Max’s taking poll about smoking and more (Wed update #2)

If you’re a customer of Max’s Sports Bar, you might want to pull up their Facebook or Twitter page today and vote. Max is polling his customers on whether he should continue to allow smoking at his bar. The sports bar has been a smoking establishment since it opened as Calhoun’s on the last day of 2007.

I have mixed feelings about this but am going to hold off sharing them until the vote concludes, to avoid having undue influence on the results. I will say that I voted my personal preference, which is nonsmoking.

The Brass Door is closing at 3 today for a private event. Diamond Dave’s British Bingo will move to Thursday this week only, at 7:30 PM.

Looks like the South Bluffs guard shack took a direct hit from a vehicle sometime in the past day. I hope everyone is all right.

The MBJ has info on Grizzlies uniforms, which will change in the 2017-18 season to incorporate sponsor logo patches. The sponsor will be team-wide; individual player sponsorships will not be allowed.

Pranom Pop-Up, the nationally famous Thai street food vendor, is coming back to Memphis tomorrow evening. They will be at Earnestine & Hazel’s from 7 until they run out.

Alexander Hamilton is staying on the $10 bill, but Andrew Jackson will be replaced by Harriet Tubman on the $20. Replacing a man who owned slaves with a woman who led slaves to freedom… I applaud this. Excellent decision.

I’m going to lead off at the Silly Goose for happy hour, then I’ll go over and check out the My HQ alley party next to Bardog. Possibly an after-work post, so check back.
