Too bad there isn't an IHOP.

There's a Shoney's near the airport, if that's any consolation.

Man, you can't swing a cat in that part of Nashville without hitting an IHOP. You're safe.

My Medieval History teacher always says that: you can't swing a dead cat without hitting the plague or something else. Honestly though, I've never been to IHOP, but it sounds cool and it's the International House of Pancakes! When I first heard that name I thought it was a joke.

Wow, you've never been to an IHOP? What have you been doing, living in a cave or something? :roll: :P

Scomo goes to a school which is about three blocks away from an IHOP. :roll: I had pumpkin pancakes there... Mmm...

I had the pumpkin pancakes recently - at IHOP. Pumpkin muffins at Paneras are mighty yummy too.

3 blocks away from IHOP, 3 blocks away from the Mall of America.

It was there that I discovered my love of cheese eggs. Anyway, the Motel 6 and Waffle House are still there. Cheap rooms and cheap food.
:lol:


Don't take this the wrong way, Your Honourable Worshipfulnessitude, but I've read a couple of your "Tales From The Road" so Motel 6 is probably some front for white slavers with a side line in Mongolian prophylactic smuggling.

I'm (only just :roll: ) too young to end up in a dumpster with a gay Korean biker (sob! :( )

Mind you, the waffles sound good :lol:

On a more serious note, d'you reckon the whole conference will be worth a listen?

Doug Gresham (C. S. Lewis' stepson) will be there. Yes, I think the whole thing will be worthwhile. The full-blown website for the conference will be up in March. There should be more info available by then.

OK, this Nashville thing's looking a distinct possibility as I've managed to turn it into a pre-Christmas shopping expo so my Beloved can come too!

Does anyone have any practical experience of the town? We were looking at hotels in the Vanderbilt area as it looked pretty central. Is it a town you can navigate on foot? We don't really like the prospect of driving but I know some places in the US aren't overly blessed with sidewalks!

Any good malls/outlet stores?

Any good pubs? :lol:

All info greatly received!

We have a band member who lives there, Mr. Mendians. I'll put your question to him and get an answer. He'll be here tomorrow, doing the last of his drum tracks for The Inconsolable Secret, which will be performed live (to some extent) at The Inconsolable Concert in Nashville next November.
WAY COOL! You're actually coming over. I guess that means Alien has to make her way here now. There has to be an Inconsolable Forum Bash and attendance is mandatory!

This, from Amy Sturgis who is one of the folks running the conference...


I should have the details early in the week, but here's what we know now:

* we are partnering with a hotel that will have a special conference rate for attendees
* Belmont will provide shuttle service to/from that hotel at the beginning/ending of each conference day (complimentary)
* the hotel will also have a shuttle that can bring attendees back/forth to campus during the day on a first-come, first-serve basis (also complimentary if the stops are within two miles, which Belmont will be)

I am 90% of the way to working out the arrangements with the particular hotel -- and this one also has complimentary made-to-order breakfasts -- but I don't want to give the specifics until we have names on dotted lines. So for this moment you can say that we'll have a deal with a hotel that will be a discount package, and we'll have shuttle service. :)

Will get back to you with more ASAP. :)

Wow. That's really cool, you know.

Amy

PS. I meet week after next with the Pres of our Channel 4 here in Nashville to start talking about real media coverage...
