Here's the basic plan for the weekend - I'll post additional details as I have them . . .
Friday evening 10/28 - Meet and Greet in the Suite!
Check-in to rooms as people arrive
Our "Party Central" suite will be open starting at 5:00 pm, until everyone crashes for the night! The suite location will be posted in the lobby, and the desk clerk will have it also. We'll have bar setups, munchies, goody bags, and weed trading - also some Yes music and videos, and a few surprises . . .
Fun is GUARANTEED!
Dinner is "on your own". There are a number of restaurants in the immediate area. Feel free to bring your food back to the suite and enjoy the company!
Saturday 10/29 - Nashville Sightseeing, Dinner, Jam Session
Breakfast in the lobby as people wake up, then join us in the suite!
10:00- Nashville sightseeing and lunch - We will leave the Hampton Inn around 10:00 and visit Nashville's "roundabout", the Music Row area, and the Parthenon in Centennial Park. Lunch will be at Cafe Coco near Elliston Place. After lunch, those who want to do more kid-oriented activities will do so - more details about the kid activities will be in a subsequent post. Those remaining can browse the shops on Elliston Place, then we'll head downtown to sample Nashville's music/art/history with a tour of the "District", after which we'll set a rendevous point, and people can visit sites of interest. We'll return to the Hampton Inn around 4:00, or whenever everyone gets tired!
5:15 - 7:30 - Dinner at Ellendale's. This is an elegant restaurant in an old house just down the street from the Hampton Inn. The menu will appeal to everyone, I think, and they have an excellent wine list to boot! We'll have a private dining room for our party. Check out their web site at
8:00 - 2:00 am??? - Jam session in the "Close to the" Edgewood Room at the Music City Sheraton. A shuttle will return us to the Hampton Inn anytime before midnight, otherwise people can feel free to bring their cars, or take a cab. The Sheraton is only a 2-3 minute drive from the Hampton Inn.
Sunday 10/30 - Checkout and Brunch
Breakfast in lobby/meet in suite as people awake
11:15-1:30 - Champagne brunch at the 101st Airborne Restaurant. This is an atmospheric place full of 40's romance . . . an excellent spread for brunch with made-to-order omelets, numerous breakfast/lunch entrees and veggies, salad/fruit/bread/cheeses, and a dessert bar to die for! Once again, we'll have a private dining room for our party.
Afterwards . . . goodbyes and departures . . .
