    We had a really fun week in Nashville so thank you for everyone who offered advice. Did a few museums and such (Musicians HOF, TN Sports HOF, TN State Museum, the outdoor Bicentennial walking museum), went to some really good restaurants (Saint Anejo had some amazing tacos and Party Fowl had some great hot chicken poutine), went to a couple breweries and watched the Bruins at a couple bars, went to a Sounds game (double header actually), and went to some animal sanctuary type place a little out of town called the Gentle Barn that was pretty fun especially for the girlfriend. Oh and we went to Top Golf which was a ton of fun. If there was one of those around me I would spend so much money there

    One thing that really stood out to me is how much Preds stuff I saw while visiting. Seemed like every store, bar, business had some Preds gear hanging in the window. We saw way more Preds stuff than Titans stuff. Way more than you'd even see up North

    So kudos to you guys for repping your team like that... I was seriously impressed. Hopefully I'll be able to come down and actually go to a game soon

    Evening, all! I'm going to be visiting nashville again this year, but this time with my girlfriend. I was wondering if anyone here is/has a friend who is a photographer. I'm gearing up to propose to my girlfriend of two and a half years, and am in need of someone to do some 'candid' pictures. time and place TBD, but I have a few ideas in mind - expenses paid.

    If you/your friend are available this weekend (preference to saturday afternoon), please contact me via DM. Greatly appreciate any contacts you all have!

    Hello all. I am a bruins fan looking to come down for the January 7 game. I had a few questions that maybe could be answered:

    1.) How is Nashville during the week? I assume it's a great lively place on the weekends, but I'm not looking to go down there for a long time. I was planning on going down that Monday morning, staying all day/night Tuesday (Bruins game at night), then flying home Wednesday afternoon.

    2.) Any reccomendations for hotels or restuarants/bars?

    3.) How's the area around the arena?

    1. Nashville is still happening during the week, though not like a big weekend. Monday will offer plenty of opportunity to do anything you'd like. The atmosphere around the arena and throughout downtown on Tuesday will be very happening.

    2. Bars: Be a tourist at Legends Corner, Tootsie's Orchid Lounge, Robert's Western World, and the Stage. If you want out of downtown and want to see country music and honky tonk legendary places, I'd say wander by the Blue Bird. Restaurants: Puckett's Grocery if you want a taste of the South. Acme Seed and Feed and plenty of others offer anything you'd want. Hotel is all dependent on what you want to spend. Nashville hotels are more expensive than NYC hotels in many cases now. Hilton is right beside the arena. If money is no object, look at the historic hotels or the train depot.

    3. The arena is on Broadway. You have the biggest tourist area in Nashville on the next block from the arena. It's a happening place, and will be great on a game night. It's safe, cool, and lots of fun.

    If you want to see something truly spectacular, go to Centennial Park and see the full sized replica of the Parthenon. Any season, any time of the day or night it is worth the visit. It's not within walking distance of the arena and Lower Broad but there are buses and rideshares if you don't want to drive. It's near Vanderbilt University on West End (which starts out as Broadway) so it's near-ish.

    Hello Nashville Fans!

    Coming down Halloween weekend and want to go to the Saturday game (Preds v Rangers), we have 5-6 people and curious how easy it is to get tickets? Prices currently seem like MSG pricing lol - are prices usually ~200+? Also ticketmaster doesn't allow outsiders to buy tickets (not sure if 3rd party sites do the same)

    Tickets for a Saturday night game will be somewhat available, but not cheap in any case. I've never heard of Ticketmaster excluding non-residents from purchases except for the Blackhawk games in past years. You may want to double check that.

    They do it for quite a few games. Just off the top of my head last year: Red Wings, Blues, Blackhawks, Rangers, Islanders...

    Does this board have season ticket holders selling tickets? I know the rangers have one where they list what games they are selling for usually face value and no stupid service fee :) - Didn't see that type of posting here.

    You might see one every so often but it's not a usual thing. Here's a Facebook page where you might find some:

    the area around the arena has to be one of the best if not the best in the NHL

    I'd appreciate any parking updates / suggestions this season. Usually park at Nissan Stadium but that was a couple years ago.

    Coming next Thursday

    Thanks

    You can still park there. Bridgestone Arena Event Parking | Downtown Nashville Parking
    There is also the library garage, Pinnacle, Music City Center, etc. Pinnacle charges $15 - 25 depending on the event/day/whether the symphony is also playing. I'd guess lower end for next Thursday but who knows? It's kind of random.

    The couple of times I parked at Pinnacle it was severely backed up. Of course Nissan can back up too. With all the building I've heard about since my last trip didn't know how much else changed.

    Sometimes I can hit Pinnacle on a light day, others it's a 45 minute wait just to start moving. And if they decide to route me the wrong way that adds another 15 minutes.

    Can you buy a one way shuttle to Lot D for after the game? I kinda like to stroll over the river before the game.

    They don't sell one way shuttle passes but I don't suppose you have to use it both ways if you don't want to. It's $3 round trip.

    Pro shop or Nissan entrance are both close with pro shop slightly closer. Pro shop entry has elevator if you need to avoid stairs. Pro shop is across from that section but it is lower than concourse level.
