So. Two and a half years ago, I stopped in Nashville for a night while driving — on my way to my first Dragon*Con in Atlanta. It was the week Covenant, my first novel was released in mass market paperback, and so, I ended up doing the very first booksigning for my novel in Nashville at the West End Borders Books.
On my way driving into town to that Borders, I passed a brewpub a few blocks away (they always catch my eye) called Blackstone Brewery. I didn’t get to stop that trip… and have subsequently been in Nashville a handful of times but didn’t get back to this particular area to check them out.
Right now? I’m in Nashville’s West End for a few days on a business trip, and tonight I’m working on some new fiction at Blackstone Brewery which happens to be just a block and a half from my hotel. And you know what? They have an amazing Nut Brown Ale. Thank you life, for spinning my wheels far and wide. And if you’re ever in Nashville – give Blackstone Brewery a stop. Try their Nut Brown Ale. And then have another. Their steaks aren’t bad either.
