Kings Bowl Cool Springs Featuring New Songwriters’ Night Every Tuesday

Kings Bowl is coming up on its 1 year anniversary in May, and we’re so happy it opened its doors just outside of Nashville.  Starting this Tuesday, one of our favorite hang outs, is featuring their new “Top Songwriters Series” beginning at 7pm-10pm in their Whiskey Room every Tuesday night.

The Whiskey Room

Admission is free and will be happening every Tuesday night starting at 7pm.

Plan to come out a little early or stay late, aside from the great music, you can also dine on their incredible food.

This is not normal bowling alley food.  You can of course dine on a hamburger or pizza if you want, but everything is made from scratch in their kitchen and definitely worth a try in the Draft Room.  You can dine on fresh salmon, steak, and scallops.  Casual food or fancy, it’s your choice! Come hungry!

The Draft Room

Of course, you don’t want to miss a chance to bowl a game with your friends on their trendy, cool lanes.  There are also fun interactive games to be played or just wind down for a nice meal and watch tv on their widescreen tvs in their restaurant at this unique venue attached to Cool Springs Mall in Franklin, TN.

You’ll be glad you took the time to enjoy all it has to offer while you’re out there, and we have no doubts that you’ll be back visiting very soon!

Located at: 
Cool Springs Mall
1910 Galleria Blvd, Franklin, Tennessee 37067

Take a look back and check out this fun video from “Stars And Strikes”, a charity event featuring several country stars at Kings Bowl, part of its grand opening festivities last May!

The Grape Stomp: Stompin’ It Out In Franklin

Grape stomping team “I Kissed A Grape And I Liked It”

The Grape Stomp has to be one of my favorite events to be part of this year.  Seriously, who doesn’t like to attend an outdoor wine festival on a beautiful autumn day enjoying some great music for a good cause?

The grape stomping winning team was the “Zin-ful Pleasures” who are a group of Recovery Room nurses from Williamson Medical Center.
