I've been meaning to tell you...

  • Yayo's O.M.G. (Original Mexican Gourmet) food cart will be in Midtown/Music Row, at Conexion Americas, today from 11am-3pm
  • Nashville Rueda salsa auditions will be held tonight at 7pm, Centennial Park Event Shelter: in the BACK of the Park, West End Ave., & 25th. Ave. North (looking for 3 couples to perform in Knoxville September 24th, St. Louis October 1st, Huntsville October 22nd, Atlanta December 10th, and potentially San Francisco February 28th 2012)
  • Metro Police's El Protector Hispanic Festival will be held July 24
  • The call has been made to visual artists to participate in Nashville's Internationals V (application deadline August 9); this is different than Metro's call for Hispanic artists to submit for a separate show
  • The Nashville Chamber of Commerce joined Partnership for a New American Economy - business in favor of an immigration bureaucracy overhaul - and penned this explanation of why at
  • Speaking of the Nashville Chamber of Commerce, it also penned an article called, "Nashville Works to Harness Entrepreneurial Spirit of Nation’s Fastest-Growing Immigrant Population," featuring a video of entrepreneurs boosted by Conexion Americas
  • Tennessee teens are standing up to deportations
  • Tera Vazquez is now the CEO of Nashville's Guy Brown Products, after co-founder Bappa Mukherji decided to leave the company and sell his shares to Vazquez and the other co-founder. Vazquez formerly held the title of President but not CEO. Few changes are expected in Vazquez's day-to-day duties.  (Read Part 1 and Part 2 of my 2010 interview with Tera Vazquez; it's pretty good.)
  • Carrie Ferguson-Weir is blogging over at Bilingual in the Boonies again.
