This weekend, you'll find a lot of music in the mix, whether it be a Friday night concert at Lipscomb, an ensemble performance in Green Hills or a fundraiser featuring headliner John Oates. Other events include a festival at Centennial Park (don't worry about the cold — you can warm up next to the onsite s'mores stations), a chili cook-off at a business in Green Hills and more.
But before we get into the details of this weekend, we'd like to hear from you. Today is #LoveMyNewspaperDay. We love reporting for you in Green Hills and Belle Meade, and now we want to know what you love about being a Rover.
