I would LOVE to have some of that. That just sounds yummy. What they really need to do is make sure it's Wisconsin Cheese Curds, though.

I'll just go with preference and personal experience here:

-Is the tailgate good for Titans game? We are going to the game on Sunday.- Most Titans games are at noon, so that doesn't help much. There's a lot of people there, but most NFL games in this time zone don't cater much to tailgating because 12 isn't real early, but not late enough to do much before hand. Get there early and don't feel weird about it. Also, in Tennessee you can't purchase alcohol outside of a bar until noon on Sundays. So if you want that for a tailgate, get it the previous night.
-Any sports bar that will show the Habs game on Saturday night? Dont mind if its a small tv hidden in the corner really.
As someone else said, Bailey's is probably your best bet on Broadway. Scratch that, it IS your best bet.
-Is the country HOF worth the stop even if were not really into country?
Not sure.
-Any less known attractions that we should know about?
Depends on how much time you have. Yeah The Parthenon is cool, about 2 miles west of downtown across from Vanderbilt. I had people I knew from San Diego come into town a couple weeks ago to see our Chargers choke against the Titans, and they took a day trip on Saturday to go out to the Jack Daniel's Distillery. They loved it. That's a large time commitment though but doable if you're able to get an early start. They left at 10am and were back in plenty of time to prepare and go nuts Saturday night.

I'll be heading to Nashville for the Kings game on the 17th and leaving the 19th and this thread has been quite helpful even if a lot of the posts are a little old. I'm definitely planning on going to Broadway Brewhouse and the Flying Saucer after reading it.

From what I've been reading it sounds like Fort Negley is more ruins than a fort, is it worth seeing at all? On the 18th I was thinking of visiting the Hermitage in the morning and then wandering around the Capitol area and visiting the State Museum if their Civil War and Reconstruction Era exibits are pretty good. Also the Yazoo brewery, possibly on my way out since they give tours on Saturdays. Does that sound like a pretty full day? I'll be going to Nashville any time the Kings are in town for the foreseeable future, so I don't need to hit everything in this trip.

I'm looking forward to seeing a game at Bridgestone as the atmosphere always seems great on TV.

Also thinking of planning a trip to Nashville within the next few weeks.

Does anybody on here get together and tailgate beforehand?

I rarely see tailgating in the full sense of the word. It's possible because you can park at certain lots at LP Field for free and then walk to the arena, which gives you ample time and space to tailgate if you want, but with the heavy concentration of the bars and music venues next to/near the arena, most fans looking for entertainment just hit Broadway. My favorite is Paradise Park.

No sense to tailgate when the area is littered with bars and honkey tonks and people drinking every anyways.

Sounds as if you like history, so I'll orient my response towards those types of attractions.

Definitely do the state capitol, they redid it a few years ago and it looks really great. There is also the Bicentennial Mall down the hill from the capitol which has a walking timeline of important events in TN history that I think is awesome as well. The TN farmer's market is next door and has several good options for a cheap but good lunch (Jamaicaway and Nooley's are my faves).

The state museum has some great exhibits and I'd also say is well worth it. It has the battle flag of the CSS Alabama (which gives me a kick every time cause I know it must tick off Alabamians to no end) and several other interesting Civil War exhibits.

Fort Negley, although pleasant, is pretty much just a city park. An alternative is to see Belle Meade Plantation, its a museum that focuses on interpreting a Southern antebellum estate (the famous Loveless Cafe is in that direction as well). I'd also say check out the Parthenon in Centennial Park if you haven't seen it.

Yazoo's awesome and there's another brewery a couple blocks by called Jackalope that's pretty good to check out as well.

Enjoy Nashville! And remember for future visits, there's alot of other Civil War stuff in the region (Franklin, Spring Hill, Stone's River, etc).

My favorites ranked

1) Pepperfire on Gallatin Pike
2) Bishop's in Franklin
3) 400 Degrees on Rutledge Hill (only 5 or so blocks from Bridgestone, by far nearest to downtown)
4) Prince's in a sketch strip center in North Nashville, this is the original though

Don't do Hattie B's, its for the tourists and no bueno imo

Oh, and they're supposedly going to start serving hot chicken in the arena this season...no idea on how good it is though

Not quite the same, lol. Hot chicken is a LOT spicier than anything you'll get at Wendy's and Chick-Fil-A. At least, the times I've had it were much hotter than anything I've ever had at a fast food place. I can't say for sure that it's a universal constant.
