It was so great to see everyone at the last Nashville travel meetup in May at East Nashville Beer Works. Now that it is easy to get vaccinated, we’re going to restart hosting monthly meetups around Nashville so that we can chat about our latest travel adventures, upcoming trips, and news from the world of miles and points.
Join our Facebook Group or Meetup.com group
While I enjoy jumping on Facebook regularly, I understand that not everyone else does. So, I created a Meetup.com group for Music City Miles & Points as well.
Join either (or both) group to stay up to date on the latest news and events here in Nashville.
- Music City Miles & Points Facebook Group. The group is active and members regularly share news and travel deals. This is the more robust platform for interaction among the group members.
- Music City Miles & Points Group on Meetup.com. I just started the group, so it is currently just a listing of upcoming events. It’s a good option for advance notice of upcoming events when you aren’t on Facebook.
Please RSVP on one of these two platforms so that we know how many people are expected to attend. Thanks!
Meetup at Nectar Urban Cantina on Saturday 6/19
The next Nashville travel meetup will be at Nectar Urban Cantina in the Donelson neighborhood of Nashville, TN. We held a meetup here back in Fall 2019 and the food was delicious, the drinks were tasty, and the back patio is perfect for enjoying the afternoon weather.
The meetup will be held on Saturday, June 19, 2021, at 1 pm. Plan on arriving hungry, because Nectar has an excellent menu that incorporates seasonal items and focuses on fresh, healthy Mexican food. Bring your favorite dining rewards credit card to maximize the points and miles on your order.
They also have a variety of refreshing drinks for adults and kids. Adults can choose from a wide selection of tasty drinks, including margaritas, sangrias, Moscow Mules, and Picker’s Blueberry Lemonade. You’ll also find coffee drinks, fresh juices, and smoothies at the Nectar Cafe inside.
While there isn’t a playground for kids to play on at Nectar, the back patio is huge. Kids can run around and explore the fenced-in area without wandering off too far.
Nectar Urban Cantina is located at 206 McGavock Pike. It’s just off of Lebanon Pike about 2 miles from the 40 Freeway or less than a mile from the 155 Freeway.
Upcoming Nashville events
We’re working to get our schedule planned out in advance so that people who want to attend can arrange their calendars.
Our next event will be on July 31, 2021, at 1 pm at the Yazoo Taproom just outside of Nashville. Yazoo is another local brewery that belongs to Hop Passport. Save 20% on your Hop Passport and get it for only $20 when you use my promo code “BALD” at checkout. You’ll receive 50% off your first two beers at every participating brewery, and you’ll easily cover the costs by visiting 3 to 4 local breweries before the end of the year.
The Bald Thoughts
We’re looking forward to seeing everyone again and welcoming new members from the Meetup.com community. Although the Music City Miles & Points Meetup.com group has only been active for a couple of days, more than 10 people have already joined! It will be good to make new friends and introduce even more people to reducing the cost of traveling through the power of miles and points.
