If you like burgers and you like difficult decisions, then bop, bop, bop along to Red Robin, where fast food meets table service. The menu of fixin's and combinations for gourmet burgerseverything from avocado to onion ringsis enough to make your head spin, so you may as well close your eyes and point. Once all the veggies, cheeses and sauces are piled on, it all starts to look and taste a little bit the samewhich, in general, is fresh and filling. — Carrington Fox
Just outside of downtown, near the Vanderbilt stadium, sits Centennial Park. Its 132 acres include a life-sized replica of the Parthenon (which you can tour during business hours), as well as a small lake circled by a flat, mile-long paved running trail, a kid-friendly playground, a couple beach volleyball courts, lots of open ground for impromptu picnics and Frisbee-throwing and it’s also home to some of the best dog watching in the city. The park is currently in the midst of a major renovation that will bring long-buried Cockrill Springs to the surface, create a wetlands garden and more. During the summer the park often hosts live music, food truck gatherings and other festivities, so be sure to check below for event listings.
