actually... I don't mind a bit of window shoppin'... (I saw the "shopping outlets" on MS Visual Earth image) Im going to be working within football kickin' distance of the Nashville airport (int'l?!)so I'm sure the hotel is likely to be near... (Elm Hill Pike Rd. ...)
There is a nice mall there, Opry Mills I think its called.
Has a Bass Pro, Tool Store, and all the normal fare. Several restaurants, One of which I like is Jillians. They have several sections. When you come in from the mall side it is like and Arcade on one side and rest./bar on other. Walk back past the arcade and it opens up into a full blown sports bar with TVs galore. Of to one side of that is a bowling alley and then a pool hall. They also have as I recall like a Japanese still cook at the table rest. in there.
If this is not your style there are several other restaurants in there. Dont plan to go early on Friday as Im sure there will be droves of bargain hunters and a real mad house.
