Good morning, Nashville!I just spent 20 minutes prepping dinner for tonight (yes, I make dinner at 7 am because I’m crazy, and because I am obsessed with our slow cooker) so am going to have to keep this post short and sweet!
This morning I apparently met up with East Nasty for a run. I don’t remember because I was still asleep.We did a similar route through the city that I basically ran yesterday — with a detour around the “Demonbreun Hill” statue. Apparently Demonbreun Hill is trying to market itself as its own little neighborhood. I would never live there because duh, it’s on a hill. But anyways. Good run!Just so you know, I DO own a watch that is not a Garmin. It’s a lovely rose gold Fossil watch that Anthony got me about three years ago. Its battery finally died the other day and I’ve been totally lost on time ever since.Nashvillians: Have you checked out Onyx? I’d been curious about this little shop located down on Gallatin (by one of the many Cash & Loan stores and Taco Bell) and was surprised to see it pop up when I Googled “watch repair East Nashville.” Yep — this place does coffee AND watch repair. What a random but amazing business concept. (Sorry for the overexposed photo, I don’t know what my phone was doing)And they do vintage clothes and jewelry, too! What a crazy shop. While the owner replaced my watch battery I sipped a really tasty coffee. In five minutes my watch was back on time and I’d gotten my caffeine fix for just $12.Pretty awesome experience! Next time you are on Gallatin Road getting quick loans, liquor, or tacos, be sure to stop by Onyx for a coffee, chitchat, and vintage scarf.
And that’s it! I just wrote this blog post in under 10 minutes which might just be a new blog-writing PR. Forgive typos.
- Locals: Been to Onyx?
