Brunch for Dinner: Nightingale Network Girls Night Out

The Daily Ration is hosting a FREE brunch buffet exclusively for the Nightingale Network on July 23 from 5-7 p.m. No program, just gather your girlfriends and enjoy a mid-week, evening brunch! We all need more brunch plus more time with the girls and this event delivers both! Come out, order a drink or two and support the Network.

Thanks to the Daily Ration for sponsoring this event and providing delightful brunch options for free! That means guests will just need to purchase drinks and we'll have the bar open plus classic brunch specials like bloody marys and mimosas.

The committee members will be available to answer questions about the Nightingale Network and we will announce our three grant finalists! Grab your friends and meet us at the Daily Ration!

We're not done - and together, we'll keep working to move Tennessee from 49 to One!

Support Night at the Solarium Cafe

Nightingales! We have another free networking opportunity and fun night out thanks to the generous support of the Solarium Cafe (in the Dwell Hotel). The restaurant will donate 10% of the profits made at this event to the Nightingales so come out and have drinks and order something delicious to eat! Did we mention they serve breakfast all day?! That's our kind of place. 

There will be a Nightingale Cocktail special available all evening, created just for our event! 

We'll have a section for networking, but if you're looking for a quiet dinner with your significant other that's fine too! There's plenty of seating and options. So grab your friends or special someone and make plans to join us and support the Network.

Want to support us but can't make it for happy hour? Visit for breakfast, lunch or late night and tell the staff you're there to support the Nightingale Network and your purchase will count!

Together we will make Tennessee a constantly improving place for women and girls.
