Good morning, Nashville. Today marks an important milestone in the history of our fair city’s quest to become legit: Today, Urban Outfitters is finally, FINALLY having its grand opening shindig. Now if we could somehow get an H&M and an Ikea and build the highest skyscraper in the Southeast, we would never have to go to Atlanta again! At any rate, we’re as excited as anyone about Nashville getting just a little bit hipper (or hipster?), so we’ll probably be checking out some of the festivities tonight. And because Will Hoge, who did not die in a scooter accident last year, is going to be there cranking out some tunes for the occasion. If you decide to brave the crowd, don’t forget to bring a few cans of food for Second Harvest. We hear it’s what all the cool kids are doing!
- District 18 election today. Today is also the day of the District 18 showdown for Keith Durbin’s Metro Council seat, which he left vacant when he decided to ditch the council for the Mayor’s office. So if that’s your district, you’ve got until 7pm to read up on your choices and cast your vote.
- Your village called. Kelley Cannon, the woman accused of murdering her lawyer ex-husband in Green Hills last year, has violated her probation for a second time–by cutting off her ankle monitor, running away, and then coming back and trying to tape it back on. Because surely no one would notice the tape.
- Bits & pieces. Changes to the Music City Marathon track “may generate excitement,” which sounds kind of dangerous … The Nashville Kurds are coming up with some creative ways to keep the younger Nashville Kurds out of gangs … Okay, we seriously love this kid … The Metro Council wants to come up with a way to punish habitual parking offenders (*cough* Oshi) … Southeast Asians love their turtle meat, and both Tennessee and Kentucky may be where they’re getting it (obligatory Turtle Man video).
