Missed Connection: 5 Spot Poet Seeks His Strawberry-Blond Soul Mate


1 comment

We've heard The 5 Spot's Monday night Keep on Movin' dance party called many things. Yours truly once deemed it Nashville's "Best Hipster Meat Market." GQ called it "the most stylish party in America." OK. Well, how about "Modern Eden"? Why, that's not the sort of booze-reeking moniker that a lovestruck late-night Lothario would bestow, is it? I submit that, yes, that's exactly what's going on here.

Last night, some 26-year-old, suspender-sporting Romeo — I have no evidence that the young man was wearing suspenders, but I'm a sucker for alliteration — was zinged squarely in the buttocks by Cupid's arrow. The object of his desire is a strawberry-blond lass who apparently answers to the name Lindsay. Lindsay must be something special, because our boy posted a Craigslist ad complete with a meandering sort of free-verse poem about her. Here it is, in its entirety:

we met
and parted
too brief
too sudden
strawberry blonde
and gentle
a soul
like mine
a smile
like heaven
5 spot
that night
modern eden
please please
glorious fate
return lindsay
to me

If fate is so glorious, wouldn't she have allowed you to get the young lady's number? Then again, are there phones in Modern Eden? There are shots of Fireball, after all.
