Today we explored the city of downtown Nashville after a late start in the morning. We ended up on Broadway (street/avenue), where we were able to take in the sights of the city. We were determined to reach the pedestrian sidewalk above the river but we ended up splitting up into two groups to allow everyone to go to the places they wanted to go. One group (that included Dioni) ended up going back up the strip to the restaurants to listen to the music blasting through all of them. They were determined to get a taste of Nashville, so they were looking for great restaurants to go to. They ended up going to Jack's Barbecue where they got a taste of traditional southern foods like ribs, mac &cheese, mashed potato, and corn. After they ate they went off to another restaurant that had an open floor to allow people to line dance and listen to great country music. They chose this restaurant based on how loud the music was blasting. They watched as women were line dancing and decided to join in. After a few sets passed they decided to leave to get amazing ice cream.
The other group (which included Aastha) decided to go to the pedestrian sidewalk on the river. After taking pictures of the city, we went back down to the strip to eat lunch at The Tillery, a restaurant that had vegan, gluten free, and vegetarian items for those with dietary restrictions. We then went to meet up with the other group and eat ice cream with them all at Jeni's Splendid Ice Creams.
Dinner was vegetarian orzo, potatoes, and chicken cooked by Hope and Adam. Delicious!
