The City of Nashville gets hot. Really hot. So it makes sense that this is where the competition for the finals of USBG’s World Class Presented by Diageo would heat up. On this special episode of Back Bar, Greg dives into the history of this weird and wonderful southern city, its relationship with heat in all its many forms - including its chicken - and one incredible heated bartending competition. He also follows first time competitor Jessi Pollak as she prepares for the speed round, re-invents one of her grandmother’s classic recipes and even tries to summon the dead. (Spoiler alert: she takes home the gold!)
