This weekend I heard some GREAT news. The space formerly occupied by Alice’s, next door to The Corkscrew on S. Front near GE Patterson, is being taken over by the owners of the Blue Monkey. They will remodel it and reopen it as the temporary Downtown Blue Monkey while the real Downtown Blue Monkey is being rebuilt. From what I hear, the plan is to have it open in the old Alice’s space by Thanksgiving. Having our Monkey back (in any form) will truly be something to give thanks for.
That’s all I know for now, but I ‘m going to try to get out to the Midtown Monkey for lunch tomorrow and talk to the owners and get additional details.
My schedule for today: Bouncing back and forth between Sleep Out Louie’s and the Flying Saucer between now and about 6:30, then heading to the rooftop of Pembroke Square for Steve Cohen’s fundraiser. My allergies are really acting up today, so expect to see Sneezy Paul if you run into me today, to be replaced by Crackhead Paul tommorow after I run by Walgreens to get my allergy medicine.
(Edited to add a note for Philip)
Ole Miss lost yesterday, 27-3, to football powerhouse WAKE FOREST. Great job guys!
WHO THE HELL ARE WE?
Now go write a blog post about how your team at least beat the Memphis “Tiggers.” Like I care.
