After the OR Wednesday morning, I had a quick lunch with SMS before heading to the airport. I thought that San Jose airport would be sleepier than it was and I had a mild amount of alarm when I saw the TSA line but it all worked out. I arrived late in the evening and since the course started at 11 the next day, I was able to sleep in a bit.

Friday was all business, mixed with a little fun. The course continued to be incredible. That evening, Dr. Haynes and his wife hosted a dinner catered by Hattie B's hot chicken. Oh my word. The food was everything that Thursday's was not, Jeni's and fried pickles excluded. The chicken was amazing and the sides delicious. There were different heat levels of chicken, collard greens, macaroni n cheese and an incredible key lime pie bite at the end. Oh my goodness. I am hungry just typing this! The company was also great. The Vanderbilt department are my new professional idols- they are so smart, accomplished and personable all at the same time. They were so nice to put on the course and share their expertise. I was really impressed and very grateful to be there!

Other artists that I saw included Steve Earle, Gillian Welch and Valerie June. It was pretty spectacular. The concert ended around 11 and although I wanted to check out the Bluebird Cafe, I didn't think I would get in so I took in the S. Broadway scene for a little bit. There are so many bachelorette parties in Nashville! I went to Acme Feed and Seed before grabbing a piece of pizza, where I met even more new friends including a guy who loved his nickname Sandwich (his given name is Reuban).
