A Day at the Mall
Day 3 was a slow day. We went to the CoolSprings Galleria in Brentwood/Cool Springs. We ate lunch at the food court, which was average food court fare...
On the way out of the parking lot, I commented that Ramsey Solutions was nearby. About the time the words came out of my mouth, I noticed the Ramsey Solutions building just across the street! This was cool for me for two reasons.
- I've been a Dave Ramsey fan for years. I've read all his books and listen to his radio show & podcast. (Still working that debt snowball...)
- I just went through the interview process with Ramsey Solutions. It didn't work out but I made it to the 3rd round of interviews and I think I learned some things from the experience.
At the mall, we bumped into a friend of ours from Indiana who had just gotten engaged and we got the chance to meet her fiancé, who is from the Nashville area. Congratulations, Dara and Patrick!
Patrick suggested three more places to visit while we were in Nashville. All three were already on my list, but it helped to narrow it down! His suggestions were The Pharmacy, Mas Tacos, and Barista Parlor. We went to The Pharmacy that night and I'm so glad we did...
The Pharmacy is a trendy East Nashville burger joint that has a fun, unique vibe. I got the Farm Burger and it was amazing! The "Provence" bun was flavorful and perfectly toasted. The beef patty was high quality 100% sourced in Tennessee. This was topped with country ham, applewood smoked bacon, willow farm egg, maple mustard, and Havarti cheese. Now, I'm not saying this was better than The 96 at Burger Republic, but it was better than every other burger that I can remember...
I am planning on a blog post in the near future comparing and contrasting the Farm Burger and The 96. That may involve another trip to Nashville for "research". Suffice it to say that a visit to The Pharmacy is just what the doctor ordered and the Farm Burger is the cure for what ails you!
