People, Bugs, and Sunspheres
"Well, we are all safely back from the 2012 Entomological Society of America meeting held in Knoxville, Tennessee but also known as 'K-Town' (I actually never heard it called that, and frankly I hope I never do, but Wikipedia told me that was one of the city's nicknames)....
"Knoxville hosted the 1982 World's Fair, and the conference center is embedded in what remains of the physical infrastructure for the meeting. There were also lots of nice shops, restaurants and bars in the area which makes all of the aforementioned visiting even better."
