Explosions In The Sky & Other Fun For The Fourth

July 3, 2012 6:09 PM 1 comment

After sweet-talking our HVAC units, making impulse CamelBak buys, and/or all-out fleeing the city during the hottest week of the year, a quick rundown of Music City’s Independence Day festivities might be enough to lure us out of the house–armed with at least a few dozen liters of water and sunscreen, that is. We’re only half-joking. Our picks for the holiday below, and remember to play it safe out there! No boozin’ behind the wheel and, especially this year, no blowing things up. Seriously.

  • Music City July 4th 5K/10KDowntown Nashville, 8AM, $40. It wouldn’t be a proper holiday around here without a 5K, would it? The kind folks at I Run For The Party are providing a way to work off the beer and hot chicken before it even hits. If you haven’t already registered, don’t sweat it! Race day registration opens at 7AM, so get yourself down there before the pavement reaches its boiling point.
  • 2012 Music City Hot Chicken Festival. East Park, 11AM-3PM, FREE. If you’re looking for a way to escape the heat, this might not be your best option, but! This kind of heat is much, much tastier. The festival is stepping up its game this year by bringing a parade along with it, starting at 10:30AM at 8th and Woodland and ending at the East Park Community Center. Heading up this sure-to-be Nashville tradition is former mayor Bill Purcell and none other than Yazoo Brew. Honorable purveyors of hot chicken include Prince’s, Bolton’s, 400 degrees, Pepperfire and Smack Your Mama. They’ll be serving up free samples until they run out.
  • Let Freedom Sing! Music City July 4th.The Lawn at Riverfront Park, 12PM-late, FREE. What can we say? While the rest of the world slowly realizes that Nashville throws a heckuva party, we’ll already be down at the riverfront dousing our hot chicken burns with some Jack Daniels. Even if you missed this evening’s pre-Fourth festivities, there’s plenty to see on the big day. Gates open at noon tomorrow, followed by a steady lineup of tunes including Tyme, Jason Eskridge, Sarah Darling and Craig Morgan. The Family Fun Zone will keep the kids entertained with plenty of large inflatable things and for the adults, a beer garden and Jack Daniels Experience. Fireworks will kick off around 9:45ish backed by the beautiful soundscapes of the Nashville Symphony.

    Wednesday Link Roundup: 6/20/12

    An explosion at the Gaylord Opryland Resort & Convention Center forced the evacuation of 4,500 sheriffs and 500 regular ol’ people last night. The explosion, which caused $750,000 in damages to the hotel, is being attributed to a compromised gas line. No injuries have been reported and repairs are already underway. Metro Council voted 32-8 to approve next fiscal year’s budget, which includes a 53-cent property tax increase. The approved substitute budget is similar to Mayor Dean’s original proposed budget, [...]

    We’re saddened to hear the news of Germantown Cafe co-owner Jay Luther’s untimely death, thought to be due to carbon dioxide poisoning after he became trapped in the East Nashville location’s walk-in freezer. Much love from Nashvillest to Luther’s family, friends and the Germantown Cafe family. That pesky bridge work causing weekend closures of I-24 east of downtown is on track to be finished by August 31. Bonus: No closures this weekend due to a large concert at LP Field! [...]

First lady Michelle Obama is returning to Nashville for the second time in two months to speak at the African Methodist Episcopal Church conference at Gaylord Opryland on June 28. Day passes to the event are $50 and are supposedly reserved through the church’s website, but we can’t actually find where! Happy hunting. Filed under Groupons We’re Really Glad We Didn’t [...]

    The Nashville Symphony’s community concert series gets started tonight at East Park, the first of four* free outdoor performances scheduled for this month (three are this week).

    Chicago Or MegaBust: One Man’s Tale Of Nashville To Chicago Transit On The Megabus

    Our dear friend Ben Morton is headed to Chicago for the weekend to run his first half marathon (goooo Ben!) and he’s bravely decided to entrust his transportation to Megabus, the express bus service that touts fares as low as $1. Because Megabus is relatively new to the Nashville area, we thought a lot of people might be interested in hearing how Ben’s trip goes. So here are the facts: Ben purchased his ticket back in mid-March for $18.50, taxes [...]
