MARCHing toward Spring

Kind of a quiet (for us) month of March as we anxiously await spring to arrive.

 Editors note: unknowingly at the time, 
we also witnessed  the last game 
for the original Nashville predator i.e. the first draft pick 
of the franchise, David Legwand
who was traded to Detroit  the next day.
3/4/14 - We attended a Nashville Predators game tonight with our friends, Wayne and Wes vs. the Pittsburgh Penguins.   The big news was that our all-star goal-tender, Pekka Renne, was back on the ice for the first time this season after battling an infection that showed up after off-season surgery.  We lost this tough one at the end  by a margin of 3-1 after playing the Eastern Division leaders close for most of the game. Thanks to Wayne for the free tickets and food vouchers. 

3/6/14 - We attended another Preds game with Danny and Brenda vs. the St. Louis Blues. We had dinner at The Flying Saucer beforehand and walked from there to the game on a crisp, but clear evening in Music City.  Sadly, we lost 2-1 in another hard-fought game against the Western Division leaders this time. Could of used Legwand maybe?  We drowned our sorrows afterwards back at The Saucer.

3/8/14 - It was a very nice early spring day down in Chattanooga today and we went for a family visit and took a walk across the beautiful and historic Walnut Street Bridge.  We had a great dinner later that evening at Taco Mac.

March 9 - We started our Sunday with a delicious brunch at Chato Brasserie.  This is their " Big Island" special of ground beef and  fried rice covered in Shitaki mushroom sauce with a scrambled (per my call) egg on top.  Yummo!

 The beautiful weekend drew to a close as we headed back home from Chattanooga with a peaceful drive up good ol' Highway 111, a road we have traveled many, many times over the years.

March 16 - Another lazy weekend started with "Ashlee's Famous Bonnaroo Breakfast" of apple pancakes served up at home. The good eats continued later in the day as well with dinner at Pomodoro East (Nashville) with our friend, Wayne, and, Ashlee's sister, Paige, who was in town for business the next day.   Dessert at Jeni's Ice Cream is, of course, a must when in "East Nasty."
