Cocktails

The Bushwacker
cream of coconut / Dark rum / half and half / ice / Kahlua liqueur / vodka /
It’s not just for bachelorette parties, but one sip of this Caribbean-born boozy milkshake and you can almost hear the party bus backing up.
The Rye, Man!
angostura bitters / Cynar / ginger / lemon / Tennessee Rye whiskey /
Our ode to the iconic Ryman Auditorium has just enough rye whiskey to leave you seeing stars if you down too many.
ROI or DIE
Beer / Skull Shot /
George Thorougood approved - one shot and one beer (let’s save the Bourbon for later, m’kay?) But what’s with the “die” oh, you’ll see…
Evergreen Dream
Blue Curacao / Grenadine / Lime Juice / Pineapple / Rum /
While your dreams of pocket green ($$$) are expected in the Run Phase, this drink will have you seeing green in no time.
KPI (Key Performance Inebriator)
Vodka based recipe /
Hey, we’ve got a bright idea! How about a drink? After two of these, you’ll be giving us all the data we need and then some.
9 to 5
1 pinch of sea salt / 10ml lime juice / 50ml resposado tequila / Garnish: Lime / ice / Thomas Henry Pink Grapefruit /
Sweet, tart, and perfectly balanced - just like Dolly.
Ring of Fire

It burns, burns, burns…but just a little. This margarita-like, fruity beauty is muy caliente!

Lunch

Lunch

Puckett's Grocery & Restaurant
BBQ / Southern /
Ever heard of a “Meat and 3” special? Well, let’s go learn about ‘em at Puckett’s! Laid-back, downhome, and brimming with Southern staples like slow-smoked BBQ and apple cobbler, this place will give all of us the warm-and-fuzzies.
Assembly Food Hall
Variety /
Sushi? Shawarma? Charcuterie? Shaved ice? Shhhomething else? This fast-casual food court has 24 unique joints, so take your pick (or three)!
Hampton Social
American /
Coastal-inspired food and imaginative cocktails. Let’s see the city from a new angle on their rooftop terrace, or if your Sprint wraps early, but you’re not quite ready to head back to the office, the “Rose all Day” Lounge has our names written all over it. ; )
Blanco Cocina & Cantina
Mexican /
Tacos and margs! Tacos and margs! Who’s ready for some tacos and margs?!
Stateside Kitchen
Bar / Variety /
The jewel of Printer’s Alley? We just made that up, and now we’re gonna stand by it. This gorgeous yet informal restaurant has monkey bread, oreo beignets and a half pound of bacon on the menu, so…maybe we should all go check it out.
Etch
Global / Variety /
For those of you who like to know your chef’s pedigree, and how their day is going. Award-winning chef Deb Paquette (the FIRST female Tennessean to qualify as a certified executive-level chef) not only runs this place, but she’s likely available to chat through an internationally-inspired lunch at the chef’s bar if we call ahead!
60 Vines
Variety /
Do you need a reason to drink wine on tap at lunch? We don’t, but if you do, then we’ll give you one: celebrating a successful partnership with your friends at Drive Social Media! Now let’s go fill a glass and share like 10 small plates!
Church & Union
American / BBQ /
“Hey! This is that Top Chef guy who gave up immunity!” is what you might say if you happen to recognize him or his restaurants. If you don’t watch the show, then you might instead say, “Hey! This truffle cheese burger is friggin’ phenomenal!” Either way, you win if we pick Church & Union for lunch.
Boqueria
Spanish /
Barcelona-style tapas and Spanish classics, like patatas bravas (just how brave can these potatoes be?), and all the queso tu quieres! Oh, and the location can’t be beaten at 5th and Broadway, so maybe we’ll do a people-watching lap, or grab a Yuengling before coming back to the office.
Prince’s Hot Chicken (at Assembly Food Hall)
American / BBQ /
Comfort food for all you Nashville locals and very uncomfortable food for all the transplants and visitors. On the walk there, be sure to ask your AE to tell you the story of how Prince’s Hot Chicken came to be (it involves a jilted lover and some spicy revenge).
