  1. trust me I have been there, they still can't experience it because Tootsies is just another bar without being on lower broad in Nashville.
  2. There is an entrance at the corner of 8th and Demonbreun. Anywhere else on the 8th street side you would walk into exhibit hall d.
  3. not to be a spoiled sport but their business model may take a hit soon as they are not following regulations and are currently breaking the law by charging patrons for rides. They along with Uber, Lyft, the pedi-shaws, etc. are going to be in for a surprise in the very near future. You can't circumvent the law while others (register cabs, etc.) have to abide by certain restrictions, and get away with it for very long. If they comply then all will be well....
  4. nice comeback, I suspect the increase in the value of your property is due solely to things other than the improvements and additional businesses in the area that have come , in part, because of the tourism/hospitality industry. Actually the AMP is not a huge boon for the hospitality industry, in fact the tech industry and the medical industry are probably more to blame for the increase in calls for better mass transit. You know those guys and gals who are buying up residential property left and right all along this corridor. Hard to recruit bright young minds when they see the traffic mess and are unable to maneuver within an area they would like to live, work, and play.
  5. It's like the old saying "I can explain it to you, but I can't make you understand it."
  6. And I think it is wrong headed to not create more opportunities for mass transit, even at the expense of drivers. There is no law that says I have the right to all 8 lanes....unless of course we get into the political discussion again... Kudos to you my friend. You actually get it...
  7. What exactly is the difference, we need a solution. Got a better one?
  8. I am not sure I understand this logic that doing nothing will decrease the burden of the 1 person per car frenzy that Middle Tennesseans seem to love. Do we think that there will be less traffic over time? It only makes it worse for cars if people are unwilling to do something to make it better for everyone.
  9. If the only discussions are about new buildings going up, what type of materials are being used, etc. then no politics enter the thought process. When you start discussing the merits of things like The Amp, or the Convention Center when that was up for debate you are always going to have politics involved because that is all it is. I am certainly not without sin on this subject and I am not hiding from that, I just think you will have a hard time stopping it on certain subjects.
  10. Everyone is entitled to their opinion.
  11. Let's make sure what the phrase "lean more to the left" means to you. As I have witnessed that would be about 40 degrees to the right and about 100 degrees from just left of center.
  12. No one fought to keep a hotel out. The debate was over how the building would incorporate either the existing facade or replicating a similar one to keep the historic nature of the block. Same thing will be true for Walgreens.
  13. Wow, even more fascinating if you truly believe any of the Congressional or Senate Republicans have compromised with this administration at the National level. Well of course except Mitch, he loves him some Obama....
  14. They "compromise" because they are in the minority in City politics. Why do you think they want the State to step in so badly....
  15. At least we are having a conversation about how to fix it not how to stop it!
  16. It's not an MSNBC poll, just reported by them, but the sad part is we have come to the point where we have separate networks who we look to for "the news." What does that say about how we view things? You can find reports on this from a variety of outlets that have the same variety of numbers. The more important issue is we, as a society, are now so against any discussion unless it is "our way" that important issues like Mass Transit don't get solved they get debated. At least the Mayor is open to some compromise in order to move this project forward. My fear is both sides are so far apart that is will never happen. It's also not lost on me that in the end, ideology is the deciding factor. East Nashville loves it and West Nashville hates it and a guy who sells automobiles and one who sells gasoline are the leading opponents.
  17. everyone has a poll. this one is slightly newer. http://www.msnbc.com/morning-joe/meet-the-moderates
  18. I'm trying to do exactly that. The merits of civic policy are not party affiliated. In fact over 50% of the voting public consider themselves somewhere in the middle of that equation. Both parties are responsible for the messes and successes enjoyed in the Country. Change is the hard thing for many to accept but it is coming, it just takes time.
  19. People have great points on all sides but at the end of the day it is ALWAYS about ideology when it comes to issues like healthcare, public transportation, etc. It just is....
  20. I think the I won comment put in proper context was a statement that in a Democratic free voting society he got more votes, not once but twice, and by a large margin. All that means is more folks agree than disagree, by a large margin..........
  21. Having kids does not make your family's well being any different from those who don't have children. Families are families and we are all affected in some way. Your answer may give clues to the way you feel but that would suggest you have certain agendas like everyone else.
  22. Tony has until March 31, next Monday, to decide what to do with the Marriott project on Demonbreun. This may influence the rest of the projects, or it may not! When I said i hear there is a deal with Steve Smith and Tony on the Crow property is was not for Tony to rent it for construction but rather Tony to own it. It's all hearsay until they top out the building!
  23. i hear that there may be a deal between the two parties and Tony may aquire the Crow property.
  24. I would imagine that a portion of the costs will be through taxes just as roads and any other form of transportation is paid for. Is there something that says my tax dollars can only go for roads or am I allowed to take municipal transportation that does not make me purchase an automobile? And before the simple obvious reply of "take the current bus system" comes back, how about I would like a more efficient and quicker system that will move more people and allow for many of us to ditch the car...
