Today marks the third day of our Nashville Staycation series! In this series we are giving readers a planned themed day out on the town to escape from your jobs, but not spend too much money by going on a vacation.
Today’s theme is Guys Day Out. This theme is designed for all of the guys who want to take time and enjoy a day in Nashville spent free from any worries.
Guys Day Out
It’s no secret that Mad Donna’s is the place to go for a flavorful and creative brunch, and with a slogan like, “a neighborhood restaurant as unique as East Nashville,” it seems they know it too! Menu items like the Crab Cake Benny and the Breakfast Burger contribute to Mad Donna’s tasty reputation. Not to mention, the hearty plates are perfect for the morning of a “guys day out!”Mad Donna’s 1313 Woodland Street 226-1617 Or visit their website here
Morning Activity: Centennial Sportsplex
Whatever your sport may be—swimming, hockey, tennis, etc.—Centennial Sportsplex is where you’ll want to be on your “guys day out.” Get a group together and go out on the ice for a game of hockey or just skate around during a public skating session. Whatever sport you may choose to play, be sure to call ahead a reserve a spot!Centennial Sportsplex 224 25th Ave N 862-8490 Visit their website here
Lunch: Baja Burrito
You may have seen the bright painted VW Beetles along Thompson Lane or been lucky enough to have the fragrant smell of burritos waft in through your rolled-down window as you sit at the stoplight. However your first Baja experience happened, we can guarantee it was wonderful, because Baja Burrito is wonderful. There is nothing on the menu that doesn’t seem notable, so we just recommend returning until you’ve had the chance to try it all!Baja Burrito 722 Thompson Lane 383-2252 Visit their website here
Afternoon Activity: Yazoo Brewery
You can find Dos Perros or the Pale Ale on tap just about anywhere in the Nashville area. In fact, Yazoo’s brews are so popular that by 2010—only six years after their start—they had already outgrown their original brewery. Visit the wildly-popular brewery and take a tour to learn all about the brewing process. Tours include a 6oz. souvenir glass and plenty of samples along the way. Be sure to book in advance, Yazoo tours fill up quickly!Yazoo Brewery 910 Division Street 891-4649 Visit their website here
Dinner: Pour House
Pour House Burgers, Bourbon, and Brews opened relatively recently and is already quite popular for its Prohibition Era theme—and for its food and drinks. With one of the largest selections of bourbons in the city and an impressive list of craft brews on draught, Pour House is sure to be a hit for “guys day out!”Pour House Burgers, Bourbon, and Brews 730 8th Ave S 736-5727 Visit their Facebook page here
