Rock City Kicks! 

ROCK CITY KICKS OPENING
4 p.m., Rock City Kicks. Free (with shoes to buy).

Sneaker fiends of all stripes, your prayers are answered. No more bribing your big-city friends into trips to the store and the post office. No more chancing the pitfalls of online shopping. On Thursday, in conjunction with Hillcrest's monthly Shop-n-Sip, Rock City Kicks celebrates its grand opening. Located at 623 Beechwood, next door to Hillcrest Junk and across from Kroger, the store will service a discerning sneaker clientele, folks who want more than the run of the mill selection the chain footwear stores offer. Think sneaker boutique. Proprietor Cory Bacon, who out-on-the-towners will recognize as the shred-tastic lead guitarist for Smoke Up Johnny, says he hopes to cater to a broad audience, one that includes, but isn't limited to, the urban world, skaters, vegans and his parents. He's carrying shoes from brands like Nike, Adidas Original, Puma, Asics, Onitsaka, Castle and Tiddies (a brand of sandal he says his parents wore in the '70s), as well as several apparel lines. In the beginning, Bacon plans on staying open seven days a week, from around 11 a.m. or noon till 7 p.m. or 8 p.m. The opening night party will likely stretch into the night a little while.

  • Fake news

    So fed up was young Edgar Welch of Salisbury, N.C., that Hillary Clinton was getting away with running a child-sex ring that he grabbed a couple of guns last Sunday, drove 360 miles to the Comet Ping Pong pizzeria in Washington, D.C., where Clinton was supposed to be holding the kids as sex slaves, and fired his AR-15 into the floor to clear the joint of pizza cravers and conduct his own investigation of the pedophilia syndicate of the former first lady, U.S. senator and secretary of state.
  • Reality TV prez

    There is almost nothing real about "reality TV." All but the dullest viewers understand that the dramatic twists and turns on shows like "The Bachelor" or "Celebrity Apprentice" are scripted in advance. More or less like professional wrestling, Donald Trump's previous claim to fame.
