Intro to Home Cocktailing

Grays, 332 Main St. (Franklin)

Music City has become the home of the $12 gourmet cocktail. We’re not exactly complaining -- we love a good, swanky watering hole as music as the next – but it would be nice to learn how to whip up those concoctions at home. Luckily, this 90-minute class will cover the basics (and throw in three complimentary drinks) for $40. Translation? Bottoms up!

Mardi Gras, Y’all

Riverfront Park, 100 1st Ave. N.

The Big Easy collides with Music City this Saturday afternoon. The result? A Cajun-spiced, bead-wearing explosion of live rock bands, drag queens, magicians, fire spinners and food trucks. We’ll save you a bowl of gumbo.
