I’m over there wondering about just who’s being left out of our It City.

  1. I’ve totally seen Little Richard drive by in his big black SUV!!

    All I would add to your piece would be the costs of being poor in an It City. I cannot even imagine how different my time would be if I were arriving in Nashville now and trying to afford housing there while being a grad student, even with Vanderbilt being on the high end of grad school stipend salaries. And grad students live in a funky sort of socio-economical category that often doesn’t compare to people for whom that same $25,000 (or much less) is their regular salary forever.

    Places like Prince’s should check IDs and have a visitor surcharge, or maybe a local’s discount would be more commercially viable.
