Wed update #2

Potential sell-out alert: The 1994 movie Clerks will be shown at the Halloran Centre Friday night as part of the Orpheum’s Summer Movie Series. The movie series has moved to the Halloran Centre for a couple of months while the Orpheum gets renovations, but Halloran’s auditorium is smaller (I think capacity is 361). This is a very popular movie, and in a space that small it is likely to sell out. If you want to go, I suggest you purchase your tickets in advance. Tickets are $8 for adults/$6 children. This movie is rated R and I have seen it myself, and would not recommend taking kids under 13 to see it. Fabulous cult classic movie for adults though.

The movie starts at 7, but come early to take a quiz to see which Clerks character you are, and for the chance to win an Indie Memphis prize. Drink specials and selfie station prior to the movie.

Explore Memphis, the new bike share program coming to the city, will have a demo from 4 to 7 PM at Union and Main today.

Ghost Town Blues Band headlines the Thursday Peabody rooftop party tomorrow night. $10 to get in, first 200 ladies free, doors open at 6, entertainment starts at 7. Admission includes a buffet of assorted pintxos and…

Wait. You’re thinking “WTF is a pintxo?”, aren’t you? Google to the rescue. It’s a Spanish thing, a small snack that is skewered on a cocktail stick.

… and if you’re in VIP, you get a second buffet of traditional paella, tortillas espanola, and chorizo stuffed mushrooms. Raspberry margaritas and Firefly moonshine peach sangria are the drink specials, with an additional drink special of pineapple passion punch in VIP.

WWE Monday Night RAW has been announced for FedExForum Monday, September 19. I may have to go to that one. Would love to see Enzo Amore and Big Cass in person. Finn Balor too. Also Sasha Banks.
