Help Make A Difference (Beat the Heat)

Nashville's Mission H2O flyer

We’re excited to announce that Puckett’s 5th & Church is teaming up with the Nashville Rescue Mission during the month of August for Mission H2O! Starting August 1st, diners at our downtown Nashville location will have the option to add a donation to the total of their bill.

For every dollar given in the month of August, two water bottles will be donated to the Mission. AND – we’ve pledged to match all of the donations!

We all dread the sweltering heat that seems inevitable with summertime in Music City. But the Nashville homeless population dreads it more — and oftentimes, we don’t stop to think about how it effects them physically, mentally and emotionally. They are so exposed to all of the dangers that are associated with the high temps that we see during August–the hottest month of the year–like serious dehydration, sunburn and heat stroke.

To help combat this, the Mission sends out “Hot Patrol” teams when the temperature gets above 90 degrees to drive around town handing out water bottles and encouraging those without shelter to pay a visit to the Mission. The water bottles donated through Puckett’s would allow the Hot Patrol teams to increase the number of people they are able to help and positively impact this summer.

The Nashville Rescue Mission is dedicated to helping the hungry and homeless, and offers programs that focus on spiritual growth, education, employment and life-recovery. They aim to give members of the community hope for today, hope for tomorrow, and hope for eternity. We’re so honored to be the only restaurant partnering with the Mission on this project, and we can’t wait to see what happens when members of the community band together to help out fellow Nashvillians.

So, make sure to come see us in August! Grab a bite to eat, add a dollar or two to your ticket, and help us spread some #PuckettsLove to such an important organization in our community.

Green Eggs and…Wine? Yes.

Puckett's Boat House UncorkedAh, sweet summertime. It’s almost impossible not to think of sunshine, swimming pools and gatherings around the grill. So, for next week’s edition of Puckett’s Boat House‘s Uncorked, we’re bringing the grill to you! And is there a better way to do that than with a Big Green Egg? No? Our thoughts exactly.

In addition to a demo on how to use the oh-so popular grilling sensation, we’ll be servin’ up a featured selection of wine + appetizer pairings (think open-flame favorites like burgers, steak and salmon filets). By the end of the night, not only will you be a sommelier of sorts but you’ll know exactly which wines are perfect for your next backyard BBQ!

Each month for Uncorked, we bring in experts from Moon Wine & Spirits so y’all can sip and swirl your way to learning all about the flavors and complexities of vino. Guests will sample five pours, light appetizers and the opportunity to ask the pros questions til your heart’s content (pssst, all that for just $20!). Get out there and spice up your Tuesday night before the summer’s over, y’all. It doesn’t get much better than good wine, delicious food and fun conversation with new friends!

Guide to the Fourth

Bubba's Bones

Our Bubba’s Bones are the perfect dish for the Fourth!

It’s time to bust out the red, white & blue! We have major #PuckettsLove for the 4th (obviously). Nothing makes us quite as happy as watching fireworks, celebrating the great country we live in, tucking into BBQ and getting to spend time with friends and family.

Not quite sure what to do this weekend? You could come listen to some live tunes at any of the Puckett’s locations! Rock out to classics of the 60’s and 70’s with Boomerang at Puckett’s Franklin, enjoy the acousitic performances of The Main Street duo at Puckett’s Boat House, jam to the soulful voice of Jon Mullins in Nashville, or enjoy Sage Cobble’s country flair in Columbia (be sure to call for reservations).

If you can’t get into one of our Puckett’s shows, here’s our guide to celebrating the Fourth with a bang in a Puckett’s city near you:

CHATTANOOGA

Though Puckett’s Chattanooga isn’t open yet, we still want all you Chattanoogans to get out & have a blast on the Fourth! Pops on the River is a community celebration that starts at 5 p.m. in Coolidge Park. Don’t forget your blankets, chairs & picnic baskets as you listen to great music & a FREE concert by the Chattanooga Symphony & Orchestra! This year’s event pays tribute to the veterans who’ve risked everything for our freedom. Starting at 5 p.m., the event kicks off with a performance by Ironglide, an all-veteran rock band from Nashville. Other acts include veteran songwriters from the music therapy program Operation Song and Mitch Rosnell with his band.  The CSO will begin their patriotic performance at 8 p.m., followed by fireworks over the Tennessee River at 9:45 p.m.

COLUMBIA

For all you folks in the Mule Capital of the World, get on out to The Park After Dark, an annual free concert and fireworks show held at Maury County Park! Music starts at 6 p.m. and features great acts like Eric Street, Logan Blade, and Cody Sumpter & The Fish Pickles. A fireworks show will start later in the evening!

FRANKLIN

Come one, come all to Franklin on the Fourth! The free festival kicks off at 10 am with bluegrass music, craft and food vendors, antique cars, and a kids’ zone. Live music will be played on the stage all day, and there will even be a children’s parade starting at 5 p.m.! Franklin on the Fourth wraps up at 8 p.m. so folks can start movin’ over to Harlinsdale Farm for the fireworks show around 9:15 pm. Don’t forget your lawn chairs & blankets!

NASHVILLE

Have y’all heard the news yet?? Nashville’s fireworks display will be the largest in the COUNTRY this year! Music City July 4th: Let Freedom Sing starts at noon on Saturday with family-friendly games, musicians and inflatables. Music on the Jack Daniel’s Main Stage starts at 6:30 with performances by Annie Bosko, Mikky Ekko, and Martina McBride. Yes y’all, we said Martina McBride. And have we mentioned that it’s all FREE? It only gets better with the fireworks display at 9:30 p.m. being accompanied by the Nashville Symphony Orchestra.

Stay safe, and enjoy all the Fourth fun folks! #puckettslovesamerica
