Okay, nothing much interesting to blog about this morning. Well, several interesting things did come up yesterday, but “Paul, you’re not allowed to blog this” was involved in every one of them, so I’m not allowed to share.
I’m trying to use Twitter more effectively, to let people know about drink and food specials I see as I wander the streets of Downtown. Follow me at @paulryburn to receive those tweets. Of course, you have to put up with a lot of crap tweets too, stuff like my zillion Foursquare checkins at the Saucer, trash-talking #douchebags, commentary on what the Nuh-Uh Girl is eating, etc. @DowntownMemphis is also a good Twitter account to follow. They retweet a lot of restaurant and bar tweets about their specials.
One note about the @firesale account: That’s not the Flying Saucer. That’s my account. I find out what the Fire Sale is and tweet it, either by getting the info from the Saucer’s official account (on days they remember to tweet) or from people who work Downtown who text me the Fire Sale. I don’t get paid to do it or anything – it’s just something several Downtowners discussed doing for a while, to keep us all informed, and I figured out how to make it work via Twitter. So if you don’t like the chosen beer of the day, it doesn’t do any good to bitch to @firesale about it. The Saucer’s account is @FlyingSaucerMem.
Time to go out… not hungry, so not doing brunch this week. Saucer doesn’t open until 12… what to do? Hmmm maybe I’ll go by Kooky Canuck and see Magan and have a beer.
