I'm a work at home Dad, but since a lot of my job can be done in the evening I find myself out with my daughter in a lot of similar situations. We're not in a play group, but I do take her to a music class every Friday morning with a bunch of other kids and it's almost exclusively moms (a dad will pop in now and then, and there's now one grandfather who comes regularly). I definitely had some hesitation the first few times - I'd have to sing, dance and act silly around all of these women? - but I think the common bond of being parents supersedes all of that weirdness I worried about at first.

The Hotel Preston outside of Nashville also caters to pets. You pay a decent one-time fee ($50 maybe) but it covers them for life, so you can return fee-free next time. They also give your pooch a free bag of treats. The hotel also has lots of unique and fun design elements as well as quirky service options (like just about any religious book you want in your drawer) that make it fun to stay at. Only bummer is that it's out by Nashville's airport, so it's about a 15 minute drive to the heart of the city.
