Days away from the start of SEC football season, this notification popped up on my phone:
Just so @Paulryburn knows- I have TWO LSU tube tops and I am officially ready for football season to start.

If you want me to give up my love for the Arkansas Razorbacks and start cheering for LSU, this is the way to do it.
Tonight is the final regular season home game for the Redbirds, and they have several activities planned. A magnet listing the 2015 season schedule will be given to all attendees, and all attendees will also receive a voucher good for any 2015 regular season home game, excluding fireworks dates. Also, the date of the 2015 exhibition game against the St. Louis Cardinals will be announced. It will also be Fan Appreciation Night with giveaways every inning. First pitch is at 7:05.
(Edit: I had info here about the Beale Street cover charge here, but people from other bars are telling me it’s inaccurate, so I have removed it.)
If you plan to be outdoors at the Tiger football game or the Memphis Music & Heritage Festival this weekend, you might want to bring a rain jacket or disposable poncho. The MemphisWeather.net blog says this weekend may bring the best chances of widespread rain to the area in over a month, as tropical moisture that could become a short-lived tropical depression flows north from the Gulf of Mexico.
Beale Street Landing is launching Free Friday Flicks, a free movie series at the landing every Friday from August 29 to October 17. Riverfront Bar & Grill and Parker’s Concessions food truck will sell food and beverages. No outside coolers or picnic baskets will be allowed. This Friday’s film is Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone.
Cheap flight alert: If anyone in Memphis needs to fly to Washington DC, Frontier has a flight for $14 on Monday, September 8. (Credit @JosephMiner for tweeting this)
Fun Twitter account I discovered yesterday: I am a bear
I’ll start off at Jessica’s bar at the Silly Goose after work for happy hour today. Perhaps later I will engage in Facebook banter with someone who consistently bests me puts her superiority complex on display for all to see. Right now, time to hit Publish, grab a quick bite of lunch, and get back to work.
