Re: “Starlite Club

The manager lady did a great job with booking bands and keeping things running over the last couple of years. But it's a damn shame that the owners lost the vision, lost the goal, lost the interest to keep the place going.

There is a tremendous business opportunity in Nashville for a place like Starlight, where you can hang out and watch people or dance, have dinner, have a good time, raise a little hell, no pressure, no drama, no traffic, no parking hassles.

But no... they didn't care enough any more. A damn shame, and I hope that someone else with VISION comes along and takes up that opportunity.

Re: “12South Taproom

The Taproom has elements of the ideal beer bar, but the full package still eludes Nashville.

The good:

-Variegated selection, especially if you like West Coast beers
-Decent local representation

The bad:

-Imbalanced regional representation (Too much GA, not enough NC/VA)
-Overpriced and forgettable food. This tends to be a problem with beer bars because it's a good business model: get a couple beers down your patrons' gullets and their standards are lower, so you don't have to try as hard. Can't say I blame them.
-Overwhelming noise inside

What to fix:

-Make good use of the real ale rig and serve more cask beer
-Cut food prices 15% or step up your game
-Do something about the noise inside: Quieter music, acoustic panels, rugs, etc.

Some good other suggestions below

Re: “The Lake at Westhaven

Awesome Saturday or Sunday afternoon:
Stand up paddle board, kayak, canoe, peddle boat rentals from http://www.paddledogadventures.com/ plus Tiger Meat hot dogs, Oscar's Tacos, Ching's Chinese, and one of the best coffee houses in the South: High Brow Brew.
Fishing and feed the ducks, too!
Great for families, dates and even kid birthday parties!

Re: “Commodore Lounge

Home base for a some of Nashville's biggest, best and/or newest songwriters. I like that six out of seven nights a week, established and newbie writers can also sign up to perform there after the scheduled sets. I've seen and heard a lot of great performances there! Also great food, free parking and no cover charge--cool deal!

Re: “Bobby's Idle hour

This is the home-boy (and girl), not-on-the-tourist-maps songwriter dive bar to end all dive bars. People don't come here to impress, they come for the original music (no cover tunes allowed) and fun...not unlike a Nashville version of Cheers, only it's right on Music Row. You never know what industry professional who may work or record nearby might wander in and even get on stage, day or night. This place has a history like no other in Nashville, even the Bluebird. Now that there's no smoking, it's even friendlier to a larger base of fans. Strongly recommended if you're into substance over glitter.

Re: “The Cave

You go to a jazz club, and the best you can say is you had the best cheese burger? Lame, lame , lame.

Re: “Twin Kegs II

Sundays from 3-7pm for great blues and good food. Musicians are allowed to sign up and sit in for 3-4 sets. Come on down, you won't be sorry!

Re: “Tennessee Legislative Plaza

Just taxing, regulating, legislating, limiting, nanny stating away! The majority of Tennesseans support major marijuana reform while this group of back slappers want to wonder in the marijuana prohibition wilderness wasting millions ruining lives all for not.

Re: “The Arts at Center Street

I've attended three different productions at the Arts and Center Street. Both times I was overwhelmed with the talent and emotion that was portrayed on the stage. All of the productions were original content that was relevant and thought provoking.

The most recent musical, Alien, was amazing!

Re: “The Arts at Center Street

I've seen good performances at The Arts at Center Street before, but I wasn't expecting this. 'ALIEN: The Musical' reached deep to my conscience in a way that only live-drama can. It's an awakening for those of us who've forgotten the courage it takes to love.

I can't comment about it without saying that the music and dialogue are outstanding - Gregg Garner is a truly gifted individual, and I'm so glad he shared his gift with us. The actors did an exceptional job of bringing it to life in characters I won't soon forget! #TeamDolan

The sincerity of this production touched my soul. If you experience it, you'll remember what it means to be human. I'm dying to see this again!

Re: “The Station Inn

We went in to see some great country music but instead former SNL performer and now local fat disgusting rightwing nutjob Victoria Jackson was hoisted on us.

She sang an unbelievably offensive 'song' about the President being a communist, along with every other usual slur including the birther nonsense. I don't know what was more offensive, her lunacy, the band bringing her up there, or the audience laughing at it.

When I said something to the sound guy, he said "If you don't like it, there's the door."

DO NOT support this ridiculous venue with your money. There are many great music in venues in Nashville that will not hoist this disgusting nonsense on you.

Re: “Chad's Winter Wonderland Christmas Drive-Thru

The thing that I did not like is you get in and it is advertising after advertising. For 15 bucks a car and more than an hour wait....the last thing I want to see are miniature billboards advertising businesses. You would think they made enough not to do that.

Re: “Rippy's Smokin' Bar & Grill

I found several choices for a pulled pork sandwich walking the streets of Nashville. Same for live entertainment. I selected Rippy's because of the music coming from 3 guys playing acoustic guitar that was drifting from the inviting open front. There was a female signing on the rooftop too, but I never made it upstairs. Food A+, service was quick, friendly, music was good, and everyone was accommodating. Perfect choice for that beautiful Sunday afternoon.

Re: “Dino's Bar & Grill
