Weekend in Knoxville - Part 1

We spent the weekend in Knoxville, Tennessee for the Tennessee/UAB game. Rob and I went up Thursday night so we could do a little "sightseeing" around the UT campus on Friday.

While out and about Rob and I ate lunch at Cilantro's Grill on the strip. We met the owner who was from Birmingham, and then the Budweiser delivery man came in and he was from Bessemer. Everyone we met while in Knoxville was originally from Birmingham. Just some irony!
The UT campus is a pretty campus and I love that the river runs right through that area. I also think it is so neat that people drive their boats into the city and "tailgate" on the river. There will be TONS of boats just lined up and down the river on gameday. I'm not sure why I didn't take any pics of that.
Friday afternoon, my parents came up and we ate dinner at Calhoun's, overlooking the river. So pretty! Again, don't know why I didn't take any pictures! :(
