I thought I’d better do a “Places to Go” article before people start thinking I’m some kind of shut-in. I’m not really into the downtown scene, nor am I that much of a food nut to comment accurately on the quality of my favorite restaurants. Concerning food, if my head doesn’t hit my plate with a thud from poisoning, and it has nothing to do with cooked vegetables, chances are I’m giving it a solid A. There’s a few bars I like going to, but I usually end up leaving in such a disheveled state that I can’t remember exactly just how great or shitty the service was, the type of lighting used, or the exact number of beer taps there were. This brought on a bit of a dilemma, until I had an epiphany in the shower one night which prompted me to write an article about something I can definitely and accurately critique: Tattoo parlors.

So, a couple people did get arrested. The Heirloom will be reopening in early July, but they won’t be able to sell beer.

What’s just as good as reading a library book for free?
Buying a new book for two dollars and not having to return it.
But where can you get new or almost-new books for just two bucks? The Friends Book Shop at the Ferguson Library! There are two locations: one at the Ferguson’s Main Branch (at the corner of Broad and Bedford Streets) and the other at the Harry Bennett Branch (115 Vine Road). Each shop has its charms; there’s a large selection of teen lit at Harry Bennett, and an attached Starbucks at the downtown store. Those venti iced lattes cost more than most of the books!
