Shastina and I drove over the Nashville for the day just to have a quick roadtrip. We had great weather and no troubles on this trip.
First up, we went to Whole Foods - what a great place, it's a grocery store and has a hot/cold bar section that is HUGE and has lots and lots of vegetarian and vegan options, I was in veg overload. They had something wonderful called 'chicken fried tofu' which was breaded and fried cubes of tofu, and tons of other stuff too. The area that it was in downtown is really cute and reminded us of Atlantic Station in Atlanta.
Then we went to Centennial Park to see the Parthenon which is a full size replica of the Greek monument. It has an art museum in it, and also a 42-foot statue of Athena and reproductions of the Elgin Marbles.
Next we went to Opry Mills mall. Had planned to also check out Opryland Hotel since Shas has never been, but we ended up shopping too long and still had to go to dinner before driving home.
We ate at Maggiano's Restaurant (had previously eaten at the one in Atlanta) - it was excellent Italian cuisine. Had an uneventful drive home.
