Attention, Gentlemen!

You’ve waited patiently for your turn. Last month, we brought you our Ladies issue—it is ladies first, after all—and this month, we present our “Gents” issue.

Yes, we celebrate the dads in our lives with Father’s Day on June 16, but there are so many more reasons why it’s great to be a guy this month. With the summer season underway, the long, sunny days can be filled with backyard cookouts, baseball games, camping trips, fishing excursions and so much more.

Since we got advice last month from our local women, this month we are asking for life lessons from three local guys who you may know or see out and about. For those looking to go out and play, we profile a longtime local outdoor retail establishment that does more than just sell gear. If you happen to be going to the beach or mountains for some R&R, check out the Page Turners for some summer reads and pick one up to take along. In Financial Buzz, see how “Money is the Fuel, Not the Destination,” and if you are still looking for a Father’s Day gift for Dad, why not give him tickets to the 9th Annual Knoxville Brewfest, a benefit for CureDuchenne featured in Giving Back?

So, gents, take some time for yourself—crack open a cold one or perhaps a new book, or maybe you just want to find a spot to take a nap. Whatever you feel like doing, go ahead and be you—because this month is all about you!

Finally, while enjoying this current issue of West Knoxville Lifestyle, I encourage you to patronize our marketing partners, as they are the ones who help make it possible.

As always, please reach out with ideas, suggestions or questions.

Happy Father’s Day and happy reading,
