At least we don't live in LA.
I ♥ Downtown Franklin!! I wish this article had mentioned the theater to open in June. With it in the mix, I bet we're in the top 3.
There's a much bigger conversation here, which I believe the article alludes to, of what it means to be a growing city with increasingly materialistic ideals. Green Hills Mall seems to be an alternate dimension where the economic uncertainty gets drowned in delusional fits of shopaholic denial.
While Davis Kidd was very much a safe haven in the middle of an otherwise star-studded location, the crowd that comes to be catered on, sold to, doted upon, and 'seen' feels a duty to carry the facade of the "Princess" (spoiled brat) mentality throughout the visit. This includes those who end up at Davis Kidd.
Nashville isn't a city of ME ME ME. Nashville is a city of HOWDY! -- courteous, kind, respectful, and pure. We must refuse to continue the trend toward 'my stuff makes me valuable' and usher in a trend toward 'my contributions make my community valuable'.
Davis Kidd, as it was before it was bought out, will never be. But we can take this as an opportunity to realize that we are changing as a city. Whether it's for the better or worse is up to us.
