  1. Agree. Disney, the king of "learn-tainment", had to completely scale back the learning that was EPCOT and turn those attractions into something that drew better crowds. I just don't love the idea of the learning theme. Maybe that's a way to get sponsors? Dollywood is an incredible park IMO. But she continues to lean a little more on family attractions versus thrill... which is fine. The video of their new family coaster "Big Bear Mountain" looks *fun* but not "OMG IM GOING TO THROW UP!" Edit: I would add the Wild Eagle is one of the best coasters I have experienced. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sFb5wzjAo8w
  2. Asurion Nashville did have direct impacts to the job loss. I still have friends that work there and yesterday was a very crapty day at the company. Asurion expanded quickly with brick and mortar repair business (buying companies) and also a fleet of repair vehicles. Some speculate those rapid growth decisions were not the best. I do believe this is more about the economy/recession than preparing to go public.
  3. Not to get off the MLB topic, although maybe it pertains, but the traffic control from law enforcement could be better coordinated. Flowing the foot and car traffic directly towards Wedgewood is a nightmare. Coming out of lot E I would like to turn left and head to the 100 Oaks area. Spread it out. People walking towards Wedgewood dart out in front of cars and I have seen many come close. I waited 45 minutes just to park once because the cops and those controlling pedestrian traffic into the close lots were not coordinated. In any case, there's no question that the parking situation is a major problem for NSC. I am glad you haven't experienced that. Can you give up your secret parking spot? But I do understand that large events will have "traffic". I have been to so many Preds/Titans games and concerts. I don't mind walking from the MCC to Nissan for games... But the NSC situation is just different.
  4. Have to disagree. I have season tickets at Geodis and it's a nightmare. I have had tickets in lot E and getting in and out is maddness. The first game, my friend sat in the race track parking lot for hours waiting to get out. Now, obviously one can park far away and walk a long distance and maybe traffic is "better". But if you park close, it's a cluster to get out.
  5. I took this shot when I was downtown last week. Gives you an idea what’s available down there.
  6. Took the drone out last night (finally). Beautiful night in Nashville. Even got the Batman building looking in the mirror
  7. I saw where Oakland's attendance the other night was a little over 3,000. Wow. Isn't that one of the teams that want to relocate? If a team re-locates, could their current ownership possibly work with this ownership to bring baseball to Nashville? That would be enough monetary resources, right?
  8. 1000% agree. And what's nice for photogs is the setting sun to the west illuminates the glass towers in a beautiful way. The "golden hour" and "blue hour" is fantastic from this viewpoint.
  9. Drove by there yesterday... really a huge prescence! That disgusting brown/gray/cream building next to it... will it get any other facial updates? It's horrible.
  10. Anyone think this would kill the FIFA World Cup "hosting" chances? That's a lot of money the city could gain from that event. I would like that new shiny stadium, though.
  11. We had season tickets for a few years for TPACs broadway style shows. I am sad to see that go but, like everyone is saying, a change to the street activation would be huge in that area. Obviously we need a new performance hall. Would we get better shows/talent for Broadway traveling shows if we had a top tier facility? I am not sure how that works.
  12. Tennessee Soccer Club is bringing two USL teams to Nashville. A USL women's team and a men's USL2. Not sure on location specifics. TSC USL
  13. Richard Seigel park in M'boro has around 20 soccer fields. They've been spending a fortune replacing about 10 of them with artificial turf and an indoor soccer arena. They just held a national youth soccer showcase that brought several hundred college recruits and teams from pretty much every state. This will be good for M'boro!
  14. Very interesting. Richard Seigel park in M'boro has around 20 soccer fields. And they've been spending a fortune replacing about 10 of them with artificial turf and an indoor soccer arena.

  15. Plus you need "flat" land. There isn't much of it in Williamson County along the 840 corridor between Franklin and the Rutherford County line. This just feels like a "Wilson County" thing to me.
  16. Honestly, big Pharma needs to continue to focus on a "treatment" instead of a vaccine. The bullseye is changing too much with these variants. But having something like a Tamiflu that can turn this from "deadly" to "a mild 3 day inconvenience" would be great.
  17. My wife and I both had our vaccines and both got "break through" Covid cases. Her symptons were mild and lasted about 3 days. Mine felt like the full-blown flu for 2 and a half weeks. I still don't fully have my scent/taste back yet and I was positive back in September. Can't imagine what it would have been like if I wasn't vaccinated. The narrative needs to change from "get the shot to stop the spread" to "get the shot to stay alive". Because no matter what we do this thing is mutating and spreading.
  18. I am sure it has everything to do with the parties that happen on Broadway. Think "25 year old blonde girl with uggs and country hat waving a peace sign with the batman building behind them" times 1000
  19. That's kind of sad. This spot was a great spot for a quick/cheap lunch. That place was PACKED with construction workers when these hotels were going up. But no property is safe to the Nashville growth!
  20. So what this means is that properties 1 & 2 are in the mix now? Because who would build anything around the P.O.S. PSC property as is?
  21. My kids are 16 and 14 now but back in the day we would go to ASC and lots of other museums like that. Murfreesboro, Chattanooga, etc... and all the aquariums. (Chatt, Gatlinburg, Atlanta...) ASC never changed much. Most other places have those large corporate sponsored "Traveling exhibits". ASC had lots of open spaces and a need for a paint touch-up here and there. Certainly not a place to go to frequently unless you just want them to play on the indoor tower-playground. The astrology side is pretty impressive. I know it won't happen but moving that to the Bicentennial Mall would be great as long as they can handle buses. I think having a dedicated historical building at the ASC site would bring in more than we think. Not just about the battle of Nashville and Fort Negley, but Nashville's history in general during that era. With Franklin, M'boro and Shiloh in the near area, a Nashville Civil War stop would bring in visitors.
