The auction includes, but is not limited to, some impressionist art, a Louis Vuitton gun holster, a Ms. Pacman game, a Titans soda machine, some Ed Hardy stuff, and our personal favorite–the ol’ glow mirror marijuana leaf picture.
- Speaking of drugs, 11 Nashville stores were shuttered for selling that fake marijuana in which Miley once famously partook.

- More rain the forecast, and we sure need it.
- A big improvement project is in the works for the stretch of 5th Avenue between Church and Union, which will include “a canopy of lights high enough to be seen from Broadway.”
