Happy Hour: Burnin’ Up 4 U

  • The Jonas Brothers (you know, the band with that kid who dumped Taylor Swift by 27-second phone call) announced their new tour dates that include the Sommet Center on August 25th. How excited are we right now!? Okay, we’re really not that excited. [WKRN]
  • Never one to be left behind in this recession, a bartender at Ombi on Elliston went out on a limb and bought the whole restaurant from his employers after they said they were going to have to sell or shut things down. We’ve gotta admire a man with commitment, so if you find yourself out and about and looking for a place to eat, keep Ombi on your short list. [WKRN]
  • With such gloom and doom and economic destruction in the headlines these days, WKRN is looking for some happy recession stories. You know, stories that get us all teary-eyed and optimistic. Submit yours over at Nashville Is Talking. [Nashville Is Talking]
  • While Metro is probably having to cut $15M and more than 200 positions from the school system, they’re still paying someone who quit eight weeks ago because payroll didn’t get the memo. [WSMV]
  • Dell is laying off an undisclosed amount of people from undisclosed offices in Middle Tennessee, and since we know a few of you guys work there, please know we’ve got our fingers crossed for you! [Nashville Business Journal]
