    Breakfast: Pancake Pantry

    If you’ve ever been in Hillsboro Village on a Saturday or Sunday between about 9 am and noon, or, well, really any day at any time, you’ve seen the line that forms around the block leading to the door of Pancake Pantry. Patrons are bundled up in the winter and wiping sweat off their foreheads in the summer, but the Nashville tradition is worth the wait. Just ask Garth Brooks – it’s his favorite breakfast spot in the city.

    Activity: Bus Tour to see the stars’ homes

    Check out some of Nashville’s most prestigious neighborhoods led by guides who know their stuff. You’ll see the homes of Alan Jackson, Martina McBride (pictured), Trace Adkins, and even Dolly Parton from the window of the bus as you listen to stories about the Nashville landmarks. Be sure to bring your camera – maybe you’ll see someone famous unloading groceries from the car, or playing in the front yard with the kids.

    Lunch: Yellow Porch

    How many places can you name that serve a sweet tea cured pork chop, a Mediterranean vegetable lasagna, and a delicious fresh fish and shellfish paella all on one menu? The Yellow Porch is a unique mix of cuisines favored by the artists recording just down the street at Blackbird Studios. Blackbird clients include Miley Cyrus, the White Stripes, Black Eyed Peas, and many more – all of whom could be seen any given day at the Yellow Porch!

    Activity: Shopping at Hill Center

    With a mix of high-end chains and local boutiques, it’s no wonder the rich and famous love to shop at the Hill Center. Celebs love to do their grocery shopping at Whole Foods, one of the shopping center’s anchors. Taylor Swift has been spotted shopping with her mother for new clothes at Anthropologie. Sheryl Crow has been spotted driving through as well! Let us know who you see!

    Dinner: The Palm

    Tennessee Titans coach Jeff Fisher and his team love to come to the Palm and to get their fill of massive cuts of red meat and seafood, family-style sides, and unique cocktails. The Palm is a nationwide tradition, but Nashville has made it feel one-of-a-kind by painting caricatures of local celebrities on the walls all around the dining room. Sitting right in the heart of lower Broadway across the street from Bridgestone Arena, this is the perfect place to eat before seeing your favorite musicians, comedians, and other performers take the stage.

    Activity: Whiskey Kitchen/Patterson House

    Whiskey Kitchen is synonymous with Kings of Leon – they are spotted there so often that Nashville Scene wondered if their next album would be called “Live from Whiskey Kitchen.” The open-air restaurant in the Gulch features over 100 different brands of – what else? – whiskey, as well as typical bar food that has been spiced up in Southern flair.

    According to the Patterson House story, the bar got its name from Tennessee Governor Malcolm Patterson, who was anti-Prohibition in a time when that was an unpopular stance to take in the Bible belt. In honor of the anti-Prohibition hangouts, Patterson House is set up to feel like a 1920’s speakeasy. The bar is famous for its handcrafted libations and for the entertainment that comes with ordering drinks from the Jazz Age, many of which come with the signature giant ice sphere specially made to keep the cocktails from becoming too watery.
