We arrived in Nashville around 1PM. We came to see the Grand Old Opry again and it was closed again. We are batting one hundred. The last time we were here they were recovering from water damage, this time they are only open on the weekends. Oh well, there is always next year. After checking in we headed out to the grocery store for some essentials. Then it was off to check out the area. We stopped at the Gay Lord Opry Hotel. It’s an unbelievable place with waterfalls, and tropical gardens inside the hotel. The rooms have balconies that face out toward the gardens. We went to the bar and had two house wines each. The bill came and it was 40 dollars. Nine dollars of the total was sales tax and sin tax. Makes you want to stop drinking. After the drinks we went to the Opry Back Stage Grill for some ribs. The dry rub ribs were extremely dry, almost arid. We would not go back for ribs there again. So we are back at the condo sipping some wine and working on the plans for tomorrow.
