Written on 'Gateway to the Smokies' No More: Knoxville is Fast Earning a National Reputation as a Recreation Destination in Itself:

Branding is essential! While football is great, Knoxville's tourism revenue has relied solely upon game attendance for too long. There is a lot of potential with the outdoor adventure travel. If I were on the Chamber of Commerce/Visit Knoxville/Department of Tourist Development, I would play up the outdoorsy venues by day, and Knoxville's dining/cultural/entertainment options for evening. Maybe somebody should open a spa downtown that specializes in evening hours for all those tired adventurers.

Written on Open Letter: Knoxville, About That Dave Chappelle Show...:

Thank you for saying what I wanted to say in a much more polite and articulate fashion. Hot Dog Guy, I hate you, as well as the idiots that got bounced for interrupting the show to try to get their own picture with Dave. Seriously???

I was so excited after reading this review from the Nashville Scene, where things apparently went much better. You'll notice that there is no mention of using the crowd as props for his jokes. That was not part of the show.

After investing money and effort to get tickets and arrange for a babysitter for a rare night out, I was sadly disappointed in this show. Next time I'll make a point to see it in a town that knows how to behave.
