Five Points Pizza is celebrating its 12th anniversary — and National Cheese Pizza Day if you’re into that sort of thing — with free slices of pizza today, September 5, from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. The ninth annual event will offer customers their choice of a cheese or pepperoni slice at both their 4100 Charlotte Avenue and 1012 Woodland Street locations (walk-up counter and walk-up window service only).

The pie shop and beloved neighborhood fixture has been serving New York-style pizza, strombolis, salads, garlic knots, and a generous selection of local and craft beers on draft since September 2011.

A Cuban empanada class with Salty Cubana and Grey’s Fine Cheeses

Rita Martinez of The Salty Cubana and Jackie Mau of Grey’s Fine Cheeses are kicking off Hispanic Heritage Month with an empanada-making class on September 12 at 6 p.m.

The two-and-a-half-hour event will be hosted at Grey’s Fine Cheeses in Sylvan Park and includes a brief history of Cuba and Cuban culture, a welcome drink, Spanish cheese, and a guided class on the art of empanadas and Cuban drinks.

The duo hopes to continue sharing a piece of their cultural identity and heritage with a second event at the soon-to-open Grey’s Fine Cheeses at the Factory in Franklin. Dates for the Franklin event will be announced at the end of the month.

Tickets for the September 12 class are $100 per person and can be purchased here.

Sports & Social will open its first Nashville location at The Mall at Green Hills on September 7 at 4 p.m. The 8,900-square-foot space will feature an outdoor patio, social games such as skeeball and hoops, and multiple digital media viewing opportunities including a massive state-of-the-art 33-foot LED media wall.

The menu, curated by James Beard Award nominee John Suley, features elevated pub grub for lunch, dinner, and weekend brunch. Featured dishes include spicy tuna bites, cacio e pepe arancini, truffle mushroom flatbread, and beef barbacoa tacos.

The Green Hills opening will be the 13th location for the dining and entertainment concept, and the first in Tennessee. A second Nashville location of Sports & Social will open later this year on 2nd Avenue in downtown.
