We’re giving, “Well, that wasn’t on my 2023 bingo card,” a new narrative this year. With so many fresh and established foodie destinations in Music City, it’s hard to make a plan to visit them all — that’s where we come in.

Grab your daubers and come hungry. NASHtoday’s 2023 restaurant bingo card has arrived. A challenge, for you and for us, to visit 24 eateries that call Nashville home before the start of 2024.

How’s it work?

Simply screenshot and save the bingo card below and start marking the restaurants you visit in 2023 off the list. Go at your own pace, or spread it out over the course of the year (24 restaurants equals ~one restaurant every couple of weeks — give or take).

Perks of playing

Outside of expanding your palate and supporting local business, of course. We’re entering everyone who emails us a completed bingo card before Jan. 1, 2024 into a drawing for a chance to win a $50 gift card to our online store Six and Main.
