More Promises Unkept
In the just-completed season of The Promise, WPLN's Meribah Knight examines school re-segregation by zooming into one neighborhood in Nashville where that divide is indisputably apparent. She spent a full year reporting inside Warner Elementary and alongside its staff, from May of 2019 until May 2020, as the school grappled with Covid-19. This season will make you think differently about the role we all play in a system that has failed to provide many children with a quality education.
Get that Nashville sound with livestreamed concerts with Nashville artists performing in local music venues. In support of Nashville's cherished musicians and live music venues, Music City Bandwidth presented by Jack Daniel's is hosting concerts through October 31 at independent Nashville music venues, providing gigs for 120 Nashville-based musicians. Order a Jack Snack Pack, complete with a Music City shot glass, Old Fashioned drink mix (just add Jack!), Prohibition popcorn, Lil' Goos, and a Nashville guitar pick bottle opener to accompany the tunes. In case you know a music venue owner (and who in this town doesn't), there are CARES funds available to live music venues totaling $2 million. Live music venues in Davidson County may qualify for grants up to two months of operating expenses, not to exceed $100,000.
Gifts for the Corner (Home) Office
Bosses are people, too, and they love to get gifts just like people do. With all that is going on, this is a great year to step up your gift-giving game to make sure that your boss knows how much they are appreciated. To make it easy to find a gift that will knock their socks off (do you think they are wearing socks in their Zoom meetings?), we found gifts to fit every type of boss in every price range.
FOOD & DRINK WHAT
Kids shouldn't have all of the treats so we asked Brad White of White's Elixirs for a Halloween-y cocktail recipe. Alas, he created the "Poor Yorich." The feisty rye whiskey is balanced out perfectly by the smooth, slightly sweet, orange kissed White' Elixirs Old Fashioned mix. The Fernet adds a dark, mint note that alerts your taste buds to Fall's full arrival.
- 2 oz Old Forester Rye whiskey
- 1 oz Fernet Vallet
- 1 oz White's Elixirs Old Fashioned Mix
