Nashville: 1st Night
Arriving in Nashville Saturday night, our first stop was the infamous Prince’s Hot Chicken. Located in a grungy strip mall on the outskirts of Nashville, you wouldn’t expect a culinary hotspot to be here. We put our order in for the specialty, their hot fried chicken. I ordered the “Medium” hot, while Joe went for the “Hot”. 40 minutes later, the chicken is served on two pieces of white bread with pickles and we dive in. Mine was damn hot, but Joe’s on the other hand, was on another level. It was almost a purple color. Sweat was beeding off of his face and he said that “his face was going numb” mid way through the meal. VERY INTENSE!! Don’t get me wrong, we love spicy food. The girl at the counter warned him, but we often order food and it is never that spicy even when we request it to be. The chicken was delicious, and it was a fun adventure to say the least!
After checking into our hotel, we decided to head downtown Nashville to see some live music on Broadway. It was crazy jammed packed, I felt like I was in Madison on Halloween. I think we both expected it to be a bit different than it was. I saw at least 5 tribes of bachelorettes, and tons of cowboy boots crowding the streets. It seemed to be more of a”touristy” thing. I think we wanted to hear some alt-country-rock-bluegrass-blues-jam type of sound instead of “Pour Some Sugar On Me” type of sound. I’m glad we experienced it, and it was fun seeing the street with all of the music venues and history– we just know next time what to expect on a Saturday night.
