@VR where did you move from? Just curious, as I know the BPAC is looking at other city models and taking input to see what could improve our roads here.
Haaaaa @Kim ... I may take you (and Otis, if I can catch her) up on that.
Amber, she did show at NYFW. They show more than the top contenders so the finalists aren't revealed before the show airs.
I LOVE THIS BOX! It makes me smile every time I walk past Fido.
No disrespect to the talented dudes on this list, but no lady bartender contenders?
Apparently it's necessary for me to point out that, as a former Yankee — or Midwesterner, or whatever you want to call people from central Illinois — I did not move to Nashville expecting to find a bunch of moonshine-drunk, barefoot people. I didn't know what I was going to find, because I'd never been here, and this was before you could virtually visit a city online.
What I *did* find was a community that I fell in love with. A community with an impressively high concentration of creative, hardworking people — some natives, some transplants — who were looking for a home, a place to build a life. Of course, this can be found in communities all over the world, but what I found here was home to me. I just hope this community can still be that open to people moving here, as the city is changing so rapidly.
And of course, there are assholes, native and transplanted assholes. Assholes are everywhere, but they're pretty easy to avoid, no matter where they come from.
Oh, and Fling Tea? I don't remember the exact recipe, but I remember a giant vat filled with pineapple juice, tea, TONS of sugar, and flies. Lots of flies. I seriously had nightmares about spilling the Fling Tea on that poor businessman ... the glasses at the Cooker were huge, and the Fling Tea soooo sticky. Yuck.
Depends on the guy, I suppose. And — speaking as a member of the female gender — we sure can dish it out, too.
