Circus headlines the Peabody rooftop party tonight. The cover is $10, but if you’re female or a hotel guest you can get in free before 7:00. Admission includes a buffet of smoked Polish sausage, sauerkraut, peppers & onions, and rolls. If you’re in VIP there’s a second buffet of weiner schnitzel sliders, bratwurst, and German potato salad.
Steel Magnolias will be on the big screen tonight at the Orpheum. Movie at 7, but doors open at 6 and you can come early for drink specials and pre-movie activities.
Memphis Made Brewing Co. is expanding. They have added three new fermenters to more than double their beer production. This move happened faster than expected, but demand for Memphis Made beer is high. The brewery currently distributes beer in kegs and bottles to more than 60 restaurants, bars, grocery stores, and liquor stores. Visit the brewery’s website here.
There will be a summer pup pool party this Saturday, beginning at 10 AM, at Downtown dog park The Barking Lot at N. Main and Jefferson. In addition to pools for splashing, your dog will be able to enjoy licking ice sculptures made especially for pets. Donations to Mid-South Spay and Neuter will be accepted, either monetary donations or in-kind. Top in-kind needs are distilled water, paper towels, stamps, and copy paper.
The Iron Sheik the real, he not the jabroni like the Tito Santana. He in Rolling Stone, you read or otherwise go f*** yourself.
Funny moment at the Silly Goose last night. One of my friends asked, “So what’s up with that weird guy who follows you around everywhere? I guess he didn’t follow you today?”
“No, that’s him, sitting six seats down the bar from you, eating Thai meatballs and pita points and taking pictures of his food,” I said. Then I showed her a picture of him that has gone viral lately, of him holding a beer at Bardog after he got drunk at a beer festival and fell down in the mud. He had on his still-muddy shirt and a red, white and blue headband in the pic. ‘Merica!
Plans for tonight: If you didn’t see this morning’s post, Jessica will be tending bar at Silly Goose in a tube top at happy hour today, so I guess I don’t need to tell you where I will be. Most likely you can expect a tube top pic on the blog tomorrow.
