Saturday update

A new restaurant is opening in the South Main district, and though it is new, the owner has a history Downtown. Tamika Heard has opened Butterific Bakery & Cafe, the CA’s Jennifer Chandler reports, at 488 S. Second. Heard is the daughter of the founders of Makeda’s Homemade Butter Cookies, which previously operated in that space. Cookies, sweets, and coffee will be on the menu, as well as lunch offerings. Hours are 7-7 Monday-Friday and 7-9 Saturday.

Momma’s is hiring:

We are now hiring Servers, Bartenders, and Cooks to join our staff! Team-oriented attitude, functionality in a fast-paced environment, willingness to learn, reliable means of transportation, and a smile are essential. Experience preferred.

Apply in person at 855 Kentucky (M-F 9-11 a.m. or 2-4 p.m.). NO PHONE CALLS. Apply to be professional.

Following a spot opening up due to injury, former Grizzly Mike Conley has finally made it to the All-Star Game. Very happy for The Conductor. He deserved to be there years ago.

The CA has an article on the passing of my former student Drew Daniel. Drew was a humble community servant and Tigers fan. Many will miss him. “Politics can get nasty and I’ve never heard him say a bad word about anyone ever,” was a quote one person gave the CA about him, and that is consistent with who I knew Drew to be.

Well, today could be a challenging morning. I have a one-day-only $5 off a purchase of at least $25 from DGX. My concern is, can I actually carry $25 worth of DGX purchases two and a half blocks down Main Street? Their prices are so low, I’ll practically be hauling away the entire store.

Weather today: 58/36, NE wind at 10, 0% chance of rain. To anyone out there thinking, I can show up late to the crawfish boil at Max’s Sports Bar because it’s a bit chilly, WRONG! There could be an ice storm going on and Max’s first crawfish boil of the season would still sell out. Remember I told you about a special guest bartender working today? She told me she’s considering wearing a tube top.

Looking deeper at the weather: Wednesday-Friday of next week the forecast is mid-upper 50s at night and 70s day. Guess I better get 5 days’ worth of writing done by Tuesday so I can be out the latter half of the week.

That’ll do it for this post. Back tomorrow.
