Bright & Early: Party Party Edition

Good morning, Nashville. Today’s the big day for the Opryland Hotel & Convention Center’s grand reopening. After being closed for more than six full months, losing out on about $40 million in revenue–not to mention, about $5 million in tax revenue for the city–they’ll be throwing a big ol’ party for the next few days and showing off their massive $270 million face lift. They’ve replaced miles of carpet and countless furniture pieces, added five new restaurants, revamped the check-in counters and even added a Porter Waggoner suite with an entire wall panel designed by the guy who designed Waggoner’s crazy outfits. They’re hoping that the grand reopening bash will draw enough media attention to let the world know that they’re back in business. And that we, Nashville, are also back in business. Go us.
