First trip to Nashville...

Hi all -

i'm going to be in Nashville in a few weeks for the first time, and unfortunately, since it's for work, my play time will be short. I'll be in the Vanderbilt area, WITHOUT a car. I need to plan lunch and dinner and dinner Monday. Sunday's on my own dime, while i can expense Monday.

i'd like to get downtown to do some shopping (are things open on sunday in "downtown"?) so i'm looking for somewhere great down there that's easy to get to. (i'm under the impression that even with the free bus, it'll be too much of a pain to get to germantown, the gulch, etc, so maybe downtown is easiest?) also assuming the "meat+3" is the classic nashville thing, which i certainly want to partake in...

i've also noticed rotiers and elliston place soda shop near where i'll be... worth it, or should i cab somewhere else?

as for Monday, where would you go if you had about $50 to spend and only ONE dinner in Nashville?!
