A Fun Thursday Night


Juliana Musselman

This past week leading up to Thanksgiving has been a tough one. Since it’s getting close to the end of the semester a lot of people (myself included) are beginning to feel the stress of final projects, papers, and other due dates creeping up. My best friend and I both had really rough academic weeks, so by the time Thursday night rolled around we decided to celebrate all the hard work we had put in by treating ourselves to a fun night out before leaving for Thanksgiving Break.

We started our evening by going to dinner at Zumi Sushi, one of the restaurants on the Taste of Nashville program. This was one of the first places we went to dinner together freshman year, so it was nice to reminisce on the early days of our friendship. Our sushi was delicious, and we got a nice surprise when our server gave us an entire roll of sushi for free! Apparently she rang up one too many when putting in our order. Needless to say, we didn’t complain.

Here's a picture of Zumi!

After dinner we had planned to go to see the Blair Symphonic Choir concert, but dinner took less time than we expected so we headed over to Sweet Ceces, a frozen yogurt place that is also part of Taste of Nashville, and which is a favorite among Vandy students. That particular night they happened to be hosting a songwriter’s night so we got to listen to some live music played by some very talented local musicians while we enjoyed our fo-yo.

We got to listen to even more awesome music when we attended the Blair Symphonic Choir concert. This particular Blair choir is made up of a lot of voice majors, so they are all extremely talented, and to top it all off the concert was free! The concert was centered around honoring Robert Shaw and Alice Parker, and they did a variety of pieces ranging from traditional church hymns to work songs that were sung by sailors. They had someone “narrating” the concert and there had a slideshow of pictures playing which allowed us to learn a little bit of history while we listened to some wonderful music.

This past Thursday proved to be a great way for me to relax after a tough week. I’m glad that my best friend and I got the chance to enjoy a nice dinner and a concert, and this served as a great reminder for me of all the spectacular things Vanderbilt and Nashville have to offer.

Emily and I.
