The packed night – Batman sells out

Almost anywhere you looked, you were going to see the same signs: “The Dark Knight – sold out.” The Movie Tavern was no different, tickets were gone hours before the show. But what was different than most theaters was the staff greeting you. Upon walking into the Movie Tavern you may have found the Catwoman leaning on the bar, Batman punching in food orders or the Joker could have greeted you and immediately asked if you had seen “his friend, Harvey Dent.”

This flight did not serve beverages or offer a lavatory. Two aviation campers take to the sky with pilot Jeremy Growdon after training on flight simulators and learning the basics of aviation. April Cook, 15, said this would be her eighth time flying, and she was only excited and not nervous at all. Nicole Jordan, 16, was piloting for her second time and was a little worried with the weather. Video by Brad Luttrell | Staff

Beer has about 2,000 flavor compounds and can possess tastes and aromas that run the gamut from green apple to skunk. Seven judges gathered at Kentucky Ale to decide on the home brewer’s who combined just the right combination of the tasty flavors, not so many of the skunk-like ones and a dominant appearance as well.
