Let me start from the beginning. We were scheduled to go to Nashville for my brother’s hockey exhibition game so we decided to visit some attractions.

Since I had a hockey game in the morning, we had a little delay. But on the road to Nashville, we found out that we were in the Central Time Zone! It was a surprise to us because we thought we were running late. We had another hour to get there.

When we arrived, we checked out the Hattie B’s Hot Chicken. The line went out of the restaurant. Outrageous!

Since we did not have much time, we decide not to wait and went to eat at the Peg Leg Porker, one of the most famous BBQ stops in Nashville. I liked their dry rub ribs.

We then stopped by the Tennessee State Museum. The exhibits featured many articles of Tennessee history.

Another branch of the museum, the Military Museum, was just across the street. Since we were learning about the Spanish American War in class, I was very interested in that exhibit.

We then headed to the Bridgestone Arena for my brother’s hockey exhibition game, our first NHL game! The players played quite forcefully. I started to feel I prefer games with minor teams such as the one with the Capitals at Center Ice Arena…

After the game, we stayed at a nearby hotel.  Next morning, we visited the Country Music Hall Of Fame.

After the catchy beats and the creative outfits, we decided to try the Hattie B’s chicken again. The line was still incredibly long. But we eventually get to place our order!!!! But then, another 40 mins we had to wait for our order!!!!!DevilDevilDevil. Anyway, the chicken was amazing. The skin was not too crunchy, the flavor was indeed spicy, and the meat was cooked perfectly.

We then visited Centennial Park’s Parthenon to take a look at the fake Athena Parthenos. In the movie The Lightning Thief, they came to take shots here…The stunning gold and ivory statue was about 42ft.

An amazing weekend of sightseeing and fun, it was time to go home.
