Rob and I had our first night away with no kids in a very long time this weekend. I picked Rob up at the Nashville airport. We checked into our hotel. OK it was really a motel, but it was recently remodelled and quite nice.
Then we went to the Loveless Cafe outside of Nashville. Absolutely worth the little bit of drive. Rob had the fried chicken, greens and fried okra. I had the pulled pork on corn hoe cakes with homemade creamed corn and carmel sweet potatoes. Fantastic food! And not bad prices either. If you do make it to Nashville and decide to go there, be ready for a 45 minute wait for a table. They have several shops in their "motel" area to keep you occupied until your pager goes off for your table.
Next we went to downtown Nashville and walked around. We danced at the Wild Horse Saloon and had a line dancing lesson. We also walked by the Country Music Hall of Fame and the Music City Walk of Fame.
On Sunday we got up and drove down to Lynchburg and toured the Jack Daniel's Distillery. That was very enjoyable and the drive was beautiful too. Side note, if you want to buy a commemorative bottle of Jack while you are there, don't go on a Sunday. We had lunch at a BBQ place in town. The food was decent and prices were very reasonable.
We had a great time. Here are pictures.
This is the only building standing that was on the property in Jack Daniels Day. There is a safe in this office building that Jack kicked when he couldn't get it opened. This would end up being the death of him. He ended up with gangreen (sp?) in they leg that he injured. In our day today, they probably would have realized he had diabetes problems.
