Gov. Haslam, we need to have a word.
Now, we know you like to dine out for lunch. We've seen you at Arnold's and other places around downtown, and we always appreciate the fact that you and your entourage don't jump line.
But as our friends at Gabby's point out on Facebook, today was not your day:
The Governor came in today. We told them it would be smart to order ahead. They said no, he would wait in line like everybody else. I guess he didn't think the line would be so long. He decided to come back another day. Line was really long today. #justsaying
There's a strategy for eating at one of the best burger places in town, especially one that's experiencing the Best of Nashville Bump: Call ahead. We did it today and walked past 15 people for our Seamus burger — perfectly cooked — and a side of their fantastic fries. If you call ahead, you go straight to the cashier. Now, you have to find someplace to eat it, but there's nothing wrong with sitting in the parking lot, as more than a few people were doing today. It's worth it for that burger.
Just tell us you didn't go to the newly reopened McDonalds on Broadway when you got shut out. As political sins go, that one would be unforgivable.
