We are a group of Middle Tennessee dads who get together every week for playgroup at an area playground -- currently Wednesdays at 10:30 am. We often meet in Nashville due to its central location, however we also visit places like Bellevue, Mt. Juliet, Franklin, Donelson, Murfreesboro, and Spring Hill depending on current members.

It's usually easy to spot us on the playground - there aren't often too many groups of men there. In the meantime, if you have any questions, please drop us a line at Nashdads@gmail.com. You can also sign up for our GroupMe text alerts below.

December 30: Above All Extreme Air Sports

I'm under the weather and so are my kids, but Russ is out of retirement to host a playgroup for the bigger folks. Above all is a trampoline haven for jump and other extreme air activities. Check out their website for all details - jump time is $13 for the hour, which might seem steep until you look at all the crazy stuff they have in this place! Bare feet or gripper socks required - waiver must be signed before hand or on site. Happy New Year!

December 22: No Playgroup

I've been watching the weather and there is a good chance that we could be in a tornado watch as early as noon tomorrow, higher chances in the evening.  That said, I'm going to be scrambling to take care of some last minute holiday stuff before the bad weather rolls in to town.

I can't host next week, so we'll take a short hiatus.  If someone is doing something fun, post about it in the Group Me.  Otherwise, let's take a break and reconvene in 2016!

Happy NashDads New Year to all!

December 15: Tuba Christmas

It's time for a Nashdads Annual Christmas Tradition -- Tuba Christmas!  For the uninitiated, we are talking dozens upon dozens of tubas paying a smattering of well loved holiday carols.  It is as crazy and fun as it sounds.  The show is at 11 am at the First Baptist Church downtown (next to Bridgestone arena).  Parking is free in the lot behind the church for this event.  Attendance is usually pretty high, even for a Tuesday morning, so you'll want to get there a little bit early.  Hope to see you there!

When: Tuesday, December 15th at 11:00 a.m.

Where: First Baptist Church, 108 7th Ave S, Nashville, TN 37203

December 9: Crockett Park

Looks to be in high 50s today, so let's try to squeeze in another day outside.  We haven't been to Crockett Park in Brentwood for a while.  On a personal note, I am iffy on attendance today, but if you need to make last minute adjustments or are looking for people - use the GroupMe group.

Just a heads up - playgroup will be moving to Tuesday next week for a Nashdad's tradition - Tuba Christmas.  More info to come!

Where:  Crockett Park, 1500 Volunteer Pkwy, Brentwood, TN 37027

December 2: Green Hills Park

Sorry for the late post, but I've been waffling all day.  Looks like weather will be north of 50 degrees so we'll head outside (mid 40s in low wind is my floor).  We haven't ever been to this park so let's check it out on a day that might be short - that way if its a bust, we'll blame the chilly weather and not feel bad about calling it.  In addition to the cool climbing tower, there's a pretty big rock wall and some other playground stuff.  Hope you can make it out.
