Music City Must-Sees

By Elsbeth Russell • August 9, 2014

Do you have some extra downtime while visiting our host city of Nashville? The Music City is rolling out the red carpet in welcoming ASAE Meeting attendees. There’s so much to do in and around the city that we’ve decided to work with some local insiders to suggest some fun and unique venues and activities to check out while you’re in town.

The Nashville Pedal Tavern is a 16-person bicycle powered party on wheels. A 2.5 hour bar crawl the Pedal Tavern trip makes 2-3 stops along the route giving you the option to check out the great bars, restaurants and shops the city has to offer. It’s a great opportunity to take group photos in various areas of the city.
While the Pedal Tavern provides the transportation, you’ll need to bring your own beverages. No glass or full size kegs allowed but they provide a cooler stocked with ice and cups for you.
Both private tours and public tours are available. You can reserve a bike privately for your group up to 16 people or reserve individual seats and join other groups! The tours start and end in 2 different locations. Check them out at www.nashvillepedaltavern.com for more information.
If you’re looking for more eating and less biking, The Southern Steak & Oyster is a unique restaurant in the heart of downtown Nashville, offering Southern cuisine with a twist.
The restaurant features a state-of-the-art, shuck-to-order oyster bar, a real wood-fired grill, locally-grown produce, deliciously tender meats and directly-sourced, sustainable seafood. According to their website “The Southern combines indigenous flavors with exotic ingredients to offer an authentically southern experience with a twist. The Southern’s cuisine brings a southern sensibility to time-honored dishes from around the world. With influences from the Gulf Coast to the Caribbean; from Nova Scotia to North Carolina, the menu at The Southern is truly ‘south of somewhere.'”

You can find The Southern at 150 3rd Avenue South, or reach them by calling 615-742-1762 or visiting www.thesouthernnashville.com.

Stay tuned for more fun finds from the Music City as the ASAE Annual Meeting continues…
