The June South Main Association member meeting has been announced for Rizzo’s by Michael Patrick on Tuesday, June 11, social at 6:00, presentation at 6:30. An incorrect date was emailed earlier and in the correction, the SMA noted that the meeting is always the second Tuesday of the month. The meeting is free for members and $10 for guests. Details about this month’s meeting topic are coming soon.
There’s an accounts payable associate job available at Jack Morris Auto Glass out in Midtown. Great family company. It’s run by Paul Morris who used to run DMC.
This is very cool: Later this month, Jupiter and Earth will reach their closest point to each other. At that time you will be able to see some of Jupiter’s moons using only binoculars.
NBA sources told ESPN that former Memphis Grizzlies coach Lionel Hollins will be hired as an assistant coach by the Los Angeles Lakers. That’s a good hire. There has been a lot of drama in the Lakers’ front office lately and Hollins is a no-drama kind of guy.
R&B band The Garry Goin Group, also known as G3, headlines the Peabody rooftop party this evening. They played the Peabody’s New Year’s Eve party this year. $10 to get in, $20 VIP. Admission includes a buffet of popcorn shrimp, cocktail sauce and hushpuppies. If you’re in VIP you get a second buffet of tempura shrimp with sweet chili sauce, bacon wrapped scallops, and crab dip with fried pita.
Pints for Prostates is once again partnering with the Flying Saucer. Every Wednesday evening in June, you can enter for a chance to win a trip to Colorado for the Great American Beer Festival, including invitations to rare beer tastings. I know people who have gone to this, and saying you’re a guest of the Saucer tends to open a lot of doors to private brewery events.
Memphis Grilled Cheese Fest is making its return on Sunday, November 10. Teams will compete to see who has the best grilled cheese in Memphis. Tickets are $5 general admission, but I’d recommend going for the VIP ticket with unlimited grilled cheese samples.
The three-point line is moving in college basketball. Having been 20’9″ this past season, it will move to 22’1.75″ for 2019-20. That matches the three-point line in international FIBA competition.
There’s a Windows vulnerability so bad that the NSA is begging you to update.
Jeeps on Beale happens for the first time tonight.
One of the other BBQ teams recently did a paella party to wrap up their year. We were doing paella parties back in 2012. Nice to see other teams starting to catch up.
Queen Elizabeth wore a ruby tiara to her state dinner with Donald Trump. The tiara was a gift from Burma and is said “to ward off evil.” LOL! More and more I’m becoming a big fan of the Queen.
That’s it for now. I guess today’s post wasn’t late after all. Back tomorrow with more news.
