Month: July 2015

Humbly Hip in the “Hub City”

Confession: I could spend hours (and probably my whole paycheck) at Chrome, so when I found out I’d be blogging about it this month, I was practically giddy. (It’s a beautiful thing when work and passion collide). Last month I wrote about my inherited shopping spree prowess, and in Lubbock there is no better place to

Freshman Year 101

We love our interns! They’re hip, they’re smart and there is nobody else in our office that remembers what it was like to be a freshman more than them. Today they’re leading the lesson plan on how to freshman. Here are their top 10 tips they wish they had been told before they began freshmen year.

Fly into Hub City Comic Con

“We got guys who jump. We got guys who swing. We got guys who climb up walls.” It takes nothing short of The Tesseract or T.A.R.D.I.S to get to San Diego or New York, but now all you need is your own two feet to get the Comic Con experience. If you haven’t already, go ahead and

The BBQ Round Up

Between that final bell signaling the start of summer to the donning of new school year gear, my family tried to take a vacation as often as possible. Some of my most vivid experiences (and subsequently the inspiration for this series of posts) are the culinary ones. My mother insisted on eating where the locals

Things to Do This Week

You hit the snooze button a few too many times, you almost wore two completely different shoes on your feet and you can’t find your keys. That can only mean one thing: it’s Monday! Don’t you wish the weekend could last just a little bit longer? We have a few ideas to really “rev up”

Lubbock Moonlight Musicals presents “1776”

Earlier this week, we blogged about keeping the spirit of July 4th alive all summer long, but if you’re tired of burgers and hot dogs, Lubbock Moonlight Musicals can help you sing a different (but still as patriotic) tune. Fresh off the heels of their successful show, “Shrek: The Musical” their next show, “1776,” opens today and

10 Most “Insta-Worthy” Lubbock Locations

If Instagram has taught us anything it’s with the right angle and an expertly chosen filter, anything can become post-worthy. Cool architecture, your friend’s pet, another friend’s coffee, a well-plated meal, a neon sign – all make frequent appearances on our feeds. But the simple fact remains that some things are more Insta-worthy than others.

Eat. Drink. Experience.

Did you know that July is National Anti-Boredom Month? We’re not sure who decides these things, but perhaps July is aptly designated as most of us tend to hit a mid-summer lull in between Independence Day and the first day of school. One of the best things about being in the “Hub City” is if

Live Love Lubbock — Wine

No matter how good an interview, many great answers end up on the chopping block when editing down our Live Love Lubbock videos. We gathered some of our favorite vino-lovers to release never-before-seen footage and highlight one thing: Lubbock wines. Pop open a bottle or two with our cast and Live Love Lubbock. Click here to learn more about Lubbock wines. More

Celebrate the Spirit of July Fourth All Summer Long

Friends, family, fireworks, and of course, our best red, white and blue are essential when it comes to celebrating the Fourth of July. Independence Day is one of the most anticipated holidays, and just because the firecrackers have all been popped and the hot dogs have been eaten doesn’t mean the celebration should stop! We came
