Happy Hour: Weekend Is Nigh

  • Remember, westbound I-440 will be closed again this weekend! Closures begin at 4am tomorrow and run through 5am Sunday morning. And then you have the whole Titans traffic snarl to deal with for the game on Sunday, which they will win. [WTVF]
  • Provisional ballots were tallied in the District 5 recall election and Jamie Hollin won by two votes. Two! Candidates have five days to file for a recount. [City Paper]
  • A state trooper accidentally forwarded a racist email out to nearly 800 state employees when he was, you know, simply trying to send it to himself so he could print it out and maybe hang it in his cubicle or something. The mistake will cost him two weeks’ suspension without pay and a few hours spent in diversity training. [WZTV]
  • An Elizabethton woman was picked up on drug possession and a DUI when she kept trying to shove a $20 bill at a police officer because she thought the officer was a Sonic carhop. Easy mistake, right? [WZTV]
  • Jay-Z tonight! [WSMV]
  • The Metro Parks & Rec department is only laying off five people instead of 55. [Tennessean]
