Really? I said. Now, wouldn’t it be fun to stay downtown? You could work at the sale, I could shop for crafty things that the artists bring, and we could walk back “home” at night!
Hey, you find us a place, he said, and we’ll do it.
So I did.
And here we are. A cool loft apartment in the 100 block of Gay Street smack dab in the middle of all things artsy with restaurants we wanna try, coffee shops, furniture, funky apparel, books, touristy stuff and sidewalks pointing us to other city places. Livin’ the dream, I guess. An opportunity to see how our urban dweller friends live and see if we suburbanites can get used to city noises and tiny, but efficient, spaces.
Knoxville’s been our home since ’63 when we both entered UT as freshmen, but we’ve never been this up close and personal with downtown !
So, here’s our chance. Come along with us. We’ll show you what we see . . . and eat and buy and do.
In our very own hometown. . . downtown!
