Where I'm Writing From: Another Dimension

The wormhole only opens on Tuesday nights around eight o’clock. That’s when I call my writing mentor, former professor, and heartfriend, Johnny Wink. Johnny’s a strange duck. He wears funny shirts, drinks Rum Grizzlies, and shoots a lot of pool, sometimes under names like “The Anteater King” or “President William McKinley.” But, last time I checked, Johnny didn’t hold the keys to another dimension.

100 Things to Do in Knoxville Before You Die released

KNOXVILLE -- Nestled in the foothills of the Smoky Mountains, Knoxville maintains a small-town feel despite being Tennessee’s third largest city. And with some of the best views, brews, and venues in the Maker City, you’ll want to make the most of your stay. 100 Things to Do in Knoxville Before You Die offers visitors and locals alike a diverse checklist of adventures and insider knowledge to construct the perfect itinerary.

In this book, you’ll learn what to do and where to go from local tourism expert Kristen Combs sharing years of her favorite activities that will wow the whole family. Longtime residents and first-time visitors will equally enjoy this guide to Knoxville, a nature-loving-adventure-seeking-artsy-kinda-town.

The book includes topics such as:

• The Tennessee River is formed just east of downtown Knoxville from the French Broad and Holston Rivers meeting. Several places reference this from Three Rivers Market to Three Rivers Rambler. There’s all kinds of ways to explore these beautiful waterways, from a driving tour to cruising to up-close-and-personal paddling.

• Knoxville might be the only place in the world where you can enjoy a handcrafted beer in a handcrafted glass and watch the whole process from beginning to end. Find this unique experience at Pretentious Craft Co. More beer is easy to find, and just as easy to find the right brew for you along Knoxville’s Ale Trail by starting at Knox Brew Hub.

• The skyline of Knoxville would be incomplete without the iconic Sunsphere. Built for the 1982 World’s Fair, this structure has surprising siblings in Seattle’s Space Needle and Paris’s Eiffel Tower, which were also built for World’s Fairs (1962 and 1889, respectively). A visit to the 4th Floor Observation Deck allows a 360-degree view of it all, from the bustling downtown to the beautiful Smoky Mountains.
