Flooding and Restaurants

I know it sounds like a rather narrow topic considering the magnitude of this event. But we'll leave this as an open thread for anyone who wants to report damage or other flooding issues with area restaurants. The flooding will be devastating for many businesses in Tennessee. At the very least this will let patrons and others know what is occurring. For everyone with a home or business impacted, we'll be thinking of you. For any restaurant impacted- once you reopen for business send us an e-mail and we'll let folks know. In the meantime for the rest of us, it's time to pull together. Here are some links where you can help:

The Community Foundation has started a flood relief fund: http://www.cfmt.org/index.php

Hands on Nashville hooks volunteers up with those who need help: http://www.hon.org/HomePage/index.php/home.html

I was in a restaurant this afternoon and the Metro Health Department came in. They were apparently checking all restaurants near flood areas to see if they had any water damage and had done proper clean-up. Kind of nice to see a proactive response. Kudos to Metro.

The Beer Cellar and Hooters were already closed due to some structural issues with their building. If you know where they are located, oh-boy~~!

I am going to try a do a bike run through downtown this week and see whats up.
