This is the House of Representatives.
And this is where the Senate sits.
Ryman Theatre, home of the Grand Ole Opry and what we all think of when we think of Nashville.
Continuing on our 15000 step day, we headed back to the waterfront. btw all this without a beer :) To think in one day, you could see a hockey game, an NFL game, a country concert and a symphony all within walking distance of each other. It is an amazing city to wander around in with a good pair of shoes.
Back to the hotel for a break before we start again. The plan was an early dinner, a couple of shows and then bed early to set off on our 12 hour drive to Texas. Plan didn't work out quite as we planned. There was just too much going on in the city.
Merchants. Btw if you ever go there you can be entertained all night sitting in the booth by the window. She was very entertaining, dealing with all sorts of people. We thought she was only about 15 but was actually 24. Her poise dealing with an amazing number of drunk young men who wanted to dance a jig with her. One young man not only danced with her, hugged her and then gave her $50 before his buddies led him away. :) It was one of our more entertaining nights ever.
Everywhere was standing room only. The police were out in full force. Even the fire department were parked at street corners making sure everyone was safe. The girls on the bicycle pedal vehicles loved driving by the firemen, lots of cheering was done as they high-fived the firemen. After dinner we bar hopped for a wee bit and saw some amazing acts and met some amazing people. Whether you are young or old, celebrating a bachelor or bachelorette party, a special birthday party or a weekend with your spouse, Nashville is definitely the place to be.
