The Urban Divide

Popular Riverside coffee shop and cafe being uprooted If you’re tapped into Riverside happenings, you’ve probably come across Instagram posts regarding Southern Roots and their probable relocation.

Dirty Talk

A swig of something saccharine Though Shirley Temple denied having anything to do with kid-friendly drink bearing her name (she actually hated the “saccharine sweet, icky drink”), the sparkling, red mocktail has been delighting little ones since the 1930s. Since then, the childhood favorite has been tainted with a helping of vodka and dubbed the Dirty Shirley. A recent New York Times piece dubbed the Dirty Shirley “the drink of the summer,” only for The New Yorker to bash it in their 100 tips for restaurants stating “no one over the age of 22 should be ordering one.” Shame on …

Street Wieners

The almighty Hot Dog, Frankfurter, Banger, Glizzy, Tube Steak, Coney, Weenie, Frank or what we like to call locally “Wiener” is one of America’s most cherished foods.  Consisting of grilled, steamed or baked sausage usually, it’s served in the slit of a sliced bun and topped with condiments that make it ever so tasty.  Technically known as a sandwich of sorts, although the National Hot Dog Council has declared that a dog is not a sandwich, Merriam Webster on the other hand states it is indeed a sandwich.  All we know is that they are delicious no matter what they …

Voo Swar, Where Past Meets Present

Located down a quiet street in Mayport is a bar that prides itself on being a building block for the community through generations. Voo Swar Restaurant and Lounge has been open since 1963; a time where segregation was still running rampant not only in the streets of Atlantic Beach and Mayport, but everywhere in the United States. So, it became a place where African Americans could gather without facing judgment and rejection. Late owner Earnest Davis began building Voo Swar around 1961, but it took a decade building the place by hand to get the space operational. He gathered necessities …

Shaping Local

These photos may be black and white, but finding your next magic surfboard is not. There are more surfers today than ever before, but the distance between surfers’ hands and  boardmakers has only increased with the influx. Surf industry tycoons used this boom as an opportunity to exploit and taint the supply chain. The result? Lineups everywhere are littered with low quality boards produced abroad in factories by non-surfer labor. It’s a shame seeing these absolute turds floating in the water next to boards masterfully crafted by local shapers, whose jobs are put in jeopardy due to uneducated buyers and …
