Happy Hour: Wheeling And Dealing

  • For everyone who’s been asking about how where all the flood donations are going, WSMV has the scoop. [WSMV]
  • Speaking of money, Radnor Lake is apparently going to need a $500,000 facelift to get itself back to its beautiful pre-flood condition. [WSMV]
  • If you can help it at all tomorrow, just hold your breath. Okay? [City Paper]
  • Proving that we here in Tennessee love to blow things up, one of our own was arrested in Rhode Island for setting off some fireworks in his hotel room which caused the hotel to be evacuated. [WZTV]
  • Google has posted some pre- and post-flood satellite pictures to help us visualize what our city looked like under water, from space. [Nashville Scene]
  • Mayor Dean is going to start “serious” discussions about public transportation next year. Seriously. [City Paper]

    I’ve never heard of the Snuggie before, but really, they’ve had these for centuries. They’re called ROBES. People used to wear them before pants came into style.

    • Yes, but would a ROBE pub crawl be nearly as much fun as a SNUGGIE pub crawl?

      On a more personal note, I’m a fan of the robe-in-lieu-of-pants thing. We probably should never have changed that.

  • I heard the crawl would be on March 5. Please say it ain’t so! That’s the boyfriend’s birthday and this won’t be his idea of a celebration. Plus, you gotta give people time to buy their Snuggies or Slankets (which I have now nicknamed “Smuggies” because, you know, they’re better than Snuggies).

    Incidentally, I love my Slanket too much to take it to a pub. I’ll be wearing a robe.

    • No crawl on the 5th! Another snuggie crawl website decided to compete with the existing one and someone scheduled one for that day, except they apparently have no one organizing it. So, don’t pay attention to it (they’re also hounding people on Twitter) and stay tuned for the real deal.

  • I thought of your upcoming pub crawl when I read this: http://www.nytimes.com/2009/03/01/fashion/01snuggie.html?_r=1

    Watch out for static electricity. 🙂
