Fri update: Brass Door beer bust today, one-man band festival, watch party for World Series game 2, Riverside closed tonight

I have more info about the beer bust that will happen at the Brass Door today. It will start at 4 PM and it costs $10 to take part in the beer bust. Beers will be Killian’s, Heineken, Bud Light, and yummy, delicious PBR!!!!! There will also be $3 shots of Spice Box, $4 shots of Fireball, $4 Georgia Whiskey (bourbon, peach, ginger ale), and $4 nutty espresso (hazelnut, triple shot vodka, soda).

Cool event at the New Daisy tomorrow night – a one-man band festival. Memphis legend Johnny Lowebow will be among the performers. Kerry’s blog has details on the festival and other things happening in Memphis this weekend.

AutoZone Park will have a watch party for Game 2 of the World Series on Thursday, August 25. Admission will be free to the public, and you can watch indoors on the club level or outdoors on the park’s new HD video screen. There will be an all-you-can-eat buffet ($7 if purchased in advance, $10 at the door) with Rendezvous BBQ, King Cotton hot dogs, Turner Dairy ice cream, and Coca-Cola soft drinks. All you can eat? Wonder if the Nuh-Uh Girl will show up. Cash bar selling Budweiser and Barefoot Wine. Season ticket holders who renew their seats for 2013 will receive one buffet wristband and drink ticket per season ticket renewed. Self-guided tours of the dugout and clubhouse, silent auction, kids’ activities. Buffet tickets can be purchased over the phone at (901)722-0295.

Riverside Drive will be closed tonight from Jefferson to Georgia for the St. Jude 24-hour bike ride. If you’re coming Downtown for the Orpheum show or any other event, plan an alternate route.

Fun time at the Double J loft bar last night… I pushed the sleep schedule a little and stayed out until 1. No definite plans tonight, but I’m sure spontaneous fun will pop up somewhere. It always does Downtown.

(Edit: just realized I had a second Thursday update and forgot to publish it yesterday evening. Scroll down and you’ll see it.)
