First off on Tuesday, March 25, Yazoo and the Delta Bound Southern Food truck are kicking off this year's "Cooking with Yazoo" series with chef Jessica Mobley. Doors will open at 5:30 p.m., with dinner kicking off at 6. Chef Jes will be bringing her Mississippi Delta-inspired Southern comfort food to the taproom and using Yazoo in her recipes. Each course will also be paired with a selected Yazoo beer, or you can choose from other of their brews on tap if you want to make up your own pairing.
Tickets are $40 per person, which includes food + drinks. Spots are limited; reserve yours at the event website.
Two nights later on Thursday, March 27, Yazoo and Riffs Fine Street Food are the featured participants at the Root 53 Foundation's 2014 Spring Friendraiser, a benefit for Tennessee Titans' linebacker Moise Fokou's charitable organization.
Fokou's efforts focus on offering healthy living workshops for youth in underserved communities and donating resources through their Root 53 Backpack and Lunchbox Initiatives.
The event will be held at the Yazoo taproom at 910 Division St. from 5 to 8 p.m. Tickets are available at the organization's website for $20 until March 24, then $25 after that. Your donation will go 100% to the Root 53 Foundation and entitles you to one free pint (and a dollar off of subsequent pints during the party) plus a chicken biscuit, pub slider or Korean taco from Riffs. You'll also have the chance to meet Fokou and learn about his vision to aid underserved youth in Nashville.
