the drinks of lincoln
The Drinks of Lincoln was a Daily Nebraskan series in which a panel of reviewers and I reviewed the original drinks of Lincoln’s downtown bars.

judging books by their covers
“This is good stuff. I mean, it’s absolutely worthless, but it’s also absolutely hilarious. Kudos to the DN for doing something so unabashedly idiotic.”
-Luke Harrington, by way of DN feedback
Judging Books by their Covers was a series in which I literally reviewed books based exclusively on their covers. I am forever in debt to Melanie Mensch, my editor at the time, for allowing me to do something this absurd in the pages of the Daily Nebraskan.
