Tue update: Green Beetle, Stock & Belle, ILM podcast, and a couple of letters worth a read

The Green Beetle is having a party Friday to celebrate the 3rd anniversary of its re-opening by Josh Huckaby, and the 75th anniversary of its opening by original owner, Josh’s grandfather Frank Liberto. Party starts at 5. Wiseacre Brewery will be joining the fun and will have six of their beers on draft. The Po Boys take the stage at 8.

In other South Main news, clothing boutique Stock & Belle at 387 S. Main, originally a temporary pop-up shop, will remain there permanently.

The I Love Memphis latest podcast features Memphis Flyer editor Bruce vanWyngarden. Bruce is always a fascinating person to talk to.

Couple of letters that are well worth a read:

Letter from an Englishman to the USA soccer team

Letter from a filthy rich American to his fellow filthy rich Americans on what will eventually happen given current distribution of wealth

This has been a good week so far. A few more hours of work this afternoon, a quick errand I need to get done, and then I will be out at Bardog for another bonus edition of Melissa Monday on a Tuesday.
