Uh, I went to Frothy Monkey this morning for coffee and spotted a flyer for a "Nashville is the New L.A."
one-year anniversary party tonight at Lot 7. Lot 7 is apparently the new Bar Twenty3, but that's kind of beside the point. (Or is it?) Anyway, so I'm looking at the picture on the flyer (above) trying to mentally note exactly how many levels of gross are going on with this concept, and I can't even find a mission statement for who thinks Nashville is the New L.A., why, what's wrong with them, if it's tongue in cheek or if it will ever stop.
But so far, I can tell their interpretation of L.A. involves edgy haircuts, "attitude" and champagne and chocolate-covered strawberries.
OK, so then I locate the "slogan": "Celebrate Nashville's Growth as a city and the shirt that says it all!"
Let's not get carried away. OK, let's.
"Take shots off the ice luge! VIP red carpet entrance!"
Back at the office, I began "investigating" this party, which is to say I went to the website and clicked through a few links. After making the least amount of effort possible to find out what the hell is going on, here's what I can tell you:
It's been 1 year!
