The Nashville Latest: Weekly News & Events:

Hey Beeutifuls! Here is the tea on this week's three latest buzzes on the new happenings, trends, events, news, (maybe some gossip) for the week of Friday, July 16, 2021 - Friday, July 23, 2021.

WAAAIITT! One second before we start, I'm getting my coffee. I'm sorry, I know. I'm being so #extra.

Did Somebody Say 'Food?'

Shh! Not yet! You're stealing my thunder...Okay, so food! What's a #Buzzdown without it?!

Pop-up Italian restaurant, St. Vito Focacciaria was born by Chef Michael Hanna, serving flavorsome Sicilian street food and pizza. This nomadic restaurant began in Chef Hanna's home and is building into a brick & mortar success. As a previous East Nashville’s Vandyke Bed and Beverage pop-up restaurant a few weeks prior, this experimental Italian haven is nesting into a temporary home at Hathorne until a permanent location is secured from 3 p.m. to 9 p.m., beginning on Sunday, July 18.

I frequently get asked about the name of my shop and where it comes from. ABEDNEGO is from one of my favorite stories in the bible. It tells the story of three men (one being Abednego) that were thrown into a fiery furnace but because of their faith they came out alive. I like to relate that to our lives today, a big part of life is being thrown into situations and circumstances that might not be ideal or necessarily wanted. Time and time again we battle these circumstances to find ourselves coming out alive because of our faith. We have to choose to learn and grow from those situations. This shop is a testimony to that, because of the trials in my life I have been able to grow and be where I am today. I hope you find strength and continue to have faith everyday because you are worth it.
