  1. I don't patronize companies like Chick Fil A that are owned by homophobics. And don't get the attraction for mediocre food anyway.

    I understand this is the fourth marriage, so much for the family values the video seems to focus on. Of course he was a big supporter of Roy Moore in Alabama.

    Understand from a very reliable source that Zara, a European department store, will be part of the new section in the mall. Zara sells clothing that is very European and would be considered a higher end than H & M and better quality. It does seem odd that no official names of the new stores have been announced.
  4. I agree that this is a quality development and shows you can have it if you set standards and don't simply loosen the standards to appease big developers. Green Hills, like most of the city, is being inundated with two tall skinnys on what was formally a lot for one home. In almost every case, they have to dig across the street to connect for utilities and NEVER fix the street back to what it was. Why are they allowed to get away with this?

    The Transportation and Mass Transit Megathread

    Mayor Briley is moving toward a project that will do what several of you have stated, focus on one area and make that work before expanding. He mentioned that a project on Dickerson Rd. would be a rapid bus line with additional incentives for businesses and residential to build on/ near the line. It will also be within the current time budget or at least not start with any new taxes. Also discussion of the busses being able to control the traffic lights and hopefully in places where it could be done, dedicated lanes

    Agree on many of these comments. My main issue is the increasing number offering small plates at prices in the $14-20 range which is too high for very small quantities. The concept is good in that you should be able to sample a number of things and still come out around what a normal entrée would be but most of these you can't as you end up with a $40 bill for one without drinks. A couple does it well, Americano's on West End has small plates as does Barcelona in Edgehill. I do disagree about Silo, I have had mostly positive experiences except the extra charge for blue cheese olives for a martini.

    Couldn't agree more, it seems that almost everyone that challenged the assessment won the challenge and their assessments were lowered substantially. I have no idea how or who allowed this, but it needs to be looked into and someone held accountable. We do also need to STOP the payments to former council members who lobby, Jerry Maynard for General Hospital for one.

    Nashville Bits and Pieces

    Just spent the weekend in Charlotte for my first visit and was very impressed. The B of A and Duke power buildings are impressive in architectural style and height, much more so than any of our talls. I don't like bashing our architecture like many do, but have to say we are significantly behind Charlotte. The condos and apartments downtown or Uptown as they call it are also sharper and vary more than ours. Their NFL stadium has brick and glass and has significantly more curb appeal than NIssan Stadium and is right downtown as is their relatively new AAA baseball park, which does look similar to First Tennessee Park here. I love Nashville, but hate to admit that we are behind Charlotte and don't even get me started on how beautiful their high end mall is called South Park....all brick, heavily landscaped and has a very upscale consistent look, couldn't find one bill board like we have in GH.

    And consider voting for a Governor that will stand up to the rural nut legislators that seemingly want to also govern Metro Nashville.

    I sorta disgree about the country music, took some friends from out of town and we bar hopped. Most of it was the newer country covers which often doesn't sound very country which may be donNdonelson2's point. But what all of them said and we heard it all night from others was how talented the singers and musicians were in every bar we went into. They also couldn't believe they were hearing so much talent with no cover charge. We also went to Rudy's Jazz room and saw a local singer who teaches at Belmont in the music department and she is fantastic with both standard jazz and her own song. Go see Stephanie Adlington there or she also performs at Grays on Main in Franklin or Sambucca.

    Can we move on from the constant complaining about the Westin? I see new things on there and then look to find the same griping about it. Time to move on please.
