Day 39: Nashville Off Day

There are few things that I truly appreciate on this trip – and one of them is  a bed.  It has been about 3 weeks since I’ve slept in a bed, and wow – what a difference.  We were tempted to get another night in the hotel, but instead, we ventured out to quite the interesting breakfast destination.

Our hotel concierge sent us to a “greasy” restaurant called Monelle’s.  It was far from the greasy diner experience we so desperately needed, but it was amazing nonetheless.  In fact, it was so great, that former Titans (and Buckeye) RB Eddie George was dining with us.  The mothers day morning wait was well over an hour – but they had a fantastic courtyard complete with free apetizers to stave of our grumbling stomachs.

The dining experience was quite unique – and was in a group.  The 4 of us were seated with 8 other strangers, and shared a southern breakfast family style.  It was really interesting, and the food was fantastic.  We completely stuffed ourselves, and then met up with the rest of the group.

Katie and I ventured out to explore Nashville.  We enjoyed our mandatory bloody mary and after we were brave enough to go to the Country Music Hall of Fame.  Unfortunately a few of the rooms were closed due to flood damage.  The museum motivated us to explore the bars again for a bar crawl in search of the best country music.  It turned out to be one of the better afternoons on the trip.
