Chins up, Nashville… It’s practically Friday, which means it’s almost Saturday. For some reason, our four-day work week has felt twice as long as usual, and we’re more than ready for this weekend. You may have noticed that The Weekendist has been eerily absent in recent weeks, and that’s because January and February are the most boring months EVER. Even so, it appears that Nashville is finally over the Christmas-exhaustion hump and back to business as usual, with plenty of stuff happening this weekend to keep us on our toes.
- Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey: Over The Top at the Sommet Center, Friday-Sunday. (Performance times & tickets here)
- Tennessee State Fairgrounds Flea Market, Friday-Sunday. Admission is free, but be prepared to shell out a couple of bucks for parking.
- All About Women at the Nashville Convention Center, 9am-9pm.
- Zoo Run Run 5k at the Nashville Zoo. Late registration/check in begins at 2pm, the race starts at 3pm and dinner for participants following the race will begin at 4pm.
- Heart & Soul Benefit at the Lofts at Werthan Mills, 7pm-11pm. This is the fifth year for Nashville’s Heart & Soul Benefit, sponsored by Lightning 100’s Team Green and Monells Dining. The event benefits the American Heart Association. This year, attendees will browse six beautiful lofts, with wine & microbrew tastings, hors d’ouvres & desserts, artwork and live entertainment available in each loft. Tickets are $35 in advance, $40 the day of.
- Where The Locals Eat book signing & tasting at Davis-Kidd in Green Hills, 2pm-4pm. Pat Embry will be signing the second edition of his Where The Locals Eat guide to Nashville dining, and local restaurants will be forking over samples (pun intended). [See our previous post on Where The Locals Eat]
