The Majestic Grille is gearing up for the next edition of its Supper Club next Tuesday, February 18 at 16 PM, and this time they are doing it Brexit style. The dinner will feature Memphis game cooked in aristocratic British flair, with dishes like Wild Bird Roast, Yorkshire Hotpot, and Sloe Gin Smoked Pheasant. The meal comes with Stiff Upper Lip British cocktails and Old World wines. $75 per person. This will sell out, so if you want to go call 901-522-8555 and make reservations immediately.

The New Hampshire primary is today, and early voting in Tennessee’s primary is tomorrow. I’m starting to come around to Mike Bloomberg as the candidate with the best chance to take down Trump. When asked what he thought about a November presidential election featuring two billionaire candidates, he replied, “Who’s the other billionaire?”
