We had quite the full day after landing in Nashville (see Day 1 blog), so we slept late before going to brunch at The Southern Steak & Oyster. We sat at the bar where Mom flirted with the gentleman next to us the whole time! I felt like I was eating alone! Ha, ha, ha.
I had a perennial Nashville favorite – hot chicken – which was quite spicy and quite delicious! Residents of Music City love their hot chicken so much that they created a festival to this uniquely Nashville dish in 2007! If you’re in the city around July 4th, be sure and check it out!
After lunch, we then went to the Country Music Hall of Fame where we spent an interesting hour perusing exhibits of people we didn’t really know! Don’t get me wrong, we recognized a few names (Kenny Rogers, Dolly Parton, etc.), but there were certainly a lot of folks who were new to us (although certainly not new to country music). We enjoyed ourselves though! A few highlights:
We were exhausted from all the reading and decided to spend the rest of the afternoon on a pub crawl! A few places we recommend:
We ended our pub crawl at Puckett’s Grocery and Restaurant, a Nashville favorite featuring local fare (meat & three) and live music. Highly recommend stopping by this place (in addition to Southern above). Opening act:
