Thursday morning update

The Memphis Flyer’s web-exclusive bonus content Beer Bracket Unfiltered continues on. The latest installment of Unfiltered has the Flyer folks interviewing the brewers at Wiseacre. The interview starts off discussing Wiseacre’s interesting beer names. They mention Adjective Animal, a joke at how the beer industry names its beers… but in Memphis, Adjective Animal seems more like how the bar industry names its bars. The Green Beetle. The Dirty Crow. The Blue Monkey. The Silly Goose. The Blind Bear.

The people who developed Loflin Yard are developing a new concept a couple of blocks to the east on Carolina Avenue. They will put four repurposed grain silos on an empty 15,000 square foot lot in a new bar/restaurant concept. They want to draw pedestrian traffic to an area of Carolina that is currently rarely traveled on foot. The new bar will be at 141 East Carolina, in the area of the Cash & Carry and Wayne’s Candy.

Kooky Canuck is looking for a kitchen manager.
