Written on Knoxville Cuisine's Identity Crisis:

Reuben's is a good deli, but they dont steam their sandwiches, which was my point. Also, did you not read the part where I specifically mentioned that firehouse isnt the same? They steam the meat and cheese, then put in on the bread. Not in the same ballpark as sam and andy's in my opinion. I second the opinion that varsity is crap though. Ive been there twice in the five years I've lived here and I dont plan on going back any time soon. Maybe I should open a steamed sandwich food truck, since those seem to be all the rave now.

Written on Knoxville Cuisine's Identity Crisis:

There is a food that I consider to a Knoxville favorite... the steamed sandwich! I have tried to find these now that I live in Atlanta and there isn't anything like what they have at Gus's or Sam & Andy's. When I tell people about it they think that I am lying or tell my to try firehouse subs, which isnt the same. Also, I consider Petro's to be a Knoxville food. I will walk from any corner of Neyland stadium that I am in (which can be a task with the small concorses) to get a Petro on gameday.

Written on Proposed South Knoxville Apartment Complex Sparks Community Opposition :

That design really is garbage. Look at all the space wasted on parking. Are there plans for a concealed parking garage?

Written on No Destination Attractions? Knoxville?:

Now that I have moved out of Knoxville I realize that many Knoxvillians don't realize how much the city has to offer. Living in Atlanta has made me learn how wonderful the access to the outdoors is in Knoxville, especially the water. I hope that the city makes having better access to the river from downtown a major priority going forward.

Written on How Others See Knoxville:

Amen. Living in Atlanta, I feel that most have no idea what Knoxville has to offer. At the same time, Asheville is full of transplants, which has changed their local culture significantly. I am not sure that I would enjoy the dilution of the Knoxville's great local culture.

Written on Drinking Games for Knoxvillians:

apologies. I definitely wasn't saying that you are sorry. I found the article funny because I don't live in Knoxville anymore and I find myself saying that people in Atlanta don't know how to play drinking games like the people in Knoxville.

Written on Drinking Games for Knoxvillians:

you're* sorry

Written on Drinking Games for Knoxvillians:

college kids (and high school kids) everywhere play drinking games... your just not in college anymore.
