I travel to Nashville quite frequently, as the city is full of great and random fun, many of my friends reside there, and it’s only a few short hours away. This past weekend, Lucero was playing back to back performances at the Mercy Lounge, which sounded like a fine excuse to road trip east. So, naturally, Jackson and I headed out of town Friday after work to hear some good music, catch up with some great buddies, and make some happy memories.
The shows were loads of fun, as expected; we danced hard and sang along loudly. One particularly notable highlight was Lucero’s cover of Bill Wither’s epic song, Ain’t No Sunshine, which was in.cred.i.ble. I know, I know, I know, I know, I know, I know…..
When not rocking to Lucero, we decided to take the slightly touristy route. We went to Centennial Park to feed the ducks, then wandered over to the Parthenon for a little history lesson.
And jumped around a bit.
Which made us parched and in need of a sweet treat. Gourmet popsicles it was. Note to readers: avocado popsicles are suprisingly delicious. For those of you in the Nashville area, you should visit Las Paletas and try one for yourself.
From there, we headed over to Percy Warner Park to do a little exploring.
And there you have it, a brief look at our quick jaunt in Nashville!
