Since we spent the majority of our weekend in (aside from Steve working all Friday night), we decided to get out and grab some breakfast at Sky Blue Cafe yesterday morning. We’ve compiled a list of all the places we’d like to eat in Nashville over the next few months so that we are always trying something new. We sifted through our list of breakfast/brunch spots around town and decided to head out to East Nashville. The first great thing we noticed about Sky Blue, was they had a pot of coffee for those who signed in and waited outside. This made waiting for a table significantly more bearable, especially since it was such a nice morning.
Once we were seated, we glanced at the menu and were already satisfied that we chose this particular place for breakfast. Classic eggs, toast, bacon, pancakes, and french toast options were listed throughout the menu, as well as delectable Benedict dishes, breakfast burritos, and create-your-own omelets.

The second great thing we loved about Sky Blue, was that there were Trivial Pursuit cards on the tables to keep you occupied while waiting for your food. They’re doing it right.
I selected the Eggs Benedict and Steven went for the Build-Your-Own Omelet with Feta, Spinach, Mushrooms, and Peppers. Both dishes were equally satisfying.
The food was delicious and very well-priced. Even if you don’t go for the food, hang out and sip on their coffee, because it too, was amazing.
Next weekend we will choose from over 12 different brunch spots we have yet on our list. It’s so fun being able to visit a new place every time we go out for a bite to eat. It’s one of our favorite ways to explore the city.
Until next time.
I had the incredible privilege of visiting the Homestead Manor in Thompson’s Station, Tennessee this past Sunday with a group of local bloggers. I had heard a few things about the history and elegance of the manor, but had no idea what was in store. I traveled down with my friend Ashley of The Nashvillian, and we were immediately in awe of the site when we pulled into the drive. Complete historical beauty.
We arrived a few minutes early to snap a few photos in front of the house.

On Tuesday night, I attended the Nashville Chapter Launch for the Unscripted Bartender Series with Afrohead Rums with my friend Ashley of The Nashvillian Blog. The event was held at Amari in Hillsboro Village, a dim-lit speakeasy/cocktail lounge with an extensive liquor selection. It was a warm evening, but was fortunately cooler than the few nights prior after a thunderstorm swept through the city. An all-black jumper seemed appropriate for the night.

The Afrohead-specific cocktail menu had a variety of delicious drinks. I first tried the McClure’s Ruse and then ordered the C.R.E.A.M., I was delightfully satisfied with both of my choices.
The concert was amazing. It easily placed itself in one of my top 5 favorite concerts of all-time. If you ever get the chance to see James Bay live, I recommend doing so. His vocals were impeccable and his smooth guitar tones were right on the money.
[Here’s a little video snippet from the concert. Don’t mind the iPhone quality footage.]
Happy hump day, ya’ll!
