Pink Saturday ~ Tex-Mex meets Music City

Pink Saturday is hosted by Beverly at How Sweet the Sound. Check out her blog to see who all else is playing along with this week's party.

DD#2 is a rising senior so we are going on college visits this summer. This week we went to tour Vanderbilt in Nashville. We arrived Thursday evening and went to eat at a Tex-Mex restaurant called Chuy's in the Cool Springs area. We've been there a couple of other times for lunch and ate out on the patio. This time we were seated inside in what can only be called the Elvis Room. The entire room is painted pink with pictures and sculptures of Elvis everywhere. There is even an Elvis shrine - true cultural diversity, hence the Tex-Mex meets Music City.

Yes, this was my view during dinner. I am still not quite sure what to think of it. And if that weren't over the top enough, we were seated beneath an upside down pink Cadillac.

Don't let the decor of this room scare you off. They make great Cheese Chile Rellenos and their flour tortilllas are TDF.

I've been looking at other Pink Saturday posts and was delighted to see this one on aprons by Barb at DogMom Diva. I just love aprons and wear them all the time when cooking.

It's hard to believe your "baby" will soon be heading off to college. It's a good thing you still have that wonderful senior year to look forward to. Becky, this post was perfect for Pink Saturday. I suspect it will be the most original of the day. Have a weelend. Blessings...Mary

Happy Pink Saturday to you!

Becky......I can't believe how fast time flies by. I remember her starting high school. Mine is in her 4th year of College and lives at home b/c the University is in the city. Bu she's already looking around to continue elsewhere, so we to soon will be looking around and visiting.
Love the restaurant, I love places like that with interesting decor.
thanks for sharing.......:-)
