I heard that my Bruce Pearl costume received some very positive air time on the Dan Wolken Show on the radio this morning! Thanks Dan! I had a lot of fun with that costume this weekend. It’s one where I can really get into character.
Halloween’s over and now it’s November. Let’s see what we’ve got today…
Tomorrow is Election Day. Do you know where your polling location is? If not, check out this Lifehacker post. Just put in your home address and it’ll tell you, and it will even link to the list of candidates on the ballot. Pretty cool. It totally takes away the “I don’t know where to go” excuse for not voting.
Found a new Twitter account to follow this morning – @memcrime. It tweets locations of crimes committed around the city. For example, there was a forcible fondling in the 3400 block of Rhodes this morning. Wasn’t me, I promise; I was at work. A note if you follow this account: It tweets a lot. Not surprising, since this is Memphis we’re talking about.
A reminder that tonight is the Majestic Grille’s Jam Jar Jazz Dinner benefitting the Memphis Farmers Market. It’s a vintage family-styled dinner sourced from local farms. Dine while you listen to the big band sound of Jazz Collective. You can check out their Facebook event listing to see the menu. 6-9 PM tonight, advance reservations required – call 522-8555 to make them. $65 speakeasy price (includes booze), $45 temperance price (no booze).
Felicia Suzanne’s will have live music on the patio from 7 to 9 PM Wednesday night, November 3. Hal and Jason from the Plaintiffs will play an acoustic set. Lolonis Chardonnay, Lolonis Cabernet Sauvignon, Estancia Pinot Grigio, and Estancia Pinot Noir for $5 a glass during the show.
Thanks to Kooky Canuck and Bardog Tavern for two fun Halloween parties last night! Weird to drive by Bardog and not see the hearse parked outside anymore.
I’ll be at Pint Nite tonight to drink beers 1, 2, and 3 toward my fifth plate.
