N and I have been looking for a place to "land" since leaving Brooklyn last September. San Diego made the short-list - climate being the primary motivator - but after having visited for a long weekend we found it wanting. Strange to find a city too clean, but we did. Looks like Nashville will come out the winner we thought it would. We did have a good time, though - and highly recommend Cafe Chloe (the croque madame was fantastic), and Zymology 21 (enthusiastic staff, science-y presentation and genuinely interesting cocktails).
On the long ride "home" to Havasu we also stumbled on the bizarre, chaotic sign-post above. The desert does strange things to people.
