There’s going to be an “All Pink Party” this Wednesday night, October 24, at the Silly Goose. Included in ticket purchase is a complimentary tasting of new appetizer menu items, a liquor and wine tasting, and a chance to win one of several items to be raffled off. Recommended attire is pink dress attire. 8:30-10 PM. For more info check the party’s event listing on Facebook.
A sinkhole has sprung up in Tom Lee Park, and repairing it will require more effort than first thought. Water has washed away a large area around a box culvert that runs underneath the park. The city will have to build a temporary road in the park to bring in materials to repair the hole. Thank goodness this didn’t happen in the weeks before BBQ Fest. More details here. Sorry for linking to an Indiana newspaper rather than something local, but I try to circumvent the CA’s stupid-ass paywall whenever I can.
I tried something new at City Market yesterday: Okra Masala from their refrigerated case. It’s a generous amount of okra and potatoes in Indian masala curry sauce. It’s only $2.99. If you’re not sure whether you like Indian food, it’s a good way to find out without spending a lot of money. Heats up in about 2 minutes in the microwave. If you like it, their meat dishes have a similar taste and are less expensive than going out to a restaurant.
Last night while drinking beer at the Saucer, I came up for an idea for a charity month for my blog, to run from Thanksgiving to Christmas. I need to research a few things but details will be coming soon. It’s an idea that has “me” written all over it (no, tube tops are not involved). Stay tuned.
Plans for today: Skipping brunch at the Majestic because of crowds from the Broadway show at the Orpheum. I’ll start at the Blind Bear at noon, then sometime around 2 head south to the parking lot party at the Double J. At 6:30 I’ll be back at the Bear for poker hosted by Michael Bean – not only because I like playing poker, but because it’s an excuse not to stay at the J for karaoke. At some point I’ve got to fit in a visit to the Saucer for my 116th day in a row. Probably I’ll do that before poker.
Come on out to the Double J this afternoon. Eat, drink, be merry, and raise money for the Streetdog Foundation. I mean, what else are you going to do, hang out at the Horn Lake Chuck E. Cheese all day?
