Total Basset Case: A Weekend In Music City

Apr 29, 2014

A Weekend In Music City

This past weekend Mister and I traveled to Nashville with Katie and Derek and our friends Emily and Nick and had the BEST time. 
Live music, perfect weather, delicious food, good friends - what more could you ask for?

Friday night we went to dinner at The Pharmacy and I am not even kidding when I tell you that I had, hands down, the best burger of my life.
Burger. Country ham. Friend egg.
I'm still drooling.
Their bier garden was pretty amazing too but, seriously, the burger.
After dinner we headed to the famous Bluebird Cafe for some live music.  We did not see the cast from Nashville there but it was still a really, really great show! 
Saturday could not have been a more beautiful or fun day!
We started out with brunch, caught of a bit of the Nashville half and full marathon going on and spent the rest of the day going to different bars and listening to great live music and enjoying the beautiful weather.  
Dinner Saturday night was almost as good as Friday night.
We ate at The Southern and we all went all out.
I had the chicken friend chicken, mac and cheese and goat cheese butternut squash.  My lanta.
And a blackberry moonshine sweet tea to drink.  I don't think you could get much southern.  
Mister chowed down on a huge burger with homemade pimento cheese.  Again, southern fabulousness. 

And as a side note, we used Lyft quite a bit while we were down there and loved our experience every time.
Have you guys heard of Lyft? It's very similar to Uber.  And very, very similar to a cab. 
But much cleaner, safer, faster, cheaper and all around more enjoyable.  Plus they give you bottled water and jolly ranchers, you can't beat that. 
P.s. - Cincy ladies - Lyft just launched here last week! Whoo! 

And that was our boot scootin' boogeyin' weekend in a nut shell!
We can't wait to go back again and explore even more!

LOVE all these pictures! I haven't had a chance to look at all of mine yet but looking at yours got me all excited again.

A big YES to everything you said. Loved the company, the city, live music, and food. (and Lyft due to the free water and jolly ranchers of course).

Katie said...

Nashville is on our list of go-to spots! Now we need to bump it up on our list because my mouth is watering!

Wow it looks like you guys had the best time! I've never been there and I'm dying to go (HUGE country music fan!)

The Lady Okie said...

I've always wanted to try a burger with an egg on it! It always sounds so good. Glad you had a fun weekend!

Kayla MKOY said...

I'm so happy you got to take this weekend trip :) I LOVE Nashville and am feeling bittersweet that my best friend is moving there in a few months. Luckily I'll have a place to visit, but I will miss her like crazy!

Elizabeth said...

So fun! You're making me hungry with all that burger talk.

Unknown said...

Glad that you all had fun! Also glad to know about Lyft. Please tell more in future blogs when it starts up in Cincy.

Shelley said...

your weekend sounds wonderful. when i saw on insta you guys were down there i was curious to see if you ran the half marathon (which i was going to say you are crazyy).
i tried to convince austin that we should stop in nashville for the night on sat since we were headed home from la, but with the marathon that weekend i figured a cheap hotel room would be non-existent. but you've definitely got me itching to plan a trip to nashville after this post!

Anne said...

Fun, fun! Loved seeing your recap and Katie's too. And now I'm inspired both to get to Nashville and to have a leave baby with the grandparents weekend :)

Jill @ Bluegrass Belle said...

Looks like a fun Nashville weekend! :) Lyft just launched here in Lexington too (probably the same day as Cinci). Now I'm craving a Jolly Rancher ;)

I haven't been to Nashville in awhile and between your pics and hearing about the fun some friends had for the half marathon I think it's time for a trip back. Glad you had a good weekend!

I ate at The Southern too in Nashville and it was just awesome! Looks like so much fun!
