Local Businesses & Non-Profit Come Together For Lemon:Aid Restaurant Week

We hope you like lemons. This week marks the second annual Lemon:Aid Nashville Restaurant Week – A week where local businesses bust out their best lemon-themed dishes, drinks and desserts in support of local non-profit Blood:Water Mission’s campaign to bring sustainable clean drinking water to areas of Africa in need. It’s a twist on the good, old-fashioned lemonade stand, and each participating local business will donate the proceeds from sales of their featured Lemon:Aid item to Blood:Water Mission. Here’s where you can get your hands on the lemon-y goodness:

The Wild Cow – evening entrees
Ugly Mugs – cookies and cupcakes
Marche – lemonade
Nuvo Burrito – LEMONuveau cocktail
Pied Piper Creamery – lemon gelato
Sweet 16th Bakery – lemon bars
Sip Cafe – lemon toddy
Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams – lemon ice cream
Holland House – TBD
Crema – Peach Basil Sparkling Lemonade
Farmhouse Restaurant at Fontanel – Farmhouse lemon tart
Baja Burrito – agave nectar lemonade
The Cupcake Collection – free mini cupcakes for your stand when you pick up your Lemon:Aid kit
The Cocoa Tree – lemonade truffle
The Crag at Cool Springs – $1 donated for every day pass purchased
Chile Burrito – portion of overall sales
Foxy Baking Co. – baked lemon treats
The Grilled Cheeserie – lemon pudding

Lemon:Aid Restaurant Week in Nashville runs July 18-24, so stop by a few of the businesses listed above and pick up some treats. (We never thought we’d be going to Crema for the lemonade, but we’ll see you there!)

Blood:Water will also host a free block party and open house on Friday, July 22 from 4-7:30pm at their office in East Nashville (3 McFerrin Ave). The Grilled Cheeserie, Foxy Baking Co and Beve Coffee will be on hand to keep bellies filled while The Grayces & The Nobility perform, and Ride:Well bike tour riders will be making a pitstop in Nashville for the party before continuing on to complete their cross-country bike trek.
