Kung Fu Saloon LogoOn Tuesday, October 10, come join Achilles Nashville for a night of fun—a fundraiser at Kung Fu Saloon located in Midtown at 1921 Division St. Nashville, TN 37203. Kung Fu features a theme that’s part vintage arcade, part sports bar, and part late night dance party – They offer a full bar including 24 beers on tap, a one of a kind sake bomb menu, and pickle shots. Click the link for the drink menu.


The food menu offers Asian-inspired American fare with items such as cheeseburger egg rolls, Cap’n Crunch fried pickles, burgers, salads and soon to be famous “The Dank” sandwich. Click the link for the food menu.


Come have fun playing 20 vintage arcade games (e.g., Ms. Pacman, NBA Jam, Mortal Kombat, Galaga, Golden Tee, Big Buck Hunter). The fun continues with Shuffleboard, foosball, five original Skee Ball machines, Giant Jenga, Giant Connect Four, and board games. Or have some karaoke fun!

Let’s have some healthy competition with our Achilles teams! Bring your friends, family, and share on your social media. This is a night not to be missed.
