Experiencing all that Weird Asheville has to offer for a birthday road trip, from great food at our favorite Zambra to great beer at local breweries and great baseball.

Up Close at Rebel Kitchen


We had the best seat in the house for an experience to remember at Rebel Kitchen in Old City Knoxville. Mushroom “bolognese” was only one of the great dishes on the menu.

Sticky Rice Cafe


Come for the Lao sausage and unique take on Laotian food. Stay for the modern Phorrito and Lao sandwich. Either way you can’t go wrong as this family run joint in West Knoxville.

Kefi Old City Knoxville


There’s grilled cheese. And then there is GRILLED CHEESE. We experienced the greatness that is halloumi, and much more, at Kefi in Knoxville.

We ventured to Sunspot off of Cumberland Avenue on a rainy afternoon and weren’t disappointed by its creative take on some old classics.

A Dopo Pizza, Now and Later


The menu at A Dopo Sourdough Pizza doesn’t let you forget that it doesn’t mean “goodbye.” It means “see you later.” And we will!

Brilliant Italian at Emilia


Emilia might be as close to Northern Italy you’ll find while living in a land-locked state. Lobster pasta, pork blade steak, and artichoke hush puppies? Allora!

Cooking at The Cutting Edge


Cooking Thai street food turned out to be a memorable date night during an outing at The Cutting Edge Classroom in West Knoxville. We made sweet and spicy wings, but ate MUCH more.

Tako Taco Old City Knoxville


The tacos at Tako Taco were amazing, and so was the fried chicken skin nachos. Yup, we said FRIED CHICKEN SKIN NACHOS.

“Steak,” “cheese,” and “bacon”? An experimental vegan Valentine’s Day at OliBea was as amazing and tasty as it was romantic!

Food Network star Tim Love’s Western-style restaurant in Old City Knoxville is best known for its steaks, but we enjoyed its chicken, pork and tequila!
