|Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, and local residents will soon have another option when it comes to bacon and eggs.
The Egg & I is slated to open its doors on Monday, Nov. 26, between Red Robin and Middle Tennessee Medical Center, according to general manager Kevin Daher.
He explained how the Murfreesboro location would be the first of five restaurants in the Nashville area.
Created in Colorado some 25 years ago, The Egg & I has “expanded across the nation based on the simple premise that friendly people serving delicious food matters,” the website states.
Serving breakfast and lunch entrees, The Egg & I goes beyond the typical “scrambled or over easy” styles of cooking eggs. Menu items include New Orleans Benedict (home-style biscuit topped with Andouille sausage and tomato gravy, diced ham, green onions, two poached eggs and hollandaise sauce) and Greek Fritatta (diced ham, artichoke hearts, roasted roma tomatoes, asparagus and portabella mushrooms. Topped with basil pesto and Havarti dill cheese).
Additionally, The Egg & I offers gourmet coffee, 100 percent pure-squeezed orange juice and a variety of benedicts, omelets, waffles and whole-wheat pancakes, along with an assortment of non-egg dishes. The lunch menu is comprised of creative sandwiches, entree salads and hearty, homemade soups. And breakfast is also available during lunchtime.
The Egg & I will be open from 6 a.m. to 2 p.m. Monday through Friday, and from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday and Sunday. The community is invited to visit The Egg & I on Sunday, Nov. 25, for a Special Kids fundraiser. Call 615-867-2525 to RSVP for the event.

Get ready for the holiday travel season
As the holiday season approaches, Nashville International Airport wants to ensure that travelers, as well as guests picking them up and dropping them off, prepare for an expected increase in holiday air travel from mid-November until after the first of the new year.
The following tips can help provide passengers and guests by staying on time and taking advantage of airport amenities, both pre- and post-security.
• Take advantage of the closest, most convenient parking option. BNA recently reduced the Short Term parking rate 20 percent as part of its new, simplified parking-rate structure. The Short Term parking garage is covered and closest to the terminal.
• Enjoy a reserved parking section for Frequent Parker Program members. Members of BNA’s Frequent Parker Program can park in a reserved section of Long Term A for $15 per day. Passengers can sign up for the program at www.flynashville.com.
• Drop off and pick up rental cars at a new facility. The Consolidated Rental Car Facility, located within easy walking distance to the terminal, opened in November 2011.
• Children 12 and under and passengers 75 and older may keep their shoes on during security screening. Learn more about TSA passenger screening and travels tips at www.tsa.gov.
• Allow Extra Time. All travelers are urged to arrive inside the terminal at least two hours before their flight due to the anticipated heavy volume of passenger traffic during the holidays. Call your airline in advance to obtain the status of your flight and its recommended check-in time. You may also go to flynashville.com to check arrival and departure times.
