Just a quick note this morning:In April 2010, Guy Fieri and Diners Drive-ins and Dives visited Nashville, TN. The last of the restaurants from that trip premieres on Monday, December 13, Wings 'n Things; and it couldn't come at a better time for Jamaicaway.
Jamaicaway is in danger of closing due to the spring Nashville floods. The record flooding shut down the Farmers' Market, including Jamaicaway, during its three busiest months: May, June, and July. Customers will attempt to save the restaurant by attending a benefit event tomorrow, Saturday, December 11th at the restaurant. It starts at 6 p.m.
Save Jamaicaway! Check Out the Benefit Party This Weekend - read more about the event at NashvilleScene.com.
*Update* Guy Fieri stopped in to visit Jamaicaway today. "What a GREAT guy!! (pun intended). Guy Fieri was JUST at Jamaicaway! He stopped by to encourage us... Will we see him at the Benefit Party??" - @jamaicaway
