Summer, as Ric Ocasek puts it in The Cars' classic seasonal jam "Magic," is like a merry-go-round. A hot, sticky, dehydrating merry-go-round. A blistering, sun-bleached, face-roasting merry-go-round. It's also the season that most drives the American imagination — after all, there's a reason those movies aren't called Corvette Autumn, 500 Days of Winter or Wet, Tepid American Spring. There are the classic hallmarks of summer, like long drives that culminate in tick-picking camping trips and sugar-fueled theme-park romps. But discovering new adventures doesn't necessarily mean leaving the city. So we've scratched the surface to find some of Nashville's hidden gems — from a food truck that puts the "roll" in "eggroll" to an art gallery that would fit on your coffee table: in short, the sorts of things that might go unnoticed in a cursory survey of our summer offerings. Get ready to dive — or pedal or sauté or stroll — into Music City's less well-traveled corners.
