Harsh toke dudes! I've been here for about 4 years now and it's loaded with good food, a few good record stores and lots of cool people. Hanging out down on Lexington (must be where Elle is talking about) is like a hippy touristy version of Beale street, so yeah, if thats not your scene, skip it. But if you want to walk around downtown, it's not nearly as unbearable as Beale and is actually blessed with a few redeming local businesses. Great video store, best Indian I've had(outside Manhattan),two decent record stores, awesome coffe shop(IZZY'S) and lots of little shops. Great used bookstore as well.
