By they way, when did Nashville turn into Miami Beach or New Orleans? The place was crawling with drunks and bridal shower parties (including a large intersection of the two). They have “party bikes,” which are weird contraptions that allow groups of people to ride around town drinking bear. It’s fucking insane.

Like 6-7 years ago

Okay, thanks for cleaning that up. I guess the last time I was there was in 2009 to see Ry-ry. It’s really too bad. I don’t like drunks.


#5362

So fucking droll, you legend. :smile_cat:


#5363

Yeah Nashville is crazy downtown around Broadway. Peddling parties and brides with veils and shit.

I feel like it’s been like that since I first went there in 2011.


#5364

Those pedal bars are so dumb. I can’t believe people actually use them. I’ve never thought to myself “yeah, this buzz is nice but I wish my ass was sweaty.”


#5365

They look like they’re one step away from a human centipede.


#5366

Drinking bear would be insane :bear::joy:


#5367

That’s how little I drink: I can’t even spell “beer.”


#5368

This stuff is everything, which is apt, because I am putting it in everything. :egg::ice_cream:

I want everyone to know that @nick just accused me of being an elf come guzzler and well…… he’s not entirely wrong. 🤷


#5371

I just ordered her cake batter, cream cheese frosting, peanut butter, butterscotch, and cheesecake flavors too. I am a believer. Flavor oils forever.

Ugh. I used to love running up to Nashville when I lived in Athens. But, my last few visits have been kind of disappointing for the reasons s you mentioned. Parts of town that used to be cool little enclaves away from the broadway mess are slowly being gobbled up.


#5373

Guess we’re not moving to Nashville.


#5374

Yes, I remember going to Nashville in the mid-90s to see a Shawn Colvin, and we walked around Broadway. I mostly remember a bunch of record stores and no drunks. I should have known something was up when there were two bridal shower groups on my flight from O’Hare.


#5375

No, in addition to the drunks, a bunch of rich people have been moving there and are inflating the real estate market. If there were only enough of them to turn the state blue…


#5376

Austin sucks too.


#5377

Come to Louisville instead. Still cool.


#5378

Agreed. I love Louisville.
