Annie Klaver took a leap of faith after being burned out working on Music Row. The outdoors and water were calling her name.

From there it has grown into River Queen Adventures, now offering several different trip options and a Pedal Pontoon! Hear all about her story on this week's episode.

Thanks for all your valuable insight into real estate investing through the Real Estate Espresso podcast. I was curious your thoughts about investing in an apartment building right now. Do you think it’s a strategic time to buy since there seems to be low demand for living in an apartment with the recent pandemic subsequently lowering an apartment building’s value therefore getting a better deal? It is so difficult finding a single-family property that you can justify buying as an investor because they are so expensive right now. Since single-family properties have a high comparative market analysis driving up value, do large multi family properties have a low income value right now? I am assuming that people will slowly begin to return to apartments and with credit being so cheap and possibly having little demand for apartments it might be a formula for a good investment. What are your thoughts? Thanks! Allan, This is a great question. I’m going to reframe the question somewhat to make a couple of distinctions. As worded, your question is a little too general. In some ways it seems like you’re asking if there are bargains to be found in the apartment market. Part of your question is focused on choosing between investing in apartments versus single family homes for rentals. I don’t view the tradeoff as a yield related tradeoff. They’re fundamentally different products. Real Estate always is hyperlocal. It is true that there is a high vacancy rate in high rise apartments in New York, San Francisco, Seattle, and Toronto. These situations are temporary in some cases, and point to a problem in others. Determining whether the investment conditions are favourable depends on three main factors. The local submarket conditions The local boots on the ground team you have performing your project management and property management The specifics of the deal. Your question is an over-simplification of the issues which need to be looked at in a more holistic manner. If you pick a market like NW Austin or Downtown Nashville which are undergoing significant growth, then one set of market dynamics are at play. Demand has exceeded supply by a wide margin and home affordability is an issue. This is creating increased demand for rental product. Eventually, supply may catch up to meet the demand, and could possibly surpass the demand. A deep analysis of the local submarkets is essential to determine the current supply / demand situation and to forecast what is possible in the 5-10 year horizon in terms of supply and demand. There is no question that there is a lot of institutional money chasing too few opportunities which is creating demand for well managed stabilized product. Investors in search of yield have bid up the prices for these stabilized apartment complexes. Over time, the high quality assets have been snapped up and prices have increased for lower quality assets as money went in search of yield. I personally would not invest in markets with shrinking population. That was true pre-pandemic and it’s still true today. If you do choose to invest in a market like, say NYC or Chicago, be aware that you’re making a bet about market trends reversing direction from the past several years. Chicago has lost population consistently over the past five years for reasons that could be considered underlying and systemic. There are issues with crime, high taxes, anemic employment growth, all of which have contributed to people leaving the city in search of greater opportunity. Our criteria has hardly changed at all over the past 5 years. What has changed are the underlying market conditions. Some areas have become more favourable for investment, and others have become less favourable for investment.

Adam James Carson, a face known to many all across Nashville, came into the studio to gift our ears with his much sought after beautiful voice. Hailing from New Jersey, Adam moved to Nashville several years ago to pursue a career in music. Early in life he started in musical theatre, somehow worked his way into a few commercials, then after college immediately set out to take over Nashville, TN and make a name for himself. He joined a few bands here and there, but it wasn't until he took full control over his personal music career that something clicked. 4 years now he has been playing music full time, amassing the reputation of having the "voice of an angel." HIs new single "Shut Your Mouth And Hurt Me" recently dropped on Apple Music and Spotify, with more singles on the way in the near future. We had a blast with Adam, and damnit if his songs don't just have this way of getting stuck in your head...

Got a lot of things that are going on and, on today’s podcast, we have the privilege of speaking with Bryan Deese, muralist and street artist. Bryan, welcome to the podcast! Bryan Deese 1:03 Hello! Thanks for having me. John Haggard 1:04 Glad to have you! Before we learn about what a muralist and street artist is and does, tell us a little about you. Are you from Gallatin? Bryan Deese 1:14 I’m from Nashville. I grew up in Nashville, kind of all over that area, and then have been up in Gallatin now for about 10 years. John Haggard 1:22 So from Nashville. Where did you go to school in high school here? Bryan Deese 1:27 Well, I went to two schools. I went to Franklin Road Academy in South Nashville, with my area. And then I graduated from Hillsboro High School in the Green Hills area of Nashville, John Haggard 1:39 The Burros, I think they call that, or something like that. Bryan Deese 1:41 Absolutely, full of pride. John Haggard 1:42 Yeah. Was that a good football team when you were there? Bryan Deese 1:48 Not great when I was there. They have gotten a lot better with the coach they have. Fitzgerald has had a lot of success and they won a state championship after I left. But the Gallatin handed it to them pretty well the last season. John Haggard 2:01 So a muralist and street artist, I guess maybe, before we really dive into that, how would you define that term? If somebody says, “Well, what is a muralist and a street artist?” Bryan Deese 2:13 Yeah, mural artist mural list is anyone who’s painting murals and that could include indoors or outdoors. Street art is more specifically refers to the outdoors and painting, you know, on the streets where people walking, driving can see the work. John Haggard 2:33 From Nashville, how did you wind up in Gallatin? Bryan Deese 2:37 Well, I was living in Madison in 2007. And the recession hit and Madison got really shady there. I kind of starting to have a family and looking for greener pastures and found them at little Northeastern Gallatin and moved out here and have loved it and really embrace this community and just enjoy a lot of things about it. And so that’s kind of what brought us out here. John Haggard 3:05 And when you moved to Gallatin, what was the very first thing you did in terms of employment? Bryan Deese 3:09 At that point, I went to school for graphic design. So I had worked professionally as a graphic designer for years out of college, and I went to the University of Tennessee, in Knoxville. John Haggard 3:24 Go, Orange! Bryan Deese 3:24 Yeah, definitely go Vols for life. Did the graphic design thing for a long time, always kept painting on the side. My kind of painting was graffiti. I came up kind of doing that for fun and adventure. And through that had just learned to paint big and self-taught and through friends picked up a lot of other mural techniques, and just kept painting and painting. And that’s what I was doing though, when I was first arriving in Gallatin. I was still doing graphic design full time and murals on the side. John Haggard 4:02 So how did you actually get into painting murals? Is it something when you were a little boy and you said, Wow, that’s a cool thing. Look at that over there. How did, you know, where did this the artistry, I guess, come out? Bryan Deese 4:15 Well, it was an evolution for sure. But one of the first things in art that really struck me was a mural and it was by a famous Nashville artist Red Grooms. So he’s a big-time pop artist, and this was the Tennessee State Museum was doing a retrospective, maybe its 30th or 40th anniversary of, you know, kind of his career launch. And I went there on a field trip and he created a whole environment that you entered in and I was just blown away. You went down some escalators and there were murals on the sidewalls and then sculpture that you walked into and entered and just took over the environment but in a fun, playful way. It wasn’t a way that would go over a kid’s head, even though if you look at his work, there’s nothing childish about it. It is professional and incredible through and through, every aspect. But it struck me – that stayed with me. And I followed other contemporaries of his, like Myles Maillie and Norris Hall. These are other Nashville painters that were a bit illustrative, worked big. I saw them doing murals around. They work very colorful, and with a black outline. And then, through skateboarding and music, at some point, in high school, I was introduced to graffiti art. Bryan Deese 5:41 And it kind of had all of those same things. It was big, colorful, illustrative, blackout lines, and it had some adventure mixed in. So, I was drawn to that right away. And it was also based on typography and that was the graphic design side of me. As a kid who, you know, designed my own baseball cards and designed my own sneakers. Yeah, so those worlds kind of combined with some fun and adventure. It’s what you’re looking for as a teenager. And I followed that route for a while, and there was never a thought that this is something you’d make money on. But I didn’t just quit. I just took it up a notch or two, and started doing portraits, started doing bigger, more objective things and less of the letter-based graffiti stuff. More what you would consider street art, and just elevating it a little bit as I went along. And eventually, at some point, I just decided this is what I’m going to do this is paying as much or more than the graphic design and I’m going to jump out there and actually call myself an artist. And… John Haggard 6:57 Wow! Yeah, because there’s that phrase that we all hear -starving artist. Great work but a starving artist. And that, you may have starved a little bit maybe but you know you didn’t have that job you said. So you were doing this on the side and then it like as you said you just finally the dollars were there. Bryan Deese 7:14 Yeah and I absolutely had that instilled in me from my parents, too. Maybe not so much my parents but just society as a whole is like it’s a very hard thing to earn a living at – and it is! And so, yeah, I’d always heard starving associated with the word artists. So I look to do something that would fulfill my creative chops but would pay the rent. And then on the side, like I said, I was always doing this stuff that I never thought there’d be an income that it was just fun. Like a lot of people they don’t get into bass fishing, because they think there’s a future in bass fishing, they just enjoy the hobby. So that’s kind of how I approached it, but at some point what I was doing caught on. And a lot of that’s probably based on social sharing online. But people were coming to me to “can you paint big?”. And so yeah, it was a slow transition from full-time graphic design to full-time mural artist with a lot of crossover years, where, you know, in between. John Haggard 8:18 You know, I heard this motivational speaker Tony Robbins, you’re familiar with him? He says, follow your passion, and the money will follow you. And it sounds like you had a lot of passion and you thought, Well, you know, I’m going to try to make this thing work. Maybe it will, maybe it won’t. I’ve got a backup plan. But nonetheless, the passion really seemed to drive you would you say speaking of passion and inspiration, you mentioned Red Grooms? Would he be someone you would consider a major inspiration was to you that got you to the next level or who would you consider that to be? Bryan Deese 8:50 He was a big one because what I didn’t know when I was eight or nine years old on that field trip – well, I wasn’t even there. It was in high school who I figured out who I’d been looking at on that field trip. And it was kind of, “Oh, Red Grooms graduated from Hillsboro High School.” So then that all of a sudden kind of did click with me that you could do it. People from your high school walk in the same halls or you’re reading about them in art history books, you know, it’s not that far-fetched. So and then, as far as the street art stuff goes, there were some conversations I had and people that, artists that I really respected, who came along and did the same job that I had done two years previously. For example, Bonnaroo, I painted some fences at Bonnaroo. And two years later, one of my favorite artists, Steve Powers, he came and painted the fences at Bonnaroo. And so that made me think “Okay, you’re on the right trajectory.” At that point. I was still doing graphic design also. And when a door would open like Bonnaroo would call and say “We’ve got these miles of linear fence. Got any ideas on how to paint something cool?” I’d walk through those doors, I would execute and somewhere in the middle of it, I panic, you know? How am I gonna get this done? You know, I’ve bitten off more than I could chew, but you just stay the course and, and work hard and get through that door and shut it behind you. Hopefully, you know, it worked out well. Bonnaroo did. And then you hope the next door you’re ready for the next door in front of you. And you just keep going. And that’s what I’ve done. John Haggard 10:35 What are some of the more exciting projects that you’ve worked on recently? Bryan Deese 10:39 2019 I had some really cool projects. First and foremost, the NFL Draft came to Nashville. And the NFL Network contacted me to do some murals on the side of Tootsies, the famous Honky Tonk on Broadway and on the back of Honky Tonk Central. And then NFL films recorded it. And it was the very first thing they aired a little two-minute package, right as their draft coverage kicked off. John Haggard 11:11 Wow, that was you? Bryan Deese 11:13 Yeah, and then they shared it with their social. So that was a really cool one. Bonnaroo Music Festival. I painted their iconic fountain the past year. And so those were two really cool ones. I did two really great murals in Gallatin that I’m proud of. So, and some really good work for the Country Music Hall of Fame. They’re one of my steady clients that I do, you know, anywhere from eight to 10 murals a year for. John Haggard 11:44 So in Gallatin, where are those murals? Bryan Deese 11:47 Well, I’ve got three murals in Gallatin. One is in Thompson Park, which is right next to the skate park. And it is a mural of Ray Underhill Jr. and Ray was Tennessee’s first professional skateboarder, and he grew up in Hendersonville in Gallatin. When he packed his car up and drove out to California to chase the dream, he was living in Gallatin. And sadly, Ray passed away from cancer. And so that’s a memorial a thank you to Ray Underhill. And then on the side of Chubbs Sports Bar, and Old Soul Tattoo, I’ve got two murals, they actually face each other. One is a history of the trains and trolleys in Gallatin. And then the other is about the 1970 basketball game between the segregated high schools at the time, Gallatin High School and Union High School. And that’s an incredibly interesting story. q2A`There’s a book about it, maybe plans to do a movie. But those are the three murals that I’ve got in Gallatin right now, and hopefully, we’ll do some more soon. John Haggard 13:07 So Brian, where do you get your ideas on what to paint? Bryan Deese 13:11 Well, a lot of that comes down to how much creative control I’ve got on each project. Some of the projects that I do, I don’t have any creative control, or here’s an album cover, we want to paint it on this wall, and it’ll stay there for three months. And I execute those and I keep it going. When I’ve got complete creative control, and that’s when I’m the most excited on a project as any creative would be. And when I’ve got complete creative control, I like to paint about history that’s very specific to the location I’m painting at. So you know, Ray Underhill next to the skatepark in Gallatin, that makes sense because of the history of who Ray Underhill is to skateboarding in Gallatin. The trains and the trolleys, the location of that Old Soul Tattoo, the wall right next to the Palace Theater, the back entrance, it’s in between the railroad tracks and then where the trolley tracks were on just down the alley. So I like to paint about history because I’m a history buff. And so if you let me paint about anything, it’s going to be generally a giant portrait about history that’s very specific to the location I’m painting. Bryan Deese 13:14 How would you say the support has been in Gallatin for what you’re doing? Bryan Deese 14:35 It’s really been incredible, especially the mayor’s office. When I approached them initially about the Ray Underhill project and the train with the train and trolley mural, the codes would not allow for murals in Gallatin. So we started with the Ray Underhill project because it was actually in the parks. It’s a park property that lays a little bit outside of the jurisdiction of code so they didn’t need to change the codes to actually execute that one. So then we’re able to show some community support and how murals can impact a community positively. And then with that, they took that effort and energy and passed and changed the Gallatin City codes as far as murals go. So now, and then they applied for and got a grant for me to paint the train mural and the basketball mural. So, and then the public at large has been incredibly supportive. Anytime I was painting, I had great conversations with you know, citizens and passers-by and met a lot of great people. In all three of those cases, anytime I was painting, I met a lot of great people. I met Ray Underhill’s family, too. They still live Portland, his parents and brothers, and siblings, and that’s really the most impactful to me is the people I meet when I’m painting. John Haggard 16:11 Yeah. And you know, you mentioned, of course, Gallatin where you live now, Bonnaroo, Downtown Nashville. Do you travel the country or is your work primarily in this area? Bryan Deese 16:22 Well, I do travel. So I head to Florida and Atlanta. There were probably the spots I hit the most. When I was younger, I traveled a lot more. You know, I’ve been to Europe and all over the West Coast and the Northeast Chicago, you know, St. Louis, Kansas City, a lot of cities, painting, and that’s really when it was just a hobby. My professional work though, my home base is Nashville and that’s where the bulk of my work is for sure. John Haggard 16:52 If somebody said, “I want you to paint a portrait of me.” Do you do work for individuals or is it more like what we’ve been talking about? Bryan Deese 17:02 Well, I absolutely could be commissioned. Most of my work now is of a commercial nature. And I’m not exactly cheap, but I absolutely take commissions and I’m worth every penny. John Haggard 17:17 All right, well, there you go. There you go. Bryan, Deese, everybody, we’re talking to. Muralist and street artists. What would you say, Brian, is your favorite painting that you’ve ever done out of all of them? Bryan Deese 17:29 Well, one that was dear to me was a Johnny Cash mural that was in downtown Nashville, that my friends and I would actually paint the wall very first in May in 1998, with like a surrealist desert kind of scene. But then, when Johnny Cash passed away, immediately we painted a memorial mural for him. And that was in 2003. We redid the mural in 2012 whether it just has taken its toll. A lot of people so new to the area, they don’t realize that the area of downtown Nashville flooded in 2010. And that really took a right toll on that mural. Um, yeah. So we redid that and in 2012 and it was perfectly located downtown. It was a joke. It was the last of a little one-story block buildings in you know, south of Broadway. And it was on American Idol and National Geographic Channel and Macy’s campaign, it just got a lot of traction. It was on all the Titans home games when it was a local CBS broadcast it was kind of just became part of their Stock B roll footage. So, unfortunately, like I said it was the last of but it’s unfortunately got knocked down last year. And some of my friends from the Country Music Hall of Fame, pulled aside some of the, the blocks of some of it, and I’ve saved them. But it was only a matter of time that property was worth too much to just be a block little block building. So now it’s like a two or three-story bar. John Haggard 19:17 So for 2020 as we enter the New Year, what big plans do you have? What’s going on anything local, more regional work. What’s happening? Bryan Deese 19:25 Well, one thing I’m really excited, I’m almost hesitant to talk much about it because I’m very much in the initial phases and it’s year one, but I’m going to do a little mural festival in Gallatin at the end of May. And what a mural festival is, is pretty simple. It’ll be anywhere from three to six, this year I’m just kind of starting small to get going on, but three to six murals being worked on by different artists at the same time over the course of a weekend. So you can come in, it’ll be roughly in the same location, so you could come and park your car and walk around and watch these different artists execute the murals. And, so the mayor’s office again, they’re being extremely supportive. And that’s something I’m planning. And then I’m filling up my calendar for 2020 and got some really great jobs and really excited to keep working with the Country Music Hall of Fame. They allow me to paint the icons of Nashville, and that excites me for sure. And hopefully, some other great ones. Some of them, they’re not exactly under contract yet, so I don’t want to jinx them by talking about them. But I’ve got a lot of really great projects coming for 2020. But the most – the thing I’m the most excited about is the mural festival. I’m going to start in Gallatin. John Haggard 20:51 And that’s in May, you said? Bryan Deese 20:52 End of May. So and I’m still on the date. I’m still waiting to hear back from the mayor that we’re not competing with any other long-standing Gallatin events that might conflict with it. But right now they said, it looks like the calendar is pretty open. So I think that’s going to be our date. John Haggard 21:13 So Brian, what would you say your favorite thing about living in Gallatin is? Bryan Deese 21:19 Oh man, there’s so many great things. I love where my kids go to school Sumner Academy. They really care about educating kids. And also just having socially the skills my kids are learning there are second to none. I love Gallatin Square. I like to go down to the square especially in the spring in the summer. When the flowers are the flower pots are out and you’ve got the splashes of pinks and purples violets around and I love to go to Jim Bose records on the square and pick out some old vinyl, maybe go to Phillies on the square and get a funnel Cake they’re delicious and play some games with the kids on my studio in Gallatin. It’s right by the bowling alley and bought my kids and bowling shoes and we go bowling a lot. That’s a lot of fun. And right there, too, I love Old Glory restaurant that’s kind of our greasy spoon diner and definitely love being a regular at all these spots around Gallatin. It’s pretty much everywhere I go now I’m a regular they don’t know what I do. They just know my face. John Haggard 22:28 What would you say of all the things that you have going on in 2020, If you can talk about it, is the most, I guess you would say, the most exciting thing that’s going to happen or that that you’re going to do or that really excites you the most for 2020? Bryan Deese 22:43 Well, I’m hoping to do the Bonnaroo fountain again, I’m trying to turn that into an annual contract. It used to be that they would hire an artist that would come in and they would design and paint the fountain and it would be totally separate from how the festival looks. Now they’re having the designer who designs the overall look for the festival that year as far as ticketing and marketing and all of that. They also design the fountain, but they don’t necessarily have the skills to execute the painting and Bonnaroo doesn’t even want them to have to worry about that. So I always call that my summer art camp anytime I go and spend a week out at Bonnaroo. I come back dark, suntanned, and about 10 pounds lighter. John Haggard 23:34 So let me ask you this one question. What would you say, Brian, the one thing that people don’t know about you, but they would be really surprised to find out about you. Bryan Deese 23:47 I’m big on the number two and things the power of two. So two times two is four times two is eight times two is 16 times two, 32. And doing all kinds of weird little number things in my head, that all break down to number in twos and the power of twos. So that’s some Rain Man autistic kind of side of me a little bit. But it fascinates me even myself is why do I need to stop the pump at 1616 or whatever I’m pumping, you know? So that’s something that is weird. And not a lot of people would know. John Haggard 24:31 If somebody wants to get in contact with you, Brian, what’s the best way to connect? Bryan Deese 24:37 My website is bryandeese.art. And it’s a really simple little site just with some images that slide through. And then there’s two buttons. One is a email that goes directly to my inbox, and the other takes you to my Instagram account which is more of a rolling portfolio of my work. So emailing me through my website is really the best way. bryandeese.art John Haggard 25:05 All right, and we know Bryan is, in your case B-R-Y-A-N. John Haggard 25:10 That’s right. John Haggard 25:11 Got it . Well, that’s Bryan Deese everybody, muralist and street artist on today’s Miracle Ford podcast.

With more than 100 makers from all over the South, it truly is one of the greatest celebrations of makers, food, music, and drink all in one place.
Think of the American South and one man-made sound plays out evocatively across the landscape: the horn of a passing freight train. For a century and a half it's been almost synonymous with the idea of America, particularly where the rural blends with the urban. In the city of Nashville, Tennessee - 'music city' - the last century has been accompanied by another signature sound: the honky tonk bar. In this leisurely half hour, we witness the musical arrival of a freight train as it crosses the public highway into downtown Nashville. The rattle of the tracks and sonorous horn dissolve into the sounds of Broadway, the strip where every premises has windows open onto the street, spilling music out to draw tourists in. And between the bars, buskers plug the gaps. It takes about half an hour to walk up and down Broadway from the Cumberland River - past honky tonks throbbing with Dolly Parton and Lynyrd Skynyrd covers, street renditions of Louis's Wonderful World and pedal-powered bars pumping out hits for bachelorette parties. The sounds which compete for our attention within this cacophony provide as vivid a snapshot of contemporary Nashville as the freight train horn that sits so snugly within this cityscape, framing the downtown walk. Produced by Hannah Dean with recordings by Alan Hall. A Falling Tree production for BBC Radio 3.

We are wrapping up our Nashville series with where to eat in Nashville. We already talked about Where to Stay in Nashville and The Top Things to Do in Nashville. Now it’s time to talk about some of the amazing food options when in Nashville. If you haven’t eaten yet, this episode will make you hungry. We’ve been focusing on eating better and getting fit. Diane is on the keto diet and Chris is doing a keto/paleo version. To be honest, preparing for this show was a bit of a challenge to our diets. There are so many great things to do and see in Nashville and the food is no exception. We kick things off with some great spots in Downtown Nashville. We tell you about the super cool Acme Feed & Seed along with what we each like to order. We also tell you where to get amazing oysters and unbelievable milkshakes before moving on to our favorite spots in The Gulch. After that we tell you about Midtown hotspots, some classy West End options, our favorite spot in 12 South, Hillsboro Village, and Chris’s favorite pizza place in East Nashville. Warning: graphic food descriptions, please eat before listening to this episode. Show Notes: [04:15] Downtown Nashville is the hustling and bustling area where all of the honkytonks are located. [04:32] Acme Feed & Seed is a cool historic building with a honkytonk on the first floor with great food and drinks. There is also a great bar and food on the second floor which also has sushi. The third floor is an event center called The Hatchery. There is also a rooftop bar with great views of Broadway, the Cumberland River, Nissan Stadium, and Riverfront Park. [07:42] Get Ike & Mike Nachos on the second floor. [08:25] Chris would eat an acme burger with bear creek beef & cheddar cheese and hand-cut fries. Di would have he farm-raised catfish with hush puppies, hand cut fries, and slaw. [09:32] For dessert, try a southern hand pie with cinnamon ice cream and caramel sauce. [10:05] The Southern Steak & Oyster. They serve breakfast, lunch, brunch, and dinner. At brunch you can get pictures of mimosas. They also have great oysters. [11:54] Eat like Chris with the fried chicken, greens, and mac and cheese or a double-cut smoked pork chop. Di likes the shrimp and grits or seared sea scallops. [14:11] There is a special dessert place called Legendairy. It's a crazy over the top milkshake bar. They make things like Death by Chocolate which is Dutch chocolate and rocky road ice cream, chocolate icing rim, chocolate chips, whipped cream, chocolate fudge drizzle, chocolate sprinkles, and a fudge brownie on top. [17:06] Now we are moving into The Gulch. The Whiskey Kitchen has great cocktails with awesome names. They have an extensive whiskey menu and late night dinners. [18:34] Chris would eat dry wings (sweet & smoky bbq, togarashi, or ranch-spiced) to start and three little pigs brick oven pizza (sausage, pit ham, Gifford’s bacon, mozzarella, provolone). [19:33] Di would have the rocket salad (arugula, slicked strawberry, blue cheese crumble, toasted pecan, lemon herb vinaigrette) to start and low country pulled pork sandwich with chipotle mac & cheese. [20:27] Biscuit Love is world famous. They have three locations. They serve breakfast, lunch, and brunch. They started as a food truck and make everything from scratch. Try an east nasty chicken sandwich. [21:33] Chris would have the princess which is buttermilk biscuit, Nashville style spicy boneless hot chicken thigh, pickles, mustard, and honey. [22:15] Di would have Bonuts which are fried biscuit dough, tossed in sugar, topped with lemon mascarpone, served over blueberry compote or Hummingbird Family Reserve a drop biscuit filled with pineapples and banana jam, topped with cream cheese frosting and pecans. [23:28] Jackalope Brewing Co. The founders met while studying in Scotland. They have brews with cool names. Chris would have a Fennario IPA and Di would have Thunder Ann Pale Ale. [26:09] Midtown. The Patterson House is a speakeasy in a secret location. Governor Malcolm R. Patterson vetoed prohibition, but his veto was overridden by the state legislature. They have unique cocktails and delicious food. [29:48] Get some Nashville hot chicken at Hattie B's. [31:22] Chris would get the Damn Hot with southern greens. Di would get the Southern with no heat with either peach cobbler or banana pudding. [31:45] Warning: Shut the Cluck Up!! is HOT! [34:31] We love pizza, but only recommend places we go. DeSano has communal seating and traditional style pizza, calzones, cannolis, and you can even get slices. [36:03] The West End. The Americano is like a tapas bar. It's fine dining in a relaxed atmosphere. [37:12] Saltine is a great seafood place, and they have oysters. Chris's favorite go-to dessert is chocolate cake. [38:34] 12 South has some cool places to eat. Bartaco is our go-to spot. They have street tacos. We always order the chips and salsas. [40:06] Chris orders the chicken and shrimp. Di loves the crispy rock shrimp, glazed pork belly, Baja fish, and when in season the crispy oyster tacos. [42:36] The Christie Cookie Co. is across the street. They have amazing cookies and brownies that are awesome. Take some home! [44:09] The Frothy Monkey serves breakfast through dinner, and they have great coffee and food options. [45:41] Hillsboro Village: Check out the Pancake Pantry. Get there before 9:00 am. There is a long line, but the pancakes are worth it. [47:31] Kay Bob's has Persian and Southern influenced healthy food. [48:26] When you make it to East Nashville hit up Five Points Pizza. This is Chris's favorite, and even though you can get just a slice, he suggests the whole pie. [50:25] The Pharmacy has 100% Tennessee raised burgers. They have great burgers, brats, and shakes. They make their own condiments and have a unique beer selection. [51:44] Time to wrap up and go eat.

We’ve already talked about Where to Stay in Nashville, but what are you going to do while you are there? You probably know Nashville is famous for country music and nightlife, but there is more to Nashville than that. Downtown Nashville is often called Nashvegas because of all of the amazing bars, restaurants, and venues. We suggest fun ideas whether you are into shopping, sports, or dancing. We break down some of the more famous night spots and honky tonks in the area. It’s even possible to have a sighting of a favorite artist or two while you are out. Some of these places are even owned by stars like Luke Bryan, John Rich, Kid Rock and more. We also talk about local attractions other than bars and some really fun family ideas that are two hours or less away. If you are planning a Nashville trip, we have tons of fun ideas and suggestions for you to explore. Show Notes: [04:48] Nashvegas or downtown. Nashville hosted the 2019 NFL draft and showcased everything that Nashville has to offer. [05:18] Lower Broadway or 2nd and Broadway is known for the Honky Tonks. [05:46] Honky Tonks usually have country music and some type of line dancing. It's typically people dressed in western gear but they don't have to be. [07:21] There are a lot of blocks in this four block area. [07:36] Some iconic bars include Tootsies, The Stage, Legends, and Roberts. These are the Honky Tonks right behind the Ryman which was originally the Grand Ole Opry. After shows, people like Johnny Cash would head out and have a drink at these places. [08:35] There's all kinds of great local talent, plus you never know who you'll see there. [09:11] There are also bars created by big stars like Florida Georgia Line, Jason Aldean, Luke Bryan, and Kid Rock. There's the Redneck Riviera bar which isn't far away from Mount Richmore where Jon Rich lives. [10:54] There are also some great places to dance in Lower Broadway like Acme Feed & Seed, Bourbon Street Blues, and Skulls Rainbow Room. [11:15] Wildhorse Saloon line dance has line dance lessons. They also have other dancing and great fun times. [12:03] Nashville is a great place to see your team. Nissan Stadium where the Titans play their home games is right downtown. [13:12] The Country Music Hall of Fame is also in this area. As well as, the Nashville Convention Center and Johnny Cash Museum. [14:15] There's a lot of great shops. You can get boots, souvenirs, and music. Local boutiques include Nash collection and southernaire Market. [14:49] We like to drive around and look for the Elvis Statue. [15:57] Get around in style in a Nashville Pedal Pub. We recommend the motorized ones. [18:06] You can also get pulled around by a tractor that pulls a flatbed. It's like a hay ride, but there are seats and a bartender. [20:06] There are all kinds of rolling parties like buses without tops. They also have golf cart taxis that help you bar hop safely. [22:59] There are also many great tours in and around Nashville. The Ryman hosts concerts and events, and you can get a tour. [23:43] The Centennial Park Parthenon is another great sight. [24:29] The current Grand Ole Opry is near the Opryland Hotel and the Opry Mills Mall. [25:54] You could also have a dinner cruise on the General Jackson Showboat. [26:39] If you don't mind going a little further away, you could go on the Jack Daniel's Distillery tour. [27:58] Arrington Vineyards has their own wine. It's a beautiful place. Kicks Brooks is one of the owners. [29:16] We also have Old Hickory Lake. You can rent boats and find your own private sand bar to hang out on. [31:37] Mammoth Cave National Park has bike trails and Cave tours. [32:21] Land Between the Lakes is the largest stretch of untouched forest on the East Coast. [33:31] If you go two hours south to Huntsville Alabama, there is a fantastic Space and Rocket Center. [34:33] Eat at Rosie's Cantina when you are in Huntsville. [35:59] Rock Island State Park is actually on our list of places to go. It looks gorgeous. [37:15] If you head towards Memphis, you will find the Pinson Mounds. These are Native American burial and ceremonial mounds. There's also an archaeological park there.

Episode #54 - 9/12/10 Raider Greg and the Raider Nation Podcast/Raider Nation Videocast crew headed to Nashville for the Raiders 2010 season opener. Our video starts the night before the game in Downtown Nashville, where the Raider Nation was forming up for a large Raiders party at McFadden's Bar. On game day we met up with Thomas Coke, head of the Smoky Mountain Raiders Booster Club for a great pregame tailgate party. Thomas showed us his incredible Raiders truck, the paint job must be seen to be believed. We chatted with Raiders fans and Titans fans alike, and the hospitality in Nashville was very nice. Unfortunately the Raiders were not ready for the Titans, who came out strong and took the opener from the Raiders by a score of 38-13. Recorded between Sept. 10 and Sept. 12, 2010 in Nashville, Tennessee
