The Majestic Grille is having a special lunch with Buddy Guy this Thursday, May 6. Tickets are $75 and include an autographed Blues Music Awards poster, a meet & greet with Buddy, a buffet lunch, and a viewing of a “Buddy & the Blues” art show. Call 522-8555 if you want to make a reservation – they’ve said that space is limited, so this will likely sell out.
I’ve learned of another Cinco de Mayo party – the Silly Goose will have $3 margaritas and $2 tacos Wednesday night from 5 PM until they sell out. I went to their party last year and it was a blast… people loved the tacos, in fact they loved them so much that they ran out before I got to try one. Wow between this and the Kooky de Mayo party around the corner, I wonder if I’ll even make it to the Saucer for my daily stop. I wonder how you say “Brick” in Spanish?
The Goose will also have an event tonight – they’re celebrating the launch of Inocente Tequila, beginning at 7 PM.
This Saturday there’s a Super Saturday tour with historian Jimmy Ogle. Join him at 1:30 PM at Front and Union, and he’ll take you of a walk-around tour of Downtown, where you’ll tour the cobblestones, river, railroads, promenade, Cotton Row, Main Street, the Peabody and more. Tour lasts until 4 PM and is free of charge. It’s presented by the CCC. Check their website for a full calendar of lunchtime events happening this week.
Twitter quote of the day, from @watchdogon3: “Diane Hampton of MIM says she’s angry how newspaper predicted weather before it occured. THAT’S WHAT WEATHERMEN DO. It’s called a forecast.”
More to come later. Right now I’m going to make a run to Zaxby’s for some chicken. I’ve never eaten at Zaxby’s before.
