TV series Bluff City Law starring Jimmy Smits, which has been filming in Memphis the past several months, will premiere Monday, September 23 at 9 PM. To celebrate, the Downtown Memphis Commission is setting up a giant watch party in Court Square from 8 to 10 that evening. A DJ will spin for the first hour of the party, then it’ll be time to watch the show on the big screen. The Stix and Stickem food trucks will be there, and beer and wine will be available for purchase. Also on site: Pop-a-Roos gourmet popcorn, MEMPopS, Walking Pants Curiosities, and Rachel’s Salon and Day Spa.

As the name suggests, kittens walk around while you do yoga, and all of them will be adoptable. More info/tickets

Early voting begins Friday. Here’s a list of locations. Since Strickland refused to debate, I am going to do as I said last week and cast my early vote for Tami Sawyer. Downtowners, the Shelby County Office Building at 157 Poplar is your closest location.

I got to try another of the new Silly Goose pizzas last night:
This is The Sancho: duck, cream sauce, mozzarella, chipotle, tasso ham from Pontotoc Lounge, sweet drop peppers, lime zest, and green onions. This was extremely tasty and my second favorite after The Big Cheese. It’s going on the regular menu soon.
That’s all for now. Time to go to work. Back soon with more news.
