we made it home after night one. somehow we managed to catch the madhouse that was breakfast at our hotel and prepared for our long day.
we made our way to 2nd street to grab some grub. nothing caught our eye so we kept walking to broadway. that is until i saw a sign for a bloody mary bar. soulmate. we walked into the bar and i realized i ate lunch there when training a group in nashville 2 or 3 years ago. i remembered the food was good, so we stayed. the name of this gem? past perfect.
here’s my make your own bloody mary complete with house distilled green olive vodka. yum-0.
past perfect spelicized in house-infused liquors and old-school drinks so of course i had to try their speciality, the perfect mule. an adult root beer. check out the drink menu/ingredients in the background.
five hours, and two meals, later we decided to make our way to the stadium for game time. this is the view of 2nd street from the bridge that takes you to the stadium.
there were quite a bit of kentucky fans. they were surprisingly friendly folks. this fella was rather spirited until he passed out in the second half. it was such a great experience, frozen toes and all. i knew we were up for good when the kentucky fans started talking about basketball. 🙂
i purchsed this fab hat right before the game. this is the best 5 dollars i’ve ever spent. well, that and the hot chocolate in the 4th quarter.

we’ll miss you cj! mvp of the music city bowl!
what a fabulous trip! check out ashlee’s account of the events here.
on the way back home ashlee and i stopped in clemson for our somewhat annual ornament swap luncheon. the 608 berkeley place girls have had the opportunity to meet up a lot this year and i’m in a slight depression without seeing these girls so often. we’re trying to come up with a girls trip next summer but we’re a little stumped. any ideas? chicago is out. that’s all we’ve got. 🙂
