Butter My Biscuit, Lady Antebellum’s A’Comin’!

Now, y’all mighta heard some folk talkin’ that Lady Antebellum was scheduled to stop in State College while on their Own The Night 2012 World Tour. Well, partner, ya better saddle up, cause it ain’t nothin’ but the truth!

WHEN: February 4

WHAT TIME: 7:00 pm

WHERE: The Bryce Jordan Center

Now, I can tell you’re wonderin’: how do I get my hands on a couple of tickets for the big hoedown? Well, it’s as easy as sliding off a greasy log backward!

WHEN DO TICKETS GO ON SALE: UPAC student presale begins Thursday, November 3 at Noon.

WHERE CAN I BUY A TICKET: BJC, Eisenhower, and Penn State Theatre Downtown.

TICKET PRICE: Student prices: $25.00, $34.50, or $44.50 (unspecified limited quantity). After the allotted student tickets have been purchased, tickets will be sold at regular price (add $15 to each)

Tickets will be open to the public on Friday, November 4, starting at 10 am. They will cost $35.00, $49.50, or $59.50, and can be purchased at the BJC, Eisenhower, Penn State Downtown Theatre, online at,, all Ticketmaster outlets, or charge at 814-865-5555.The show will also feature Darius Rucker and special guest Thompson Square.  

For some, this group is as welcome as an outhouse breeze. However, as a native of the country-proud county of Lebanon, this show just dills my pickle. No, I don’t enjoy country music, but I do love the attitude that comes along with it. I can only hope that attendants will properly prepare for this event by piling them and all of their cousins into the back of their pick-up, grillin’ up some freshly caught ‘coon, and crushin’ a couple cases of Keystone Light, just like they do at the Sheetz back at home.

I know I am asking for a lot, but even a blind hog finds an acorn now and again!

Jim’s Army & Navy: The Greatest Store Ever

For those of you who have ventured onto the west side of Beaver Avenue, there is a good chance you have passed by Jim’s Army & Navy. If you are one of those people, your first thought when passing by Jim’s was most likely, “What the hell is going on in this store?” When a store’s window display boasts handcuffs (they even come in pink), switchblades, throwing stars, machetes, other swords, and ammunition, you really have no choice but to be utterly confounded. Little did I know that I was about to walk into the greatest store ever.
