Miss A Columnist

Texas native, Adriana Salinas, is a Senior at Vanderbilt University and a double-major in English - Creative Writing and Studio Art. On campus, her involvements include being a member of Alpha Delta Pi sorority, a tour guide through the AmbassaDores program, and designing layouts for The Vanderbilt Hustler, the campus newspaper. After Vanderbilt, Adriana plans to return to Houston and teach in underprivileged communities while continuing to build her portfolio and pursue a graduate degree program in either advertising, marketing or journalism.

The spicy Latina has enjoyed her three years in Nashville and plans to spend many more nights exploring the city for delicious cuisine and trendy restaurants and bars (in between studying for exams of course). Don’t be fooled by her obsession with the color pink, this girly-girl is a hipster at heart that loves all things related to art, museums, outdoors, music, and beer. Adriana has kept journals for most of her life and her favorite place to write is at local coffee shops. To prove her world revolves around writing and art, the only games Adriana plays on her iPhone are "Words with Friends" and "Draw Something."

Full Moon Pickin’ Parties In Nashville To Benefit Warner Parks

If you’re gonna play in Tennessee, you gotta have a fiddle in the band. At least that’s what the Friends of Warner Park suggest for their 11th season of Full Moon Pickin’ Parties. Pickers form circles under the trees and around the grounds performing and jamming while several headliners are featured on stage.

These fundraisers attract families and friends of all ages (dog lovers too) to either play or enjoy bluegrass tunes under the full moon light. All funds raised by Full Moon Pickin’ Parties go directly towards protecting the Warner Parks as well as funding educational programs and special projects that benefit park-goers of all ages. A variety of food is available for purchase and beverages are included in your ticket.

There are only two full moons left in the season. Musicians grab your banjos, music listeners grab your blankets. Take a night off from the Nashville city lights and come enjoy Middle Tennessee’s finest blue grass music under the light of a full moon.
