Nashville Travel Diary

December 15, 2018

A lot of people asked me, "Why Nashville?" or "What's in Nashville?"

Honestly, why not? I have never been to the South and Nashville seems cool. The fact that I was a huge fan of the show Nashville might have a little something to do with it. Also, Mark was working on a Google Search project and one of the ads features hotels in Nashville and he was like, "Didn't you say you want to go to Nashville?" So, that's why.

Our trip couldn't have been better! Prior to leaving, I looked at weather there and it was rainy and in the 40s, however, it was in the 60s the entire weekend we were there and it only rained on the first night! We lucked out! After checking into Aertson Kimpton, we headed straight to Martin's for some BBQs. We had the combo plate with ribs, brisket and pulled pork and my oh my it was sooo good. The brisket (so buttery and melts in your mouth) was definitely my favorite! After dinner, we walked up to Broadway to check out all the Honky Tonks and then we spent the rest of the night catching up with Mark's friends who live in Nashville.

We woke up the next morning and went to Biscuit Love for brunch (but really it was all for the BONUTS)! Donut holes made of biscuit dough, with lemon mascarpone and blueberry compote... After eating bonuts along with benny and fried chicken, we walked and shopped a little before exploring Centennial Park. Later that evening, we had dinner while listening to some local musicians at the Commodore Grill. I really wanted to go to the infamous Bluebird Cafe but both nights' shows were sold out.

Sunday morning we had brunch at Le Sel (cutest spot ever), coffee at Barista Parlor, and walked by the infamous RCA Studio before checking out of Aertson Kimpton which we stayed at our first couple of nights because we were spending our last night at Urban Cowboy (blog post on that here). We spent the afternoon at Frist Museum and coincidentally there was a "Paris 1900" exhibit (you know me, I love all things Parisian). We ended the night eating more hot fried chicken and drank more beer.

Nashville was so wonderful. Food were amazing, people were friendly, and it was so refreshing to actually get a sense of fall (we don't have that here in LA).

PS. I didn't want to post too many photos in this post, you can see everything on Instagram in my Nashville story highlight.
