When Worlds Converge: Mississippi Street Fair

The Mississippi Street Fair is the everyday culture clash of North Mississippi on acid. Any other day of the year, you can pick your way through blocks of fastidious gentrification bearing down on the few original local fixtures that remain, in the company of everyone from ...   More

Let Them Eat Cupcakes

Being a grown-up sucks. Every year after the age of thirteen is a depressing downward spiral into responsibilities, body image issues, and shoes with laces instead of Velcro. Plummeting further away from the joys of childhood to perish in a khaki-colored, cubicle-shaped abyss, some lose hope and give in. But no...   More

Vegan BBQ: Savor the Blasphemy of Smoked Soy Curls

You Get A Line and I’ll Get A Pole, Honey: It's a Crawfish Boil at EaT

The primal savagery of sucking the meat of your prey right out of its exoskeleton invokes the burly vigor upon which this country was built – thus the All-American appeal of the Louisianan crawfish boil.

Richard Day-Reynolds was born to barbecue. The Tennessee native bellies up to his carbon-black Traeger grill as though he entered the world with basting brush in hand, destined to slow-cook beef and pork into tender, juicy submission. Barbecue is just as much a part of him as he is a part of it&mdas   More
