It’s Independence Day and the final day of Tube Top Month. Who’s going to rock an American flag tube top today?

Southwest Airlines is coming to Memphis, and live TV is coming to Southwest. Thanks to a partnership with DISH Network, passengers will be able to watch up to 75 different shows on their Internet-ready devices. While the other airlines add more fees, Southwest adds more perks.

Chez Philippe in the Peabody Hotel has been named one of the 100 best wine restaurants for 2013 by Wine Enthusiast magazine. The magazine called Antigal’s Uno Melbec, paired with rack of lamb and huckleberry au jus, a perfect pairing.

Paulette’s restaurant, on Mud Island in the River Inn, has announced a new Wednesday night special: Generous sized Maine lobster tail, sweet corn risotto, garlic spinach, drawn butter and mixed salad for $26.95.

Rocky Horror Picture Show returns to The Orpheum Friday, July 19. It will be hosted by Memphis Flyer writer Chris Davis, who in addition to writing is an accomplished director. This event happens yearly and is always a lot of fun. The Orpheum sells bags of props and encourages audience participation. Come watch Memphis’ grand theatre get toilet-papered as you watch this classic 1975 movie.

The Boston Celtics named Brad Stevens head coach. That was a savvy move that I did not see coming. Stevens, 36, led Butler to consecutive Final Four games in 2010 and 2011. He is known for his calm demeanor and his extensive use of analytics.

More and more it looks like Lionel Hollins will watch the 2013-14 NBA season at Buffalo Wild Wings rather than on the sideline.

Plans for today: Going to kick things off at the Saucer then go over to a friend’s condo to cook out. I didn’t take off tomorrow and am wishing I had, because my building has a DJ on the rooftop at 10:30. At any rate, I’m going to enjoy this day as long as I can. Happy Fourth!
