Happy Thanksgiving, Nashville. We are thankful for you and our amazing community each and every day. We couldn’t do what we do without you. ❤️

We hope many of you get to spend time with friends and family — and whether you’re the host or the guest, we’ve chosen some dinner table topics so you don’t have to. Skip the politics, folks, because there’s plenty of interesting things going on in Music City to spark conversation. ⬇️

  • Who doesn’t love some friendly competition? Take your best guesses at if/when it will snow this year in Nashville, then compare your answers to the Old Farmer’s Almanac predictions. Pro tip: Winner gets the first piece of pie.
  • Let’s talk sports. Nashville SC recently won the first round of the MLS Cup Playoffs (3-1) against Orlando City SC + will face off against Philadelphia Union on Sun., Nov. 28. Plan a watch party with friends, or sweet-talk that family member from Philly into letting you crash locally. 
  • Is it a tradition to get a Christmas tree this week? Chat about which local holiday-themed pop-up you should all go to afterwards to keep the festivities going.
  • Impress out-of-towners with local trivia. Did you know that a Vanderbilt student played a part in introducing seeing-eye dogs to the US in the 1920s or that the Maxwell House coffee you may have sipped on this morning originated in Nashville?
  • Entertaining guests through the weekend? Plan the itinerary with this list of 40+ local activities.
  • And of course, you can’t go wrong with music. Talk about what local releases you’re looking forward to, or turn your guests on to new Nashville artists

Cheers to a day filled with rest and time spent with loved ones
