10 Things to Add to Your Nashville Bucket List

10 Things to Add to Your Nashville Bucket List

Would you like to say you have truly experienced Nashville? If your answer is yes, then here is a bucket list of ten things just waiting to be crossed off:

1. The Pharmacy 

The Pharmacy is a hole in the wall burger joint located on the out skirts of the city. The restaurant received best burger in Nashville two years in a row! 

2. The Bluebird Cafe
The Bluebird Cafe is a listening venue where you can check out some up and coming talent. It is recognized world wide for its songwriter performance space. The setting is very quaint with an acoustic vibe. It is a great opportunity to go and listen to the “heroes behind the hits.” 

3. Grand Ole Opry 
They call it Music City for a reason folks. There are tons of music venues just waiting to be stormed, and probably the most famous of all is the Grand Ole Opry. At the Opry, you will experience a wide historical range of country music that is meant to entertain all ages.

4. Wildhorse Saloon
Interested in learning a couple of line dances? Then, you have come to the right place. The Wildhorse Saloon got its name from Reba McEntire who herded a stampede of real life cattle through the streets of downtown Nashville, ending just in front of the building! The Saloon is open to all ages during the day (offering food and music), and at night it transforms into an eighteen plus venue.

5. Predators Hockey Game
If you are a hockey fan, or even if you have a chance of becoming a hockey fan, you have to attend a Nashville Predators game. 

6. Country Music Hall of Fame
The Country Music Hall of Fame is a museum located in the heart of downtown Nashville. It has exhibits and collections that display some of country music’s greatest musician memorabilia. 

7. Jeni’s Ice Cream
This is no ordinary ice cream. Jeni’s prides themselves on “not cutting corners or taking shortcuts” when it comes to their product, which is hand crafted on a regular basis. Plus, it’s ice cream; who could turn it down?

8. Live on the Green 
Live on the Green is a music festival that takes place around August/September every Thursday for six weeks. It features new bands, as well as some well-known groups. It is also completely FREE making it a prime destination for us college students. 

9. Ice-skating at Centennial Sportsplex 
This is a great activity to tackle with some of your friends on a weekend. It’s a good way to take a moment and de-stress from our usual hectic lives. 

10. Ryman Auditorium
Last, but certainly not least, we have the Ryman Auditorium. The Ryman is a music venue that does not have a bad seat in the house. It features a wide variety of music (everything from ZZ Top to the Zac Brown Band), so those of you who are not fans of country music, there are still performers for you. 

I promise you will not be disappointed by anything on this list, so start now, and earn the right to say you have truly experienced Music City.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.

Challah vs. Easter Bread: A Delicious Dilemma

Is there really such a difference in Challah bread or Easter Bread?

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.

Top 10 Reasons My School Rocks!

Why I Chose a Small School Over a Big University.

I was asked so many times why I wanted to go to a small school when a big university is so much better. Don't get me wrong, I'm sure a big university is great but I absolutely love going to a small school. I know that I miss out on big sporting events and having people actually know where it is. I can't even count how many times I've been asked where it is and I know they won't know so I just say "somewhere in the middle of Wisconsin." But, I get to know most people at my school and I know my professors very well. Not to mention, being able to walk to the other side of campus in 5 minutes at a casual walking pace. I am so happy I made the decision to go to school where I did. I love my school and these are just a few reasons why.
