Virtual Reality is changing the world and Nashville is in its path! A new VR Gamers Cafe called PLATFORMS has opened its doors in downtown Nashville on Second Avenue South near the popular bar and grill  Third and Lindsley. We were invited to attend a VR Meetup on Thursday night hosted by The Wond'ry, an epicenter for Innovation and Entrepreneurship at Vanderbilt University. We must say, we enjoyed learning all about this crazed way of gaming and near-reality experience! If you are too shaky to try those once in a lifetime bucket list experiences, then VR just might be your option. Here's why we say this is a place you must get to know!

Do You Really Know the BEST Nashville Barbeque?

Nashville is home to many great barbeque joints like the very well-known restaurant chains of Jim & Nick's BBQHog HeavenMission BBQ and many more. We know them all too well and so does the rest of the world! But how many of us have heard of or been blessed to try our local small barbeque joints that were created here and are drenched with the local flavor of real Nashville Barbeque? The ones that decorate their walls with Nashville history and tell stories of our great city? The kind of places that should roll off our tongues when every tourist asks a local "Where's the best place to get Nashville Barbeque?"

True Color Brings More Color to Nashville!

Imagine after a long week at the office, shuffling meetings and assignments, evenings picking up the kids and driving them to their afterschool activities, making it home in time to cook a quick dinner, check homework, say goodnight, and grab what seems to be a quick six-hour night’s rest, your day of pampering has finally come! You have been waiting for this appointment and very excited for the experience! This is a beautician that you heard about from a neighbor and happened to checkout on Nashville’s local guide app Nodat and you fell in love with what you saw from the video reviews.



You walk into the Loft Salon and politely let them know that you are there to visit True Color. Candy the stylist greets you at the front and  takes you into a well decorated shampoo area surrounded by other stylist and their clients. Everyone is so friendly and welcoming. The colors on the wall are very calming and eclectic and as you relax and settle into your seat at the shampoo bowl Candy introduces herself to you and tells you  that for the next hour and a half she will be your Hairapist.
