Tonight we went to Sardina's, which is one of our favorite places to go on a Friday night and hang out, have a drink, something to eat and relax after a long week. Sardina's is a cozy italian restaurant with great casual ambience, superb food and a wonderful happy hour menu. We love to sit at the bar (with big screen TV's, friendly attentive bartenders and waitstaff) and share an appetizer and salads for dinner. I order a glass of wine but Bruce prefers their IPA on tap. We have been going there on alternating Friday nights long enough now that we're "regulars".
Tonight, while we were there, we were talking about how we would miss Sardinas and then we remembered a restaurant in Clarksville, Tennessee that we wanted to try but it was so busy, we were not able to get into on a Friday night when we were out there visiting. Despite the fact that it was 9:30 at night, the place was packed! Where you ask? It's the Black Horse Pub and Brewery and we're looking forward to eating there after we move.
We have eaten at a lot of wonderful restaurants in Nashville. But, while I am talking about casual fun restaurants, Big River Grille & Brewing Works on Broadway in downtown Nashville, comes to mind. We enjoyed good food, great service, billard tables, big screen TV's and ice cold drinks! On our last trip to Nashville, we ate there with our friends Steve and Pam, before attending a Predator hockey game.
So even though we will miss our Friday nights at Sardina's, we know that we will find favorite places for our Friday nights once we move to Tennessee, too! And we really can't wait!
