We stayed at The Russell on the east side, which was a nice home base to go explore things, and not terribly expensive.
Dinner at Husk was really, really good. I need some more shrimp and grits in my life... We had hot chicken at Party Fowl and Hattie B's and they were both good.
Monell's in Germantown was probably still my favorite dining experience out of all of the different places we went. I loved everything about that place.
The Country Music Hall of Fame was really well done. My girlfriend is now apparently inspired to embroider me a Nudie suit. As for the Ryman, I actually got a little teary eyed upon walking through the doors and seeing the stage for the first time. So much great music done there... And I really enjoyed the RCA Studio B tour. It's pretty cool to see the X on the floor where Elvis actually stood.
Anyway, it was a great trip. I'll be back again eventually.
