One Memphis happens this afternoon in Handy Park at the corner of Beale and B.B. King Blvd. This is an event to bring the community together through the language understood by people of all faiths and backgrounds – music. Come hear many different styles of music to build love, harmony, and a community where all are one. There will be food trucks onsite and this event is free and family friendly.
Beer lovers: Crosstown Brewing Co. will have the release of Peligro, a Mexican imperial chocolate stout, this coming Friday, August 3, from 2 to 10 PM. There will be food from Crosstown Mash-up beginning at 6:00 and The Rusty Pieces will play at 6:30.
Local BBQ team Porkosaurus is about to roll out a new product, a slaw mix. Unlike most slaw mixes, this one does not contain mayonnaise so you do not have to worry about it spoiling. It’s all natural and gluten free. They are rolling it out at a festival in the Bronx this weekend and plan to have it available for sale in the near future.
Jerry Lawler’s Bar & Grill on Beale Street will host a 75th birthday party for “Superstar” Bill Dundee on October 24. Memphis wrestling legends are set to attend, including promoter Jerry Jarrett.
I saw an RIP tweet for a Memphis wrestler, but there are no other similar tweets in the hour since so I am going to assume it’s fake.
Back tomorrow with more news. My regular Sunday bartender B-RAD is on vacation, so I’m going to lead off at Blind Bear and then bounce around a bit. This seems like an especially good Sunday to be at Max’s Sports Bar so I will stop by there when it opens at 4:30.
