  1. Nashville food and beverage scene

    From Eater Nashville (and all I've got to say is - it's about freakin time...) : "One of New York City’s Finest Delis Is Headed to Nashville’s Fairlane Hotel" https://nashville.eater.com/2017/12/7/16746234/mile-end-deli-fairlane-hotel-nashville
  2. More Accolades for Nashville

    Nashville came in at #2. "Forget New York - millennials are flocking to 10 US cities to get a job, buy a home, and start a life" http://www.businessinsider.com/best-housing-markets-2018-millennial-home-buying-2017-12

    I can only imagine the lawsuits (or class action) against homebuilders and Metro Nashville if the city insists homeowners remediate building setback issues. What're the owners supposed to do?...hack off 5 - 10' of house? Tear down, redesign and rebuild the entire home? Wow, what a mess.
  4. Soccer in Nashville

    Metro Nashville filed a motion yesterday to dismiss the Save Our Fairgrounds' lawsuit. http://wkrn.com/2017/12/01/metro-nashville-files-motion-to-dismiss-save-our-fairgrounds-lawsuit/

    That can happen, but my gut says highly unlikely, anytime soon. Almost any lawsuit requesting injunctive relief usually has to satisfy 4 main things...I won't list those here.... But suffice it to say, those 4 things require the plaintiff to have their shi! together -- so that the presiding judge will rule favorably. To do so, it's my understanding that the word 'balance' comes into play a lot in the judge's decision: which parties will be more/less adversely affected by the injunction (is it fair?), how would an injunction affect the public, is the injunction reasonable based on existing contracts, state law, etc., etc., etc. Who knows how stacked up the courts are right now? Just my ill-informed ¢2. I'm not too worried, but I'm also wrong a lot.
  6. Thanks Mark. Good to know. But I sure hope it doesn't take a decade or more to improve. The recent tragic killing of the elderly man taking out his trash a case in point.
  7. Yep. I'd heard from someone recently the relo would be Antioch, but cannot recall my source (crappy memory, sorry).
  8. I'd be willing to bet a large sum of green - that he does. So much crime correlates directly to that housing project. I can't imagine anyone betting millions without hedging it somehow.
  9. Nashville Bits and Pieces

    From Bloomberg: Shortage of homes in the U.S. expected to ease over the next 3 years. The article opines this might eventually have a moderating affect on home prices. In the meantime....... Embedded in the article is a list of the projected highest appreciating housing markets for 2018. No. 1 is Nashville -- projected at +7.7%. https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2017-11-29/u-s-home-shortage-eases-in-2018-realtors-say-home-prices-next
  10. Apologies if this has already been reported. http://fox17.com/news/local/property-across-from-opryland-to-become-office-retail-space-and-multi-family-housing
  11. Wow. Just wow, Nashvylle -- that's one of the most gracious things I've heard in an age. Bless you for that. Wish I we're as optimistic. I'm afraid your boys are coming for blood...and Saban is the best in the business. Hopefully, a GREAT game with zero injuries (Fitzgerald last night was gruesome)!! WDE & RTR!
  12. My source said "yes" - but I agree - seems likely he was overly optimistic. So, Happy Thanksgiving, friends! I have so much to be thankful for. Sorry for the over-sharing, but the last 18 months have been really tough, health-wise. This site has been a source of entertainment, information and education in the midst of pain and fear. Thank you, guys and gals, for your contribution to my healing! Bill
  13. I wonder what parameters and metrics constitute 'Stability'...? Lots of fails there, though we did well. Interesting.
