Tuesday update

All right, folks. Let’s see how well you know me. It’s 29 and wet outside. What footwear am I gonna wear when I go out today?

a) A pair of rubber winter boots
b) Sneakers with thick soles to handle slippery surfaces
c) A pair of slide sandals with a hole in them

But seriously, folks, winter weather will be an issue today. Follow @memphisweather1 on Twitter for updates.

Whose company has already announced it will be closed for the day? And if so, who’s going to Bardog this morning? $2 Fireball when it’s snowing and we turn The Price Is Right on at 10, sometimes with sound.

Blind Bear experimented with a couple of dishes yesterday, fried pickles and meatloaf. Jeannette indicated she wants to take the place back toward more of a classic bar menu. I like that idea.

New shot: The Angry Ball. It’s part Angry Orchard, part Fireball.

Today is Brandy Alexander Day. The lobby bar at the Peabody makes a good one. I drank one with my friend Terance (RIP) there on Christmas Eve 2004.

Check out Good Morning America tomorrow for a segment with Alcenia’s owner B.J. Chester-Tamayo.

RIP Cindy Williams AKA Shirley from Laverne & Shirley.

An emergency warming center is open at 190 Mill in The Pinch.

There will be country music bingo at STIX on February 9.

That’s it for this post. Tomorrow will be a day to celebrate, so check back.
