If you work downtown, or just like to hang out where the tourists do, you should definitely subscribe to the weekly Downtown Details newsletter, a publication of the Nashville Downtown Partnership
. They've always got the scoop on events, deals and new restaurants downtown, and they even include a list of which conventions are visiting in town
so you can figure out who is singing that particularly wretched version of "Jolene" at the karaoke bar.
This week, I saw an item that I figured was worth sharing. Fleet Street Pub in Printer's Alley is offering a half-price lunch deal this week through Friday, Oct. 18. That means you can enjoy their English bangers and mash, Hatton Cross Hot Hen, hand-cut french fries, desserts and more at 50 percent off. With a deal like this, suddenly a few bucks to park downtown seems a little more reasonable. And they can even help you with that, too!
