Thursday update

Greetings and salutations everyone! Apologies for no post yesterday. We had a team lunch at work, so I had no time to get a lunchtime post up.

Project Green Fork works with local restaurants on practices that lead to greater environmental sustainability. On Thursday, June 8 from 6 to 9 PM, PGF will have its biggest fundraiser of the year, Loving Local, at Old Dominick Distillery. There will be food from PGF certified restaurants, a specialty cocktail, live entertainment, a silent auction, and a bottle pull. Tickets are $50.

Voodoo Gumbo with special guest Noah Cyrus will play tonight’s Peabody rooftop party. Tickets are $15 or go VIP for the season for $150. Doors open at 6 with ladies and hotel guests free until 7. Your admission includes a buffet of mini meatloafs and tater tots. If you’re in VIP, you have a second buffet of chicken and waffles, onion rings, and mini cheesecakes. Drink specials will be cherry margaritas and Firefly Peach Magic Moonshine.

Game dates and times and television broadcasts have been announced for seven Memphis Tigers football games this fall:

Bardog is sending a few of its lucky customers to the FedEx St.Jude Classic golf tournament. Come to happy hour any day this week (starts 5 PM). Buy a beer, get a raffle ticket.

Sache is hosting Sache Sunday: The First Wave Sunday from 11 AM to 7 PM to benefit the Mid-South Food Bank’s Operation Feed. $10 or two cans of non-perishable food to get in. There will be a 20-foot water slide (weather permitting), music from DJ Andy Boone, beer pong, and more.

Celebrity sighting: Richard “Cheech” Marin stopped by the Downtown Central BBQ earlier this week. Ain’t nothin’ like their BBQ nachos for when you get the munchies.

Holly has a look at the newly renovated LYFE Kitchen Chisca on the I Love Memphis blog.

Twilight Tuesday, the free outdoor movie series at Beale Street Landing, is back beginning Tuesday, June 6. Here’s the lineup.

That’s it for now, off to work. No team lunch today, so possibly back around 1:00 with a second post.
