Wednesday update

We’ve got a couple of family-friendly events happening Downtown today if you’re looking for something to do with the kids. From 4:00 to 5:30 this afternoon, there will be a sing-along to music from the Disney movie Frozen at the Fourth Bluff Ice Rink. The Figure Skating Club of Memphis will have volunteers there dressed as characters from the movie.

Then over at Clayborn Temple, there will be a free family movie night tonight, showing the movie Jungle Book. The doors will open at 6, with the movie starting at 6:30. Popcorn and hot chocolate will be for sale.

The AutoZone Liberty Bowl parade happens tomorrow, Thursday, December 29 on Beale Street at 3 PM. Following the parade there will be a pep rally for both teams at 4:30.

Friday, December 30 is the final South Main Trolley Night of 2016, with many shops and galleries in the area staying open until 9 or later. Many of the shops offer complimentary beverages or hors d’oeuvres on this night and some have discounts. This month, two of the new shops of South Main will hosting a New Year’s Party for SMA members and their friends and visiting sports fans (the Liberty Bowl is that day).

New store Southern Creed at 524 S. Main has Southern-inspired designs including everything from dog collars to bow ties to wallpaper. They will have Makeda’s Cookies outside, and the Amurica photo booth will be on hand.

Just up the street at 510 S. Main, Naturelle Skin Care & Inclined Christian Designs will be showing off their locally sourced soaps, scrubs, and beauty products. There will also be custom framing and photography. You can dance to the DJ outside before or after you check out their goods.

South Side Supper Club will perform at the Dirty Crow Inn New Year’s Eve from 11 PM to 1 AM on the outdoor deck. If you aren’t a late night person, don’t forget you can catch ’em at the Ghost River taproom the following day.

I don’t know if I have any vegetarians who read this blog, but just in case I do, I will mention that the new Spanish Wrap at Cafe Eclectic Harbortown might be right up your alley.

Rizzo’s has their New Year’s Eve menu on their website.

On The Southern Weekend website, Felicia of Felicia Suzanne’s has a video teaching you how to make bacon and hot sauce deviled eggs.

Moody Ques teammates: I posted an update to the team website last night. Also, if anyone wants to use their extra Christmas money to go ahead and get your 2017 dues out of the way, our PayPal widget is now ready to go. Also, if you prefer to pay cash rather than via PayPal, we can make arrangements to get you in touch with our treasurer Misty.

That’s it for now, off to work. That happy hour PBR at the Silly Goose is going to be even more anticipated than usual, given that a 3-hour GoToMeeting stands between the PBR and me.
