Last week, Rover gave our readers a heads up about two community meetings in Green Hills and Belle Meade, one about the retired fire hall on Richard Jones Road and the other detailing what to expect during the Hillwood Boulevard bridge reconstruction. Long-story short? Expect the fire hall to be on the market by December. As for Hillwood Boulevard, you can find how the 10-month project will affect drivers here.

Now we're looking ahead to this week. Businesses continue to open in Green Hills, including True Food Kitchen on the first floor of mixed-use development Vertis. Whether you want to stick close to Green Hills and Belle Meade this week or explore events across Nashville, we have you covered below.

Here's our list for the week of September 24-28. Enjoy.

True Food Kitchen will open Wednesday, Sept. 26, at 3994 Hillsboro Pk inside Vertis Green Hills.
