DALLAS, TX – Velvet Taco will open their 38th restaurant in East Nashville, Tennessee on March 20, 2023. On behalf of Velvet Taco’s Nashville Friends & Family opening night, donations to W.O.

Now, Velvet Taco is broadening its reach by bringing East Nashville their scratch made menu of unique taco creations.
During Velvet Taco’s VIP night for Friends & Family, guests will have the opportunity to donate to W.O.
