Paint Nite

To us, painting and drinking go together like peas and carrots. So count us in to unleash our inner Van Gogh at this two-hour art class, where local artist Sara Beigle will teach us how to paint the starry Nashville skyline.

Nashville Flea Market: WinterFest

The Nashville Expo Center, 625 Smith Ave.

Held during the final weekend of each month, the Nashville Flea Market is like a weirder, homegrown Walmart that sells Amish furniture and antique radios instead of groceries and iPod accessories. Admission is free and parking is cheap. Pro-tip:bring walking shoes!
