Lots of restaurant news today. Let’s get to it…
Felicia Suzanne’s turns 9 years old this week, and they’re having a week-long celebration. Complete details can be found on the restaurant’s new website, which launched today. There will be a wine tasting, birthday cake, a cookbook signing, live music on the patio, a prix fixe birthday menu determined by your votes, and more.
In other restaurant news, the results are in for the vote for favorite specialty entree at the Majestic Grille. Winner is the Grilled Pork Tenderloin with Caramelized Carrots and Maple Cream. It will be $5 off all week.
Spindini will open their patio this Sunday, and local favorites Pam and Terry will play there from 6 to 9 PM.
Good article in the Commercial Appeal about Memphis Heat: The True Story of Memphis Wrasslin’. The film premieres Thursday and plays all next week, documenting Memphis wrestling from the early days through the 1970s.

I turned on sports radio as I drove to work this morning, knowing the topic would be the firing of Bruce Pearl. One caller suggested that they get rid of AD Mike Hamilton as well and promote women’s basketball coach Pat Summitt to AD. That would be the smartest move they’ve made in years. Summitt is a legend, she’s perhaps the only person at UT with any integrity, and she wouldn’t permit Pearl/Cal/douche type coaches to run amok. Let her coach women’s ball and be AD at the same time… there’s a precedent for it. Frank Broyles did it at Arkansas (men’s football coach/AD). With Summitt in charge I might even consider rooting for Tennessee football and basketball.
More to come later today. I have details of the upcoming South Main Trolley Night, which is going to be a good one (hint: come hungry), and another announcement too.
