Correction to my previous post: The Work-It Wednesday happy hour at Bardog is Wednesday, August 5, not tonight.
Woot is having a Woot-off today. Normally, Woot offers one item per day that is a tremendous deal… however, once in a while they have a Woot-off and sell one item after another, throughout the day. They sell one at a time until supplies run out, then go on to the next item. Here’s a link to a site that will help you track Woot-offs (thanks to the Nuh-Uh Girl for posting the link on Twitter).
The Memphis Music and Heritage Festival is just over a month away, and the Center for Southern Folklore needs volunteers. If you want to help make this Labor Day weekend festival a success, contact Brian at the Center or hit them up on their Facebook page. They need volunteers for stage management, beer, food and merchandise sales, and logistics.
The Liberty Bowl has a new website. Check it out here.
This has been all over the news the past couple of days, but I’ll mention it for anyone who missed it – a new film company, Paper Moon Films, is making use of a new concept called “crowd funding” to produce its first of three low-budget feature films. The film will be called “Open Five” and will be directed by local director Kentucker Audley. To learn more about the film or to donate, go here. There will also be a fundraiser called “Love Letter to Memphis” on July 30 at Minglewood Hall.
Wow, the Power House has been loaded with events lately… here’s another one… a reception tomorrow night, Thursday, July 23, from 5:30 to 7 PM, for “Counter Narratives,” an exhibit that is the result of a 5-week collaboration between the Power House and inner-city teens who participated in this year’s Memphis Youth Leadership Program.
Our trivia team finished 3rd last night, upping our gift certificate total to $110 for the next party.
I’ve heard that the glass the Flying Saucer is selling for “buy the beer, keep the glass” night tonight is an unusually nice one. It’s a New Belgium brewing company glass (they make Skinny Dip, Fat Tire, 1554, and Mothership Wit). I have more glasses than I need already, but may stop by just to take a look. I’ll definitely be out somewhere… 80 degree days in July are too rare not to enjoy.
