I am a planner. It’s in my nature to spend almost as much time thinking about the best way to spend an (evening/holiday/weekend/vacation) as I actually do on the activity itself. I enjoy the planning process. I also enjoy the results, whether the planning was my own or someone else’s.

In recent years, I’ve developed an informal following among my friends and professional colleagues. People ask me what I’ve got planned for an upcoming weekend – or seek advice about good activities for showing visiting friends or relatives around the Nashville/Middle Tennessee area. Even though there are other sites with event calendars, I think followers of my blog can expect some extra insight into goings-on that would suit ‘most anyone seeking to experience the diversity of fun and interesting things to do around town.

The fact that I am posting this on New Year’s Eve – about New Year’s Eve – is not something I’m especially proud of. Even though there are lots of tempting, fun music-related things going on in Nashville for New Years Eve (including the Bash on Broadway and fun concerts at The Ryman, City Winery, 3rd & Lindsley, The Sutler and other favorite venues), we’re planning a potluck Italian dinner with friends and neighbors. Plenty of good food and wine – I’m contributing homemade meatballs and sauce from my freezer. We’ll toast the New Year at midnight and almost immediately disband. There are parties to attend, and bowl games to watch, on January 1!

Have fun tonight, and be safe!

Sounds Like Fun - Nashville is a labor of love - my love for Music City, Middle Tennessee, and experiencing the best that our area has to offer. In recent years, I've developed an informal following among my friends and professional colleagues. People ask me what I've got planned for an upcoming weekend – or seek advice about good activities for showing visiting friends or relatives around the Nashville/Middle Tennessee area. Even though there are other sites with event calendars, I think followers of my blog can expect some extra insight into goings-on that would suit ‘most anyone seeking to experience the diversity of fun and interesting things to do around town. I'm always on the look-out for good places to walk my dog. Maggie is a 10-year-old mixed breed shelter dog who still becomes comically ecstatic when she sees me pick up a leash. She's my inspiration to start a page featuring great dog walks around Nashville.
