Saturday update

Got one more deal to tell St. Jude Marathon runners about. Lyfe Kitchen in the Chisca is offering 26.2% off runners’ checks through Sunday, December 3.

And one more: 20% off your food at The Dirty Crow Inn with bib.

Flying Sobie’s will be back at the Ghost River taproom tomorrow, Sunday, December 3 at 12 PM and will be there all day (they’re there every Sunday). They’ll be serving up a brunch of Cornish game hens with your choice of waffles or fries. Their website says that available hen sauces are Original, Buffalo, Memphis Gold, Spicy Memphis Gold, Real Lemon Pepper, Hawaiian Teriyaki, and Sweet Caribbean Jerk. I’m told that the Memphis Gold is the must-get. The taproom will have its full selection of beers and brunch drinks as well. Brunch drinks include Bloody Beers (Grindhouse Cream Ale paired with your choice of Bloody Mary mix), Beer-itas (Prestige Pilsner + Crazy Good Rita Mix), and Gose-Mosas (Howzit Gose with O.J.)

Sunrise Memphis, the new breakfast joint at 670 Jefferson, posted this:

Brunching with us? We are open all weekend for Breakfast, but unfortunately we can only sell you beer right now. However, we will sell you Bloody Mary mix and carafes of OJ of you brown bag your vodka and sparkling wine. We will honor this until our license becomes available. Thanks for understanding! #seeyouatsunrise #brunchinginmemphis #ilovememphis #choose901 #stjudemarathon #baconfordays

Waiiiit a minute… a place that opens at 5 AM and serves beer? This I must investigate.

Dos Gatos plays a free show tonight at Center for Southern Folkore. 8 PM. Ozzlee Art will be on display.

Hockey fans: Kooky Canuck offers $4.99 34 oz. Yazoo Gerst during Nashville Predators games. Pretty much every seat in the house has a good view of a TV and the Preds are always on when they’re playing.

Holiday treats at Bluff City Coffee!

The University of Tennessee named Phil Fulmer its athletic director yesterday, hopefully putting out the season-long dumpster fire that its football program has become. Or will it?

It was Mueller Time again yesterday! Here’s a copy of the official charge against Michael Flynn. So refreshing to see liars, batshit crazy, and the people who enable their lies start to get their just desserts this month. KARMA! The charges stipulate that a very senior member of Trump’s transition team directed Flynn to talk to the Russians. Know who was a senior member of the transition team? Trump’s son-in-law Jared Kushner. Know who was in charge of the transition team? Vice President Mike Pence. As pro wrestler Goldberg would say, “You’re next!”

Leading off at Blind Bear this morning for Hung Over Like a Bear brunch/D-RANKS with B-RAD. Over to the Downtown Holiday Parade on Beale at 2, then back to the Bear where I will probably run into my friends Rahul and Tony. Last night I was watching a classic comedy segment from the 1990s on YouTube and thought of them.

That’ll do it for now. Back tomorrow with more news.
