Didnt want to offend anyone. But fuck it. I didnt want to sound arrogant but i do so im sorry for that. But i want people to understand my passion & the reason why im doing what im doing. Smiles & Happiness for others, whether its laughing at me or with me.

Happy Garden is reasonably priced consistently good option for Americanized Chinese food. Buffet is tiny so order an entree instead.

Went to Carousel 2 because I had checked the place out while flyering for comedy shows a few times and was interested to see what the place looked like inside. The place is much bigger then I expected it to be. It also has a great history that you can quickly learn about from asking the regulars or the staffers. It is a gay bar but the night I went it had a good mix of people. I ordered a Shot of vodka and a red bull and they poured me a huge shot and gave me the whole red bull and it was only $6.50. The cabaret upstairs is awesome and reminded me of a comedy club if it were in vegas. (not as big as a comedy club though). Only down side is they don't take credit cards but have an ATM that charges $3. If they are worried about peolple not "out" having carousel 2 show up on their credit card statements they can simply create a company name to show up on the bank statement that is different then the bar name. Problem solved. Other then that, the staff was very friendly, both male and female. I will def be back!

Avoid State Line Bar & Grill! I Have never been to a venue that has a stage the was run more unprofessionally then State Line Bar & Grill. I complete a stand-up set after DJing for nearly two hours. After completing my set to mixed reviews (some loved it) Owner Amy Booher pulled me outside and informed me that I was not going to be paid $1 of the agreed amount. She was very rude and unprofessional. If you are a performer/musician/artist, DO NOT perform at State Line Bar & Grill.

Now I have to disclose, I promote the comedy shows that happen every Sunday night in the Speakeasy at Preservation Pub. However, from a artist stand-point, Scott and Bernadette have always taken care of all the performers I have brought in to do comedy. The stage area in the Speakeasy is easily converted into a lounge at the base of a staircase that leads to one of the only rooftop bars in downtown Knoxville. The rooms are narrow and long, but there are three floors of options. Music is usually downstairs, some acoustic acts and stand-up comedy on the second floor, and a plant friendly rooftop bar that has limited seating but a great view. Don't take my word for it, I promote the place, come see for yourself.
