Biking to brunch—and beyond—in Nashville

On Sunday I had a little bike brunch with Whitney, a LGRAB reader who recently moved to Nashville. After a hearty meal at Fido, we decided to head to the Frist to catch the new Birth of Impressionism exhibit. (Funny story — my coworker was in Paris just after we were this Fall and went to the d’Orsay hoping to see the painting of Whistler’s mother. It wasn’t there—because it was on its way to Nashville.)

We got to the museum a few minutes before opening time, so we took a few photos.

The Frist used to be Nashville’s main post office, back in the 30s when the USPS was a source of national pride, and the building is an Art Deco masterpiece. Even the benches have those crisp, architectural edges.

It’s been a long time since I went on a bike ride with friends in my own city, and it felt great.

If you want to go on a group ride in Nashville — you’re in luck. I’m leading a Tweed Ride on Sunday, November 21. We’ll be meeting at 2 pm in Fannie Mae Dees (aka Dragon) park. More details about the route will come in a post of their own, tomorrow…

    But where are the people ? No one at the front door a few minutes before opening ?

      They were all waiting in line, inside, for the ticket booth to open. As we discovered when we walked in. It was great to see so much interest in the exhibit!
