Webcams Around Town

Posted by on Apr 26, 2009 in Pictures | 0 comments

We recently launched a new section to OxfordMississippi.com and thought we’d make an in-formal announcement. The section? Webcams. 3 to be specific, all located at Lamar Blvd & University Ave, each facing North, East, & West. [UPDATE: We've now added two cameras located on the Ole Miss campus] Speaking to the northbound camera, here’s a neat snapshot I caught yesterday as Double Decker was ratcheting up.. Westbound even allows you to follow gas prices at the Chicken-on-a-stick Chevron. We’ve provided a permanent...

Stopping By Snackbar

Posted by on Apr 18, 2009 in Restaurants & Bars | 8 comments

We had an opportunity – last night – to drop by recently opened Snackbar, John Currence’s newest entrance into the Oxford restaurant scene. Described as “French brasserie fare and the foods of the American South”, it’s also home to Oxford’s only raw bar, serving (among other things) a Currence favorite – Apalachacola Bay oysters. The space is interestingly separated into two distinct levels, the lower providing table seating and raw bar, and upper featuring full bar, a communal table, and several...

Looking Forward to Double Decker 2009

Posted by on Apr 16, 2009 in Oxford | 2 comments

My absolute favorite time to be on the square in Oxford, Mississippi is coming up. Double Decker Arts Festival is just around the corner on April 25. To me, Double Decker means old friends fly in to spend some time on the square and in their favorite local bars for the day. For my friends and I, this usually consists of congregating at Murff’s for most of the early afternoon. After we have worn our welcome out there, we head out onto the square to look at arts and crafts and listen to some tunes. Since “real” drinks are not supposed...

Happy Birthday OxfordMississippi.com

Posted by on Apr 8, 2009 in Oxford | 5 comments

April 8th, one year ago, our little site was born. 106 posts later and over 13,500 visitors logged. But you. Most importantly, you. Thanks. Thanks for visiting, and reading. We’d like to think this site is an ever evolving work in progress. From prose, to art, to photography, to video – to anything. In some ways, I think we’re channeling Bill Ferris, documenting Oxford, for everyone today, and tomorrow. We’ve got lots of other neat projects brewing as well – RowanOak.com being one (it’ll mainly serve as a...

The Inn at Ole Miss (aka. The Alumni House)

Posted by on Apr 3, 2009 in Hotels - B&B's | 2 comments

I wasn’t quite sure what to expect, having never stayed there. Sure, the Alumni House (its original name) was around during my college days, but it never quite registered as an actual place to recommend visitors. And being called The Alumni House added to my early confusion (were alumni only allowed to stay there?) The original exterior (seen here) added to my hesitations. It reeked of a dormitory setting, and although it had no shared bathrooms, worn-out beds, or stanky rooms, it’s appearance led me to believe otherwise. What a...
