An Unexpected Wednesday Night Bar Crawl

Posted by on Aug 10, 2009 in Pictures | 1 comment

It started as a quick drink with Morty at 208. It unraveled into a 6 hour bar crawl through the Square. Mort was testing out a new low light lens on his camera, so we were snapping shots all along the way.. Our path was as follows: 208, Two Stick + din, drop by Daniel Morrow & Music in the Hall space, Taylor’s Pub, Proud Larry’s, Murff’s, then Rooster’s. Pics below, plus around town shots as we floated from place to place.. enjoy! 208 Daniel Morrow Floating Around Town Taylor’s Pub Proud...

Posted by on Jul 23, 2009 in Hotels - B&B's | 0 comments

When the announcement dropped in late 2006, it was a doozy. Oxford’s first boutique hotel, spa & condo development had been announced. A $25 million dollar project with a purported 100,000 square feet of space and located a half-mile from both Ole Miss & the Square. Upon completion in winter of 2007, it’d house 85 hotel rooms plus 16 condos. And to top it off, it’s location on Jackson Avenue was catty-corner to Star Liquor. Zing. If you drive by the location today, though, you’ll see Star Liquor, but you...

Big Bad Breakfast + Pulp Fiction = Comedy Gold

Posted by on Jul 18, 2009 in Videos | 1 comment

During the 2009 Oxford Film Festival, there were a few short films shot around town re-enacting diner scenes from blockbuster movies.
