My good friend Angela Copeland is launching her new business, Copeland Coaching. Angela has been mentoring job candidates for 9 years, and has shown job seekers how to get to the head of the pack. Her e-book Breaking the Rules and Getting the Job explains what to do. Angela is available for one-on-one mentoring, interview preparation, and resume tune-up. Angela was one of the organizers of the Memphis to Moore fundraiser that raised over $25,000 for the Moore Public Schools that were devastated by tornadoes. I have known Angela for over 10 years and have worked with her on many projects for MPACT Memphis, and I recommend her highly.
A new record eating the Kookamonga burger at Kooky Canuck has been set: Matt “Mega Toad” Stonie at the burger in 4 minutes and 43 seconds, beating the previous record by more than 2 1/2 minutes. The Kookamonga comes with a 4 pound beef patty and with the bun and all the fixins weighs in at more than 7 pounds.

I’m back to work after an absolutely EPIC Sunday Fun Day. In my 10 years of doing Sundays Downtown, this one was in the top 5 for sure and maybe the top two or three. After Daniel nearly killed me with a spicy Bloody Mary at Blind Bear, I joined a couple of friends at the Flying Saucer for an in-depth conversation with bartenders Sara and Wingsauce, most of which they would kill me if I quoted here. Afterward there was a second trip to the Blind Bear, where I met Kim who organizes the local Dishcrawls. My BBQ teammate Buddha invited her to the Moody Ques BBQ team booth for 2014. That invitation is another thing I can’t quote here, or I will feel the wrath of team president/lawyer Moody. If you’re friends with me on Facebook you can read it on my timeline though.
I have a 5-cent PBR wooden nickel to cash in, so I’ll start at Melissa’s bar at Bardog after work. After that, Pint Nite at the Saucer for $3 drafts off the wall.
