The Rotary Club of Spring Hill and Thompson has finalized plans and lined up more than a dozen local food and drink providers for its first annual summer event in the Town of Thompson’s Station, Sip & Savor at the Station.
A travel-themed premier tasting event, Sip & Savor will be held at Thompson’s Station’s historic namesake train station. The goal is to promote locally owned and operated food and beverage vendors, celebrating the Town of Thompson’s Station while raising money for the area’s local Rotary chapter.
“We have created a travel-themed event reminiscent of times when the station was still in use – a time when travel was not merely a means to a destination, it was an experience,” said Spring Hill Alderman Kayce Williams, as she presented the event to her Thompson’s Station counterparts in April. “We want our patrons to meander through the town, explore the buildings, enjoy the landscape and sample all the delights our little neck of world has to offer.”
Williams, the chairman of the Spring Hill Parks and Recreation Commission, told Thompson’s Station officials at their April meeting that the Rotary is dedicated to improving the community and all proceeds from the ticketed Sip & Savor event will go to the betterment of the park systems in both municipalities.
“We’re grateful and appreciative that you choose to profile Thompson’s Station, and this downtown area has a lot of potential and is one of our focus areas as a community,” Thompson’s Station Mayor Corey Napier said.
In addition to food vendors like Homestead Manor, Grecian Pizzeria, Christy’s, Acapulco’s, Taziki’s, The Office Hangout and local caterers like Table for Two, organizers have lined up distinguished distilleries like Tenn South, Old Forge, Short Mountain and H. Clark Distillery to tempt guests’ taste buds.
There will also be samples from wineries like Amber Falls, Natchez Hills and Pickers Creek and draughts from microbreweries like Rock Bottom Brewery, Bad Idea Brewing, Mantra Brewery, Wild Hare Beer Co. and Spiked Seltzer, according to a news release.
Desserts will be provided by Sweet Cee Cee’s, Pie Sensations, Padrino’s Pops and Gigi’s Cupcakes, and The Cigar Station will be on site for those desiring a smokey accompaniment to their experience.
Sip & Savor is planned for Saturday, June 18 from 7 through 10 p.m. Tickets are $60 per person and $100 per couple. It is a 21-and-up only event. The event is sponsored by Vanderbilt Health and Station Wine and Spirits.
