Where Dope Sandos and Hungry Randos Assemble to Feast: Lone Wolf Co.

Where Dope Sandos and Hungry Randos Assemble to Feast: Lone Wolf Co. Words by Su Ertekin-Taner I half expect a member of KISS or one of those Harley-Davidson bikers that travel in herds to enter behind me when I walk into punk-inspired sandwich shop Lone Wolf Co. The edgy decorations that adorn the walls of the venue suggest as much. The Punk’s Not Dead flag, wolf’s skull mural, coffin-shaped Little Red Riding Hood-esque mural, and three-eyed wolf logo are all artistic nods to the type of counterculture that KISS and Harley-Davidson represent. And as punk music reverberates throughout the restaurant, …

1904 Music Hall: The Day the Music Died

1904 Music Hall: The Day the Music Died Words by Amiyah Golden   The essence of artistry resides in various nooks and crannies around the city. With spaces like 1904 being a pillar of support in the ever-growing Jacksonville music scene and beyond for the last decade, the time has come for the business to transition into a new chapter. With owners making the call to focus their time and energy into their sister business, Underbelly, we commemorate the impact this establishment has had on music and the community.   Three friends purchased a building at 19 Ocean Street Downtown …

Dining With The Fish Company

Dining With The Fish Company   Today, I take a trip to a childhood treasure. Other children took periodic trips to Disney or a local water park on weekends. I trekked to Atlantic Beach seafood joint The Fish Company. I remember the smaller, but equally hungry version of myself that rolled in with my family every weekend, sometimes with relatives from out of town hoping to get acquainted with the city. That I’ve found my way back to a youth memory is no surprise. I’ve been waiting on the tastes of childhood all college year long.   I open a …
