After spending the weekend in Milan, Weenie and I headed to Nashville for the Raconteurs show. We left around 3:30 and arrived at 5:30. We checked into the Holiday Inn on Broadway and tried to figure out where we were going for predrinks.

We decided to head down the street where Tootsie's and a lot of other bars are located. It was sort of deserted and we didn't want BBQ so we walked to the former Eddie George's sports bar. We'd been there before and knew the food and drinks were good.

Being slightly hungover from Friday at the Milan Golf & County Club, we started off slowly with beers. Then chicken wings were ordered along with blueberry Stoli lemon drops. If you haven't tried one, next time you are at a bar, order one. They are delicious.

The show started at 8:00 and we finally paid our tab around 8:45. We were meeting some of Weenie's coworkers at the show. We had no trouble parking and walked in and ordered beers. The show started at 9:15. Thank God we made it in! I would've been pissed if we missed the beginning.

Jack came out in a cowboy hat. He's so cute. I took a bunch of pictures but they didn't turn out very good. We weren't that close and it was really dark. Here is a video I took while dancing. Not such a good idea if you are shooting something. I'll try and remember that next time.

Here are the only two pictures that came out and they suck. Enjoy! Jack is in the red.

After the show (which was bad ass), Weenie and I went to 2 more bars until it was closing time. We got back to the hotel around 2:30. Luckily, we were off on Monday and had a late checkout. We left around 12:30 and headed over to Noshville for some hangover food then back to Memphis.
