms up.
Bosco’s. And it’s not exactly the same kind of hurricane relief, but if you can show proof of residence in a devastated area—Cleveland doesn’t count—they’ll buy your lunch tomorrow between 11 a.m. and 3 p.m. And hey, you’ve probably earned a cold beer to wash it down. Welcome to Nashville.
