Holiday Guide, Part 3: Eat and Drink Your Holiday Heart Out

Part 3 of our Holiday Guide will have you full and happy with a listing of Nashville’s yummiest holiday eats and treats!

What holiday guide would be complete without the glue that holds the whole thing together: food and drinks! You wouldn’t even bother going to your in-laws’ house if your mother-in-law didn’t make that chocolate pie that made it all worth it (and your father-in-law didn’t slip a little extra bourbon in your eggnog).

Check out our faves for celebrating the season with delicious food and drink.
