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.

  • Lincolnites assess the drinks of downtown (Iguana’s)
  • Taste testing Elk Creek water at Sandy’s
  • Duffy’s Fishbowl feeds the frenzied crowd
  • Cliff’s Kamikazes put the alcohol back into Lincoln drinks
  • The Daily Nebraskan downtown drink testing comes to a close
  • Bonus!

  • Letter to the Editor
  • Response to that letter by Erica Rogers
  • 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.

    The Bearded Odyssey was a journey and Daily Nebraskan series in which I traveled around the United States in an attempt to have adventures and grow a beard. Much thanks to Derek Lippincott for actually paying me to do this.
