Sunday update: Police cameras, Triple H, General Tso’s Shrimp, Arkansas Razorbacks football

Eight new police cameras are being installed along the riverfront as part of a port grant. Two are on the bridge to Mud Island, one is on Riverside Drive, and five are on President’s Island. More new cameras are already installed elsewhere including South Main.

If you’re a WWE fan, this interview with executive Triple H is a must-read. Trips discusses at length how he went from being a main-event level talent to a key figure in the WWE corporate office, and it was a lot more than just marrying the chairman’s daughter. He also discusses the creation of the new WWE Talent Development Center in Florida, and how important it is to have the center now that the territory system no longer exists. Triple H is the likely successor as the head of the WWE once Vince McMahon steps down.

Yesterday afternoon I was trying to figure out what to have for dinner, and I talked to a friend who had tried Yao’s China Bistro for the first time on Friday. He had the General Tso’s Chicken and really enjoyed it. So I ended up getting on Yao’s website and ordering the General Tso’s Shrimp. Ten minutes later I walked over and my order was ready. It was very good, with lightly breaded shrimp and a sauce that was HOT. They really weren’t afraid to load it up with hot peppers. I love spicy food and it hit the spot.

I want to take a minute to apologize to the person who sent me information about an Ole Miss watch party Downtown. I appreciate the info, but I do not post offensive material to my blog. However, I will comment that the Arkansas Razorbacks open against Louisiana at 3 PM on Saturday, August 31, and Max’s Sports Bar is a great place to watch.  This is a game that will be carried on FSN, not a pay-per-view game, so Max’s should have no trouble carrying it.

I’ve been typing a Paul’s PBR Review post for the past hour, and now I am super hungry because the place I’m reviewing has really good food. Ready for the Majestic to open at 11, and today I will most definitely be getting food with my mimosa. Stops at Silly Goose and Flying Saucer after that. If I’m still standing by 6:30 – and it’s questionable whether I will be – I’ll play poker at the Blind Bear. This is the last real summer Sunday Fun Day. Next week is the Memphis Music & Heritage Festival, and after that it will be NFL season which will cause a re-shuffling of my Sunday stops. For now, though, I’m ready to get this day started, and since the Majestic is still 48 minutes away from opening, it’s time to hit the fridge and pop a PBR open.
