  • You’ll Love The Revamped “Beauty and The Beast”
    8:50 AM

    We all may know this Disney classic as a “tale as old as time,” but that tale hasn’t stayed so old. Recently, Beauty and the Beast was remade into a live-action motion picture, meaning the audience will be watching real people instead of cartoons. It seems to be slowly happening to all the classic Disney movies,

  • Don’t Miss Out On The Movie Everyone’s Talking About: Get Out
    10:30 AM

    Unsettling, challenging, suspenseful…there are roughly another thousand words that can be used to describe Jordan Peele’s Get Out, but among them all, one stands out: risky. Arguably one of the first honest movies to appear on the screen for quite some time, Get Out focuses on an interracial couple and the notion of being an outsider (in this case, being black)

  • A Streetcar Named Desire: More Than A “High School” Production
    9:38 AM

    Immediately after being greeted at the door of the Black Box Theatre, the vibe of 1940’s New Orleans flooded the room. The sizable set extended throughout the entire theatre from wall to wall, including the upper balcony portion. Once seated, characters began to walk around the theatre, creating little scenes of their own. Whether it was

  • Kiko’s: A Taste of Bosnia
    9:25 AM

    Hidden in a corner downtown on the 5700 block, Kiko’s Restauraunt is a diamond in the rough. They have everything from cevapi (little sausage links) straight from the grill to palacinke (sweet crepes) for dessert. This restaurant puts a nice modern twist on traditional Bosnian dishes. Along with the amazing food, there is never a
