8. MOVIES: “Based on the incredible true story of Jesse Owens, the legendary athletic superstar whose quest to become the greatest track and field athlete in history thrusts him onto the world stage of the 1936 Olympics, where he faces off against Adolf Hitler’s vision of Aryan supremacy. “Race” is an enthralling film about courage, determination, tolerance, and friendship, and an inspiring drama about one man’s fight to become an Olympic legend.” Rated PG-13 NOW PLAYING

9. FOOD: Try Chattanooga’s ‘Tupelo Honey’ restaurant “for creative, scratch-made, Southern food and spirits in our restaurant and and on our extensive patio.” Might I add, Vince Vaughn visited our Tupelo Honey location recently because it is that delicious!
