Luke Bryan visits the Republic of Burger
Luke Bryan continues to be the most spotted big star in town lately, and it’s really fun that he likes to get out and about so much. Luke was recently spotted at a new trendy Nashville hamburger place called Burger Republic. I’ll let Zagat describe this place. “Burger Republic might be a relative newcomer to Nashville’s famed burger scene, but it’s managed to embody the essence of an entire state between a nice set of buns.” WHAT? “Nothing says Tennessee quite like the Tennessee Burger, loaded with maple-glazed Benton’s Bacon, American cheese, crispy BBQ onions and smoked ketchup, and topped off with a Jack Daniel’s honey glaze.” Oh. BTW, there are two locations, both in areas that are growing wildly in size and hipness. Luke was eating at the one in Lennox Village, about 20 minutes south of downtown. The other is in The Gulch, just south of downtown. BTW, part II: This place has the BEST milkshakes in the world! Nutella/vanilla ice cream is my fave.
Chris Young loves his pizza with a little soul
When you think pizza, Nashville might not be the first place that jumps into your head. But hey, things are looking up on that front. There’s a cool new place called Soulshine Pizza, near Music Row, which is a hip live music joint that happens to serve some pretty good pizza. And it’s there that Chris Young was spotted a couple of weeks ago. Dare I say that’s not the most famous celeb spotting in or around Soulshine Pizza. Have you seen this video? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xlQkvvVGJhI That’s golfer John Daly smacking a tee shot off someone’s mouth in the Soulshine Pizza parking lot. Only in Nashville, folks….
Honky Tonk Central is open for business – and celebrities
It’s right in the middle of Lower Broadway, and it’s huge, three stories to be exact. Honky Tonk Central often has different bands on all three floors, which makes the place exciting – and pretty loud! And it’s getting quite the buzz. Dierks Bentley and Thomas Rhett stopped by recently to take a CMT Top 20 countdown show there, and yes, the public could just drift on it and be a part of it. The other great thing about the place – keep going from floor to floor and you’ll work off all the beer you’re drinking!
