The Downtown Week Ahead (July 7 – July 13, 2013)

If you see an event I’ve missed and you’d like to plug, please comment below or e-mail me ( and I’ll try to add it. The list may, accordingly, be expanded through the week. Staying true to the scope of the blog, I’ll only list downtown or near-downtown events. The Well and The Shed have some great events, for example, but I have to draw a line somewhere. If you want to add those in a comment, that’s fine.

Let me encourage you to “friend” me on Facebook and invite me to your events. That’s my best source for great things to do. While you are at it, look over to the right of this post and not only “friend” me, but “like” Stuck Inside of Knoxville.” You can also subscribe (to the right) to make sure you catch all the posts.
