Posted by on Jul 10, 2008 in Restaurants & Bars | 0 comments

Two rules: 1) I am always right. 2) No cheating. Cell phone usage is punishable by death. Welcome to Two Stick Trivia Tuesday. As the name implies, Oxford’s favorite sushi bar hosts trivia night every Tuesday at 10 p.m. If you want a good table, get there at 9. However, you cannot be seated before 10:00 unless you order from the menu, and appetizers don’t count. The entry fee is $5, and Pabst Blue Ribbon is in endless supply for $1. And this is how it works: -Select a team name. (Bong Hits for Jesus and Standing at the Edge of Tomorrow...

4th of July Wrap Up

Posted by on Jul 7, 2008 in Oxford | 2 comments

Old Venice Pizza Company & the Burgundy Room deserve a well praised Thank You for taking a stand and remaining open on the 4th, as it seemed all other businesses on the Square were closed. Me and the Mrs. hit both, and as thanks, tipped heavily. Our next stop was the Grove to catch the trailing moments of the Mid-South Navy Band. The weather had cleared up at that point, temps were in the mid 80′s, and the environment was darn ideal. The local 3-5 year old population had staked claim on the “mosh-pit”, and were running in...

1106 South Lamar – Oxford Time Machine

Posted by on Jul 2, 2008 in Oxford Time Machine | 3 comments

(I pulled the historical tidbit below directly from the Heritage of Lafayette County reference book) Built in 1858 by James E. Eades, who sold it to Dr. John Thompson. For many years, it was home to Dr. & Mrs. B.S. Guyton. When Dr. Guyton purchased the home, he modernized it by removing six two-story square columns on the front and adding a wide veranda. ——- Oxford Time Machine highlights ‘then-and-now’ photos of the surrounding community. It’s a hobby project of ours :...

Meet the New Dickie Scruggs

Posted by on Jun 30, 2008 in Oxford | 2 comments

Per Reuters, and Yahoo News, it appears Richard “Dickie” Scruggs has grown a beard, dyed his hair, and now wears glasses.. Hmm, I wonder what the chances are of this ‘fake Dickie Scruggs’ being grabbed, due to this story, and getting tossed into the clink for the 5 year sentence.. He better watch his back.. (thanks for the confirm on this,...

4th of July Activities

Posted by on Jun 29, 2008 in Oxford | 0 comments

The Fourth of July is right around the corner and as people began planning their beach trips to sandy get-a-ways, I begin to plan my attire for Sardis Lake. Not only does the city of Oxford offer a spread of local events, there is also a man-made lake just down the road that will house every person wishing to celebrate independence with a little water. Most of my past experiences involve Sardis and a friend’s boat…and yes, Sardis can be just as fun as Pickwick Lake. Hey, if you don’t have a boat, then there are a few beach options...

A Night on the Square

Posted by on Jun 26, 2008 in Oxford | 0 comments

I had an alt collection of evening shots around the Square leftover from the old Casio digital camera, and rather than junking them, I thought I’d throw a majority of them into a pseudo music-video collage powered by this really amazing (new) online application called Animoto.. enjoy:

Oxford is Cool

“And I can’t decide if this place is make believe…” - Widespread Panic So Jack asks me, “What does Oxford mean?” I pause for a minute, thinking it futile to try and define Oxford in your traditional Merriam-Webster sense. I explain that Oxford is a unique town that, like Rome to Vatican City , completely encompasses another making them inextricably linked. I explain that Oxford is a place steeped in history and tradition. A place- even in is darkest hour- was probably still described as quaint and charming....

So Long Salumeria, Goodbye L&M's

Only a few days remain to walk past L&M’s Kitchen and Salumeria and wonder what the “BLAH BLAH BLAH” artwork located just inside really means. A favorite in Oxford Square dining, its doors will close at the end of the month as a result of the ongoing construction just steps away from its entrance. Avant Construction, Inc. of Water Valley, Miss. has been contracted to construct “Vieux Carrè: Oxford’s Premier Destination for Luxury Living, Shopping, and Dining.” Banners overlooking the construction claim, “Our Space, Your...
