When Opry Mills opened the first time I was there the week after the Grand Opening. It was insane! There were literally people jams everywhere. I remember waiting in line to get to continue walking!
Tonite Kelly and I gave it a try. It wasn’t crowded. In fact, if you looked at the restaurants the crowd was down significantly. Not many people waiting at all. We walked around the circle. I was disappointed to find that there wasn’t a cut thru from one side of the circle to the other.
Several weeks ago I heard a commercial for the new Lego Store. I was pretty pumped. I remember playing with legos as a kid and seeing how big a structure I could make out of legos. I’d get about a foot up or so and it would crumble, so I was excited to see what the professionals could build. They let me down! There’s not a giant lego castle in their store! There’s not even a little lego beach house! No lego ocean either. Disappointing! Kelly loved the Vera Bradley store, but the highlight of my night came with the floating shark flying above a kiosk in the food court. How awesome that would be for VBS! I’m going to find a way to work him in somewhere!
