Tuesday update

There are a couple of live music events going on Downtown this evening. At Loflin Yard, Robert Cray and Hi Rhythm perform tonight from 8 to 11. Tickets are $25.

Closer to Downtown’s center, South Side Supper Club plays Belle Tavern again tonight 7 to 10 in what is becoming an every-other-week gig. I plan to be there!

Over at High Cotton, there’s a real, actual supper club tonight rather than a band named after one. Stanley’s Sweet Treats food truck will provide the menu for the Memphis Supper Club this evening at 7. You can email taproom@highcottonbrewing.com and ask the taproom manager (who recently sent me a friend request on Facebook) if there are still spots open. As of yesterday afternoon there were 5 spots.

Aldo’s Pizza Pies Downtown is gearing up for the busy season, and they are looking to hire some fresh new smiling faces. They are looking for people who are hard-working, outgoing, friendly, and reliable. If interested apply in person between 2 and 4 PM Monday-Friday. Ask just about any longtime employee at an Aldo restaurant and they will tell you working for the company is like being part of a family.

Your Inner Yogi at 500 S. Second is currently running a Grand Opening Special – unlimited classes for one month for $45. YOGA!

The Grizzlies are looking for people to play in a 2 on CUE Challenge. That means you and a friend take on people dressed up as Rendezvous ribs. You could win two tickets to the April 9 game, dinner for two at the Rendezvous, a private tour of the Rendezvous, and an autographed Grizzlies item.

Scam alert: If an unknown number calls you and asks “Can you hear me?”, don’t say yes. They are recording your voice and will later claim that the “yes” was you giving consent to authorize a purchase or charge. Best advice is to just not answer calls from unknown numbers. Let them leave a voice mail. Scammers almost never do. I hate these scumbags who upset my mother so much in the final years of her life.

From Lifehacker: How Trump handles getting caught in a lie and what you should do instead. In case you didn’t watch the news yesterday: The FBI is investigating whether the Trump campaign colluded with Russia to influence the outcome of the 2016 presidential election. A sitting president is being investigated for treason. What has happened to this country?

Butler, UCLA, Kentucky, and North Carolina will have open team practices, free to the public on Thursday. There will be free parking for those who wish to attend in the Toyota Garage.

That’s all for now, off to work. Possibly another post later today.
