Jackalope Brewing

From sexist beer commercials to male-dominated brewing companies, the beer world has been a man’s world for a long, long time. Two people who are working to change that are Bailey Spaulding and Robyn Virball, founders of Nashville’s Jackalope Brewing Company. Spaulding is Jackalope’s CEO and brewmaster, while Virball is the company president. The two became friends while studying at St. Andrews in Scotland in 2002, toiled in different fields for about a decade (Spaulding actually passed the bar before deciding to to pursue work in a different kind of bar), and opened the craft brewery in 2011.  Keep reading »

The arrest of five players on the Vanderbilt football team this summer regarding an alleged gang rape shocked Nashville and college football fans across the nation. The five young men allegedly sexually assaulted an unconscious 21-year-old female student inside a Nashville campus dorm last June. Now, a new BuzzFeed article sheds more light about the alleged incident. To say the details are troubling is to put it mildly: the victim had been out partying on the night of the incident with one of the guys, who then allegedly took her back to his dorm while she was unconscious, where he and his teammates sexually violated her and filmed it.

My boyfriend Nick and I have lived in Tennessee for almost two months now. After spending most of our lives in the Pacific Northwest, we are total newbies to the South, so while we are by no means experts on Southern culture, we also don’t take any part of it for granted. From big hair to sweet tea, we are drinking it all in. There are a few aspects of Southern life that I’m not a big fan of (the wasps here are the size of birds), but for the most part, I already feel like Southern living is the only way to live. Here are 10 reasons why… Keep reading »

7 TV Shows That Have Seriously Sexy Sex

With TV getting raunchier and more graphic every year, are you satisfied with the sex on your screen? The New York Times says that the sex on TV isn’t sexy anymore. We disagree. The Joylessness of Sex on TV discusses shows like “Homeland,” “The Americans,” and “House of Cards,” where sex is used as a ploy for personal gain instead of pleasure. It’s a valid point, but it doesn’t cover that broad of a spectrum. There are plenty of other shows out there doing sex in innovative and, well, sexy ways. Look at “Girls,” where the sex is pure awkwardness, and “Arrested Development,” where the sex is openly comical.

But what are we doing naming shows where the sex isn’t sexy? That’s just silly. You came here to find the best sex on television. These are the shows that are doing sex right. A collection of the shows with the hottest, steamiest, most salacious scenes that won’t inspire any critical analyses in newspapers. Keep reading »

Nashville Skyline

Up until last month, my boyfriend Nick and I had lived in Oregon all of our lives. We both grew up in small towns outside of Portland, and then, after high school, we migrated into the city like people from small towns tend to do. For the past few years, Nick worked at the cheese counter of an upscale Portland grocery store. Like most things in our lives, his job was fine, but it wasn’t spectacular. We felt stagnant in many ways, like we were passively living a life that had been set out for us, rather than choosing the life we wanted. Looking back, we lived in Portland not because we wanted to, but because we always had.

weekend trip to Nashville changed everything. Within hours of landing in the city, we knew we wanted to move there. After feeling anchored in place for so long, the prospect of picking up and moving made us feel practically weightless, not to mention giddy with excitement. We couldn’t wait to start a new life. But first came the responsible plan. Keep reading »
