Peach cobbler nachos are coming to Downtown Memphis. Chef Tam’s Underground Cafe has been so successful, the Memphis Flyer reports, that a second location will be opened in The Edge District. It will be in the old Quetzal space on Union, not far from Sun Studio. The space is big enough to not only sell food but Chef Tam’s line of spices and general merchandise. Oh, by the way, Chef Tam just introduced a new menu item: apple pie nachos.

I’m about to get on the WWE Network for Super Showdown, an event from Saudi Arabia that is supposed to be pay-per-view quality. I have to say I’m underwhelmed with the card, though. 54-year-old Undertaker will wrestle 52-year-old Goldberg for the first time ever, and for a bad 3-4 minute match they will get paid more than the average person makes in a year. Shane McMahon wrestles Roman Reigns in a match I couldn’t care less about, and Triple H faces Randy Orton for the 5000th time. Ugh. I will watch but I don’t have high expectations.
Back tomorrow with more news.
