Tuesday update

Oops, I forgot the word “Monday” in my Monday update post yesterday. Hopefully everyone figured it out.

Three armed robberies were reported on Mud Island over the weekend on Nextdoor. Two happened at the Riverset apartments and one happened in the parking lot across from Riverset. The times listed were Saturday at 6:30 AM, Saturday at 8:00 PM, and Sunday at 10:45 AM. If you live on the Island and see anything suspicious, do not hesitate to call 545-COPS and report it.

River Time Market and Deli on Court Square has announced new fall hours. They are 8:30 AM to 3:00 PM Monday through Saturday.

From the MBJ: The Memphis Clover Club will open in the former 3rd & Court space and the lounge in its basement. It’s being opened by Tim Quinn, who recently took over ownership of Downtown Local. The food will be “international Southern fusion” and they have hired musician Rodd Bland to be the entertainment director.

Memphis made the list of Reader’s Digest 20 Romantic Getaways.

From Food & Wine: Tater tots are finally getting the festival they deserve

There will be a ribbon-cutting for chiropractic clinic Memphis Spine & Sport tomorrow at noon.

The DM reports that 114 N. Main, the building in which the Downtown Memphis Commission resides, is set for commercial renovation.

Two Girls and a Whip is back, this time as a bakery, and with new “girls.” Its owners are part of the group that also owns The Vault, Earnestine & Hazel’s, Paramount, and Backlot.

The National Civil Rights Museum will celebrate its 30th anniversary with free admission this Saturday.

Is it too early in the week to look at college football matchups of interest to Memphians this weekend? I don’t think so.

  • 12 Notre Dame vs. 18 Wisconsin, neutral-site game at Soldier Field in Chicago, 11 AM, FOX

A cold front moves through today. The MemphisWeather.net forecast has rain and storms becoming likely this afternoon, followed by a very pleasant low of 59. After that we’ve got three days of 70s highs/50s lows.

The recently-renovated Renasant Convention Center is experiencing some major electrical issues. They better get those fixed pronto, because the annual AutoZone sales convention will bring 3000 people to the convention center next week.

The annual Memphis Bacon & Bourbon Festival happens Friday at the Metal Museum. Bacon-inspired dishes and plenty of bourbons to sample… what’s not to love? A part of the proceeds will benefit the Memphis Farmers Market.

This season’s Memphis Songwriters Series, hosted by Mark Edgar Stuart, kicks off Thursday at the Halloran Centre. The performers will be Kina del Mar, Kyndie Wylde, and Joshua Cosby.

That’s it for today. It’s 9:42 as I type this and it looks like an outflow boundary from the cold front, with some intense storms, will be here in about half an hour. Grab an umbrella! I may take a day off from blogging tomorrow but I’ll be back with more no later than Thursday.
