Sounds Game + Patios 

If you're a serious baseball fan, you know the major-league careers Greer Stadium has launched in the last few years — Prince Fielder (youngest MLB player to hit 50 home runs in a season), Ryan Braun (2007 National League Rookie of the Year), Corey Hart (sunglasses at night), and so on. But on a summer afternoon, you need only be a red-blooded American who enjoys the breeze in your hair, the aroma of hot dogs and malted beverages, and the profound crack that pierces the air when a cylinder of flame-tempered hardwood meets a sphere of white leather held together by 108 red stitches.

Baseball is best enjoyed alfresco, and perhaps the only thing better than watching a game from a few rows behind the on-deck circle is to get on a deck yourself. A beer, a beignet, one of each — Nashville, in addition to being the top floor in one of baseball's best minor league systems, is home to a wide variety of outdoor drinking options (though Greer might be the only one that includes a hot tub). Open-air choices range from the New Orleans-inspired Wild Bill's Beignets and Bikes downtown, to Jackson's in Hillsboro Village, to Village Pub and Beer Garden on the East side. Your prospects look good. STEVE HARUCH
