Today's Note
Please excuse our dust. We're currently working to bring you an even better newsletter. Over the next couple weeks, you may see some things that are still in the works. We're excited for you to see what we've been up to.
💸 Battle of the budgets
Eating out on a budget? No problem.

We’re taking two budgets for a spin to see which has the best bang for your buck. Ready for an adventure? Here’s how you can spend a day in Music City on $10 vs. $100.

$10 budget

Take your $10 (and some change) to Hillsboro Village. Grab a bagel and drip coffee from The Co-Op — we’re looking at $5.20 for the breakfast pairing.

Then, walk a short distance to the Vanderbilt Fine Arts Gallery (Cohen Memorial Hall, 1220 21st Ave. S.). Admission is free, and if you have time, explore other galleries and exhibition spaces on campus.

Here’s where you can choose your own adventure. Steer your walk towards Midtown for lunch at San Antonio Taco Co. Two tacos (regular, crispy, or guacamole) will set you back $5.38. If you’d rather return to Hillsboro Village, pop into Pizza Perfect for a large slice for $4.24 (don’t forget about BOGO slices on Monday evenings).

Finish your day with a stroll through the neighborhood, including a loop around Fannie Mae Dees Park to see the mosaic tile dragons.

Total: $10.58 (if you choose tacos) or $9.44 (if you choose pizza)

$100 budget

Start your day with movement at Shakti Power Yoga. The 1-hour power flow classes are offered for a $22 drop-in price.

Then, refuel at Proper Bagel. Get a New Yorker breakfast sandwich — made with egg, applewood bacon or sage sausage, and cheese — for $8.50, and an iced latte for $5.50. Optional, but recommended: A black and white cookie for $3.50, if available.

While you’re in the neighborhood, shop around at Where the Well Things Are for local products. A bag of High Garden loose leaf tea will set you back $12.

Visit the Belcourt Theatre to catch an early afternoon screening. The arts cinema screens new independent films and monthly repertory selections for $12.50 admission.

For dinner, head to East Nashville to try Xiao Bao. Pair the popular hand-pulled noodles with a cocktail for $29.

Total: $93
It’s time to choose. Are you spending your day on a $10 or $100 budget?

A. $10 is all I need for the day.
B. I’ll take my $100 out on the town.

Stress less at the airport

Planning a spring getaway? Don’t forget to add TSA PreCheck enrollment to your pre-vacay to-do list.

The government program provides an expedited security lane at 200+ airports for travelers that pass a security screening — which includes a short application and a 10-minute in-person enrollment appointment — and are given a Known Traveler Number. Bonus: The screening is good for five years and costs $78.

The main benefit of enrolling? Save time when traveling. Recent data found that 96% of TSA PreCheck passengers spent less than five minutes at airport security checkpoints.

To apply, find out if you are eligible, then fill out an application and schedule an appointment at a nearby enrollment center. Most people will know if their application has been approved within three to five days.

Psst — don’t forget to read our airport guide before heading to BNA, and grab these airport essentials: a memory foam travel pillow, this smart luggage carry-on set, and an AirFly wireless headphones transmitter.
