I'm heading to Nashville in 15 days for a half professional/half fun 5 day trip with my future legal advisor Alexa Millinger (apparently I called her Alex in a past article and so this is my apology for that editorial error). I'm going to watch her debate on something called a Moot Court. I thought it sounded like a noise a cow makes but nope... it's a real thing.
Nashville, thankfully, does not see snow very often and has much more mild temperatures in February. I'm excited to wear a sundress again and hang up my down-coat for the weekend.
If a cowboy and a showgirl had a baby, it would be Nashville. Nashville has the performance sparkle of Las Vegas mixed with the country twang of the deep South. As an acoustic bluegrass lover, I know I'll find lots of things to love about this quaint city. I also enjoy American Redneck Food (read: fried and buttered proteins). I have a feeling I'll fit right in.
Here is what I will be doing in Nashville.
I want to listen to music at the Bluebird Cafe and hopefully spot this hunky guy working the sound board:
I'll shop for boots at this bootery:
For carbohydrate loading before my tourist days, I need to have these pancakes:
...and devour one of these plates of hefty BBQ delight:
I have to go here because it's Nashville and Walk the Line was my favorite movie 7 years ago:
I'm getting a drink at one of these bars:
...and learning how to line dance at a saloon like in the new footloose movie:
I'm going to walk around Printers Alley and find this sign:
and snap pictures of this city-scape so I can instagram it for y'all (<-- I'm getting a hang of the lingo already).
