    Whoa! I wake up, check the news, and see this! Very exciting, and a great win for the city that will avoid killing it with an influx of 50,000 new people. This is going to be great for the office space market downtown!

    I lived in CC for 3 years. It has gotten its act together and is quite a bit better today than even 6 or 7 years ago.

    Having lived in Crystal City very recently, I'm not sure where they'd put a campus that big. There are quite a few empty lots, but they'd have to spread it out a bit. Unless they start tearing out residential neighborhoods, or even the existing office areas, most of which have recently undergone huge amounts of renovation. Also, the infrastructure there is already pretty much maxed out. I'm surprised they didn't go for some place like Tyson's Corner or the Eisenhower Ave section of Alexandria.

    Induced demand is a b!itch...

    Oh my gosh, how could I forget that. I used to love going to Kats games! Too bad AFL petered out.

    Before the Titans and Preds, I only recall going downtown a few times, and then it was for things like school trips to the state museum or the Capitol, or very rarely down to Church Street Center. But, once the Preds and Titans came to town, we were down every other weekend during the season, which I'm sure is a very similar experience to thousands of other middle Tennesseans growing up from the mid 80s to the early 00s.

    So I believe it's too late to request the ballot. I got mine about a month ago and I put it in the mail today. Hopefully it'll make it on time...

    Soccer in Nashville

    Can someone please post some excerpts? WSMV stopped allowing access from devices in the EU. (More evidence they're a trash news organization...) EDIT: Found it on the Tennessean https://www.tennessean.com/story/news/local/2018/09/04/save-our-fairgrounds-lawsuit-block-mls-stadium/1196684002/ Can the judge fine them for filing frivolous lawsuits? This same suit was thrown out of the same court by the same judge in December.
  9. Exactly. The AirBNB twist they put on it likely stifled a huge amount of demand. People who would be willing to pay the prices they're asking for (hopefully) wouldn't want to deal with the extra crap from drunk tourists.

    Nashville International Airport

    Problem is, that's just flying one leg of the trip through BNA. If we fly in and out of BNA, they're around $950/ticket, and only the outbound flight is available direct (flying in on a Thursday and out on a Friday). I really hope another airline comes in soon to put a little downward pressure on prices and increases seats if it's this insanely popular! That was my thought exactly. I wonder how long until they start twice a day flights on high traffic days.

    Super excited about this. My dad is taking the flight from BNA to LHR on Monday to visit, and I'm flying back around Christmas. Problem is, flights around the week of Christmas are all $800+ round trip, and no direct available...

    That's what I have here in the rural-ish part of the UK I live in. Well, sort of. Trash and recycling collection alternate weeks. There are collection centers you can take waste to if you must, but I have to say that it certainly has incentivised recycling separation.

    Wonder where the public outcry over $43 million being spent on 3 miles of road the majority of people will never use is...
  14. It looks like they combined the collections of the State Museum and the Military Museum here. Is the Military Museum still open below the War Memorial Building?
