For the first time in roughly seven months, the National Football League will grace our television sets this weekend for yet another season. And while the Tennessee Titans won’t be playing at LP Field this weekend, it’s time to start thinking about the best things to do on a Titans game day. Luckily, we here at TN Media have provided a list of things to do when the Titans are in Nashville.
1) Enjoy a cup of coffee at CREMA
What better way to start your Titans’ game day than with a cup of coffee? Perhaps you cheered just a little too hard or drank a little too much rooting on your favorite college team the night before and need a little pick-me-up. CREMA coffee is the perfect place for you.
Crema ethically sources coffees “by building meaningful and equitable relationships with farmers, mills and close partners.” With “deep respect” for farmers and land, they “seek coffees with notable flavor, balance and sweetness.”
Located at 15 Hermitage Ave in the heart of downtown Nashville, TN, this coffee shop is near LP Field with a short walk over the Cumberland River separating the two. Crema opens its doors at 9:00 a.m. each Sunday morning, so swing by and see what all the fuss is about.
To learn more about Crema, visit crema-coffee.com.
2) Find a rooftop bar on Broadway
What better way is there to soak up the atmosphere surrounding a Titans game than watching the crowds roll in and socializing from your favorite rooftop bar? There are several options for you to consider when venturing towards Broadway. Tootsies is a popular spot amongst locals and tourists alike, located just behind the Ryman Auditorium and diagonally across from Bridgestone Arena. Also, Rock Bottom and the newly-opened Acme Feed and Seed are worth the visit if you desire an overlook of downtown Nashville. Both are located on the 100 block of Broadway and are a short walk across the river to LP Field.
3) Find the perfect spot to tailgate
It’s not officially game day until you take out the grill, throw down some bratwurst and enjoy a good game of cornhole. Be sure to enjoy some quality time with family and friends before the game starts, but also make sure that you abide by stadium policies.
According to the stadium policy, due to limited parking space around LP Field, “tailgating is permitted only directly behind a patron’s vehicle and is subject to LP Field rules.”
4) Grab your favorite Titans’ gear at the Titans Locker Room
Attending a Titans game without the appropriate team apparel would be like showing up to work in sweat pants. Located inside LP Field, the Titans Locker Room has you covered. Whether you are looking for a Jake Locker jersey or items to decorate your office with, you can find it. They even have a Titans putting mat for the avid golfers who love to practice their birdie stroke between meetings at work.
Allow yourself plenty of time to browse the store prior to kickoff, as you certainly won’t be the only person in line. If the line is too long for your liking, shop online at titanslockerroom.com.
5) Go to the game!
What’s the number one thing to do on a Titans game day? That’s easy.
