Early Tue update: Important PBR news, Columbus’ ships, Memphis wrestling

It’s 12:50, one of the earliest Tuesday updates I’ve ever done. However, there’s a reason I’m up this late: I won poker at the Silly Goose! $50 bar tab. I bought my runner-up Michael Bean a drink and have $35 left. That’s $79 total poker winnings and I’ll spend it one of these days when in the mood.

Trivia master Kevin Cerrito has announced something new for Tuesday trivia at Ferraro’s Pizzeria and Pub. During trivia, which starts at 8 PM, there will be $1 PBR. Hard to find a better deal on PBR than that! Otherwise, same format, prize for best team name and if there’s a three-way tie for best team name, there will be a dance-off.

This is pretty cool… replicas of The Nina and the Pinta, two of the three ships Columbus took on his first voyage to the New World, will be parked in the Memphis Riverboat Harbor October 14-23. These are said to be the most accurate replicas ever built. Admission will be $8 for adults, $7 for seniors, $60 age 5-16, and school tours are available. More info here. Thanks to Jake for the tip.

There will be a DVD release party for Memphis Heat: The True Story of Memphis Wrasslin’ at Central BBQ on Central, 4-7 PM, Friday, September 30. The event is free and open to the public. You’ll be able to enjoy the best of Memphis wrestling from the ’50s to the ’70s while enjoying sausage and cheese plates. Free food? Wonder if the Nuh-Uh Girl will show up.

Flying Saucer turned on the sound for the Monday Night Football game tonight. Glad they finally got a clue. Football draws customers, not a roast of Charlie Sheen.

Going to bed. 0 dark 30 comes awful early in the morning.
