IMPORTANT BEER NEWS: From 4 PM until they run out (into the weekend if necessary), all of the beers on tap at Tamp & Tap will be $2.50.
It’s July Trolley Night on South Main. Tonight many of the shops and galleries will be open from 6 to 9 as people mill around and shop. There will also be artist and vendor booths set up along the street including an info booth for the Dixon, a sculpture and jewelry booth, dance demos by the Rumba Room, glass jewelry, the Memphis Roller Derby, and Miss Birdsong’s Sweet Tooth Desserts. There will also be live music in many South Main venues. Weather is unusually mild for this time of year, so I have a feeling this month’s Trolley Night will be well-attended.
There will also be a pop-up store at Trolley Night. Phillip Ashley Chocolates will be selling at Charlotte Fine Jewelry, 526 S. Main.
There’s a scary ’80s movie double feature at the Orpheum tonight with Ghostbusters and Poltergeist. First movie is at 7, but come early at 6:30 for a discussion with Memphis filmmaker Chris McCoy and WKNO’s Professor Ghoul.

If you have fond memories of roast for Sunday dinner, head on down to the Brass Door this Sunday. From 11 until they run out they will have a Sunday roast special of beef and Yorkshire puddings.
A $200 million hospital for woman and infants has been proposed for the corner of Adams and Dunlap. It has been said that the hospital will be world-class and state-of-the-art.
That’s all for now. After work I’ll make a last-minute decision whether to start at the Saucer as usual or check out Tamp & Tap.
