TGS Travels: Nashville, TN

We recently traveled to Nashville, TN.  Nashville is a great Southern City with good people, food, and music.  Here are some things we did and ate on our latest trip to the Music City:
First thing's first, we went to Jeni's.  You can always count on us to find ice cream in any city, but Jeni's is not your average ice cream shop.  With flavors like sweet cream biscuits and peach jam, brambleberry crisp, and brown butter and almond brittle, you'll want to try every flavor.
We visited the Parthenon.  It's a full-scale replica of the original Parthenon in Athens.
We had dinner at Pinewood Social.  If we lived in Nashville, this would be a go-to spot for us.  It's a place you can go to morning, noon, and night for coffee, lunch, and drinks and bowling.  Be sure to check this one out!
Bobbie's Dairy Dip is a place to put on your list for lunch.  If you're on a diet, you may want to skip this one.  Better yet, have a cheat day and go anyway.  We had burgers, onion rings, and milkshakes.  Prepare for a nap after this lunch.
We visited our talented friend, Mickey Guyton, at Blackbird Studio to see her and get a behind-the-scenes look at her working on her debut album.  Y'all are going to be blown away by this album.  For now, you can check out her EP on iTunes!
Copper Kettle was a great place for lunch.  It's tough to beat homestyle Southern cooking!
We had coffee at The Well.  They are a non-profit missional coffee house that donates to multiple charities.  We love any business that supports a great cause.
  The Wishing Well is a place for patrons to write down their needs.  Quite often, their needs are fulfilled by other coffee shop customers or members of the community.  
We went to the Whole Foods Farmer's Market in Green Hills to support our friend, Joanna, and The Kind Cake.  If you live in Nashville, stop by the Whole Foods Farmer's Market each Thursday to get a Kind Cake.  They are ridiculously good, and they each have an act of kindness to carry out on the bottom of the wrapper.  How cool is that?  Go early, because she sells out every week!    
We had great BBQ for dinner at Martins.  They give you a free MoonPie for dessert!
We toured Yazoo Brewing Company.  We recommend it!
When you get the chance, visit Nashville!
