31 Days of Nashville – Cori’s DogHouse

15 - Cori's DogHouse

If there is a combination of ingredients to be topped on a hot dog, then Cori’s probably has it. I first discovered Cori’s at their first location in Mount Juliet back when David and I were still dating, and I live in Mount Juliet. Cori’s was our go-to restaurant when he came to my side of town. Shortly after we moved in together (in Nashville), they opened a second location on West End, so I kinda feel like Cori’s knew I would miss them being close to home. 

Most of their menu dogs are named after states, cities or areas in the US. You can basically eat your way across the country, and if you do eat one of each (and get your card marked), you can be added to the Wall of Wieners at either location. Seriously! David and I have been slowly working or way across the US since 2009, and I think we’re each about half way there. We have a rule between the two of us that we can’t get our card marked unless we’re dining together so that we can both be wieners on the same day.

Without a doubt, my absolute favorite dog is the Jersey Breakfast dog that comes with bacon, shredded cheese and a fried egg. I get weird looks sometimes when I mention it, but it really is good if you like bacon and eggs. I also prefer the turkey dog over the beef dog, but that’s just a personal preference, and there’s nothing wrong with the other choices. You don’t have to order exactly what is offered on the board (unless you’re trying to get your photo added to the Wall of Wienders), so they will add any topping they offer if you order it that way. They also have sausages and other sandwiches, too.

If you’re feeling brave, try the Fried Twinkie for dessert. I’m usually full by the time I’ve eaten my hot dog, but I’ve had a bite or two of the dessert. It’s well worth it if you still have room for more.

This post is part of a series I am writing, 31 Days of Nashville, where I am introducing several awesome places that make Nashville a great place to live and visit. Each day of the week has a different theme, and I am trying to focus on those hidden gems that aren’t as well known but just as worthy.

Locked In

If you had to get locked in some place (book store, amusement park, etc.) overnight alone, where would you choose to be locked in?

Most people who know me  know my love for bacon. Friends will randomly share bacon posts with me on Facebook, message me links or email photos and recipes. I even have a Pinterest Board dedicated just for Bacon that’s my most popular board among friends and random followers.

So if I had to be locked in a place overnight alone, it would have to be in the bacon store.

Just kidding! I’d make myself sick before the night was over.

In all seriousness, I’d have to say that I would much rather be locked in the Canyon Ranch Spa at the Venetian Hotel in Las Vegas. For the past several years, my husband has attended the Microsoft Management Summit in Las Vegas, and the past four years I have gone with him (to Las Vegas, not the conference!). Last year I spent a day in the spa at the Venetian, and it topped my list as the most relaxing place I have ever visited. I’ve had facials and massages in the past, and I took part in those services last year, as well, but the real treat for me was their Aquavana spa that offers several different types of spa experiences, like a sauna, a steam room, an herbal room, a rain shower, a wave room and several others. For the full treatment, they recommend experiencing at least a few minutes of each one. It was simply amazing!

I’m NOT being paid, comped or receiving discounts from them for writing this (but if Canyon Ranch contacted me with a free day or discounts, I would deny them!). I’m really just answering the question that if I could get locked in one place overnight, it would definitely be in the Aquavana spa or at least something like it. When they found me the next morning, they would have to scoop me up and wheel me out of there, because I would be a puddle of relaxation after a night spent in the spa.

I’m already planning my spa day for next year’s Las Vegas trip if David goes to the conference again!

Would you rather be locked in the Bacon Store or the Spa? Have you ever had a spa day? Where would you like to get locked in overnight?

During the month of November, I am participating in the National Blog Posting Month, also known as NaBloPoMo, hosted by BlogHer. Most likely I am following these suggested prompts, but I might just get crazy and change things up every once in a while. I’m one wild and crazy gal!
