Nashville after Christmas?
« on: December 13, 2012, 05:21:34 PM »
With the recent announcement of extra days off at work, it looks like I am going to be in Nashville with the family from (I think) the 26th-28th staying at the Gaylord (somehow my wife got a room for $85 a night).  There is some sort of ice sculpture thing she is dragging us to apparently.

Will anyone else be in town then?  I am definitely going to need a few drinks if the trip does happen.

well if you could get away the 26th, I know of an epic tasting that usually happens day after Christmas in Bowling Green...

There is a really strong beer community in Nashville, best communicated with via Facebook... too bad you are opposed to such things, or I could put you in touch.;-)

Two really good new breweries you should check out are in Franklin, Turtle Anarchy and Cool Springs Brewing.  CSB is actually a kid friendly pizza joint.  The brewer there came from Twisted Pine in Boulder and is one of the crazy people behind Ghost Face Killah... he is otherwise actually a very good brewer ;-)
non-conformists are all the same...

I couldn't likely do anything on the 26th unless it was in Nashville since that is really one of the travel days.

Facebook... meh...  Unless it was somebody I already knew from TBS, I am not sure if I would want to just hang out with random folks.

Even Franklin is likely a bit too far outside my likely travel circle for such a short trip.  I would definitely be interested in CSB especially if he made a version of Ghost Face Killah for there.  I actually liked that beer  :shrug:

He did make a hot pepper beer for CSB... they got to try it at The Winter Warmer... not sure if it would be on now though

I will be here and just live about 4-5 miles from the Opryland hotel.  The only hiccup would be my parents coming into town.

I completely understand if you can not get away due to holiday family obligations, but let me know if you can spare a few hours on the 26th or 27th.  26th is a travel day so it would it would have to be in the evening.  I would possibly have more flexibility on the 27th.

I am open to bringing a couple bottles to share or meeting for a pint or two somewhere if you can spare some time.   :cheers:

What do you think your availibility will be like around lunch/early afternoon on the 27th?  I'm thinking about working a half day and would be available after that but will probably have to go to my sister's house that evening.  I should also be available the evening of the 26th after 6 or so.

Ask Gilly...I don't get out much (only when I "import" friends).  So anyplace is likely a treat for me.

Let me talk to the wife and get back to you.  I do not see why it would be a problem but I do not want to promise something then have to deal with the fallout if my wife has plans for us then.

This seems to work with our plans.  Going to go to the Ice exhibit that morning at 10, but I don't think that will take all that long to get through.

Cool, I'll plan on leaving work at lunch.
