Saturday update

Got a few more Halloween parties to tell you about, and of course don’t forget that the biggest party of them all, Sinners for Saints, is tonight.

Twerk or Treat happens at Earnestine & Hazel’s today. Blues Express and Evan Farris will play E&H, and Blake and Brandy and DJ Decepticon will play 5 Spot. $10 cover after 10 PM.

Oshi Asian Kitchen will have a Halloween party tonight starting at 9. Free to get in. $4 wells, $2.50 drafts, and $6 large sake.

Alice in Daisyland: Halloween with The Crystal Method happens at the New Daisy toinght. DJ Tree, Scotty B, and Defcon Engaged will also perform.

YOGA! And bicycles! On Sunday, November 12, Revolutions Bicycle CoOp, Downtown Yoga and the Silly Goose are teaming up for Bicycles and Yoga. Meet at Downtown Yoga at 2 PM that day with your bike, helmet, and yoga mat. There will be a ride over the Harahan Bridge and around Downtown at an easy pace that allows for chatting. The ride will end at the Silly Goose where Amy from Downtown Yoga will lead a free 30-minute all-levels yoga class. After the class, participants are invited to stay at the Goose for drinks. This event is weather-dependent.

Well, Deyonta Davis and Ivan Rabb weren’t with the Memphis Hustle for long. The Grizzlies recalled them. They were just down there for the day yesterday to participate in the Hustle training camp scrimmage.

High Cotton put a post on Instagram yesterday asking that customers not bring in outside food or beverages anymore, in hopes that people will order from the place next door instead. Well, I guess my days of heating up a Banquet salisbury steak dinner in the microwave and then walking to The Edge are over. It paired so well with the Scottish Ale too.

Well, well, well! Interesting news coming out of Washington: The grand jury has approved the first charges in Special Counsel Mueller’s probe of the Trump/Russia campaign. Those charged could be taken into custody as early as Monday. Flynn? Manafort? Carter Page? I don’t think they’ve gotten to Trump or the junior Trumps yet. By the way, the reason the Trumpster ordered the release of the JFK files is because he knew this was coming and wanted to distract the media, not because he has any interest in justice.

It’s a rare day when I don’t know my plans for the day. Normally Bardog is my 11 AM stop but it gets super busy on race days. I will walk down there and if I see 10 people hovering outside waiting for them to unlock the door, I will continue south to Blind Bear for D-RANKS with B-RAD. If I don’t, Bardog it is. Probably holding off on RiverArtsFest until tomorrow because I will have my Halloween costume on today and it’s one that would cause a lot of kids to want their picture taken with me. Back tomorrow with more news.
