The holiday season is very busy. Residents in Nashville spend more money during this type of year at bars and restaurants than any other time of the year. It's also a popular time to attend an event throughout the city.

This holiday season, make sure you get home safely with the Tow to Go program. This is a program put in place by the AAA Auto Club South, the Highway Safety Office and Budweiser. The program allows those in need of a ride home to get both a ride and a tow for their vehicle. Instead of taking the chance and driving under the influence, you have a better choice this year.

Sometimes it's not the thick steak or the skewer of shrimp that draw you to a restaurant. Of course, the entree is great, but what about the side dishes? Have you ever gone to a restaurant because they were known for the best French fries or the best hot sauce? Here are some of the best non-entree choices in Nashville.

Best Hot Sauce

The Further Farms' Scorpion Stone sauce is the best hot sauce found in the city. It includes tequila, pomegranate juice and the Trinidad Moruga scorpion pepper. It has more flavor than the ghost pepper, but it's still very hot. If you want to enjoy this sauce, you better be ready for the tears to drip out of your eyeballs.

Best Croissants

El Nuevo Dia serves the best croissants, which are certainly not an entree.

When I moved to Nashville from Savannah over a year ago, I was immediately impressed by the restaurant scene.  While Savannah had historic charm and coastal/Southern cuisine, Nashville and its surrounding area proved to be a mecca for incredible dining, from upscale to dives.  I think it has a lot to do with the eclectic mix of natives and transplants that flock to the city.

While this list is by no means comprehensive, here are a few of my favorites on the Nashville scene.  Naming anything as “best” in Nashville always proves to be contentious (ex: get people in a debate about the best hot chicken), but my taste buds haven’t steered me wrong yet.

Best Burger:  Burger Republic, in Lenox Village.  What, you were expecting The Pharmacy in East
