Yep! I’d just seen Nashville for the first time with my in-laws last spring, then I went back for a weekend trip in the fall with my library ladies, Lane and Erin. I say “Library Ladies” since the three of us used to work at the Athens public library. Good times!
(Man, I miss my long hair…)
Pinewood Social, a bright stylish brunch place AND bowling alley! I thought the can art was pretty cool. Not pictured: five waiters with the same hair-do, longer and flipped on top, short on the sides. Lane’s friend Kyshona met us early for breakfast and a walk around a park. Like Lane, she’s a talented singer.
Third Man Records. That animatronic monkey band! Also, Erin and I cut our own record in the Voice-o-Graph that is mostly us laugh-singing “Ba-ba-ba-ba-ba-ba-ba-basketball.” Hahaaa!
Margaritas and burritos with Rae and her husband Travis at Rosepepper Cantina. I’d been reading Rae’s blog for a couple years so it was fun to meet her in real life! She and Travis are fellow animal lovers with great taste in movies and roadside attractions. PS: They recently became cool parents.
Barista Parlor with Callie! I love meeting weird, unique ladies.
And of course, we library ladies had to pay a visit to Nashville’s library. I’d checked it out with Dean but it was cool to spend more time there. The whole children’s section is super fun. There’s a Wayne White/student collab sculpture where you can crank around the eyeballs.
More of Lane’s fun, talented pals. She’s got a lot of ’em.
Last view: the jade art deco men’s room at the Hermitage Hotel. A feast for the eyes if ever there was one. Until next time, Nashville!
