We made it! We survived an extremely warm summer and can now relax in the beauty of cooler temperatures and colorful fall foliage. Now it’s time to curl up and get cozy by a fire while munching on some of your favorite comfort foods.

This issue of VIP Murfreesboro brings you our Dining Guide, stocked full of everything cuisine that you can imagine. We have a wide preview of many local restaurants, helping you to get to know not only their signature dishes, but also the dedicated folks behind the scrumptious food. You will also find a community guide to the multitudes of cuisine types available in Murfreesboro. It is amazing the world tour that is available to your palate within a 15-mile radius! Be sure to find a place to keep this issue – you certainly will want to hold on to this one.

We also have a section of this issue to celebrate inspirational women of Murfreesboro. You nominated an amazing group of women who have made spectacular contributions to our community, and we narrowed that list to 10 women that we will present to you as VIP Womanspirations! These are women that shop in the grocery store, drive kids to and from practice and manage their household just like you; yet they take it to the next level for a cause they are truly committed.

Inside, you will find events benefitting everything from foundations for children to stay active in camps, local organizations who fulfill dental services for those in need and groups who support women and their mission to reduce risks of breast cancer. You’ll also want to reference our event calendars. They are the perfect place to plan family outings, date nights, or group get togethers, all while giving back to your hometown.

Thank you for giving us the opportunity to be your local resource of all things Murfreesboro. Keep sending us comments, suggestions, and event info. You are the heartbeat of this publication.
