Happy Hour: We’ve Got Our Work Cut Out

  • Historic Nashville, the group responsible for saving the Ryman Auditorium back in the ’90s, has released a list of historic places that are the most endangered. The list includes our precious flashy neon signs like the one that used to guide us to the Donut Den on our darkest of nights. Leave the neon signs alone, please! [WPLN]
  • And neon signs aren’t the only thing in need to saving, apparently: The Scene reports that our beloved Family Wash may not be serving up their savory shepherd’s pie much longer. Nashvillest pint and pie night next week, anyone? [Nashville Scene]
  • In case you weren’t a giant fan of the Tennessee state quarters that came out a few years ago that featured the stereotypical twangin’ guitars (or were they fiddles?) on the back, we’re getting another shot at it with a new Tennessee quarter that depicts the Smokies. [WPLN]
  • Police have sent out special hazmat teams to check out a package at Charlotte and Old Hickory in Bellevue, which we hear has caused quite the pile-up in both directions. [WSMV]
  • A new program at Meharry Medical College aims to reduce Tennessee’s infant mortality rate, which is among the highest in the nation. [WSMV]
