Eternity, Among Other Things

April 8, 2014



After researching things to do and places to go in Nashville, it has become clear that there will not be enough time in one vacation to do everything we’d like to do. We could vacation there for the rest of the year and it wouldn’t be enough time. An eternity might be enough time, but it’s iffy.

Likewise, I can’t even begin to cover it all in these A to Z Challenge blog posts. The hosts of the challenge recommend posts of 100 words or less to make it easier to visit each others’ blogs throughout the challenge.  You’ve probably noticed brevity isn’t my strong point.  🙂

There are so many things to see and do in and around Nashville that it’s hard to choose, so I’ll just throw out a few for each post and resist the urge to describe every detail.  Later on we’ll have the daunting task of deciding which destinations will make the vacation itinerary.

East Nashville is an area east of downtown Nashville across the Cumberland River. It is home to several historic neighborhoods, several art galleries, and a variety of one-of-a-kind shopping venues and vintage stores. Good food and live music are just as prevalent in this neighborhood as in greater Nashville.

The Ernest Tubb Record Shop is a Nashville landmark on Lower Broadway. It is a one-stop shop for country and bluegrass CDs, DVDs, LPs, books, and memorabilia. It was founded by Grand Ole Opry star Ernest Tubb in 1947.


The Elliston Place Soda Shop was opened in 1939 and is Nashville’s oldest continuously operating restaurant in the same location. It is a soda shop and more. It serves a full repertoire of Southern food (think fried chicken, biscuits and gravy, and the like) along with burgers, fries, and shakes.


Apparently the phrase “Eat Nasty” is common in Nashville. I’ve seen it quite a few times in my research, but no one actually explains what it means. The best I can surmise is that it means to eat food that tastes really good, but isn’t good for you. That’s probably Southern food in a nutshell.

I think it’s safe to say all diets will be off on this vacation!
