A Night on the Town with @moderninkmag

This past Saturday, I attended a launch party for the second issue of Modern Ink Magazine, a fabulous new digital mag whose founders happen to call my my sweet southern city home. The magazine is published quarterly and both the premiere issue and the most recent one have been a real feast for the eyes.

The party was held at the Public House, a cheeky little establishment on the edge of Knoxville’s ‘Old City.’ The menu includes more than your typical bar fare, and we especially enjoyed the popcorn in truffle oil and the charcuterie board with offerings from the famous Benton’s Hams.



I was excited to meet the lovely founders, Rachel Wood Turner (left, and also pictured below at right with her fabulous sis-in-law Claire Balest, who contributes as the magazine’s beauty editor) and Allison Sprouse (right).



The ladies were so gracious to invite the public out for this fun event and my southern beau and I enjoyed it very much. We had another special connection with this particular issue of the magazine because a quote of mine about my sweetie was published in it. {pg. 143 of the Fall issue if you’re curious}

Other gorgeousness from the issue includes sneak peeks into the homes of some very creative folks and a photo shoot of Nebraska that left me longing to visit the Cornhusker state.
