A Taste of South Main at Trolley Night this Friday

This Friday will be the first warm-weather South Main Trolley Night of the season, with many galleries and restaurants open from 6 to 9.

This month they have something special: A Taste of South Main! Buy a $10 wristband from any Trolley Tour beverage tent, and you’ll get to sample food at participating restaurants. Restaurants include Harry’s Detour, the Blue Monkey, Max’s Sports Bar, Pearl’s Oyster House, Silly Goose, South of Beale, and more restaurants to come.

There will also be a Taster’s Choice award as two South Main cooks face off against one another for the title of master chef. Trolley Night attendees will be able to sample and vote for the winner. Food samplings? Wonder if the Nuh-Uh Girl will show up.

Also, the South Main Association will be grilling out for the first time of the year, with free burgers and Ghost River beer for SMA members. $5 for non-members. Reminds me, I’ve got to renew my membership dues! SMA membership is too valuable to let lapse.

In the news: It looks like Mike Anderson will be the new head basketball coach of Arkansas! Pleased to hear it, after hearing Tubby Smith’s name being tossed around earlier. Nothing against Tubby personally, but I think Forty Minutes of Hell better suits the Hogs than Tubbyball.

Home from work. Time for beer.
