How To: Plan A Group Outing

I’m not sure where the disintegration of planning began. Perhaps it was the creation of the group chat via iMessage? Or earlier in AIM Chat rooms? Or maybe as prehistoric as the “Three-Way Call”? Wherever it started, it has lasted. You love your friends and all you want to do is live the American Dream of getting to hang out with all of them at the same time. But how are you supposed to do that when some people prefer night events and some people prefer day events and some people are gluten free and some people are just the worst? River Queen Voyages Kayaking Team is here to help you ease the stress of getting your crew together. Whether it’s for a Bachelorette Party, Birthday Party, or you’re all FINALLY off on the same day! Here are the best Group Outings in Nashville, TN.

Monell’s - Friends are the family that you got to choose! What better way to celebrate that family, than with the most famous Family-Style dinner in Nashville. The tables can seat up to 20 people, and it’s all you can eat if classic Southern dishes such as fried chicken, mashed potatoes, mac and cheese & cole slaw. What I love about this meal is that not only is the food Souther, but so is the attitude. There is no rush at Monell’s and you and your friend can talk over massive plates of food for as long as you’d like.

Nashville Pedal Tavern - The best part about a night out is the pregame, and Nashville Pedal Tavern is the best way to pregame for multiple reasons:

1. You will not hit the point of the pregame where you end up just staying at home.

2. Not only is the music entertaining, but so are the drivers.

3. It is the only time you will ever enjoy traffic because you get to drink and enjoy the beautiful view of Downtown Broadway for just a bit longer.

You drink, you pedal, you dance AND you can fit up to 16 of your friends on one bike!

River Queen Voyages - The Original Nashville Kayak Experience! Enjoy the views, the weather, and your friends along the Cumberland River. Kayaking is a great way to spend time with your friends without the risk of losing them at a bar, or not being able to hear them over the Honky Tonk music. You can enjoy the scenic downtown, or the nature of East Nashville. If you come on the right weekend, you can also hang out with us after your trip and enjoy local Nashville food, drink & music!

Whether your kayaking, pedaling, or just eating, time with your friends is crucial. Here are just a few ways you can create awesome memories with your favorite people in Nashville. For more ideas, you can visit Nashville Guru.

4 Reasons We're Already Loving 2019 (Even Though We Can't Kayak in Nashville Right Now)

We might still be accidentally writing “2018” on everything, but we are, in fact, a few weeks into 2019…and we must say, we’re already digging it. Though we miss being out kayaking on the good ol’ Cumberland River, and soaking in the Nashville sun, the off-season has been good to us!
