    Nashville

    Possibly visiting the TN aquarium tomorrow (Saturday 8/26). Any recommendations for liquor stores to visit while in the area? Need to find a bottle for a friend's birthday and I'm considering WLW. Need to replenish my cabinet also so the bigger the assortment the better. Thanks for any assistance.

    Tom: Nashville has alot of terrific liquor stores. The Frugal Macdoogal which is just south of Downtown has an excellent selection of bourbons that we can't get here in Georgia. They usually have most if not all of the BT Antique Collection, ETL, BT among others. Go to their website www.frugalmacdoogal.com for directions. There are numerous smaller stores in and around the downtown area, but unfortunately I don't know their names or what street they're on. I just know how to get there! Happy hunting!

    The TN Aquarium is in Chattagooga, a two hour drive from Nashville.

    Close enough. The aquarium is a lame attempt to justify my bourbon search.

    Well, I won't say that Nashville is entirely picked over, because I keep finding stuff there myself. That said, I can promise you I've done a lot of 'picking over' in the Nashville area in the past 2-3 years. Conversely, I've never been in a Chattanooga liquor store, of which there seem to be several. I might, if I were you, concentrate there.

    Tom,
    I was in Chattanooga today and stopped in Riverside Wine and Spirits. Its just over the TN River, off US 27north; on the west side at the foot of the bridge. Decent selection of bourbons but not much you cant find in the Atlanta area. They did have several Pappy 20s, Weller Antiques, one Tribute at $85, several Bartons,Bernheim at $42 etc. Good selection of the Tn Whiskeys.

    There's an idea. I imagine there are a few stingrays at the vette museum. Would rather see a car than a slimy fish any day (even if it is wearing a bowtie).
