A reliable cure for my frequent bouts of wanderlust is only three hours away. Nashville is my current fix for an urban weekend getaway. Plus, traveling with a partner that I can best describe as being in absolute harmony with my soul combined with a chance to see Mumford and Sons at the Ryman took away all the stress. At least for those few days.
With a great opportunity to design graphics for the AIA Tennessee convention taking place in Nashville's new Music City Center, I'll be taking several quick visits to Nashville this year. So for now, enjoy part one.
Union Station Hotel

A historic train station converted to a high end hotel.

The boutique hotel where we stayed. Great location near Printer's Alley.
sam's sushi bar
200 4th ave north #441
This restaurant was recommended to us by someone at the hotel. Psst, it's run by a "sushi nazi." - a title Dirk gave him after the sushi chef yelled at us because we didn't see the sign that said "locals/ regulars only." He still served us though. Just be prepared if you try to sneak in for the first time.
