Tour Guide Tuesday: Downtown Nashville Bachelorette Party

I get asked all the time for Nashville Bachelorette Party or Nashville Girls or Couples Weekend itinerary ideas.  Look no further, I've compiled a few of my favorites here for you.



Friday Arrival:

Start by checking into your AirBNB or hotel and get freshened up to spend a night out on the town.  Nashville has so many fantastic restaurants, a few of my favorites are Husk, The Southern or Virago.  Book a table early, Nashville's dining scene is red hot.  After dinner, grab a low key drink at the Oak Bar or Patterson House.







Saturday:

Pedal tavern is where the party's at!  Schedule reservations ahead of time to ensure there's plenty of room for your party.



After your pedal tour of the city, take the Green Line to the Gulch to do a bit of shopping.  There you can peruse Urban Outfitters, Lucchese and Blush.

Once you catch your 2nd wind, grab your cowboy boots and head to Acme Feed and Seed for dinner and live music.  The food is tasty and the live music is always on point.  This should get your night of honky tonkin' off to the right start.  From there head to Paradise Park, Tootsies and Tin Roof and leave your mark on Music City!



Sunday:

Start off with Brunch at Germantown Cafe or Tavern.  Then take a walk through Bicentenial Park or check out the Country Music Hall of Fame.

Five on Friday

Long time, no see friends!

No time for excuses, let's just enjoy reconnecting :)

1. I have been working diligently to get my real estate business in full swing.  I'm proud to say I have a closing under my belt, have all of the tools and apps I need, and my website is about a week from go-live.  Here is a sample of my website inspiration.  ***Photos by Blake Brooks Photography




2.  I loved American Sniper, it was captivating and though-provoking.  It was a great reminder of how thankful we should be for our troops and the sacrifices they make everyday.  
*Mom-probably not one for you to go see.

3.  A recent controversial ban was just placed on the Nashville Farmers Market.  According to the market's director, Tasha Kennard, "Across the country, there are really two different kinds of farmers' market.  There are producer-only markets and there are markets where we call it, 'anything goes.'"  The Nashville Farmers Market has decided to ban re-sold products.  

In English, no longer can the vendors go buy produce at Wal-mart, bring it to the Farmer's Market and advertise it as home grown  Even though we all knew that it wasn't home grown, because they didn't even peel the Wal-mart produce stickers off!  

Sweet Home Nashville Approved.


4.  In other Nashville news, the Nashville Sounds released their new logo to match their new stadium this week.  They did release a new logo in October, but no one liked the orange, so they reverted to red.  Also, rumor on the street is, Ozzie will be replaced with a "hot chicken".



5.  Finally, you can pull your AMP yes! and AMP no! signs our of your front yard.  The project has officially died.  Karl Dean is a visionary, and although he can see major traffic issues about to plague Music City, there aren't enough supporters in the pipeline to keep driving the project forward after his term ends this year.  The worst part of the story, you will have to find another topic for your, "You're so Nashville if...." submission this year.
