Good morning, friends! Heads up: I just realized that this post is entirely about Nashville, so I hope you don’t mind the Music City madness that is about to take place.Today I had an easy run with no real route planned. I started running with absolutely zero direction and was feeling bored. So I decided to design a course around all of my favorite East Nashville murals. Starting in Five Points:Then onto 11th street, heading toward Shelby Ave:Down Boscobel, to the stadium, and back up Main Street…and one last stop on Woodland Street to see this beauty!
What a spirited run! This was my first solo/easy run in a while, so it was nice to have little landmarks to look forward to along the way.
On my way home, I also passed by The Silly Goose — Nashvillians, did you hear that this place suddenly closed? Sad.
I guess it was good timing for me, though — because I randomly remembered to use a Silly Goose gift card only a week or so before the restaurant shut down! In my opinion, Silly Goose did lunch way better than they did dinner. Their sandwiches were heavenly. And their iced green tea! If only they could have given me the recipe before stripping me of this joy. I’m going to miss that.
For my (unkowingly) final meal at Silly Goose, I ordered the “T-Bone” sandwich, which was stuffed with honey ham, cheese, fennel, and a tomato-olive spread. The best part: rosemary-olive oil bread! And that couscous. So herby and green. I’m getting a little teary-eyed just thinking about it.R.I.P., Silly Goose. I’m glad we got to share a final meal together before you closed!
- Locals: What do you think about the Silly Goose shut-down?! (Totally random, but I hope we get something good in the vacant space)
- Favorite mural in Nashville? (I’m fond of the grey-and-white East Nashville one pictured above)
- What city do you live in? On a scale of 1-10, how good is your city for running? (I’d give Nashville a 7)
