Jeni’s Ice Cream: Review

It has been a year since I started EB Presents. In this blog post I am doing a post about nothing I thought I would ever do a year ago. That is reviews of local places. So today I am reviewing Jeni’s Ice Cream.

Jeni’s Ice Cream is a place to get ice cream. They have all different kinds of flavors. Some of my favorite kinds are: Cookies n’ Cream, Salted Peanut Butter, Sweet Cream.

Some kinds Beth likes are: Brown Butter Brittle, Milkiest Chocolate.

Some kinds J. Scott are: Cookies n’ Cream, Brown Butter Brittle.

I would totally recommend Jeni’s if you are visiting Nashville or Franklin or Brentwood. Their are locations in all three! I would give this place 5 stars.

Grays on MAIN: Restaurant Review

Welcome back to another blog post. Today, I am finally doing this Grays on MAIN Review in Franklin, TN. I think Grays is an amazing place to eat. They serve southern food that is a little more fancy than other local restaurants. You can go to Grays just to eat, but they also have music several nights a week on the second floor stage. This place is one of the first restaurants I ever ate at in Franklin. I ate at Grays before I moved to the area. I love this restaurant. If you are visiting Franklin, I would stop by for some music. I recommend it!

Grays also has a website which you can check out by clicking here. On their website, they have a schedule of bands. Also, they have the links taken care of so if you go to their website you can find them on Instagram, YouTube, Twitter, Pinterest and Facebook. Oh and speaking of social media be sure to follow me on Instagram by clicking here.

Oh yes, I almost forgot to mention the other great spots where you can find me. Try, Youtube by clicking here. Also follow my site!

I hope everyone enjoyed this post. Be sure to like, I use your feedback to find out what to write next!

Restaurant Review of Puckett’s in Franklin

In my “Introducing Restaurant Reviews” I said that I would come out with a blog post on Oct. 20th, well here it is! Puckett’s is a restaurant in downtown Franklin. Puckett’s for having great southern food and live music. My personal favorite is fried chicken with sweet potatoes and French fries. Their menu is mostly southern style comfort food. They have big portions of dang good food for a good price. First I will be talking about dinner.

  • Dinner

I always come here to eat dinner and listen to live music. Here is a list of some of the soloist and bands I seen.

  • The Young Fables
  • Camille Rae
  • Nathan Picard
  • Kristy Cox
  • Parker McKay
  • A Blues Band (forgot the name).
  • Breakfast

I have had breakfast here to. I got the King’s French Toast which is peanut butter and banana stuffed French toast. It totally recommend. They also have your egg’s and bacon biscuit, biscuits and gravy, and lots of breakfast favorite’s including the King’s French Toast.

Puckett’s is my favorite place to take my out of town family to show them what living in Franklin feels like. When ever you are in there the crowd is friendly locals and visitors. This is my #1 recommended place for eating in Franklin and Nashville. There is one in Nashville too!

Introducing Restaurant Reviews

I will be doing Reviews on Restaurants in my Franklin, Nashville, and Travel categories on EB Presents. It will be mainly positive recommendations from me unless if the place is really bad (which would be a head’s up). These reviews will be mainly local restaurants (in that area) and local chains (for example a restaurant is in Franklin and also in Nashville). My first review will be on a restaurant which is Downtown Franklin and it has really great live music. The restaurant is called Puckett’s. They have great food (Fried Chicken ❤️). More things about Puckett’s will be in my review that is out Oct. 20th (which may already be out if it is October 20th or past that). I will also be doing restaurant reviews in Nashville (Nashville category) and some from my trip to Asheville, North Carolina (Travel Category). Check for more things like this in the categories Franklin, Nashville, and Travel. Also check out the first episode of EB Present’s first ever web series, Ethan and His Music. The first episode is out (came out Sep. 29th), the second episode is November 3rd, the third episode is December 31st (on the last hour of the year in central time), the fourth episode comes March 2nd, the 5th episode is April 6th, and the season finale is May 18th.
