Honky Tonkin' in Nashville

Took a short jaunt down to Nashville with Em, Nick and my dad - who invited himself at the last minute. We were so glad he came since he kept us laughing with his dry sense of humor all weekend.

Nick is in the Army in Columbus, Georgia, so when I saw that Dave Matthews was coming to Nashville, I mapquested the drive for Nick and with just 4.5 hours it seemed like a no-brainer. Em, dad and I flew in Friday afternoon and immediately had one of the top five hamburgers in the world at Rotier's according to the Nashville policeman, quoting Jimmy Buffett. Nick showed up after midnight, but we still had a great time at the local country dive bars that line the streets downtown.

We went back to Rotier's Saturday morning for the biscuits and gravy for $2.25. The Country Music Marathon was going on the same weekend, so there were crazy marathon runners everywhere. We hung out downtown, shopping (at the one and only shop that we found in Nashville - somebody get these people some retail), eating and drinking. Then back to the hotel for some naps before the concert.

The view of Vanderbilt Stadium from our sweet hotel room. I could stalk the tour bus.
