Nashville bucket list

To accompany my list of the 70 best restaurants in Nashville where I want to eat by the end of next year, I've created my Nashville bucket list: 27 things I want to do before I get my Master's degree.

1. Visit the Country Music Hall of Fame

2. Shop at the farmer's market

3. Go to the Las Paletas store and have a popsicle

4. See a show at Bluebird Cafe

5. Try the food truck Rollin' and Smokin'

6. See a show at Exit/In

7. Eat Jeni's Ice Cream

8. Have a picnic in Centennial Park

9. Walk the pedestrian bridge and take touristy pictures of the Nashville skyline

10. Watch the sunset at Love Hill

11. Have a milkshake at Elliston Place Soda Shop

12. Go to a Predators game

13. Go to a Titans game

14. See a movie at the Belcourt Theater

15. Tour the Belle Meade plantation

16. Go on a Nash Trash tour

17. Tour the Hermitage

18. Walk around downtown Franklin

19. Visit the Frist Museum

20. Enjoy Thirsty Thursday at a Sounds game

21. Raft the Ocoee

22. Tour the Yazoo Brewery

26. Drink a Chago-Rona at Chago's Cantina

27. Sing karaokee on Printer's Alley (again)

Am I missing anything?  Maybe these will actually be more attainable than my 25 by 25.
