Happy Hour: It Must Be Food Truck Day

  • A measure that would allow wine to be shipped directly to any house in Tennessee has at least passed the state Senate. So if we can’t buy it in grocery stores, at least we may be able to have it delivered to our front doors. [WTVF]
  • That other bill allowing supermarkets to actually sell wine was delayed in a Senate committee today after a colorful debate about how it might affect liquor stores. Supporters took the opportunity to point out that it could generate as much as $14 million in extra tax revenue for both the state and its localities. [WTVF]
  • Metro is still going back and forth on the redistricting process, and not everyone is pleased with it. [City Paper]
  • Someone decided to hang a confederate flag from the Shelby Street Bridge this morning, which is apparently not such a rare occurrence. Folks noticed quickly and the flag was removed by Metro Public Works. [City Paper]
  • Well done, Nashville! You raised more than $50,000 for Japan disaster relief at last weekend’s Cherry Blossom Festival. [WTVF]
  • If Nashville’s looking a bit more fashionable this week, it’s because our very first Lexus Nashville Fashion Week kicked off today and runs through Saturday. Project Runway’s Christian Siriano will be in town along with a whole slew of other designers from near and far. Check out the website for the schedule and details. [WKRN]
  • Also, Tin Pan South got off to a great start today, featuring some of the best songwriters from all over the country. Check their website for the rest of the lowdown. [WSMV]
