An Educational Bar Crawl: An ode to a dirty old bar

Posted by on Nov 22, 2017 in Arts/Entertainment | 0 comments

I was young, didn’t look like a local and didn’t know what I wanted. I’m still fairly new to the bar scene and still technically new to drinking unless you count the hunch punch created by a panel of confused college students. I handed the bartender my ID, and he examined it three times over because I still look like a child. “Rum?” I asked. “Sure,” he said. “You got anything to put in it?” “We only got coke,”...

Posted by on Nov 22, 2017 in Features | 0 comments

Chandler Chastain “My favorite thing about Thanksgiving–or really any holiday at my house, is “orange stuff.” It sounds so weird, and honestly it is, but it’s a food dish that I just can’t live without.

Through this piece, I am not trying to create an ‘’us vs them’’ approach. I feel very pleased, happy and blessed to...

Adam Brown, sometimes called Dave, but not necessarily Dave Brown, is a sophomore at Maryville College. He hails from a little town in Tennessee that you may have heard of: Knoxville. He grew up like many millennial men: in a middle class home that was in the image of the American Dream.
