Good morning, Nashville. Putting nutritional info on the menus may not just be a city-wide issue anymore. Governor Phil is making a case for a bill that would spread the love all across the state of Tennessee. As we’ve previously pointed out, we are a bunch of fatties here in ye olde Volunteer state. Actually, we’re the one of fattest in the country. We can’t be sure that this information would make us all change our eating habits overnight, but we are pretty sure that most of this wouldn’t look quite as good if we actually knew what we were doing to ourselves. That said, there’s free food, Dr. Pepper, and live music downtown today at 11:30am if you’re up for venturing into the CRS craziness (thanks to Erin A. for the tip)!
- Bible Park fail. Are people seriously still discussing this? Our neighbors in Lebanon have officially decided to revoke its support for putting Bible Park USA in the middle of Wilson County. Which gives us hope that maybe the developers will finally go pick on some other state.
- Grrrrrr. Since we like to brag about our alma mater as much as we can, Belmont University senior Alex Renfroe was named Atlantic Sun Conference Player of the Year for 2009, which we hear is a pretty big deal.
- Bits & pieces. We finally get to say goodbye to Tangredis who were forced to close down their two shady restaurants, Michael T’s and Tangredi’s Italian Kitchen, last week … Amazingly enough, the Preds have pulled themselves back into the running for a playoff spot … The TVA Prez sent out an email yesterday reminding employees that buying Xboxes and booze with the company credit cards is probably wrong … There was a shooting at Buffalo Wild Wings in Madison yesterday that left one guy injured … A man was severely beaten in the Green Hills Mall parking garage overnight.
