Stocking 51 – Local Business Spotlight


The great thing about Stocking 51 in the Nations is that you can celebrate Cinco de Mayo by eating, drinking, and shopping AND stay in a single city block. The 93-year-old building that was once home to the Belle Meade Hosiery Mill now houses a variety of businesses that offer a youthful vibe to match the building’s face lift.

Because you need coffee:

Frothy Monkey serves up some of the finest coffee in Nashville, it’s all we drink at the station. This is the newest Frothy Monkey location and the coffee does not disappoint.

Okay, but if you are just looking to jump right into celebrating, you could always grab a Bloody Mary from Walkers Bloody Marys and Margaritas or sample one of the many fine craft beers at Southern Grist. It’s Cinco de Mayo after all, live a little.

Because everyone’s gotta eat:

Luckily, Food Truck City has established residency in the neighborhood and will be open from 11-8pm. Eight food trucks will be here with a special Food Truck Taco Challenge (I think I literally had a dream about this!) and all food trucks will have a creative “taco” item on their menu.

Because you cannot pass up a good cause:

ABLE makes beautiful products for women while helping end generational poverty by employing women who have overcome extraordinary circumstances. It’s one of our favorite social enterprises in Nashville AND they are having a Warehouse Sample Sale from 9-1pm on May 5. Every dollar you spend will help impact the lives of women locally and globally so don’t be afraid to go wild and take full advantage of up to 75% off. If you like shopping prepared, you can do your research at or on social media @livefashionABLE!

Also be sure to tune into Lightning 100 on Friday, May 4, for your chance to win an ABLE prize package that includes over $300 of ABLE products. Lt. Dan will be interviewing two lovely ladies from ABLE who will be giving away some beautiful products on-air.

And because (obviously) you need to dance:

Do not fear. There will be a mariachi band.

See you there!
