We had this big wide city all to ourselves, Taylor Nation.
Here at the Swift Agency, just a guy who’s getting lots of sleep lately, we’re going through Red Tour withdrawals. I had the chance to spend some extra days in Music City after the concert. One of my favorite things about Nashville is music rules, but the food is a very close second. I don’t believe I can ever stay in a city without great food. I did take in some sights too.
Wondering what to do?
Get breakfast at the Pancake Pantry. There’s a great cheeseburger at Bricktop’s. Try the barley soup at Noshville. The smoked turkey sandwich in focaccia bread at Fido is usually my first meal upon arrival. The taco royale with the mexican corn sidedish at Taco Mamacita is amazing. Buy some music at Grimey’s. Visit the Opryland hotel. Get the loveless biscuit + pearl jam ice cream at Jeni’s. Get the burger of the day at Gabby’s – it doesn’t matter which one it is, it will be the best burger ever. Go into Mike’s Ice Cream on Broadway and have a root beer float. The Broadway stroll is, of course, a must.
Easter egg: If you are at the Nashville Airport go visit the Gibson Cafe. There’s an autographed picture of Grant Mickelson on the wall.
