I absolutely adore my town. Nashville has been making a bit of a splash lately as the next “it” city, even getting some attention from the Huffington Post and other media. And I love that almost every single place on their list is somewhere that I either frequently dine or, well, frequent, or it’s at least within a few miles of my house. Lots of good stuff here.
And Nashvillians don’t like to just go fun places, we like to go there in unusual ways. When I first moved to town, it wasn’t unusual to get stuck in traffic behind a hipster on a giant bicycle. Sometimes a gang of hipsters on large bicycles. Something like this:
And of course during the warmer months, lots of folks in our neighborhood zip around town on one of these. I admit, I have lots of Vespa-envy. Some day.
Also a favorite around town, the classic truck. There’s one that parks in front of my house quite frequently and I’m often tempted to leave them a note asking if they are interested in selling. I would LOVE to roll around town in a classic truck. Think:
But never….never….in my life have I witnessed anything quite as unusual as this. Well, not until last Wednesday anyway when I was driving down 10th Ave on my way from a friends house back to my house, and I passed the following:
Sorry the clip is so short, but yes….that was, infact, a man on a razor scooter being towed by a pair of huskies. Maybe he’s training for the Iditarod? Or maybe……maybe…..I honestly can’t come up with a second scenario.
Here’s to you, hipster on a scooter with huskies. May your shirts always be plaid, your records indie, and your dogs mush.
