Wednesday update

Downtowners are fed up with drag racing, drifting, and reckless driving and are pushing the police to take action, WREG reports. Jerred Price of the Downtown Neighborhood Association met with MPD following an incident last weekend where a cop witnessed a driver doing donuts and made no attempt to pull the car over and issue a ticket.

The DM’s Chris Herrington has a first look at River City Records, which quietly opened last Saturday at 101 S. Main. They have their grand opening this coming Saturday. Owner Chris Braswell was part of the scene at the Antenna Club in the late 1980s and was a buyer for River Records on Highland.

If you’re not sick of reading about COVID in Shelby County yet, this week’s Memphis Flyer has a good cover story on the topic.

The Grizzlies have two new 10-game packs of tickets for the 2021-2022 season. One is all weekend games and includes the No. 50 retirement ceremony for Zach Randolph. The other is all “big games” and includes the No. 9 retirement ceremony for Tony Allen, with his former teammate Mike Conley in the house.

Again, not a real newsy day. Back tomorrow.
