Each week I share three things I like – It could be a book, a movie, a podcast, an album, a photo, an article, a restaurant, a food item, a beverage, or anything else I simply enjoy and think you might too. You can find a whole pile of things, especially books, I like and recommend HERE.
“Nashville Hot Chicken” is a term so ubiquitous even Kentucky Fried Chicken has usurped it. (FYI: Nashville is not in Kentucky. I know some of you Yankees were unclear on that. Also, KFC is gross.). Prince’s is the original Nashville Hot, and in this case original also means best. Other restaurants do it well, but Prince’s does it best. To be clear the “hot” in Prince’s chicken is en fuego. The original recipe was developed as revenge for Mr. Prince’s misadventures after all. Any how, visit Prince’s when you visit Nashville. The level of hot your order should be inversely related to how far north you reside.
2. Sling TV
As I write this I am watching a basketball game on ESPN. I am not an ESPN subscriber. I have the trash cable package that was bundled with my internet which means I get all C-Spans and an array of stations endlessly hawking jewelry and Sham Wows. What I do have is Sling, a streaming service that allows me to get all the major cable stations I want at a really reasonable price. It is as simple as it sounds – select the cable package you want and subscribe. Then stream away. It works great with the Amazon Fire Stick, on a computer, or on mobile devices.
3. Night Train by Oscar Peterson
My favorite jazz album of all time. Every single track is fantastic. Peterson is a genius. Go get it. The end.
