Belcourt Taps celebrates the charms and flavors of the South with regular live music, and gourmet twists on comfort classics. The festivities begin before diners even step through the door. Outside, a sprawling patio surrounds the restaurant, lit up at night with warm sconce lighting and candlelight. There, guests can dig into gourmet stuffed burgers and tacos with pulled pork, shrimp, or chicken. Diners can also explore tapas and shareable plates of fried green tomatoes and nachos or dive solo into a barbecue pulled pork sandwich.
Inside, regular live music showcases the talents of singers and songwriters who carry on the Nashville sound. Golden yellow walls brighten the room, adding the feel of a southwestern cantina or a southwestern cantina owned by a pyromaniac, and soft overhead lighting creates the ideal atmosphere for a draft beer.
On October 7, 2000, the Predators opened the season with a two-game series against the Pittsburgh Penguins just outside Tokyo, Japan. The series drew the largest crowds ever to witness hockey in the nation's history. But just two years prior, Nashville was the new kid on the NHL block. One of the final pieces of a massive expansion effort during the 1990s, the Predators became the 27th franchise in NHL history when they skated to a 1–0 loss to the Carolina Hurricanes on October 10, 1998. Like many new organizations and racehorses with four left hooves, Nashville stumbled out of the gate, missing the playoffs in each of its first five seasons. That futility came to a sudden halt in 2003-04, when the Predators made their first of four straight postseason appearances.

Founded by Queens native and the Late Late Show vet Steve Hofstetter, Laughing Devil Comedy Club lobbed its inaugural laughs in late 2011. Its debut on the city's comedy scene came after weeks of anticipation and attention in the New York Post, the Queens Courier, and Queens Tribune. Within its intimate, 70-seat venue, bartenders draw from a top-shelf drink menu to forge potions such as The Andy Kaufman's blend of St. Germain, Patrón tequila, and pineapple. They also pour drafts of Chimay Triple, which is brewed in the traditional manner by Belgian prop comics.
Founded as the Union Gospel Tabernacle by steamboat captain Thomas Ryman after an angel got trapped in his smokestack, the Ryman Auditorium has since become a different kind of hallowed ground, lovingly referred to as the "mother church of country music." The Grand Ole Opry and The Johnny Cash Show have both taken residence among its wooden pews, and the twanged voices of country legends such as Hank Williams and Patsy Cline have reverberated off the stenciled artwork on the face of the balcony. Today, the venue plays host to a variety of acts, from rock concerts to television specials to comedy shows.
