Week 25


My intern, Jill, and I each received a pair of tickets to the Adventure Science Center's 2010 Caper party.  I brought Darrell, and Jill brought our friend Caitlin.  The theme this year was 1940s, which turned out to be a lot of fun.

I climbed all the way to the top of the peaky roof!  I tried to take group pictures there, but failed.  Here are the two pictures on Flicker: Picture 1 and Picture 2.

More info about the Adventure Science Center here.
I would like to go back and see the planetarium sometime.  We didn't get to see it, because we had to leave early... I had to spontaneously run to Scottsboro, Alabama for a funeral for my cousin Sam.  :^(

Week 24


Darrell and I were out toodling around on Valentine's Day, and I spotted these little cabins off the main road.  So, we waded through a muddy field and saw that they were part of Evergreen Place, a historic home in Nashville that was demolished in 2005 to make way for the new Home Depot.

More information about Evergreen Place and the demolition is here.  And a photo of the original home that was destroyed is here.

We proceeded from there to eat at The Wild Cow again; this time, we had vegan peanut butter cheesecake for dessert.  Yum!

Week 23


Since Brianne was in for the weekend, I took advantage of her visit to go ahead and knock out another new place on a Sunday instead of waiting until the end of the week.  We're both vegetarians, so we piled in the truck with Darrell and went to The Wild Cow, a vegetarian restaurant in Nashville.

The food was super-tasty!  I love being able to eat anything on the menu.  Anything!  Fancy that!  And all the cheese is non-dairy unless you specially request dairy.  Wow.

Week 22


My best friend Brianne came to visit, and I could think of no better to take her than the largest liquor store in Tennessee!  We really didn't buy much, but we did enjoy looking at all the labels and bottles.  I also enjoyed groping Jack Daniel.
