music city series: rosemary & beauty queen

The fact I haven’t talked about Rosemary & Beauty Queen yet is baffling. The first time I went to Rosemary was in January 2020, right before Covid changed our world. Rosemary was the neighborhood house bar of East Nashville where everyone I knew hung out. Now, with the increasing number of Bachelor and Bachelorette partiesContinue reading “music city series: rosemary & beauty queen”

music city series: la jackson

Last Friday, I made plans to catch up with my friend, Celeste! After telling her that I had never been to la jackson, the rooftop bar of the Thompson Hotel, she insisted that be where we go. Once I got off work, I hopped in the shower, did my makeup, dried my hair, and putContinue reading “music city series: la jackson”

music city series: Broadway

As a local, I generally try to avoid downtown, especially during the busy seasons, but Sunday was an exception. Since I started working downtown, my coworkers have continuously said, “Michelle, come out with us,” and I finally did it. Sunday, I got off work around 3 pm and headed to Broadway for an afternoon ofContinue reading “music city series: Broadway”

music city series: Nashville update

Did you think it’d come so soon? It has now been a week since the capacity restrictions and mask mandate were dropped in Nashville. When I left work last weekend, it was like Covid never happened. Broadway was flooded with people on sidewalks and standing in the middle of the road while lights were green.Continue reading “music city series: Nashville update”

music city series: Arrington Vineyards

For a girl who doesn’t like wine, I had so much fun at a winery. A few weeks ago, we celebrated my friend Taner’s Bachelor Party at Arrington Vineyards and had a full day of wine, clothing malfunctions, and laughs. Arrington Vineyards has been open since 2007 and is about 40 minutes from Nashville. YouContinue reading “music city series: Arrington Vineyards”

music city series: downtown update

This past weekend, Mayor John Cooper lifted the mask mandate for outdoor settings, while still recommending them when social distancing isn’t possible. As I walked downtown on Monday afternoon, I was happy to see that approximately half the downtown patrons were still wearing masks on the streets. Masks still have to be worn inside restaurantsContinue reading “music city series: downtown update”

music city series: Old Glory

Before Halloween, some of my girlfriends and I tried out Old Glory, which is a one-of-a-kind bar here in Nashville. Never did I expect to walk into a dungeon-like room and find music, drinks, and laughter. The history behind the space is unique. With a smokestack standing tall, Old Glory sits in the former boilerContinue reading “music city series: Old Glory”

music city series: Stateside Kitchen

Earlier this month, we celebrated my roommate for her 22nd birthday. Because of COVID-19 and the current restrictions set in Nashville, we decided to do a girl’s dinner at Stateside Kitchen in the Dream Hotel. After enjoying a few drinks and a meal, we stopped to take a few pictures at ”The Climax” neon lightContinue reading “music city series: Stateside Kitchen”

music city series: Burger Republic

About a month ago, my grandparents were able to take a trip from North Carolina to visit me here in Nashville. Whenever they come to town, we try to find the best food to eat. Last year when they visited, we ate at one of my favorite burger joints, Burger Republic, and this year weContinue reading “music city series: Burger Republic”

music city series: Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams

Although Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams is not based out of Nashville, it has been a staple to my experience in Nashville. Before I moved to Nashville for college, my family and I went to Jeni’s and I fell in love with their Milkiest Chocolate flavor. I try to stay away from ice cream as muchContinue reading “music city series: Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams”
