The city is having a Riverside Drive Open Streets party this Sunday at 4 PM. There will be food trucks and music by the Mighty Souls Brass Band. Bring your walking shoes or your favorite variety of self-powered wheels (bike, skateboard, etc.)
High Cotton Brewery has announced that the Stickem and Rock’n’Dough food trucks will be on hand to feed guests at its Saturday taproom grand opening, and Personalized Poetry will be there as well. The party lasts from 4 to 10. Currently there are 777 people listed as going on the Facebook event listing for the grand opening. It better be a really big taproom.
My friend Sarah Dalesandro, who was the lead artist for our Moody Ques booth at BBQ Fest has made a post on her blog called The Bus Starts Here. It’s a look at how the “red devil” bus design was put together, from the initial idea stage to winning the Best Booth trophy.
Sweetwater Brewery in Atlanta tweeted the following today: “Hey Memphibians, you thirsty?” Hmmm… could that be a hint?
The Orpheum is teaming up with the Society for Creative Anachronism to present something really special for its showing of classic movie Monty Python and the Holy Grail on Friday, June 20 (showtime 7 PM). There will be pre-show activities and demonstrations of what life was like in Europe before the 17th century, including authentic costumes and armor and demos of spinning and weaving. Costumes on guests are welcomed and encouraged. Get there early for the fun.
Bluefin is hiring line cooks.
Plans for tonight: In an unusual move, I plan to lead off at Local, assuming I get home from work on time. I ran into day shift bartender Courtney (seen on this blog in a tube top a couple of weeks ago) Sunday night and she presented a compelling argument on why I should come by and see her this week. She gets off at 6, so probably I will just do one beer at Local then wander over to the Saucer or somewhere else nearby. Undecided if I will play Blind Bear poker tonight at 8.
