The Knoxville Opera will be performing Puccini’s La Boheme on February 10 and 12. If you’d like to see it at a really deep discount, consider attending the student dress rehearsal TONIGHT (Wednesday, February 8 at 6:30 p.m.) This full dress rehearsal is exactly the same as the regular performance (the show runs without stopping with full costumes/set) and is FREE for students and just $5 for accompanying adults (cash only, MUST be accompanying a student). You’ll enter the Tennessee Theatre through the Gay Street entrance beginning at 5:30 p.m. For more info on the student dress rehearsal, go here.

McAlister’s Deli in Alcoa is celebrating the grand re-opening of its restaurant today! (Friday, Jan. 20.) The first 25 guests in line will receive a McAlister’s Tumbler and holiday Tea Glass Sweater. The restaurant will officially open at 10:15 a.m., I believe, although there will probably be a line out front. Here’s a photo of the tea sweater:
The nice thing about McAlister’s tumblers is that when you bring it with you to eat you can fill it with tea for just $0.99!

If you have the Chick-fil-a One app, log in now to get a FREE copy of the audiobook of “A Christmas Carol” added to your Audible account! Tim Curry reads this version, and he seems like a perfect narrator for one of my favorite stories!
