OK, let's just say it up front: The irony of putting out a swimsuit issue just weeks after a catastrophic flood isn't lost on us. On the other hand, it says a lot about the way Nashville has risen to the occasion. Hit us with a wall of water, and we don't whine, we don't wail, we don't loot each other's houses. What do we do? We swim — and we start getting our neighbors to shore. Two things that go great together.
Hey — now there's an idea! In our annual Summer Guide, we show how to multiply your summer fun by taking one cool, unique local activity — be it softball, a drive-in movie, or something we've had a lot of practice with lately, canoeing — and pairing it with another summer delight, from watching the sun rise over Love Circle to downing a malt at Bobbie's Dairy Dip. And what goes well with that? Photos of some of Music City's beautiful people, enjoying that welcome sun.
