You are probably familiar with Thrillist as your source for fun whether you use it for food, drink, travel or entertainment suggestions. Well, I am pleased to say that Nashville is going to be the host for the 8th Annual Hotel Thrillist! The event is presented by Chase Sapphire and will take place from September 21-23rd. Nashville has been receiving a lot of attention and not just for its huge music scene but also as a destination for foodies and those seeking a good time (“Nash Vegas”). During the weekend-long celebration, Thrillist takes over a hotel (in this case the Westin Nashville) and showcases all the best that city has to offer in 48 hours! I am excited to say that I have been invited to be a Thrillist VIP guest so I will be sharing the event live on social with the hashtag #HotelThrillist to make it easy for you to follow along.

Well, of course I am biased but, Nashville is an amazing city and I think this Hotel Thrillist will be the best yet!
Hotel Thrillist Nashville will kick off with a sprawling feast at BMI Rooftop on The Row that will showcase the Thrillist‘s favorite local restaurants (full list below) – plus craft beer, cocktails, and more. We are talking good food, good drinks, and good company so I am super excited!

Another of the Hotel Thrillist Nashville events that should be a good time is the Saturday Honky-Tonk at Jason Aldean’s, (Saturday 9/22 2PM – 5PM). I bet there are some special surprise musical performances at this fun spot on lower Broadway!
