Thinking Man Tavern | Neighborhood Dining |
Topic: Local Information 3:54 am EST, Mar 13, 2004

] Eschewing the trend toward fancier pubs, Thinking Man is
] a throwback to hangouts like Trackside Tavern, where the
] owners most recently paid their bartending dues.

One of the coolest bars I've yet found in Atlanta... They have a bunsen burner collection. And Paulaner on tap. And the jukebox... Pixies, Portishead, mid 80's REM, Luscious Jackson, Thievery Corporation... perfect...

Instead, it was a lesser-known HBO program, Da Ali G. Show, that infiltrated a black-tie Nashville Opera fund-raiser last week at Loews Vanderbilt Hotel. In the show, British actor Sacha Baron Cohen adopts several different personas to goof on people. To target the opera fund-raiser, Cohen turned into the character of Borat, a naive TV reporter from Kazakhstan.

What, We Worry? Yes. (
Topic: Local Information 1:40 pm EST, Jan 18, 2004

] The United States is overextended, not just militarily
] but economically. We are trying to do too much, borrow
] too much, spend too much, and sooner or later we will
] have to suffer the consequences. We are a country in the
] beginning stages of what can best be described as
] hegemonic decay.
Empires take decades if not centuries to
] wither, a process more clearly viewed through a rearview
] mirror; Edward Gibbon's masterful account of the decline
] and fall of the Roman Empire is perhaps the greatest
] example of this truth. But here and now, we're much less
] inclined to Gibbon's viewpoint than we are to Alfred E.
] Newman's. "What, we worry?" is pretty much the national
] motto when it comes to our finance-based economy and its
] future prospects.

Another major investment guru weighs in on the trade deficit.

Band's tour manager says he had documents about use of pyrotechnics
Topic: Local Information 11:09 pm EST, Mar  6, 2003

] The tour manager for a rock band that was on stage when a
] deadly nightclub fire broke out told investigators he has
] paperwork outlining the band's general use of
] pyrotechnics, but he said all the documents specific to
] that show were destroyed in the fire.

OK, I blog this just because its a good lesson. The legal documents pertaining to who is responsible for what go in a SAFETY DEPOSIT BOX or at least a FIRE PROOF SAFE. Leaving them lying around in the same place where the event, business, or other interest in question is occuring is abysmally dumb for exactly this reason.
