Unintended Consequences

The rule was supposed to keep beer joints away from churches... but now churches can't use some locations because of their proximity to beer sellers:
“Land just wasn’t available,” Arnold said. “To find 6 or 7 acres of land that you could build on that was affordable was very difficult, but there were plenty of lease spaces … the problem we were running into were landlords being apprehensive about leasing to a church because of the beer permit laws.”

Playing with Instagram

Funny how filters that reduce the clarity of a picture make it seem better. First, a Christmas gift from a friend. His family used to own the grocery store in Norris, but now it is a meat and craft beer market. Next are some familiar Chinese radios and one Japanese interloper.

Cultural Center of the World

Not only is Knoxville the center of the gun blogging universe (Uncle, Tam, Linoge, Les Jones, etc.), but we also like to read books. Heck, we might even get a new brewery just outside of town. Scruffy little town in deed.

New Holster

If you want to be the baddest man in the cul-de-sac, you need a holster for your beer.

Of course, if you want to be the baddest man in the cul-de-sac, don't wear salmon pants. (Also, you shouldn't describe a color using the word "salmon" either.)

Big Ed's

Big Ed's Pizza in Oak Ridge made USA Today's top pizza places. I like Big Ed's, but I'm not sure why. The place is a dive and not exactly cheap. And, if you have any left-overs, they don't seem to heat up as well as other pizzas.

I'm a big fan of Barley's Tap Room in Knoxville's Old City. If you are there in the fall, ask a waitress for a "pump nut." If you don't get slapped, it means you will end up with a fantastic half pumpkin and half hazelnut beer.
