BW, if you're still listening, we've had great tamales from The Tamale Pot. We've found them at the Grow Local Kitchen at Nashville Farmers' Market some weekends. I wish they would make more frequent appearances, or find a storefront somewhere. Their creamy green-chili rice is amazing too. Twitter is probably the best bet to keep tabs on them: https://twitter.com/TheTamalePot
I'm looking forward to Boone & Sons, which the Wild & Local folks are opening in East Nashville. Prepared meals to go, and other stuff, as I understand it. Lots of craft beers too. I really enjoyed the lobster sandwich too, but agree, the split bun would seal the deal.
Reagan, I hope it was clear that the Thanksgivukkah thing is tongue-in-cheek. And regardless, it won't happen again in your or my lifetime, so regardless, you can rest easy.
Westendrail, I understand your concerns about small businesses. But it's a question of letting people choose which product they like. And I still contend that they're aren't too many coffee shops in this area, regardless. And Roast, for instance, is 1.6 miles away. If people are selling a good product that customers like, they will likely succeed.
Westendrail, that's kind of like saying, "Why open another restaurant in the Gulch?" Not all restaurants offer the same style or quality of product, and the same is true with coffee shops. And frankly, Barista Parlor is excellent. Are you suggesting we shouldn't have competition, or a free market? Let the consumers decide which business they want to support. Furthermore, there are a ton of people who live and work in the area. To suggest that there's a glut of coffee shops in the neighborhood relative to the population doesn't really hold water.
Punkin' Head FTW!
OK Spurge, but let's give Grand Funk its due. I submit for your consideration, exhibit A: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mZj1uElADZw
Is it over-the-top cheesy cock-rock wankery? Of course. But as such, they did it pretty damn well. Stick it out at least till the guitar solo, which features some pretty hilarious stagemanship. And what about the drummer's outfit?
