    Gainesville’s Asian Sensations

    Although the average hungover UF student might consider a Bento box an authentic Asian feast, here at GainesvilleScene, we want to expand culinary horizons. We recognize “Asian food” ...

    Lessons from a Seasoned Black Friday Shopper

    As some of us prepare to embrace the time-honored tradition of distorted historical perspectives about Native Americans, family dysfunction and turkey, all rolled into one day, others are gearing up for the madness that is Black Friday. The enthusiasm and competitive nature Black Friday exposes in people rivals the spirit of teenage girls at a One Direction concert. The ever-present dichotomy of ...

    Asshole and Hero of the Week

    Although we love to view the world in absolutes, things are seldom black and white. Heroes have skeletons in their closets and assholes secretly donate money to the ASPCA commercials with Sarah McLachlan. Okay, maybe not. But the point is that the world is a complex place, full of moral ambiguity, double standards and mixed feelings. So we have taken it upon ourselves ...

    It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year

    As we hang up our fake, blood-stained, slutty Hans Solo costumes until next year and buy Tums in preparation for Thanksgiving, a new aura fills the air around us as we tire of rotting pumpkins, spooky decorations and gravy. Our Pumpkin Spice Lattes slowly turn into White Peppermint Mochas. The back of Target is cleared of all costumes and filled with synthetic ...

    What Happens When You Eat Ramen for a Week

    Sometimes as a college student, you just need to sit back, break through the barriers of denial and contemplate just how hilariously broke you are. When it comes to me, however, it’s more a case of fucked up priorities than anything else. Nerdy entertainment before food. Always. Eating healthy is relatively expensive, but eating crap? That’s cheap as hell. Ultimately you can ...

    False Sense of Security

    The shooting at FSU is nothing short of a tragedy. Outside of the victims’ injuries, the real lasting tragedy is the sense of safety that FSU students lost after hearing the news that the library, a place meant to be a safe, quiet building to focus on work away from the noise of life, was the site of a shooting. When a ...

    On “Hatred,” The Self-Explanatory Video Game

    The violent video game debate is not new to anyone. Every time a new “GTA” or “Call of Duty” comes out, all kinds of concerned mom groups feel the need to spew their comments of “violence begets violence” on all forms of media. On Oct. 16, a trailer for a new video game hit the Internet, and in the words of the ...

    Culture Your Fu**ing Self

    There are two approaches to spending your time in this complex enigma of a town called Gainesville. You can complain that “there’s nothing to do” and drown your sorrows in a sub-par 3-4-1 Long Island at Cantina every night or you can embrace your precious time here in Hogtown and go explore. We’ve helped you survive your road trips and spring break, ...

    Behind the Scene: Daniel from Arrow’s Aim Records

Behind the Scene, our new series, gives you a glimpse into the ...

    On Being Polite To Women

    Tipsy and tired, I walked onto a bus with no open seats. My heart sank. But then a man gave up his seat for me, waving for me to take his place. I was incredibly grateful in my not-so-sober state that this had occurred, and I took the seat happily and overheard the man’s wife telling their children that their dad had given ...

    Your Weekend Dirty Dozen

    Alas, Thanksgiving is a week away. This means stretch pants, stuffing your face, awkward encounters with relatives and getting incredibly wine drunk with your mom for three days straight. Let these tunes help you cruise through the weekend and help you stay sane on the drive back to your hometown. Hey, maybe even throw it on at the family gathering and watch grandpa ...

    We Are Who We Are

    “Describe yourself in three words.” Chances are you’ve been asked to do this by professionals several times. For as many ways as I can argue for whichever three words I choose — usually “intelligent, energetic and ethical” — I can just as easily argue against them. Although I guarantee that’ll be the most memorable thing your interviewer experiences all week, try to resist the ...

    Rivalries Aside, Seminole Nation Unites

    This is a guest post by TallahasseeScene’s Chaise Bishop. Everything about me screams UGA. I park my car on Florida State’s campus with a Georgia front tag.

    Pop of the Week: Pumpkin Pie

    Pumpkin Pie Imagine opening your fridge the day after the year’s biggest feast and finding the last piece of pumpkin pie waiting there for you. The Hyppo’s Pumpkin Pie popsicle is that last glorious piece of pie. Its creamy consistency and hints of cinnamon take you to a place filled with family, thanks and overeating. Despite the chilly weather, it’ll warm your ...

    Scene and Heard: The Savants of Soul

    Background The Savants of Soul are a genre-melding energetic soul band intricately peppered with the zest of funk, the spice of modern R&B and the gentle smoothness of classic Motown styles. “We’re based off of 1950s, 1960s and 1970s soul music so we kind of use the whole Sam Cooke, Ray Charles, Motown, The Supremes, those kind of troupes, and we kind ...
