Just when you think you’ve been called every name in the book, along comes a new moniker. In response to a posting of mine on Nashville Metroblogging complaining of lack of dancing options in Nashville, Omri Ceren posted an article on Gridskipper purporting to list dance venues and, incidentally, referring to me as a “carpetbagging hottie.” Heh. Best left-handed compliment ever. I got a good giggle out of it, anyway.
But as to the original matter of the postings: dancing is not really a priority at most of the venues cited in Omri’s piece. I’ve been to Mercy Lounge quite a few times, and I can’t say there’s been dancing on any of those occasions — at least not by the bar’s patrons. And I’ve seen fights almost break out at Beer Sellar and Legend’s Corner, but I’ve never seen dancing break out at either venue. But Lipstick Lounge is a valid suggestion (one I’d already considered and dismissed, but may reconsider), and this NV Nightclub is news to me. I may have to go check that out.
I’ll be sure to carry my carpetbags when I go.
