7 Unusual Experiences That Unite Every Nashvillian
Here in the South, we love our traditions. There’s just something about old rhythms and memories that give us our roots and make us who we are. But there are still plenty of opportunities in the South that are outside the box, and you’re not living life right if you don’t do them. Especially in Nashville, there are just some experiences that are pretty unique but still manage to unite us all. We listed a couple of them here. What do you think?
7. Eating Hot Chicken
There's nothing unusual about eating a meal together, but there's something about eating a meal that makes you sweat profusely together that just seems to unite people, ya know?
6. Local Concerts
Seeing a band in concert that is from Nashville is a uniting experience for everyone who attends. Especially because probably half of the audience knows someone in the band.
5. Nashville Predators Games
For those who have never been to a Predators game, you don't know what we're talking about. For those who have, you know Predators games have such a unique, fun, and rowdy energy.
4. Honky Tonking
That's right - honky tonking is a verb, and it's way underused. Dancing at a country bar is one of the most communal things you can do in Nashville, and it's a great way to make instant friends.
3. Nashville Festivals
Nashville has more than its fair share of festivals, including the extremely popular CMA Fest and the insanely eclectic Tomato Art Festival in East Nashville (it's exactly what it sounds like).
2. Nashville Weather
For anyone who has lived in Nashville for at least a year, you know that the weather can be 75 and sunny one day and showering the next day. It's borderline bi-polar, but it's something we can all come together and complain about.
1. The Pancake Pantry Line
This one is unique because we all know to avoid the line at Pancake Pantry, and yet we all have that one story about the time we had to wait in it. The sweet potato pancakes make it worth it every time.

this good old-fashioned custard shop just outside of Nashville.
