So as I was saying, the other weekend turned out to be quiet random. After Sam and I got back from the Vanderbilt football game, we both had put on our sweats when I received a text from Hillary saying she was going out and since it didn’t work to meet up last night she really wanted to see us. I stuck to my guns and told her I was staying in tonight but we would have to plan something for next weekend. Then, we were just about to watch a movie Sam rented when my phone started ringing. My friend Adam from home (who is in grad school at Mississippi State) was calling….at 9:00PM. I answered and the first thing he said was “Hey, you’re still in Nashville right?!” He then proceeded to tell me he was in town with his frat buddies for a formal of some sort and that I NEEDED to get downtown and hang out with them.
Of course, the night I’m absolutely determined to NOT go out one of my friends just happens to be in town. So, after getting off the phone with him I convinced Sam to go out as well as Jacquie, Rachel, Katie, Courtney, and Lauren B. What can I say, I can be good at sweet talking
After getting ready, we all went to meet Adam at BB Kings which I have never been to before. We met all of his friends and after finishing our drinks I convinced Adam to head to a different bar. BB Kings was okay but the jazz music was hard to dance to and we were all definitely in the mood to go somewhere where we could both talk and dance to some good music. So we ended up leaving and going to one of the new bars that has opened up called Honkey Tonk Central. Only in Nashville will you find somewhere with a name like that!
This bar had just the atmosphere we were looking for and Adam loved it too. Him and his friends had been drinking since 11am so by 1:00 they were ready to leave and headed back to their hotel. Jacquie, Lauren, Rachel, and Katie ended up leaving too but now that we were out Courtney, Sam, and I were not quite ready to go home. So, we ended up leaving Honkey Tonk and meeting the med students at Paradise Park.
After finding Hillary and talking to her for awhile, I had a guy come up to me that looked really familiar. It ended up being Lindsey’s neighbor, Nick, who I had met before. I talked to him for quite awhile and hung out with the med students for the rest of the night. We ended up staying out to bar close and then going to get some late night food (for Courtney) afterwards and not getting home until 3:30am. Our spontaneous night ended up being a lot of fun and it was really great to see Adam again.
The whole weekend was filled with a lot of fun and relaxing but not productive at all like I had hoped. That’s okay though – there’s plenty of other time to get cleaning and studying done!
I’ll have to make time this week to post a recap of the festivities from yesterday since I did the Country Music Rock N’ Roll half marathon. Saturday was a crazy busy day and I got to cross the one race I had really wanted to do while I was here off my bucket list. I’ll fill you all in later!
