Damian Lillard To Graduate From College

Just call him Big-Brain Dame. 

Three years after leaving Weber State University—the obscure mid-major in Ogden, Utah, that recruited him out of high school—to enter the NBA draft, Damian Lillard is about to become a college graduate. Between elevating the Blazers to championship contention, signing lucrative endorsement deals and appearing in commercials with Nick Cannon and whoever the guy who plays Cliff Paul is, one imagines Lillard wouldn't have the time nor the inclination to worry about the diploma he abandoned after his junior year. 

But according to campus newspaper The Signpost, the All-Star point guard somehow found time to continue his coursework, earning a bachelor's degree in technical sales. 

“Growing up, this was one of the things I never really saw myself having an opportunity to achieve," he told the paper, "and it’s a small dream come true."

It's also a promise kept. When Weber State basketball coach Randy Rahe shepherded Lillard to Utah from Oakland, it was on the condition that Lillard would "work hard enough to get his degree," Rahe told The Signpost

Lillard—named the NBA's Western Conference Player of the Week for Feb. 23—is set to receive his diploma on May 1, "barring any postseason commitments." In doing so, Lillard enters a rarefied group: The article cites a survey from 2009 which found that only about 21 percent of NBA players have an undergraduate degree. So in case this whole ballin'-outta-control thing doesn't last, he can always fall back on, like, selling Xerox machines or something. 

Club 21 Owners in Process of Buying The Sandy Hut

The Sandy Hut is dead; long live the Sandy Hut.

The owners of Club 21, Double Barrel, and Gold Dust Meridian are closing a deal this week to buy the 92-year-old bar on Northeast Sandy Boulevard, says the Hut's outgoing owner, John Berning. The Hut is a neighborhood landmark in part because of its giant sign and purple paint job—a majestically ruinous, windowless dive nicknamed the Handy Slut even on its own T-shirts. 

Berning shut down the bar on March 1, and says that he expects to close today on the deal already in progress. Starting today, he says, it's the property of Marcus Archambeault and Warren Boothby.

Boothby declined to discuss any plans he has for the Sandy Hut, saying the deal is not complete. 

Sandy Hut—long a bar reserved mostly for day-drinkers and old-guard lovers of formaldehyde-stiff drinks—enjoyed an unexpected resurgence recently after ditching their pool table and building a music stage, booking punk, garage and psych shows including a bizarre appearance by the Dwarves the day before New Year's Eve last year. Meanwhile, four blocks up the street, bar staff says Club 21 is cutting back on its live music. 

Last June, Club 21's landlords submitted designs to demolish Club 21 (despite the bar's long-term lease) and put up a 220-unit apartment complex in place of the century-old building—once a Russian Orthodox Church—which sits on a vast parking lot and looks like a house Hansel and Gretel might find in the forest. According to a bartender there, Boothby and Archambeault were at one point considering moving the entirety of Club 21 to a different lot

Berning says Boothby and Archambeault didn't approach him with a proposal to buy the business, but that he hadn't necessarily been trying to sell.

"We just kind of ended up in talks somehow," Berning says.
