Eat Spaghettata for NAMI Dec. 16


The Italian Market (411 51st Avenue North) will host a fundraiser for the National Alliance on Mental Illness Nashville Chapter on Saturday, December 16 (tomorrow), from 5 to 8 p.m. There is no charge to attend this event, and the proceeds from all dining sales will benefit NAMI Nashville.

NAMI Nashville is a grassroots, self-help organization dedicated to improving quality of life for individuals with mental illness, their families and communities. Its mission is accomplished through mutual support, education and advocacy.

Here's a 2005 review of the Italian Market from Nashville Scene food critic Kay West in case you are getting hungry:
BEST NEW SPECIALTY MARKET: THE ITALIAN MARKET Though it’s a little off the beaten path, the brand-new Italian Market adheres to that typical tagline locals use when giving directions: you can’t miss it. Take Charlotte Pike from downtown toward White Bridge Road, look for the landmark gold-domed bank building at 51st Avenue North, turn toward the interstate, look for the squat cinderblock building painted like an Italian flag in red, white and green. See, you can’t miss it! And you won’t want to, if you, like many Italian Americans and transplanted Yankees, have been longing for imported Italian meats and cheeses, Pagliacci canned goods, dark tuna packed in olive oil, pine nut cookies, jars of pickled pepper spread, a cup of fresh-brewed espresso and a square of lasagna just like Nonna used to make. Not to mention wondering where the hell Corrado Savarino’s fresh-baked Italian bread has gone. Right here! You can’t miss it! —KAY WEST
Yum! If you're looking for something to do tomorrow night, here's a good cause to go along with a great meal!
