A night out in Nashville for me used to mean country music and honky tonks. I love country music!
Although I still enjoy that scene occasionally, I have for the most part traded in those days for the comfort of my own couch. Now, there's nothing better, to me, than relaxing at home while eating pizza and watching a good movie.
My husband asked me earlier this week if I would be up for a night out in Nashville Thursday. When I asked him what he had in mind he told me it was a surprise, which indicated it must be something unusual. I love surprises and love Nashville, so I told him, "Of course I'm up for a night out," despite it being a "school night."
We went to Miss Marple's Dinner Theater on Second Avenue. I had been to dinner/movie theaters before, but nothing like this.
Miss Marple's is a dinner/show in which we, the audience has to solve a murder mystery.
For better or worse, It was a very interactive evening. My seat just so happened to be a prime seat for being picked on my the actors, which is not something I enjoy because I'm not fond of being put on the spot.
The food was very plentiful, but it wasn't "gourmet" as indicated on their web site.
We had a good time and met some nice people, but we both agreed that it would be much more enjoyable to experience this sort of entertainment with a group of friends. In fact, we saw several groups there for holiday work parts and such, and they all seemed to have a ball.
Overall, it was interesting, and definitely something different.
Next time I am going to go with a group, and I know just what seat I'll suggest to the obnoxious person in our group!
