Good morning, Nashville. As we reported last week, the undead took to the streets of Nashville on Saturday, scaring tourists and dripping fake blood from Riverfront Park to the Parthenon. We’re not sure what the final count was, but we’re pretty sure it was well over 100, with a few more wandering around looking lost. More photos over here. Share your own snapshots in the Nashvillest Flickr pool, and who knows: We might just toss a few up here for everyone to see.
- Gone With The Wind. If you were stuck in traffic on I-65 yesterday morning, you may have noticed that semi that blew over in some of the 40 mph gusts. Another semi and and SUV weren’t able to swerve in time and resulted in a pretty big pile-up that shut down the entire southbound side, but everyone was alright. Moral of the story: Heed those wind warnings.
- We Can Has E-mail? We hope you stocked up on your Forever stamps, because starting today, it’ll cost 42 cents to mail a letter. Nashville Is Talking can’t figure out why it matters, since no one really mails letters anyway. We have to admit that we’re not real sure, either.
- Goodbye, Longhorn. If you work near Music Row, you might be interested in hearing this one: the Lyle Avenue Longhorn Steakhouse is officially closing next Saturday. We at Nashvillest would like to suggest Otters on Demonbreun if you’re in mourning. We realize it’s all “apples and oranges” and everything, but is there really a bad time for Otters?
- Recycle, Reduce, Reuse. Our friends at Curby are painting the town green this summer, setting out their trademark recycling bins at most of the big festivals and events around town. Thanks, Curby!
- Department of Wrong Numbers: A guy out in Warren County accidentally called a deputy to order some marijuana. And yes, they arrested him.
