Nashville Sights and Tastes

We started our tour this morning to check out possible places for me to play pickleball, which apparently has not taken off in this area.  The nice people at the desk said they might get three or four, but no guarantees.  I'm not going to drive a half an hour on a maybe, so there will be no play until I reach Onalaska WI, but that's not so far off.

In this same area is the beautiful Centennial Park, complete with a full scale replica of the Parthenon.  It was created in 1897 as part of their Centennial Celebration.  We did not pay to go inside since we've seen the original one while in Greece many years ago. 

After this it was off to BB King's Place for my beloved gumbo.  I've been drooling thinking about this for some time now.  The parking near here is $12 an hour, so the parking cost more than my meal.

Left Brain went for the ribs and I got to taste a bit of them and they were divine.

My gumbo yaya was a special treat and I really need to learn how to make this dish.

The weather is cool and very windy, so the afternoon was spent in the luxury of our little mobile abode reading and catching up with social media.

Long Live the Queen


  1. I was going to say I've eaten there but then realized you are in Nashville, not Memphis. Oh well...

  2. FYI Hancock Fabrics is closing, maybe you'll get back here before the end.
