Not since opening night of SATC2 have I seen so many women so excited. In fact, though I’ve seen many-an- art- enthusiast enjoying exhibits at the Frist, I’ve never been bumped along in a crowd as happy…downright jubilant…as last night.
Staycations are about making-like-Dorothy and finding fun in one’s own backyard. For the fifteenth year the Nashville Scene is hosting free movies in Centennial Park.
Holding tongs with pinky extended, Aunt Cat would fill glasses from the ice bucket, offering us Cokes, coconut macaroons, Fig Newtons, and shortbread cookies with chocolate icing. Classic treats made special by a silver tray.
Something about Germantown reminds me of those genteel weekends in Gracey, Kentucky. It also transports me to adult getaways in Savannah and Charleston.
Weekends are for escape, and sometimes all we need is a change of zipcode.
Many I know will be doing staycations…due to the national economy and Nashville’s recovery. So in the spirit of making lemons into Lemon Thyme Martinis (a specialty of my friend Kim) and because I’ve always told my kids there’s too much to learn and enjoy to ever be bored, I’ll be sharing local treasures I’ve found on my quests for Fun in the Sun.
