Tue update: Stufz test at Green Beetle, Central BBQ Thirsty Thursday, new homebrew supply shop, MSO kickstarter

You may have seen one of those “As Seen on TV” commercial for a device called Stufz. Stufz is claimed to be the easy way to make a gourmet stuffed burger. Tonight, Action News 5’s Andy Wise puts Stufz to the test at Downtown restaurant the Green Beetle, making stuffed versions of the Beetle’s burgers. I hear there will be a special guest judge helping out, someone who is an expert in the local burger community.

This Thursday, the Downtown Central BBQ will tap the last available Memphis Made Humbucker IPA keg on earth (for now) for the weekly Thirsty Thursday event starting at 4 PM. This beer is a limited edition IPA with generous portions of Amarillo hops. The Memphis Made Brewing Co. held this last keg back specifically for their friends at Central. There will also be Memphis Made Lights Out and Plaid Attack on draft for only $3, and if you buy one of those beers you get to keep the Memphis Made/Central glass. There will be fresh fried chicken skins, pork rinds, and homemade potato chips to snack on at the bar. Free food? Wonder if the Nuh-Uh Girl will show up.

Speaking of beer, a new homebrew supply shop is set to open at 2881 Poplar in the Chickasaw Crossing shopping center.

You may have heard that the Memphis Symphony Orchestra is in a state of financial crisis. If you want to donate to support the symphony, you can do so here on Kickstarter. Of course, you can also support by going to www.memphissymphony.org buying tickets to performances.

The Grizzlies host the Washington Wizards at 7 at the FedExForum. SportSouth will be the local TV for this game.

I’ll be at poker at the Blind Bear tonight at 8. Expect a “winner winner chicken dinner!” post to Facebook about 10:45.
