Thursday update

The results of the Memphis Flyer Best of Memphis 2022 vote are out. Congratulations to Bardog on winning Best Bar!

Speaking of Bardog, look what’s back!

I’ve been told the CDs will be curated by one of the managers and changed out every 2 months. Unfortunately I couldn’t play any tunes on it yesterday because they brought the wrong cord and it wasn’t working.

The Memphis Grizzlies will hold an open practice Sunday, October 9. Things will kick off with a plaza party from 10 AM to noon, then the FedExForum doors will open for a 12:30 PM tip-off. The first 500 fans will get an autographed player photo, and one fan will win season tickets.

K.J. Wild plays the Memphis Farmers Market this Saturday. You don’t have to wait until then to catch this Nashville duo, though – they’ll be on the upper deck of Eight & Sand tonight.

The Downtown holiday tree lighting is set for Saturday, November 19. Every year they put up a 50-foot-tall Christmas tree at Main and Peabody Place.

Wiseacre Downtown will host Rolling Thunder Revue, a tribute to Bob Dylan, on Friday, October 14 at 7 PM.

Tandem Restaurant Partners is hiring. Downtown restaurants they run include Ben-Yay’s, Sugar Grits, Front St. Deli, and Carolina Watershed/Red Bones turkey legs.

Raneem + Better in Color plays the Downtown Slider Inn this Friday for Trolley Night.

RIP Coolio.

There was a possible arson on Mud Island yesterday morning.

Today is National Coffee Day. I recommend celebrating by pouring your coffee down the drain and popping open a Mountain Dew.

That’s it for today. Back tomorrow with more.
