Hit & Run — A Must See

Monday night CMT teamed up with Regal Green Hills Cinema to hold a “sneak peek” screening of the new movie Hit & Run and invited Nashville Lifestyles to come along! Produced by the hilarious minds behind Wedding Crashers, the movie stars Kristen Bell, Dax Shepard, Kristin Chenoweth, Bradley Cooper, and Tom Arnold swept up in a love story/action flick. Think something along the lines of love story meets high-action chase. Add in a crazy, unpredictable, sometimes violent excursion and you’ve got Hit & Run. Never a dull moment!
Hit & Run Movie Promo

Real-life and extremely likable couple Kristin Bell (Co-host of the 2012 CMT Music Awards) and Dax Shepard showed off their genuine chemistry in the off-beat romance, but in my opinion—hands down—Tom Arnold stole the show! He had the audience laughing at nearly every scene. If you’re looking for a good laugh or an action rom-com, go see Hit & Run. The movie opens today,  Wednesday, August 22—click here for showtimes.

WATCH THE TRAILER

Make it a date and stop in to Table 3 before or after the movie to have a quick drink or delicious dinner on their patio! If you didn’t have plans for Wednesday night…well, now you do. You’re welcome.

Somewhat irrelevant to the movie, but if you are not one of the 12 million people who have viewed this youtube video (not an exaggeration) of the always entertaining Kristen Bell’s 31st birthday sloth meltdown…amazing, please watch! Dax, good luck topping that for her 32nd.

Ziplining through the Night

Last Saturday I found myself nestled in a 40-acre forest, in a scenic bend of the Harpeth River. Kingston Springs at sunset is beautiful, but I wasn’t quite sure what I was in for…

This would not only be my first zipline tour—but friends and I decided on the full moon zip tour. I was going to be strapped in to a harness, climb up a tall platform and throw myself out into the night sky across a thin wire. No big deal. But the full moon and good friends make you do crazy things—so all fears aside—I was actually really excited. The other ‘zippers’ (as we were called) and I were placed into groups differentiated by colored glow sticks around our necks (go blue team!). Each group had two tour guides who gave a tutorial on how to put on your gear and how to strap yourself in. Shout out to the best two guides ever—Jen and Biz! We were off to the first zip run before we knew it. This was a warm up to get the feel of things…

Adventureworks Zipline

Ok, this isn’t me. Trying to take pictures while zip lining at night doesn’t work so well. You get the idea.

Essentially the first guide would whiz to the end and be there waiting for you. Then, we climbed up on the platform and strapped ourselves in for the ride. My first zip was a little foreign; jumping into the pitch black forest hanging from a cord… I mean talk about a rush! After that I got the hang of things. With each jump my confidence rose—and so did the height and length of the jumps. At one point we were rushing over three-football-field lengths, going thirty-five miles an hour. So exhilarating! I am most definitely going back in the fall to experience this during the daytime. Over at Adventureworks there are a variety of challenge courses, swings, leaps and of course zip tours to choose from: Full Moon Zip, Polar Bear Zip, Sweetheart Zip, Firefly Zip, and Haunted Forest Zip.  Not your typical weekend plans, but my advice—check it out!

Nashville Lifestyles’ History Issue

We learned so much about Nashville’s storied past putting together this issue! Like, did you know that there was a great flood in 1926 similar to the recent flooding or that Nashville’s Parthenon was built to celebrate Tennessee’s 100-year anniversary in 1897 and was meant to be torn down? From Cheekwood to Harpeth Hall, Carton Plantation to The Union Gospel Tabernacle (later known as the Ryman), we’ve got all the city’s amazing historical secrets.

Our online gallery has dozens of amazing historical photos and fun facts. View it HERE.
