Good morning, Nashville. A few months ago, Nashville unveiled a brand new bike sharing program downtown in hopes of encouraging us to drive less and bike more since parking is pretty scarce these days, it’s getting kind of smoggy in here and we’re a little fat. But only three of the 30 bikes are being used each day on average and a quick trip through the article’s comment section reveals that the bicycles may often have flat tires and feature foot brakes, to which many cyclists are not accustomed. There are also some complaints about the process of checking out the bikes. So although it’s a neat idea, it sounds like we’ve got a long way to go.
- Not ready for this. We’re dragging our Snuggies out of storage and gearing up for temperatures in the 20s this weekend. THE TWENTIES. Seriously.
- Cheers! Let’s all raise a glass for our neighbors in Sparta, Tennessee who passed a new law allowing liquor by the drink this week by just 13 votes! But raise it later, as it is the morning time and we don’t encourage that sort of debauchery.
- Bits & pieces Frothy Monkey/Burger UP owners Mike and Miranda Pontes recently bought the Greenlight Market and Deli … Oh no, scandal at Tootsie’s! … Nissan will be installing 1,500 free car-charging stations around Middle Tennessee by 2012 … Metro Council members will vote tonight on the plan for the Hickory Hollow Mall.
