Don't Be a Scofflaw

Broadway is not the only place in Nashville with bars but if you read the news, it can feel that way. Now that the mask-less behavior of Broadway bargoers has made the digital tabloids and bars are mandated to close at 10 p.m., a coalition of downtown bars and restaurants are launching a campaign that puts health and safety first. The Mayor has also put the downtown drinkers and other non-mandate follower on notice saying he "expects this weekend to look very different" from an enforcement POV. Data will tell if any of these campaigns and words flatten the curve.
