"The Social Network of the South"
1. It's Nashville! Need we say more?
2. Our venue is beyond cool! Ruby Nashville is located on the edge of Hillsboro Village, surrounded by Fannie Mae Dees Park (aka Dragon Park) and across the street from the Vanderbilt. The space has been referred to as contemporary, industrial, historic and natural – almost anything other than institutional. It is housed in what used to be a Primitive Baptist Church (constructed 1945).
3. Our host hotel, The Loews Vanderbilt, is the only AAA Four-Diamond hotel
in Tennessee for over 28 consecutive years and they just completed its $17
million renovation in July 2013! Swank! Join us Wednesday in Mason Bar at the Loews for small bites from chef Brandon Frohne and specialty cocktails settle attendees into Nashville with a healthy dose of Southern hospitality! Cash Bar.
4. Can we say VIP? Take a chartered shuttle (ie. party bus) to Fontanel
and get your Goo Goo on as you sip some Whisper Creek Tennessee SippingCream. Third time Summit attendee and Goo Goo Cluster Marketing Director Beth Sachan is cooking up a fun plan with the Whisper Creek folks for a big time on the bus! Think boozy Whisper Creek/Goo Goo shakes - Roadies! Chef Brandon Frohne of Mason's is creating nibbles using Goo Goo Clusters for everyone to eat as we ride and there will be numerous prizes to give out based on a game of social media... gift baskets, cookbooks, gift certificates...good stuff!
5. Can we say double VIP? Go on a private tour of the Southern Living Idea House and hear from the big man himself... Editor-In-Chief Lindsay Bierman!
6. The Southern Living Idea House will be decorated for Christmas... squeal!
