'You Are So Nashville If …' You Wait Until the Last Day to Enter

You too could be the next Wando Weaver, Meredith Hunter or Ken Lass. But that means you'll have to act before 11:59 p.m. tomorrow night — Friday, June 27 — to ensure your shot at immortality in the Scene's "You Are So Nashville If ..." contest.

Even so, you're going to have stiff competition as the YASNI contest enters its 25th year. You've got less than 36 hours to submit the magic entry that slays your neighbors, tickles our readers and leaves your competitors shaking their fists. All you have to do is complete the phrase, "You are so Nashville if ..."

What've we got to talk about this year? Let's see … The Amp, charter schools, craft brews, Vanderbilt baseball, the World Cup, the drained lake at Centennial Park, the Green Hills skyscraper, the Sylvan Park roundabout, the Melrose marquee, the Ryman facelift, RCA Studio A, the First Saturday Art Crawl, wine in grocery stores, Will Pinkston, Record Store Day, Pilot Flying J, Two Ten Jack, James Franklin leaving, OZ Nashville, Al-Jazeera Nashville, Private Lives of Nashville Wives, Stacey Campfield, barbecue on Belmont, Scarlett on drugs, Policymic on East Nashville, competing farmers markets, Diarrhea Planet, Crazy Hearts, drones, Third Man Records, Barista, Thicker Than Water, Two Old Hippies, decriminalizing marijuana, The Contributor, that other street paper that's not The Contributor. Oh, and having improper relations with an ATM and a picnic table.

Do not post your entries below in the comments box. We will route them straight to YASNI Siberia, the special purgatory reserved for entries about the intricacies of Old Hickory Boulevard or pronouncing "Demonbreun." Instead, fill out the online form — again, by the end of tomorrow night — and start rehearsing an acceptance speech for the July 17 issue that sounds humble. May the best YASNI win!
