Tickets: I’ve listed a few of my favorite venues: Opry; Ascend; the Ryman, and Brooklyn Bowl, as well as winter sports faves, the Preds and Titans. Tickets to any upcoming show or event (my mom might be getting TPAC tickets!), though, are always thoughtful and appreciated. I’ve not seen announcements about ticket deals yet, but they usually come…so watch their socials, and if I see them, I’ll share in my stories, too!
Happy holidays, y’all! And don’t forget to see part 1 posted yesterday – and to follow thetipjarnash on Instagram for more Nashville tips!
