    Been there numerous times, but I stick to the basics downtown. I'll be there for much of the weekend. Anybody know of some places off the beaten path, or just lesser-known places in and around downtown, that would be worth checking out?

    Opryland Hotel should have its Christmas stuff up if you don't mind seeing that stuff too early. ::) Family and friends loved the "Ice" exhibit there - I was underwhelmed.

    The Ramada (I think) over behind the Titans' stadium has a pool shaped like a guitar.

    I never get tired of walking around Vandy's campus in the fall. Makes me feel smart.

    If you hurry, the Tower Record next to campus might still be having its huge closing sale.

    Where's the campus?

    Campus is off West End Avenue, a couple of miles from the hockey arena.

    If you can't get Southern cooking where you live, fatten up at Sylvan Park and Belle Meade Cafeteria.

    Market Street Brew Pub -- Cajun chicken fettucine
    Wildhorse -- just cause you should see it once...
    Whatever the hell the name of the steak place is on the corner a couple blocks from the GAC...

    And dixie, the ice thing isn't bad, just not worth the hourlong wait...

    Are you thinking Demo's? Absolutely love that place, although I get pasta there instead of steak. My traditional pre-Preds meal. Speaking of which, the lads are home to Colorado Saturday night.

    Was initially planning on seeing that game, but I'm opting for the Black Keys concert instead.

    Yeah, Demos... thanks.
    Ate there for first time during NCAA hoops a couple of years ago.. pasta WAS great, but so were steaks... and I still ove the cajun chicken dish at Market St.

    Am going to head up for the Preds in Feb for a Saturday night gig with the Wings. Parents are coming in for thanksgiving, so it nixes that weekend and the Leafs dont have a weekend game at the GAC...

    Big ups on Demo's!

    I dunno if Vandyland's still open. If so, go there before it shuts down. I'd also recommend Elliston Square Soda Shop.
