Sun update: Parade for Silky, Memphis to Moore fundraiser

You know what I was thinking the other day? Online dating sites would be a lot more appealing if they had “tube top” in their name. For instance:

On to the news. Tomorrow Silky Sullivan will be remembered in perhaps the most appropriate way: There will be a parade in his memory on Beale Street. It starts at 2 PM.

Earlier I posted a “save the date” notice for a fundraiser to be held for the Moore, Oklahoma public schools, badly damaged in the May 20 tornado outbreak. Here are the details: The fundraiser will be called Memphis to Moore and it will be held in the ballroom at the Westin Hotel on Friday, June 14, beginning at 7:00. My friend Angie, a Moore native and a product of the Moore public schools, partnered with the Westin and Red Rover to make this happen. Guests will enjoy complimentary food from Bleu, free drinks(!!!!!!!!!), and free valet parking. There will be live entertainment, T-shirts for sale, and a silent auction as well. $50 in advance, $60 at the door. Funds raised will go to the Moore Public Schools Tornado Relief Fund. I am buying a ticket and will absolutely be there.

It’s Texas de Brazil day! Now and then a group of about 12 of us will descend upon the Sunday brunch buffet. I try not to load up on the salad bar too much to save plenty of room for meat, but the lobster bisque, au gratin potatoes, and bacon are not to be missed. I always get extra lobster bisque to dip the meats in. So good. I’ll get my usual Flying Saucer visit in later in the day, but since I tend to sit at the bar it won’t be until after 5. Undecided whether I’ll play poker at the Blind Bear at 6:30. Outta here for now… time for MEAT!!!
