Bakersfield in unexpected places

I did not expect to see a sign advertising the country music of Bakersfield while making a layover in the Nashville airport.

It was my first time stopping in that airport, and while I was expecting country music (there sure was a lot of it), one never expects to find references to Bakersfield or Fresno outside the valley, and yet, they’re strangely common. I’m sure I’m not the first to notice this.

Speaking of airports, I find that the food available inside tells you a lot about the city. Dallas, for example, has an enormous airport, but absolutely terrible food – basically just bad fast food. I’ve no interested in visiting that city. Meanwhile, in San Francisco, you’ll find an assortment of local restaurants – pricey, with small portions, but very tasty. IE, what you’ll find outside the airport. In Boston, you’ll naturally be overwhelmed by the number of Dunking Donuts locations and Legal Seafood outlets. Click to read more!
