Wednesday update

This is going to be a fairly short one, folks. Didn’t sleep well last night.

TopGolf has been researching sites Downtown for a possible Memphis location, including the former home of the Commercial Appeal at 495 Union. The company is said to strongly prefer Downtown or Midtown for its Memphis location, as opposed to East Memphis or the ‘burbs. The trouble is, in Downtown it is hard to find a 10-12 acre space, which is the size they need. For those of you not familiar, TopGolf is a chain restaurant/event venue where you can play a variety of golf games, using real clubs and balls, on simulated courses. There are golf lessons offered as well as golf leagues. They have a full menu and the space is available to rent out for parties.

Every Memphis 901 FC home game, the Bluff City Mafia marches over from the Brass Door and they do a guitar smash by a local celebrity. Tonight’s guitar smash for the game vs. Nashville will be done by none other than Memphis Tigers men’s basketball coach and NBA legend Penny Hardaway.

There’s now a local meal kit delivery service called Fix, reports The Daily Memphian. Unlike the nationwide services, you don’t have to have a subscription; you simply order the meals when you want them.

I’m done. See, I told you this would be a short post! Back tomorrow with more news.
