Oxford Time Machine (aka. OTM) highlights ‘then-and-now’ photos of the surrounding community. It’s a hobby project of ours : ) Some interesting info about this house: Originally built in 1851 as a honeymoon cottage for Jennifer Nabors Sandifer. Appropriately, Oxonians through the years began to refer to the house as “The Honeymoon Cottage”. The magnolia trees found on the property were planted after the home’s construction, and are known to be the oldest and largest in town. enjoy! View Larger...

Thank You, Neko Case

Neko Case The Lyric 9/25/2008 Oxford, MS As debate anticipation and chaos fell more heavily upon the Square, and our Republican and Democratic nominees landed in Oxford, so did Neko Case’s needle. And as that reference is nothing without its lyric, so The Lyric was nothing on Thursday night without its star. And a Star Witness was I. The Lyric, Oxford’s newest music venue, opened its doors in July and has since occupied its stage with the nationally-toured voices of Conor Oberst and the Mystic Valley Band, Jenny Lewis, and The Drive-By...

Part II: The Oxford Bar & Restaurant Crawl

Posted by on Sep 18, 2008 in Restaurants & Bars | 3 comments

In June I posted the first installment in my “Oxford Crawl” series – that post detailed the best locations in Oxford for happy hour, an appetizer, and dinner (and can be found here). Today I’ll continue a perfect evening in Oxford with recommendations for after-dinner drinks, dessert, end-of-the-night drinks and a midnight snack. After-Dinner Drinks In my view after-dinner drinks should be accompanied by one thing…live music.  There are a myriad of live music venues in Oxford, including The Lyric, Two Stick,...

A Stroll Around the Square [PIC GALLERY]

Posted by on Sep 7, 2008 in Pictures | 3 comments

Thought we’d share some amateur photography shots we took around the Square a few weeks back. And not the typical shots you see of Oxford (ala Faulkner’s Rowan Oak, the Courthouse, City Grocery), but the shots you never seem to notice. The small scenes. The trashcan. The backstreet. The window reflection. The neat shots that seem to backfill the city pulse. So, with that said, Enjoy. [click the first, or any, photo to start the...
