It is our ninth Blathering (!), and every year it feels a little bit like magic when the agenda starts to fall into place. We always appreciate your patience as we try to pick the best places, to accommodate our lovely group. We are still fine-tuning some of the details, but we were too excited to wait. Check back here for updates as we get closer to May.
*all bolded activities are part of your registration fee
Thursday night, 8pm
Welcome drinks at the hotel’s bar, The District. The organizers will be having their annual dinner this night, for last-minute planning, but we’ll be ready for a drink around 8pm! Meet you there.
Breakfast at Pancake Pantry. They don’t take reservations, but we have given them a heads-up about our group size. You’ll sit first come, first serve. (We’ll ask for RSVPs closer to the event.)
Dinner at Buffalo’s Nashville. We’ll have a private room, a buffet-type dinner, and two drink tickets per person (beer or wine). We’ll also have access to a pool table and arcade games. In walking distance from the hotel.
Breakfast at South. We have a reservation, and individual checks will be issued. (A couple of words for you to plan your budget accordingly: BOTTOMLESS. MIMOSAS.) About a 30-minute walk, so you might want to Uber/take a cab to this. (We’ll ask for RSVPs closer to the event.)
Ice cream treat from Jeni’s. TBD location.
Sit down late lunch/early dinner at The Stillery. (We know this is earlier than usual, but
it was the only way to secure the space for our group size.) Menu details to come, but drinks will be at your own expense at this meal. (Though we will make sure no tips are automatically added!) In walking distance from the hotel.
Saturday, after-dinner drinks/hanging out
Details to come, but you can’t get rid of us at 6pm, oh no. We’ll plan something to enjoy our last night in Nashville.
Pastries and coffee will be brought to Riverfront Park for a final meal and goodbye!
Final organizers’ note: If there’s anything you’d like to plan separately, please feel free to! We love seeing unofficial activities led by others pop up. Use Facebook to advertise your ideas or to organize your group within the group. And if you have any questions, we ask that you email them to firstname.lastname@example.org (much easier for us to address over email than via social media)!
