Just Ripe is excited to host Nashville jam producer Bathtub Gin during the International Biscuit Festival. Sample some of their boozy flavors, including London Pink Gin Marmalade and Limoncello Strawberry, from 11am-3pm on May 19 at the Daylight Building. Bathtub Gin is an artisanal fruit spread business born from two sisters' passion for homemade jam and a love of all things related to the 1920s and 30s.
They incorporate their fascination with the prohibition era by using fruit in the same way that speakeasies did - by combining it with its perfect match in a spirit or liqueur to enhance the flavors, giving their preserves a unique twist. They use organic ingredients and choose locally grown produce whenever possible. You can find their jams at Just Ripe every day, 8am-8pm.
And this for Biscuit Festival with our good neighbors!
Union Ave. Books and Just Ripe are also co-hosting Ashley English, author of the Handmade Living book series and the blog http://small-measure.blogspot.com/ for a book signing at 1pm.

Join us Thursday, May 31 for Scruffy City Roots: Live from the Square Room! This month's live show features the incomparable gospel/soul/blues of Mike Farris, the gypsy folk of Nashville's Humming House, and Knoxville's own hip hop darlings The Theorizt, along with other musical guests and special guest host Todd Steed. Jack Neely will once again join us for onstage artist interviews, and Black Lillies frontman Cruz Contreras will wrangle everyone for the Scruffy City Jam Session at the end of the show. Tickets are $15 in advance and $20 at the door.
This high energy monthly event celebrates Tennessee's roots as the birthplace of popular musical genres from rock & roll to country and the impact our music has had on popular culture worldwide. Not all Scruffy City performers are from Tennessee, and some of them aren't even from the United States ... but their music has been undeniably influenced by those styles popularized right in our backyard. Join us for the live monthly show at the Square Room, or tune in via Knoxville's 90.3 The Rock. Plus, catch Scruffy City Roots: Rewind following Saturday Night Live each weekend on WBIR Channel 10 (and again bright and early at 5 am on Sundays) to see in-depth artist interviews and performance clips. And beginning in June, you can also catch weekly episodes of Scruffy City Roots on PBS stations throughout Tennessee. It's all Scruffy, all the time!
