Remote Strategist Check-In: Nashville
Part 3 of 5: Postcards from a Southern Road Trip
This is a full-scale replica of the Parthenon in Athens, leftover from the 1897 Tennessee state fair. Because, why not?
AirBnB: Sylvan Park Sanctuary
A sweet older husband and wife team run this AirBnB and it shows. There were handwritten sticky notes all over the apartment with thoughtful suggestions, like post-it notes from your mom. They forgot I was on a group text message with them when one texted: “i love you mr wonderful ;)”
Hattie B’s Nashville Hot Chicken.
So nice, we ate there twice. There’s a diabetes center across the street. Also: the gentrification of fried chicken has been on my mind. Yes, it’s a thing: the new urban fried chicken crisis. 🐔✊
Barely scratched the surface, but I’m hooked on a sound.
The Hatch Show Print
The industrial guts of arts and letters. Music poster printer and American Letterpress since 1879.
