I think that the wife and I will be taking a motorcycle trip to Nashville for the 4th of July. What are the rules about Resturantes and anything else I might need to know.

There are basically 5 places that are off limits by TN law for those with a HCP to carry.

Inside any place that serves alcohol for onsite consumption. (39-17-1305)
In any room where a judicial proceeding is taking place. (39-17-1306)
Schools. (39-17-1309 and 39-17-1310)
Public Parks and recreational property. (39-17-1311)
Any place with a properly posted sign per 39-17-1359
The law about carry where alcohol is served could change on July 1st.

A bill that would allow carry in places that serve alcohol has passed in the House, but with restrictions of no carry between 11:00pm - 5:00am in those places or any place that is age restricted. The Senate version of the same bill is scheduled to be voted on tomorrow, but that version has removed those restrictions. So not sure what the final version will be.

But whatever passes, if it does, will go into effect July 1st

They're hashing out the differences between the House and the Senate versions of the restaurant carry bill. The Senate's version had no "curfew" restrictions, wheras the version that the House passed did. Hopefully, it won't flounder in committee and will be signed by the governor.

FYI, TN is a "Handgun Carry" state. You have no obligation to conceal. There is also no law enforcement notification required, either.

Sitting in Tennessee - with my fingers crossed... that I will be able to carry while eating my dinner..... and not have to worry about myself or family members getting to the car safely....
