Each participant will only be allowed a 6 iron, wedge, and putter in their bag. The winning team gets 4-$50 gift certificates to Max’s, and the winning and losing teams get trophies. Deadline for entry is April 8.

I get the weekly emails from the Downtown Memphis Commission listing what’s going on in the coming week (sign up at In this morning’s email I noticed a very cool event if you’re into different cultures of the world. Saturday there will be a celebration of the Persian New Year at 477 N. Fifth. There will be traditional Persian food and Nowruz ceremonies and dances. The email says to contact for more info.

Sesame Street Live will be at the FedExForum tomorrow and Saturday. 10:30 AM and 7 PM performances tomorrow. 10:30 AM, 2 PM and 5:30 PM shows Saturday. Title of the show is “Elmo’s Super Heroes.”

Segway Experience of Memphis is now officially operating tours of Downtown on Segways, starting from the Peabody. Call 901-529-4108 to book a tour. Follow the tour company on Twitter at @SegwayMemphis.

Here’s a Huffington Post article on the Moscow Mule. This is the light, refreshing drink made with vodka, lime juice, and ginger beer. The article fails to mention that the cocktail should be served in a copper mug. You can get a Moscow Mule at the Flying Saucer.

Reuters reports that the next iPhone will have a bigger 4.6 inch display. It will be a retina display, similar to what is used on the new iPad.

Plans for tonight: Undecided as of yet. Hmmm… it is poker night at Max’s Sports Bar though…
