The Band once said, “There’s winners and there’s losers, and I’m South of the line.” As a proud UA alumna, I’m glad I’m very far North of the line. Still riding high from last night’s National Championship win? Check out these places to grab your gear and rep the feat for months to come.

🌟 Vaccines, vaccines and, oh yeah, more vaccines. According to data collected by Bloomberg, as of January 11, 2021, 57,000 Alabamians received a dose of the COVID-19 vaccine. One of them is my dad—hi Dad! See what the next steps are for administration in Alabama.
🌟 One of the most highly anticipated movies of 2021, Malcolm & Marie, *finally* released a trailer and the internet is freaking.out. Directed by the creator of Euphoria, and starring Zendaya (😍) and John David Washington, (😍) I think it’s safe to say we can cancel award show season and give this film allllll the Oscars. It will premier through Netflix, but hopefully, we can catch the indie film on the big screen at Sidewalk Film Center.
