Thursday update

Slider Inn Downtown is celebrating Tennessee Whiskey Week with two cocktails: Gold Rush with Blue Note Bourbon and Sour Cherry Negroni with Old Dominick gin. Get them through Saturday.

There’s Star Wars trivia tonight at 7 at Downtown Slider.

Time for me to get on my soapbox again.

This is looking eastbound on Washington Avenue. The intersection in the background is Danny Thomas. Note how the two Bird scooters are parked on the sidewalk. There is NO WAY someone in a wheelchair could get by.

What makes me mad is, this time I know the people in the wheelchairs. This photo was taken about a block from the Union Mission, where I’d estimate 40-60 of the nightly guests have mobility challenges.

I betcha anything those scooters were parked by teenagers on their way to Wendy’s on the corner. Parents, please teach your kids to be considerate of others.

Today is our friend Nappin’ Ass Nate’s heavenly birthday. There will be a celebration at his favorite place at 5 and Nate’s parents will be there.

Effective July 1, drag racing will become a Class E felony in Tennessee.

Today is International Chardonnay Day.

There will be a Beginners’ Watercolor Class on Riverside Drive on Saturday, June 1.

Archer Malmo seeks an Associate Creative Director – Art Director.
