|Welcome to Nashville|
First night we got there we were downtown near Broadway which is Nashville Country Music Party Center, there are bright lights, honky tonk bars, tons of people having fun, lots of drinking and some real unhealthy, but tasty food. Not really our scene but fun to check off the list and move on.

That night we went to Josephine. Josephine's Chef Andy Little calls himself an American Farmhouse Chef who takes much of his influence from the Pennsylvania Dutch. Josephine is in a Neighborhood called 12 South neighborhood which is made up of quaint boutiques and tree lined streets.

dishes made our way to Opryland. It is the largest hotel non gambling in the United States with 2880 rooms and almost 1,000,000 square feet it is a country music Disneyland and over this weekend it was the host to Nashville Boogie. JoAnn is involved in the Vintage Clothing Business and her company Dixon Rand had some friends who were there doing embroidery at the vintage clothing sale so it was a chance to meet them in person and take in the Rebel Life. We were definitely not dressed for the occasion there were poodle skirts, tattooed ladies and men, two tone patent leather shoes, bluejeans with the cuff rolled up , bowling shirts, western shirts and all types of hats.

Our trip to Nashville had drawn to an end, I can tell you there is no lack of music, food, liquor and entertainment.
