Felicia Willett-Schuchardt, the owner of Felicia Suzanne Restaurant, dropped a shocking piece of news on social media Saturday: 20 years after construction began on the Brinkley Plaza location, the restaurant is moving. Michael Donahue has a report in the Memphis Flyer. The new restaurant will be in Memphis but she won’t yet say where.
The Daily Memphian has more on the shift of Raymond James Tower to residential. That was not the owner’s original desire, the DM reports, but multiple brokers told him it would not be feasible to lease the entire building as commercial space.
I got a tip this weekend that Max’s Sports Bar now has White Russian slushies. Yum! (The tipster, by the way, was the same person who told me about the police action at Flava House. If you don’t know about that, keep scrolling down to my Sunday update post.)
It’s National Pepperoni Pizza Day, and there are a number of good options. Silly Goose, Slim & Husky’s, Aldo’s Pizza Pies, and Little Bettie inside Downtown Wiseacre can take care of you.
Don’t forget that you can catch a free performance of King Henry VI: The Wars of the Roses by Tennessee Shakespeare Company tonight at Downtown Wiseacre.
Professionals’ networking group The Link Up Memphis will have a networking event at Grind City Brewery tonight 6:30-8:30.
That’s it for today’s post. Again, if you haven’t read about the recent police action on the block of Main between Union and Gayoso, keep scrolling for Sunday’s post.
