Monkeys are aware of the chatter surrounding this away trip. We have already started the process of reaching out to Nashville. Lets just say they are new and its gonna take some time to get the necessary information and things set up. But don't worry we will get there.

Update on 3/20/20- An email from travel@weareecs.com was sent to all ticket purchasers on 3/20/20 at 1:12pm Pacific requesting a reply by 3/21 at 5:00 pm Pacific. If for some reason you did not receive that email please reach out to us at the travel email.

Anyone else planning on seeing Pearl Jam at Bridgestone Arena the day before the Sounders match? What a fun Seattle two days in Nashville!

So excited for this trip. Heading in Wednesday and probably going to the Pred's game that night. See a bunch of you in Nashville (and monkeys, keep up the awesome work)!

We are going to Nashville for this game; what section(s) are Sounders fans sitting in?

Fellow Supporters, this is going to be our kind of town! I've booked flights ($350 r/t on Alaska) and hotel (AC Hotel by Marriott Nashville Downtown) so far and put together a draft itinerary of what I'm interested in doing. I've never been to Nashville so I'm open to hearing what else is fun to do in town. Any recommendations on where to find the best Nashville hot chicken?

:beer:

Tuesday 3/31:
-Flight: Alaska 1470 | SEA > BNA | 5:35pm PT > 11:59pm CT

-Uber to Hotel (~8mi, ~15 min)

-Lodging: AC Hotel by Marriott Nashville Downtown

Wednesday 4/1:
-8am: Breakfast

-9-11am: Country Music Hall of Fame (3 min walk from hotel) - Open daily 9am-5pm
:rockband:

-11am-1pm: View Cherry Blossoms (festival on Saturday only) (Public Square - 3rd Ave N and Union St, ~1 mile from hotel)
:shock:

-1pm: Lunch in the area

-1-3pm: Musician's Hall of Fame (401 Gay St, near Public Square) - Open Mon-Sat 10am-5pm
:rockband:

-3-6pm-Ole Smoky Distillery/Yee-Haw Brewery (3 min walk from hotel) - Open 11am-11pm
6th and Peabody features a distillery, brewery, bars, tasting areas, beer & bottle shops, merchandise, big screen TVs, and live entertainment. Visitors can enjoy moonshine, cocktails, and beer by the glass, as well as purchase jars of moonshine and bottled beer for enjoyment at home. HUGE TACO MENU!
:tequila:

-7pm: Bridgestone Arena: Montreal Canadiens @ Nashville Predators (5min walk from hotel)

-After hockey: Tootsie's Orchid Lounge
Tootsie's Orchid Lounge: With four stages and three bars spread across three floors, this orchid-colored honky tonk – a paint job mess up is how the bar got its name – is possibly the most well known on Broadway.[48] The bar has been the subject of various articles, TV programs, and even songs over the years. Past performers include Patsy Cline, Willie Nelson, Johnny Cash, Tom T. Hall, Kris Kristofferson, and many others. Tootsie's "Wall of Fame" includes hundreds of photos and other memorabilia.
:disco:

-Lodging: AC Hotel by Marriott Nashville Downtown

Thursday 4/2:
-8am: Breakfast

-9am: Hop on/Hop off bus tour around Nashville

-12pm: Bar hop around Broadway, walk waterfront area
:pint:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Broadway_(Nashville,_Tennessee)

-Dinner: Open-ended (find some hot chicken!)

-Lodging: AC Hotel by Marriott Nashville Downtown

Friday 4/3:
-8am: Breakfast

-Tennessee Whiskey Experience (picks up across the street from hotel):
Departure: 11:00 AM

Downtown Nashville at the Omni Hotel located at 250 5th Ave South. You can’t miss our bus.

Return: 5:00 PM

The destinations on our Tennessee Whiskey Experience are, well, secret just like many of the bootlegging operations dotting the rolling hills of rural Tennessee during our overly oppressive prohibition. It lasted about 15 years longer than federal prohibition.

Our tour visits and tastes at three distilleries. We rotate distilleries, but we’ll make sure you know where you’re going before you sign up for a tour.

-~4pm: Sounders pre-funk time/location?

-~6pm: Close tabs and March to stadium

-8pm: Sounders @ Nashville SC
:drinknsing: :drinknsing: :drinknsing:

-~10:30pm: After Sounders: Find Live Music on Broadway

-Lodging: AC Hotel by Marriott Nashville Downtown

Saturday 4/4:
-Uber to Airport (~7mi, 10 min)
:surrender:

-Flight: Alaska 1415 | BNA > SEA | 6am CT > 9:10am PT

Definitely follow @ECSTravelMonkey on Twitter to get the lowdown on the ground. Hattie B's is hot chicken you must have. Also, if you've never been, definitely check out Broadway, but also look into some of the dive bars (Red Door, for example). A lot of session musicians will play all night at some of the local dives well off Broadway and it's a good time. Low-down blues and country, cheap heavy pours and, sometimes, is a person who's played on EVERYBODY'S album.

We got a room at the Courtyard because the AC Marriott and the Hilton are already sold out. We are driving in from Knoxville that afternoon, though, and don't figure we are going to spend that much time in the hotel room (other than to sleep) anyway. Looking forward to hearing where we will meet up pre-game. I would suggest something relatively close to the pedestrian bridge across to Nissan Stadium.

Just confirmed hotel & ticket the last 12 hrs. Airport Radisson which is also 15 mins, 8mi away from stadium.

As an FYI as an HH member, I’ll have poles, some flags, and a megaphone if it’ll be permitted. 8-) :beer:

Anyone know the process for attempting to get refunds for tickets purchased through ECS? Being active duty military and possibly PCSing later this summer means I am probably not going to be able to attend the rescheduled Nashville match if/whenever that may occur.
