Some generous friends gave me passes to next week’s Antiques and Garden Show at the Music City Center; I’m planning to go with my friend Eve. Neither of us has strong interest in antiques or the inclination to do much more than patio planters for a garden, but this event is still one of our favorite do-together activities. It’s like strolling through a lovely antique and decor mall, without the bad smells and creaky floors. A lovely way to spend a Saturday afternoon.

This year, I think we might mix it up a little and arrive a little later in the day Saturday. That way, we can stop and have a late lunch before the show (so many new restaurants opening in The Gulch and Germantown that we can try – let me know if you have a suggestion!).

One advantage for being at the Antiques and Garden Show late Saturday afternoon is that we’ll get to hear one of my favorite singers, Suzy Bogguss, perform live at the event! I feel like this is one of those “only in Nashville” moments, and I couldn’t be more excited.

Maybe I’ll see you there!

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.
