Arcade, Nashville by Liesl Pfeffer

Arcade, Nashville, Tennessee
June 2016

A two-story arcade in downtown Nashville modeled after an arcade in Italy. I went here because I read about the art spaces on the upper level, but unfortunately they were all closed when I went by. 

The Walgreens adjacent to this arcade was one of the locations of the Nashville lunch counter sit-ins in 1960 - a nonviolent student protest against racial desegregation. 

Dino's Bar, Nashville by Liesl Pfeffer


Dino's, Nashville

I dearly love dive bars like Dino's. I think they're in my top 10 things I love about living in America. I love the dimness, the cheap beer and shot specials, the bags of chips, the old decor, the seediness of having a beer in the afternoon, the regulars sitting at the bar, the bartenders' tattoos, the jukeboxes, the dartboards and pool tables, the everything.
