The dog ate my post

I could not function without Evernote. I keep everything in there. I have an “Important Facts” note with things like my mother’s address and phone number for when I need to fill out insurance forms. I have a “things to explore at work” note when I get ideas for work when off the clock. And I have a “things I need to blog” note that I copy and paste into WordPress and build a post around

So yesterday morning I attempted to cut and paste into WordPress. Except I got the paste part wrong and couldn’t undo it. Apologies if I talk about stuff I have previously mentioned. Just trying to remember six paragraphs worth of information that didn’t go on the blog yesterday.

Before we get to that, though, one of the best festivals of the year happens Downtown today! Rajun Cajun crawfish fest, between Union and Beale on the river, noon to 6. Buckets of crawfish, food trucks, carnival vendors, live music, free to enter but it’s a fundraiser for Porter-Leath so when you spend money, it goes to a good place. I will lead off at D-RANKS with B-RAD today then head down to the river about 12:30 if anyone wants to join.

Speaking of Porter-Leath: They are hiring for several jobs in the education field.

Today’s Redbirds road game in Colorado Springs is being postponed due to bad weather. It will be made up in June.

Memphis Made Brewing Co. is bringing back its popular sushi class on Sunday, May 22. For $40 you get everything you need to learn to make sushi, taught by the experts at Birmingham Sushi. This class was a huge hit last time, so you better register soon if you want to go.

Speaking of Memphis Made, I went up there Friday night to visit my friend Mike who lives down the street as well as my favorite pair of librarian glasses.

Their new Dockside beer is really tasty. I would link to a description but they don’t have it on the website yet.

Having spent most of yesterday in South Main, I stopped at Rizzo’s Diner on the way back north.

Cheeseburger soup is one of Chef Michael Patrick’s signature dishes. It is the perfect way to start a meal at Rizzo’s.

(I think my iPhone may have rotated this 90 degrees, but whatever, it’s food, you get the point.) For my main course I got the Cajun seasoned chicken pot pie, with Andouille sausage, bell peppers, and seasonal veggies. Man, was this ever good! Thanks Chef for another awesome meal.

Finally made that trip to Nate’s bar at Earnestine & Hazel’s last night. Nate, it was good to see you again.

Happy birthday to my friend Mary, one of the most beautiful souls I have ever met. It has been wonderful to watch her find happiness this past year.

Tomorrow is Tax Day, or “file an extension so I can get to Bardog an hour earlier” day as I like to think of it.

Grizzlies vs. Spurs Game 1 on TNT tonight at 7. I have a feeling this ain’t going to be pretty.

Ballet Memphis performs Cinderella at the Orpheum at 2 today.

The University of Memphis’ student-run record label is presenting Hear 901 Fest tonight at the New Daisy.

That’s it for now. Time for a couple of D-RANKS then crawfish.
