From Burial Grounds To Ballparks 10 Noteworthy Nashville Headlines

From Burial Grounds To Ballparks 10 Noteworthy Nashville Headlines

The following is our by-no-means-comprehensive and by-no-means authoritative Nashville news roundup, with a focus on real estate and all the continued love Nashville is fetching in the national press.  

1. The Nashville Zoo is home to a burial ground—just to the right of our beloved zoo’s ticket booth are five to 15 bodies. This isn’t new information, but it’s become public information as of late because the zoo has announced plans to expand its entrance beginning in June, to the tune of $6.8 million. As such they will relocate the bodies to the nearby Croft Farm (also on Zoo property). This news, as you can imagine, has not gone without some controversy. 

2. With the State of the Union address behind him, Obama’s a’comin’ to Nashville tomorrow.  

3. Have you heard about the free historic home at 1818 Eastland Ave in East Nashville? Of course you have; it’s been all over social media. Just in case not, it’s that mysterious vine-covered Victorian just down the hill from Jeni’s. Apparently there were more than a few people who stepped up to the plate and claimed it, offering to relocate it elsewhere. It will be interesting to see where it actually lands.

4. Speaking of real estate, Monday saw the groundbreaking of the new $150 million Nashville Sounds Sulphur Dell ballpark just east of Bicentennial mall. The ballpark is set to be built over the next year and will be a mixed-use space that incorporates restaurants, shopping, and parking garages. Stoked!

5. 22 Reasons You Should Visit Nashville Now, according to The Huffington Post. Except that, you know, you already live here and stuff.

6. The East Nashvillian posted a very solid 2013 in review round-up.

Two Ten Jack opened Monday night in East Nashville’s Walden complex (ya know, where Ugly Mugs and Jeni’s lives). It’s an izakaya and ramen restaurant that’s supposed to be the bee’s knees. There’s also an eastside vegan restaurant in the works.

8. USA Today’s Travel site recently highlighted some of East Nashville’s best shops.

9. Even has joined the tidal wave of good press about Music City.

10. Aaaaaand joining the fray: A Travel + Leisure poll has dubbed Nashville the 10th Sexiest City in America. The least sexy city? Memphis. Wahwah.
