I work hard. I have to. I have two kids to raise.

First Showings begin at Public Open House On May 4, from 11-1

A good real estate agent works every day. We learn how to manage everything without letting anyone feel unimportant. We get really good at returning our phone calls. And we do things right the first time — we don’t have enough time to go back and redo and redo and redo. We are detail oriented because that is the most time-efficient way to be. We can get more things done in a day, and we know that things are being done correctly as we do them. Let’s go — the market is waiting and my car is ready! I have crayons for the kids and Junior Mints for us! Let’s hit the road and find that new house — this is going to be fun!

THREE TERRACES, THE ORIGINAL STOKES FAMILY HOME

I brushed against the 1932 Boxwoods as I walked over the tumbled brick to the original solid french doors of The Three Terraces. My mind drifted to what would once have been lavishly decadent cocktail parties as they spilled out of the French doors onto the tiered terraces and pool shaded by giant hardwood trees and sunny winds. I saw Mrs. Stokes gliding down the staircase to greet her guests that sipped toddys in bamboo chairs

and took off their shoes to walk on the cool grass. The screened doors squeaked then, and they squeak now- letting you know someone is there - waking you up out of your dreams and into the reality that this home has all of its original molding, its plaster walls, its plaster ceilings, and its hardwood floors, its fireplaces, its quirks, but most importantly, its fixtures that cannot be replaced. Sometimes, a powder room is truly a work of art. Come be seen.

Green Hills Lifestyle | June 2018


ARTICLE JEREMY DORN PHOTOGRAPHY HANY RAMZY EVERYBODY NEEDS A PLACE TO GET AWAY. For some, it’s the hair salon, or the park, or the man cave, or the she shed. For plenty of men, it’s a local sports bar or restaurant where they feel at home and can meet their buddies for a pint and a game. In the Green Hills area, one of those spots is Crows Nest. With trivia nights on Tuesday nights, plenty of sports on TV, a happy hour and Southern comfort food, Crows Nest is an ideal place for the boys to spend a few hours. Crows Nest is located at 2221 Bandywood Drive, Nashville, TN 37215. For more information, visit CrowsNestNashville.com. CONTINUED >

HOT SPOT

(CON TI N U ED)

HANG According to Nicholas Gajewski, the district team leader at Crows Nest, they offer a different drink feature every night (two for one on Tuesday nights are popular). The restaurant fits right into the Green Hills community too as its close to the mall and is a perfect place for men to gather and hang out—and, perhaps, avoid shopping. “We have plenty of guys' nights here,” Nicholas says. “They always seem to have a good time!” With 39 TVs and three patios, guys won't need to go anywhere else.

DRINK While some spots limit their happy hour to an hour or two, Crows Nest goes above and beyond. Happy hour is held all day long—from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m.—on Monday and for five hours—2 p.m. to 7 p.m.—on Tuesday-Friday. Happy hour specials include $4 well drinks and house wine, $2.75 domestics, and $2 off all wines, premiums, cocktails and crafts. In addition to the standard fare such as Budweiser and PBR, Crows Nest offers local brews

RESTAURANT ROUND UP

from breweries such as Blackstone and Yazoo.

EAT If looking for more than a place to grab a drink and hang, Crows Nest's menu is well-suited for guys too. Check out The Nest Manburger, a grilled barbecue beef patty with sliced ham, fried egg, bacon, jalapenos, tobacco onions, Thousand Island dressing, and cheddar, pepper jack and Swiss cheeses. Another option is the Daily Meat & 2 or 3. Choose a meat, including pulled pork, barbecue chicken and catfish; two or three side options ranging from baked beans and mashed potatoes to fried okra and green beans; and a roll or cornbread.

PEPPER BOXING "TREADMILLS ARE FOR HAMSTERS," ALEXANDER "PEPPER" KAUFMAN WRITES AT THE END OF HIS EMAIL. Whether this is a quip or a legitimate slogan, you don't want to question the founder and owner of Pepper Boxing. Alexander has been privately training clients for almost 10 years, worked his way to the top of the New York City fitness chain, and started boxing as a 16-year-old in England. If his resume—including a background in high-level competitive powerlifting—doesn't scare you, Alexander's C.M. Burst workout will. It's as tough as he is strong, and it will wreck you.

When he was 13, he tore his ACL and picked up a bike to ride for physical therapy after the injury. Later, he joined the industry, developed an interest in the technical side, and eventually opened Halcyon in Nashville. Andrew and his staff have gone all-in, sponsoring cycling clubs, leading group rides, hosting repair clinics and providing trail recommendations on top of their regular duties. “We love our city and are committed to doing anything we can to make it a more cycling-friendly community,� Andrew says.

Doug Hogrefe, a partner at 4-Top Hospitality Group, climbed from server at Amerigo in Jackson, Mississippi, to general manager to owner of the restaurant. From there, he has helped grow the 4-Top Hospitality Group into a major player in the Nashville culinary scene. And he’s done it the right way; 4-Top’s restaurants involve themselves in the community with staff-chosen charity work. “A large number of people have put their faith in us that we will not only protect their jobs but also continually provide opportunity for growth,” Doug says.

ARTICLE SHONTÉ PRESS 1. EAT HEALTHY & REGULARLY: Time management is extremely

important to any successful entrepreneur, so you have to pre-plan if you want to eat healthy and regularly. Prep meals for the week on Sunday, make green smoothies for breakfast on the go, ALWAYS pack healthy snacks and don’t forget your daily vitamin! 2. GET YOUR SLEEP: Sleep is vitally important to your overall

health. During sleep, your body is healing and rejuvenating. Without 6-8 hours of sleep, your brain and body will not function as well. Have a productive day, shut out the noise at night and go to sleep on time! 3. SCHEDULE EXERCISE TIME: Your body needs exercise more than

you know. The best way to make this happen is to schedule at least 30 minutes of exercise 3-4 mornings a week. It’s a great way to start your day and you won’t have to stress about doing it later. So get up and move! 4. ELIMINATE BAD FOODS: You know that sweets and processed

or fried foods are bad for you, but have you drastically reduced them from your diet? Do your body a favor and replace these foods with healthier alternatives today! 5. DRINK YOUR WATER:  Did you know that your body is almost

70% water? If you don’t replenish your water reserves, your body will begin to take water from your bones and organs, which can lead to health problems later in life. So drink up! 6. GO TO ANNUAL CHECK-UPS: This may seem like a no brainer,

but when was your last physical? Getting a yearly exam can pay off exponentially. You’ll know what’s going on with your body, and early detection of any medical issue could save your life! 7. SCHEDULE ME TIME: If you don’t, who will? Make sure to always

factor in me time. Whether a few minutes of meditation, a spa day or vacation, get your me time in! 8. ALWAYS BE INTENTIONAL: The most important thing to remember

is to BE INTENTIONAL! If you don’t make a plan, you’re planning to fail. You schedule your business day, so why not schedule your meals, water breaks and sleep time? Doing so will help you live to adult another day!
