My boyfriend and I will be in Nashville from the evening of April 23 until the afternoon of April 28. We're running the Country Music Marathon on April 25. Once we cross the finish line, I'm looking forward to eating many delicious things before we head home. I welcome all recommendations. We're coming from NYC, so I'm looking to find things we may not be able to find easily in NYC (and NYC has almost everything, so that may be tough), or delicious things that are much cheaper than in NYC (this should be pretty easy). We'll be doing typical tourist things I'm sure, and will spend lots of time near live music venues, so hopefully there is food nearby. We'll have a rental car so will drive to somewhere worth the trek. Our tastes are pretty open (my favorites are French, Thai, Cajun, and Ethiopian so I'm all over the place), so we're up for pretty much anything. Of course we need to include some southern fare!
And if anyone has any non-food related suggestions to throw in, I'd welcome those too. My boyfriend LOVES music, especially country, so I assume we'll be doing lots of music related things, though not sure what/where yet (he's too nervous for the marathon to plan beyond that!).
