The music lineup for “The Event I Don’t Care Much About That Happens 2 Weeks Before BBQ Fest,” or as others call it, “Memphis in May Beale Street Music Fest,” has been announced and you can view it here. Expect a lot of “This is the best lineup ever!!!” and “This lineup sucks!!!” today on Twitter.
The Music Fest lineup is not the biggest Downtown news today though. The MBJ reports that the 100 N. Main office building is to be converted into 250 apartments and a 170-room hotel. Current tenants have until June 1 to vacate. The hotel will occupy floors 9 through 19, with higher-end apartments above. By the time those apartments and hotel rooms are ready, they will be walking distance from the new Bass Pro in the Pyramid.
The latest rumor about the restaurant space in the ground floor of Lincoln-American Tower is that it has been rented to a cooking school similiar to L’Ecole Culinare and will be open to the public.
If you’ve ever been curious what happens at afternoon tea at the Peabody, here’s a Live at 9 video.
We now have a date on when former Memphian the Nuh-Uh Sister (sister of the Nuh-Uh Girl, who I posted about yesterday) will appear on the game show Jeopardy: April 25. She taped the show in January.
All right, off to do something I haven’t done a lot of on my lunch break lately: Eat lunch. I’ll be out at the usual places after work. WWE Network subscribers, don’t forget the NXT Arrival special tonight at 7!
