Thursday update

Memphis Farmers Market has announced its annual Turkey Day Market for this Saturday, November 18 (my birthday!!!) from 9 AM to 1 PM. Not only will you be able to buy Thanksgiving dinner fixings from area farmers, but you’ll also be able to start early on your Christmas shopping. Local artisans will be on hand with crafts, art, and jewelry to sell.

Folks from the Cossitt Library will be at the Market for Story Time from 11 AM to 1 PM Saturday. The Market is at the corner of Front and G.E. Patterson under the pavilion, behind the Power House movie theater.

Action News 5 interviewed the Cossitt Library’s Chef Eli about this Saturday’s Eat This Book Festival.

A mixed-use 8-story high rise has been proposed for 500 Beale. That would be between Danny Thomas and Lauderdale. The location is currently a vacant lot.

It’s Red Cup Day at Starbucks. Order a handcrafted holiday beverage and get the 2023 edition reusable cup. Order in person, on the Starbucks app, or through DoorDash or Uber Eats.

Marathonfoto seeks a photographer for the upcoming St. Jude Marathon.

Megabus has discontinued its service from other cities to Memphis.

Today is Nouveau Beaujolais Day.

Also it’s Have a Party with Your Bear Day.

And it’s National Fast Food Day.  I recommend a 6-pack of Chili Cheese Pups from Krystal to celebrate.

Ugh.. Tennessee Sen. Marsha Blackburn has been mentioned as a potential vice-presidential pick alongside the Trumpster for 2024.

That’s it. Fairly short post today. Back tomorrow.
