Date Night To Go: Enjoy Some of CoMo’s Best at Home

Photos by L.G. Patterson Every once in a while, it’s nice to get all dressed up and go out on the town. But that’s not always the best route for a date night. Sometimes it’s hard to find a babysitter. Maybe public health concerns have got you wanting to stay home. Or you simply don’t […]

Pink Prevails for Spring Style

Styled by Madelyn Jones – Photos by L.G. Patterson When it comes to spring fashions this year, think pink! Whether it’s rose, bubblegum, blush or some other variant of the feminine favorite, pink is coloring many of this season’s separates, from crop tops to darling dresses. Ruffles are another big trend — especially for cap sleeves […]

Hanging the Stockings with Personality

Photo by L.G. Patterson   The holidays are filled with so many wonderful traditions, but there’s something special about hanging that Christmas stocking.

Focusing on The Future

In September, the Columbia College Board of Trustees named Dr. David Russell the college’s 18th president.

Educator Ensembles

Ah, back to school. It conjures images of hours spent trying on what seems to be the same pair of ripped jeans or graphic t-shirts for hours in dressing rooms, hurried notebook and pencil shopping through packed aisles at Walmart and rustling through cabinets for (slightly musty) lunchboxes.

Dueling DJs: Baseball Battle

Each issue, two on-air talents from two different Zimmer Radio Group stations will voice their opinions on what you might call a controversial topic. This issue, check out Lauren’s and Aric’s takes on the best baseball team in Missouri.

Jaunty Jammies

A Columbia family continues a toasty tradition. While you may think it took some convincing for us to get Battle High School Head Football Coach — and former Mizzou Defensive End — Atiyyah Ellison to model holiday jammies for us, rest assured there was no bribery, blackmail or bartering involved. Ellison and his wife Jessica, […]

Dueling DJs

When it comes to a traditional buffalo style wing there is no other option in Missouri than CJ’s hot wings in downtown Columbia. If you don’t think they have the best wings in CoMo than one has never touched your lips. Once you’ve had CJ’s, no other wings will do. Each wing is lathered in […]

Shop Online and Still Shop Local

It may seem counterintuitive to promote online shopping, but if done through local stores, the benefits are the same as going into storefronts, (although it may be a little easier to click rather than walk away from that sweater you don’t really *need*). 

Best of Columbia

It’s time for our annual Best of Columbia awards — and this year we shook things up a little. Our editors took out much of the groundwork for our readers by picking nominees for the reader-voted awards, and then you, our readers, turned in more than 12,000 votes on who you think the best in […]

Back in Business

The last few months have shaken the business community to its foundation. While many are reeling from the instability in our local economy, it’s imperative that we find the opportunities in the shake-up. They’re there… if you look for them. Every change, while difficult, brings with it a chance to return smarter, stronger and better […]

In materials from luxe leather to sturdy straw, you’ll find a collage of colors, plus distinctive details including a trend toward tassels. So, whether you favor a slim style […]
