Buggy Date Night

Since Anthony and I date weekly there are bound to be some hits and some misses. Even during the week’s when we have misses we always find a silver lining and a way to connect with one another. This week’s date was definitely a miss, but Anthony and I had a great time connecting with one another. This week’s edition of Weeknight Date Night was selected by me, and we rode in a buggy from Music City Buggies.

First, let me say this won’t be a normal weeknight date night post, because this is the first time I’ve ever NOT recommended a business to my readers. I found a groupon online for this business, and I bought it for $45. I went on their website to make a reservation, but they didn’t have a place to put the groupon code. I then called to make a reservation and the lady told me I couldn’t use the groupon that day, but that wasn’t specified on their website. Their website doesn’t give an accurate location, because they are located in front of Subway in the Gulch. No, they are literally on the sidewalk in front of Subway.IMG_20170906_231009_304Once we finally found where they were located we were given a buggy to drive. The lady briefly told us how to operate it. We’ve done several dates where we are driving things and the other businesses always had test driving in the parking lot before we got on the road. Once we got into the buggy the lady told us there was no reverse. So, she had to push our buggy into traffic in the busy section of Nashville, TN called The Gulch.

For our trouble she let us have the buggy for an extra 15 minutes as if that was a fair trade. Once our ride was over we drove back to return the buggy, but the lady wasn’t outside. Anthony called and the lady said they’d be back in 5 minutes. We returned the buggy, and the lady said my $100 deposit would be refunded back. It took 4 days for my $100 deposit to be credited back to my account.

I do NOT recommend Music City Buggies!!! They have poor customer service and all of their methods aren’t safe.

Now that that’s over let me tell yall a positive story. Once we got the hang of driving the buggy and found a less congested area to drive, we actually had a good time. Well, that was until I noticed I lost my wallet. As soon as I told Anthony about my wallet I looked at my phone and a guy name Chris had found me on Facebook and told me he found my wallet. We met Chris and his wife and they gave me back my wallet. It was a quick 2 minute exchange. I said thanks and gave him a hug.

I was so moved by his honesty I began to look at his Facebook page, and I discovered him and his wife were just married days ago. They live in Minnesota which is funny because I used to live there and my immediate family still resides there. (Anthony and I go visit every Christmas.) I found Chris and his wife’s wedding registry and bought them a gift to show my appreciation.

Although we experienced HORRIBLE customer service and unfavorable business practices we were able to encounter two nice, genuine and honest people from the Midwest.

I really hate putting anything negative on the blog, but I don’t want my readers to visit a place that doesn’t deserve their time or money. Praying next week’s date is back to normal.

Until next time loves…

  1. Now I would say I would love to try a Buggy date but definitely not like this. Poor customer service is an absolute no. Looks like they could use a lesson from Chris. So glad you met a kind soul and buying them a gift from their registry was the perfect thank you.


  2. I’m sorry about your experience but what a blessing that you got your wallet back. The fact that you even gave them a wedding gift made me smile. It warms my heart to know that good things like this is happening in a world that is so crazy right now.


  3. That definitely sounds like something I’d try. My husband and I, have decided to do something new and exciting every month. This month it’s a horseback riding lesson.
    And I absolutely love that you bought that couple a gift. That was so sweet. In my younger days, I used to stalk random registries and send gifts anonymously.


  4. Omg I love the concept of your blog and how you share about your date nights, it’s so nice to read it from someone and hear about their honest experience. What a nice way to inspire me and my hubby as well as other couples to have more dates! And thank goodness for that sweet couple that found your wallet!


  5. You know, I have had similar experiences with coupon sites like this. It’s important that you share because people want to know the good, bad and the ugly.


  6. I’m sorry this wasnt a good experience, seems like a fun idea! I hate when Groupon and the Company arent on the same page! But I am glad you found your wallet and the gesture of the wedding gift was sweet!!!


  7. You guys made the best of that night and that is awesome. The Buggy ride itself sounds like fun, you just need a less janky business owner. That is crazy and her “establishment” won’t last very long.

    Kudos to the guy that was honest and returned your wallet. I love that you purchased them a gift. I bet that warmed their hearts just the same.


  8. Thanks for the honest review! A buggy date night does sound fun minus the customer service. No reverse- no bueno. This story reminds me that there are still good people in this world. Good of you to return the favor, I’m pretty sure it was much appreciated.


  9. Oh my goodness that’s terrible! There’s no way I’d wanna be riding around in anything in the Gulch or downtown, where there’s no reverse. That’s scary. At least you had brakes tho 😀 Thanks so much for sharing this becase we will NOT be doing this one. I do want to go on a date with the B cycle bikes soon.
