Football
Plenty of Football to see this weekend. The Tennessee Titans’ next preseason home game will be, September 3, at Nissan Stadium against the Minnesota Vikings. Then, the Vanderbilt Commodores will take on the Western Kentucky Hilltoppers, September 3, at Vanderbilt Stadium. Plus, the University of Tennessee Volunteers will take on the Bowling Green Falcons, on September 5, at Nissan Stadium. AND finish the weekend by watching the Tennessee State University Tigers take on the Alabama State University Hornets during the John A. Merritt Classic.

Food
Don’t you even think about starting that oven, or turing on the stove. You work too much and you deserve to be catered. Head to one of Nashville’s many amazing restaurants and eat a meal cooked by a Nashville chef. Explore Nashville’s food scene here: visitmusiccity.com/food.

Relax
Maybe you don’t want to do something specific, but just enjoy the day relaxing. That’s completely understandable and sounds perfect.
