Friday update #2 – two more marathon weekend specials

Couple of last-minute items came in:

Virtual golf bar Birdie’s  at 495 S. Main will offer 50% off golf all weekend when you show your St. Jude race credentials. The HERO World Challenge will be on TV for all you St. Jude Heroes to watch.

The Blind Bear has added a fettuccine chicken Alfredo special for those looking to carb up tonight:

The previous post has a complete list of things happening Downtown this weekend for the marathon, holidays, and conference championships.

This isn’t a Downtown event, but it’s Downtown-related and worth a Lyft or Uber: The Memphis Listening Lab at Crosstown Concourse will host a free listening party for the Orpheum’s new album featuring its Wurlitzer organ. There will be copies of the album for sale, refreshments, and a conversation with the group who produced the album. Wednesday, December 6 from 6:30 to 8:30 PM.

Random fact I learned this weekend: Your head is slightly older than your feet

The Downtown YMCA seeks a membership coordinator.

The Blind Bear is having a piano request show with Adam Heart at 10 tonight (Friday). These shows are a lot of fun and I think they’ll have a good crowd tonight. I don’t normally reveal Bear door passwords on my blog, but tonight’s involves a particularly fabulous person, so I’ll make an exception: Tell them “Sharmin sent me” to get in without paying cover. Happy birthday Sharmin!

That’s all. As I explained earlier, I will probably take a day off from blogging tomorrow.
