The time is finally here….Hockey season has finally arrived and I could not be more excited! The lights. The noise. The cheers and chants. The sound of Tim McGraw singing, “I like it, I love it…” and the overall excitement that the atmosphere that hockey night in Smashville brings. And why yes, I do like it, love it and want some more of it.

The obvious place to be when the team is home is Bridgestone Arena. You just can’t duplicate the feel, the excitement and the roar of the crowds. The taunting cheers coming from the Cellblock (303), high five-ing Gnash, and trying to catch a t-shirt from the energy team. However, if you are unable to snag a ticket to the game or if the team is away, you can still get out and enjoy a great night with fellow sports fans, great food and a fun atmosphere. So where should one go to catch a game with such great options? Double Dogs, that’s where.

Double Dogs is one of my favorite restaurants to go to in general, but in my opinion they have one of the best atmosphere’s for sports fans. Walls of tv’s, great food, two great Nashville locations, friendly staff and with their walls of tv’s you can catch not just the Predators’ games you can catch other sporting events going on as well. This makes it great for a large group to go and everyone is still able to see their team play. Football or hockey. Soccer or Basketball. It’s playing at Double Dogs.

Now that your game is on and your settled in to your table, deciding what to order is your next task. With numerous beer selections on tap you shouldn’t have any issues finding your beverage of choice or finding your new favorite brew and definitely start with one of their great apps, I strongly recommend the spicy cheese toast.

On to the main course, you shouldn’t have any trouble finding anything. From Salads, to sandwiches, pizza to buffalo mac n’ cheese. There are options for everyone! I am one of the pickiest eater’s you will probably meet and I am always able to find something. My favorite options are the Southern Fried Chicken Salad, Bacon, Egg & Cheese Sandwich, or the Breakfast Dog (hold the onions). And as for the side? Fries. Always get their fries.

Don’t forget to save some room for dessert as well, their Moosetracks Milkshake is DELICIOUS! And worth every calorie.

You can view their full menu here.

In Nashville you will be able to find Double Dogs at two great locations: Hillsboro Village and Sylvan Heights. Sylvan heights has free parking, which is usually easy to find. Hillsboro Village has a paid garage located directly behind the building. And for you reward point lovers, they have a rewards system too!

One of the cool side note’s about Double Dogs? You can bring your furry friends with you! There is an outdoor patio available for you and your pup to enjoy a night out with friends, food and fun.

So next time there’s a game on and you want to get out and enjoy it? Choose Double Dogs.

And don’t forget to order the spicy cheese toast. You’ll thank me later.

Go Preds!
