Wed update 2: Aldo’s to start Monday Pint Nite and will have RedZone, book signing (attn LSU and SEC fans), Grizzlies giveaways

Aldo’s Pizza Pies is starting a new Pint Nite. Starting next Monday, all the drafts on their 30-tap wall will be only $3. Hmmm interesting. I knew if they did a pint night they wouldn’t do it on Tuesday where they’d be competing with Bardog. They’ll be in direct competition with that place around the corner though. I like it – nice to have two options nearby for $3 beer on Mondays.

Also, if you’re a football fan, Aldo’s will have NFL Redzone on all its Comcast TVs. I watched Redzone for the first time last Sunday, and what they say is true. You don’t miss anything.

Local sports writer Ryne Hancock will have his first book signing for his new book, Say Goodnight, Cassie: The Story of the 2011 LSU Tigers Downtown this Saturday. The signing will be at 3:30 PM at the Center for Southern Folklore. The book covers the 2011 LSU season through the eyes of the fans and people who covered the team, beginning with the season opener in Arlington through the rematch with Alabama in the BCS national title game. For more details about the book and how it got its name, visit this page. Signing will be at the Folklore Store, with an entrance on Main by the trolley stop. has the full list of 2012-13 Grizzlies giveaways at the games at FedExForum. Highlights include a SuperGrizz cape, Grizzlies Christmas wrapping paper, backpacks, and several T-shirts.

All right… time to go drink some beer and inform the managers at my favorite bar that they have competition on Mondays. I’ll be at Blind Bear at 8 for trivia.
