Going Country in Nashville
In the mood for a snack and some country music, we went to Tootsie’s Orchid Lounge in Nashville, Tennessee. We thought we wouldn’t attract the attention of anyone there, but we were clearly out of context. Everybody except us was wearing huge hats, fancy boots and leather all over, and they were screaming and singing the songs. It was one of the best bar experiences I’ve ever had. Later, in an effort to blend in, we went to a boot store. But people were laughing as we tried on outfits—I guess we didn’t have the true country spirit.
