A (Nearly) Native’s Guide to This Weekend (3/21-3/23)

You’re new here, right? So many things to explore this weekend! What would one do if they were “in the know” in Nashville?

FRIDAY, March 21, 2014 – SUNDAY, March 23, 2014

  • Boom Bap at The 5 Spot (Saturday) – The 5 Spot is a Nashville institution made famous by such television shows as “Nashville” (p.s. Nashvillians don’t watch this show, so not cool. AKA we all secretly watch it and pretend we don’t care if Rayna ends up with Deacon). Regardless, The 5 Spot is epic. The Boom Bap on the third Saturday of every month brings out some serious dancers so be ready to sweat and dance the night away. Stay tuned for more information on The 5 Spot, there’s so much more to tell!
  • TedXNashville – Ted is awesome, goes without saying really. It’s sold out this year. Try again next year!
  • Kenny Loggins at the Schermerhorn Symphony Center ($54 and up) – If you’re into 80’s throwback jams the Schermerhorn is a beautiful venue, but be warned it is the Symphony Center and if you’re under the age of 35 you’ll probably throw off the median age of its regulars (c. 65 years old). But the Schermerhorn can use patrons! It’s had trouble in the past attracting the younger crowd, so if nothing else your attendance will give back to the cause of keeping this beautiful downtown establishment running.
  • Corey Holcomb at Zanie’s Comedy Club ($22.50) – It’s a comedy club with alcohol and greasy food. You can’t really go wrong here.
  • Cheekwood in Bloom – It’s officially spring in Nashville and Cheekwood’s art and botanical garden displays are definitely worth a visit. If you’ve got friends or family in town Cheekwood is a great way to show off Tennessee’s warm spring weather. And there are events in addition to the gardens and the art that occur regularly!
  • Soulshine Pizza – Pizza, beer, great live music almost every night, and a patio that is worthy of a good sit on a nice night.
  • Climb Nashville East Grand Opening – For the fitness fiends, Climb Nashville is a great workout and they’re opening a new location with lots of festivities this Saturday ($8 Daypass w/Gear)
  • March Madness – Obviously. The following local bars are fully equipped to handle Nashville natives and newbies alike. Here’s a list by area of town:

The Gulch/Downtown

Bar Louie, The Pub, Whiskey Kitchen, Flying Saucer,ANY bar on Broadway


Sam’s, Tavern, Broadway Brewhouse, Dan McGuiness, Tin Roof, Red Door, Corner Pub

East Nashville

Drifter’s BBQ, 3 Crow, Red Door East, Beyond the Edge, Village Pub

West Nashville

M.L Rose, Jed’s

So much to do, so little weekend! More to come on the places and spaces that this Nearly Native Nashvillian ends up this weekend. For now, Google away on my keywords and get yourself out and about. Even if you’re a newby, Nashvillians are very friendly people. All it takes is for you give us and The Music City a shot.

See how I said “us” there? I’ve been here a year and I’m already pretending I’m a Nashvillian 🙂
