Saturday update

Saturday is not normally a day when most people think about jobs, yet it’s the day I find myself with a lot of jobs news to pass on. All of the below were posted to social media yesterday.

It’s International Beer and Pizza Day. Best places to celebrate are Slim & Husky’s, Silly Goose, Aldo’s Pizza Pies, and Wiseacre Downtown/Little Bettie.

It’s also Submarine/Hoagie/Grinder Day. River Time Market & Deli in Court Square would be my pick to celebrate that holiday.

And it’s National Chess Day and the Memphis Chess Club on Madison will have an all-day-long celebration.

Learn nightclub two-step tonight in Fourth Bluff Park with a free lesson presented by Cat’s Ballroom. Dance to the music of Al Green, The Drifters, and Smokey Robinson. This is part of a Fall Back dance series, with rumba lessons coming to the park in November and push-pull swing in December.

For those of you who love South Main, here’s your chance to get a South Main address for only $355 a month.

A.W. Willis Ave. is back open following a long period of construction.

Paint Memphis hosts a mural festival today, turning an empty building at B.B. King Blvd. and Georgia Ave. into a work of art. An after-party nearby at Carolina Watershed kicks off at 7 PM.

As I’ve said this week, aluminum prices have been affecting the availability of PBR in Downtown Memphis lately. Local 24 reports that your Thanksgiving dinner could be affected too. If canned goods are part of your Turkey Day plan, you better start looking for them now.

On Saturday, the Orpheum will offer a tour in Spanish of the historic theater as well as games and activities with local Teaching Artists. Sign up for the tour here

Man, I’d like to be a fly on the wall tomorrow evening at Silly Goose when the bartender announces last call at 6:30 PM. That crowd is going to be PISSED.

There are three football games I want to watch at the 11:00 hour: Arkansas-Ole Miss, Oklahoma-Texas, and South Carolina-Tennessee. That rules out Bardog because there aren’t enough TVs. It looks like I’ll be pulling up a barstool at Max’s Sports Bar this morning, and if I leave early enough I can squeeze in a stop at the Farmers Market beforehand. Go Hogs, Boomer Sooner, and Go Gamecocks. Back tomorrow.
