I just finished my third Squidoo article, or “lens” as they’re called on that site. I had previously written a tutorial on left and right English in pool to complement the training materials I sell in my online store How to Learn Pool. Well, now I went back and added a second tutorial, on top and bottom English, or follow and draw as they’re more commonly known. You can use follow and draw to control where the cue ball ends up after it strikes the ball at which you’re shooting. This allows you to set up your next shot and run the table. Check out the new tutorial on draw and follow here.
Here’s a link to a Squidoo article I really like that I didn’t create: An argument over which is better, tofu or bacon. Needless to say, I vote for bacon! (Health guru AL groans. Don’t forget to send me questions for our new regular feature, “Dear Health Guru AL.”)
Calhoun’s Sports Bar & Grill on GE Patterson has changed their happy hour. Now, between 4:30 PM and 7 PM Monday-Friday, they’re doing buy one, get one free domestic bottles. Yet another great happy hour in Downtown Memphis!
Word is that RiverArtsFest, the fall arts festival in the South Main district, will undergo some changes for its second year, according to the Memphis Business Journal. The fest will be held November 1-2 this year, and this year the north boundary of the festival will be extended a block farther, to the 500 block of South Main (it was GE Patterson last year). Over 240 artists have applied for booths already. Local artist George Hunt will be designing the festival poster, and they’ll have an opening night party October 31 at the National Civil Rights Museum.
Art on Tap, the beer tasting/fundraiser for the Dixon Gallery and Gardens, has been announced for 2008. It will be Friday, September 5 from 6 to 9 PM. Disco band Dr. Zarr’s Amazing Funk Monster will perform, and they are promising “more food” and “more beer” this year. Tickets will be available on the Dixon’s website as the time grows closer. If you’re a member of their Young At Art program, you get into Art on Tap and 9 more events for free.
Today I read on the New York Times’ site that the city of San Francisco plans to bestow a very much deserved honor upon our President, George W. Bush. Upon his retirement from office January 20, 2009, the city wants to rename a water treatment plant on the shoreline the George W. Bush Sewage Plant. I can’t think of a more appropriate way to honor the man who has changed this country in so many ways over the past 8 years.
This is an evening post, but it isn’t a drunk post because I haven’t been out yet. Went to AutoZone (yes, I did business with the evil empire, forgive me) and bought a new brake light and a screwdriver to install it. If I can’t figure it out myself, my BFF Suzy says she knows how. Then I went to Ike’s and bought mixers for TubeTopalooza. It’s only 10 PM and I may still go out yet, as I believe my favorite blogger/MILF is somewhere Downtown, and hopefully she has a tube top on. Time to hit Publish and get out there…
