Miss A Columnist

Stacey Oswald, originally from South Florida, moved to Nashville as a member of Vanderbilt University's class of 2015. There, she is the assistant editor of Vanderbilt HerCampus, an online magazine for college girls, as well as a writer for the sports section of the Vanderbilt Hustler. She recently became an initiated sister of Kappa Delta sorority and looks forward to getting involved in more organizations, like an a capella group or a club sport, during her college career. Outside of school and her extracurriculars, Stacey finds happiness in many sources, the most crucial being exercise and the sun. She loves to attend exercise classes and is an avid runner; she recently completed the Country Music Half Marathon. She also loves Vitamin D, especially when on the beach- though of course, she only soaks up the sun after applying SPF. A few of the things Stacey couldn't live without? Good food (especially from Sweet Cece's, Bricktops, and Bread & Co.), great books (The Bungalow by Sarah Jio is a recent favorite), her family back in Florida, her wonderful boyfriend, and all of the great friends she's made at Vanderbilt.

Nashville Chili Festival 2014 To Benefit Community Shares

The freezing temperatures overtaking Nashville call for only one thing- soup. More specifically, chili. And lots of it.

But you can only get multiple bowls of chili while still remaining socially acceptable if you go to the Nashville Chili Festival on February 9th. It’s going to be held at Yazoo Brewing Company, one of the coolest venues in Nashville. It also supports a fantastic cause, Community Shares.


Community Shares is an organization with a vision- access to healthcare, clean air and water, quality education, good jobs, fair treatment under the law, and freedom from violence. They believe that they can make this dream into a reality for all Tennesseans by funding nonprofits advocating for social change. They also believe in the donor’s choice to give to any nonprofit involved with Community Shares, which is what really differentiates them from other charitable organizations.

But beyond the great cause associated with this event, the Nashville Chili Festival is truly fun for the whole family. If you fancy yourself a chef, whip up five gallons of your world-famous chili and enter it into the contest. More rules for entry can be found here, but don’t feel bad if you’re more interested in eating chili than cooking it! If you know any thrill-seekers, attendees can enter the pepper eating contest. This particular part of the event is guaranteed to make you forget about the cold weather! Finally, there will be live music, kids activities, and tons of beer, which guarantees a great time for every member of your family!

So head over to Yazoo on February 9th at noon for an afternoon that will make both you and your belly happy!

WHEN: Sunday February 9th from 12:00-3:00PM

Yazoo Brewing Company
