Week of Fun 2011: Day 2

Coleman Community Center
With all the food we're eating this week, we decided to start the morning off right and work on our fitness.  Around the corner from us is our awesome community center and we use the gym there.  (Only $3!)  Our Woodbine Farmer's Market sets up here on Saturdays.  They also offer Zumba, Yoga, Boot Camp and other great classes.  

Baja Burrito
We cannot get enough Baja Burrito.  It's dangerously close to our house so we eat here often.  OK.  Weekly.  Well, sometimes bi-weekly.  Mexican food is good for us "glutenites".  We order our burritos "naked" with no tortilla.  Hormone-free chicken, grass-fed beef.  Local ingredients.  THE best fruit tea.  There's almost always a line and you may bump elbows with the stranger next to you...but it's totally worth it.

Oh, and we ran into our pal, Micah Smith!  We love that guy!

The Frist Center
Thanks to a cheap Groupon we bought last October, we are members of the Frist Center for the Visual Arts.  I'm ashamed to say that this is the first time we've visited.  Silly, right?

Right now there is an Andy Warhol exhibit.  We loved it.  It's a total Pop Culture feast for your senses.  Screenprints, paintings, photos, videos.  If you live in Nashville, it's a piece of history definitely worth seeing.

The Green Wagon
Next, we headed to East Nashville for a little shopping and food.  East Nashville is where the word "artisan" is very much overused.  Lol.  You can expect to see Smart Cars, Dread Locks, Birkenstocks.    I'm a hippie at heart and I love this little "green" store called The Green Wagon.  They have all kinds of wonderful eco goodies.  You know...like if you run out of vegan cranberry dental floss, you can pick it up here.  I'm not kidding.

In the back there is a new little g-free bakery called Aunt April's.  It was closed but I can't wait to go back and try it!

Wantanbe Sushi
Also in East Nashville, is Wantanbe.  Our friends Zac & Erin met us here for some great food. Sushi!

Billy's friend, Jon, is the bartender here.

Patterson House
For little night cap, we headed to Patterson House which is kind of a dark, mysterious, little lounge that feels a bit like a speakeasy.  They make specialty drinks from scratch and Erin claims that she ordered the beverage she's ever had in her entire life.

I was in need of some chocolate so I ordered the S'mores.  Unfortunately I could only eat the gooey middle.  Yes, I  looked extremely classy and lady-like while doing this.   The marshmallows were homemade.  Delish.

They bring your receipt to you in an old book of signatures. Pretty cool.
