Thursday morning update

I can’t resist starting off this post with a link shared by one of our BBQ team’s Yankees. In Beaver, Ohio, a suspected prostitute was arrested for allegedly soliciting an undercover officer, saying she would have sex with him for $50 and some nachos. If I have any “working ladies” who read this blog who work the Cooper-Young area, you might want to take a page out of Beaver, Ohio’s book and see if you can score some Bad Ass Nachos with your next trick.

Downtown business owners: Do you need to repair sidewalks in front of your place? The DMC has a fund for that, providing interest-free loans of up to $5000, although most loans are expected to be in the neighborhood of $1000. The loans are for sidewalks in the Downtown core as well as the Pinch as far north as A.W. Willis.

The Comma Comedians are back at Memphis Made Brewing Co. for Draughts and Laughs VII tonight. Show starts at 7:30, $2 to get in. Enter through the York Avenue doors.

Want to rock Coach Fiz’s glasses? Verno with the news on a Grizz giveaway on the 25th:

Fiz, by the way, refuted a story I linked to yesterday and said there is no truth to the story about the Grizz boycotting Trump hotels. He said the decisions about hotels are made long before Election Day.

Doubleheader alert: This Saturday, November 19, both the Tigers and the Grizzlies will play home games. The Tigers will lead off things at FedExForum, hosting Savannah State at 11. Then the Grizzlies take the floor at 7:30 versus the Minnesota Timberwolves.

Time to get started with the Thanksgiving news. Add the Peabody to the list of places that will cook a Thanksgiving dinner for you to take home:

On the other hand, if you’re cooking at home, here’s a Southern Weekend video of Chef Felicia teaching how to make a bourbon pecan pie.

If you want to get out on Thanksgiving, either early in the day to eat or after 5 to drink, Holly has an ever-growing list that is worth bookmarking and checking again in a few days to see what has been added.

If you’ll still have family in town the day after Thanksgiving, November 25, Trolley Stop Market will be showing off its brand new brunch menu. There will be local eggs, breakfast plates, burritos and pizzas. Groups large and small are welcome and you can call 901-526-1361 for reservations.

That’s it for now. Probably back later today with Farmers Market news.
