Tuesday update

Sorry for no post yesterday. It’s been a slow news week.

Grizzlies host the Chicago Bulls tonight at 7. TV: Bally Sports South

The Brooklyn Nets’ star point guard Kyrie Irving has been traded to the Dallas Mavericks. That’s not good for Memphis because Dallas is in our division. Now we’ll play against Kyrie more often.

OH DEAR GOD… King Willie has joined the race for Memphis mayor. Strickland is term limited and can’t run again. Herenton is 2 years older than Joe Biden.

Speaking of the president, he gives his State of the Union speech tonight.

Cocozza made an interesting announcement yesterday:

Cin! Cin! Our very first Aperitivo Hour has begun! Try one of our Bar Snacks like our Antipasti Panino pictured here. Coppa, asiago, grilled eggplant, roasted red peppers on grille focaccia. Delish! Just $3.

$6 Scarpetta Wines $4 Perionis $8 Spritz Special Bar Snacks $3 each or 4 for $10

I’m gonna find out if the Apertivo Hour is an everyday thing, a Monday thing, or a one-off. Check back for updates.

Rain is in the forecast this afternoon and evening but it’ll be warm. High 68, low 48. Both of those are almost 15 degrees above normal.

They paved paradise and put up a parking lot. RIP (for now), Grand Hyatt.

That’s it. Back tomorrow if it’s not another slow news day.
