Sat update: White Trash Wednesdays at Escape Alley, 99 cent beer at Kooky, new bacon donut burger

Escape Alley Sundry has announced a new weekly Wednesday event: White Trash Wednesday. Bringing the best of white trash music and beer from 5 to 9 Wednesday evenings, the bar posted on Facebook: “Leave all your inhibitions to the wind, tease your hair, spray on a whole can of hairspray, put on daddy’s favorite Merl Haggard shirt and leather jacket and come get down. And ladies, don’t forget your blue eye shadow & bubble gum.” And don’t forget to stop by Wal-Mart and buy a tube top to wear! Escape Alley Sundry is located near the intersection of Monroe and Marshall, by General Washburn’s Escape Alley.

Kooky Canuck will do 99 cent Bud Light draft all day tomorrow, Sunday, May 29. Kooky usually does this promotion the day before Monday holidays, so this is a celebration of Memorial Day, but I like to think it’s a celebration of Tube Top Month too. Wear your tube tops to Kooky tomorrow and drink some super cold Bud Light for cheap!

Over in my hometown of Little Rock this weekend, it’s Riverfest, with music on multiple stages, food, cold beer, and lots of ladies in tube tops. The newest food over there is the Donut Burger. It’s two Krispy Kreme donuts, coated in chocolate, with bacon in between. Absolutely brilliant. Someone needs to bring the Donut Burger to Memphis.

By the way, for my Little Rock readers, check out my friends the Dirty White Boys, who take the stage at 3:30 this afternoon.

Stuff going on today: Redbirds play Omaha at AutoZone Park, 6:05; International Blacksmith Day at the Metal Museum; fire dancers at the Rumba Room, 7:30 ($10); and of course Sunset Symphony.

It’s 10:43 as I type this, which means the bar opens in 17 minutes. Time for me to hit Publish and get down there!
