It’s 11 PM Saturday of Music Fest weekend and I’m home drunk. I took a nap this afternoon and could easily stay out until 2 or 3, but I want to be well rested for the Grizzlies tomorrow. Game is at noon and several bars are opening early. Let’s have a look at the list.
The Blind Bear will open at 11. They have a basketball special during Grizzlies games where all apps are half off (so, $3.50). You have to say “basketball special” to your bartender or server to get the deal.
“Grizzville” at Max’s Sports Bar will be open at 11. They will be serving their famous nacho brunch. Don’t ask, I have never heard of brunch at Max’s before.
Silly Goose will open at 11. They have a $3 Bloody Mary bar (sriracha as a Bloody Mary ingredient is the best).
The FedExForum will host the official Grizzlies watch party. Doors open at 11:30. Free to enter, concessions available, watch on Grizz Vision. Claw Crew, Grizz, and the Grizz Girls will be there.
There are also bars whose regular opening time is noon or earlier and will be showing the game. In the Downtown core these include the Flying Saucer, Bardog, Local, and the Brass Door. I think Mad Earl opens at 11 now too.
One of my BBQ teammates posted this link to Facebook earlier today: The 15 Kinds of Drunk People. Visit the Silly Goose about midnight on Saturday to meet all of these people.
Random pro wrestling videos of the week: No classic ’80s videos this time. This week’s footage is from Spring 2013, from WWE’s developmental territory NXT Wrestling. Developmental talent Emma (and the use of the word “talent” here is very questionable) makes her way to the ring in several videos. You may have heard of legendary women’s wrestlers like The Fabulous Moolah and Trish Stratus. You probably haven’t heard Emma mentioned among them. Here are reasons why. Emma 1
Emma 3 (Harlem Shake)
At least the theme song is catchy
To the music of Fandango
Full match vs. Audrey Marie April ’13 Dude, this girl sucks.
Off to bed. I will be watching the Grizzlies at the Blind Bear with my friends Dennis and Karen in the morning. Going to skip brunch at Majestic and go straight to Bear to get a good seat.
