Ghost River is offering everyone the opportunity to go green on St. Patrick’s Day. No, not green the color, but green as in helping to protect our environment. They’re partnering with Wolf River Conservancy for a special event that day from 5:00 to 10:30 PM. They will be selling Magic Car Bombs with all proceeds going to the conservancy.
Yippie Trippie and the Porkstars will be on hand, selling from their regular menu along with some special beer-infused goodies for the holiday. Specials will include Irish stew, shepherd’s pie, corned beef and cabbage pizza (what???), and chocolate stout cupcakes. If you wear green, you will get $1 off Ghost River’s Riverbank Red Irish-style red ale.
The Memphis Farmers Market has created their Facebook event for Opening Day on April 1. If your idea of a farmers market is a few guys in trucker hats and overalls selling taters and maters out of milk crates, well, you’re not wrong, but the Memphis Farmers Market is so much more than that. There’s live music, food trucks, and dog adoptions. Bluff City Coffee has a huge stand selling drinks, pastries, and loaves (try the cinnamon duffin). In addition to fresh produce, vendors sell meat, seafood, breads, hot sauces, cheeses, popsicles, dog treats, pottery, pre-prepared meals, soaps, and lots more. The Market is under the pavilion at Front and G.E. Patterson (and they have promised the construction will be cleared out of their space) every Saturday from 7 AM to 1 PM April 1 through October 28. If you want to meet some of Memphis’ best local chefs, head down to the Market right at 7. You’ll find them shopping there.
Wednesday is Diamond Dave’s birthday bash at the Brass Door. There will be a DJ, live music, and specials. Dave will call British Bingo at 7:30.
Lisa’s Lunchbox has added smoothies to their Downtown menu.
Former FBI agent and author Joe Navarro tweeted a list of traits of the paranoid leader. Take a look and see if these traits remind you of anyone you’ve seen on a reality TV show, or anyone you follow on Twitter.

Zeke Johnson brings blues and stories to the Center for Southern Folklore this afternoon from 3:30 to 6:30.
Charlie Wilson’s “In It To Win It” tour makes a stop at FedExForum tonight at 7.
Cheers to my friends running the Little Rock Marathon today! Two of my friends discovered the River Market yesterday. Awesome place isn’t it?
Last Sunday I returned to the poker table at the Blind Bear, but I won’t be playing tonight (but if YOU want to, start time is 6:30 and it’s free to play). I have some important viewing to do, as WWE Fastlane will be on. I’m as big a Goldberg fan as anyone, but I think taking the Universal title off Kevin Owens, one of the best workers in the company, to put on a 50-year-old part-timer would be a big mistake. I would rather see Owens vs. Chris Jericho for the title next month at Wrestlemania, where we can see if Jericho puts the title on The List.
Speaking of the Bear, it’s almost time for D-RANKS with B-RAD. Sunday Fun Day! Back tomorrow with more news.
