Green and Gold

My first college football game was one for the ages.   By Hannah Wallace   The running of the bulls.   Clairvoyance or dumb luck, CCB (aka Cheetah Club Boyfriend) has been craving college football since springtime and purchased tickets months ago to the USF home game he felt would host the biggest, most exciting […]

Playing Dirty

I’m getting a little tired of guys talking trash when they play hockey against women—and lose.   By Hannah Wallace     The mother of one of my teammates recently ran into a guy at work who mentioned playing hockey. “My daughter plays hockey in Ellenton,” said Dallas’s mom. “She’s on the Ms. Conduct.”   […]

Shock Therapy

Of local law enforcement and the UF taser incident.   By Hannah Wallace   I’ve been putting together a massive story about drinking and driving (be sure to look for it in our November issue), and I was planning on writing a blog highlighting some of the experiences I had while researching DUIs that didn’t […]

UnParty Like a Rock Star

Hanging with the beautiful people at the kick-off party for Ungala.   By Hannah Wallace   My hockey leagues are getting into high gear this time of year, so you know what that means: Hannah has no money.   This is the time of year when mooching is a must.   So Paul Mattison’s invite […]

Paul Mattison to the Rescue

The Sarasota super-chef takes un-pity on me.   By Hannah Wallace   My typical afternoon doldrums took a decidedly untypical turn last Wednesday. A little after 5, when I was ready to give up on the day entirely, I got a call from Jennifer Ahearn-Koch, publicist for restaurateur extraordinaire (and one-time Sarasota bachelor of the millennium) […]

Midsummer Days and Nights

Even in  this heat, there are things to savor in summer.   By Hannah Wallace   Humidity is such a part of Florida living, especially in the summertime, that breaking a sweat between the front door and the car at 8:30 a.m. is the way you expect to start the day. But earlier this week […]

Fit for a Queen

Stop me if you’ve heard this: A valedictorian, a vegetarian and Cheetah Club Boyfriend walk into Drag Queen Bingo…   By Hannah Wallace   Here in the editorial office it’s been a mad dash to be the first to publish something about Canvas Café’s Drag Queen Bingo.   I win.   I mean, yeah, the […]

Happy Birthday to Me

What did I do with my 28th year?   I celebrated my 28th birthday last Wednesday, which naturally leads to a little neurotic retrospective of the last 365 days.

Uninvited

    It’s the museum’s party, and I’ll cry if I want to. At home, of course.       By Hannah Wallace       For a few short hours, I thought I had scored a deal to the swankiest event in town.   Then my dreams were dashed. By a typo.   Within […]

Round Trip

    I return from vacation with a refreshed state of mind—and a bag of pasta labeled “Space Noodles.”   When I summarized my recent trip to the Pacific Northwest, a number of Sarasotans gave me the same deadpan response:   “My vacation was fantastic. We didn’t get any rain.” “Yeah, we didn’t, either.”   […]
