Fri update: Walrus @ Slim’s, Dempseys @ Huey’s Sun, Calhoun’s bracket challenge, SMA recycling locations

Tonight is the first live band night at Automatic Slim’s under the new ownership.  Walrus takes the stage around 11, and Michael Patrick’s late night menu will be in place from 10 to 3.

The Dempseys play Huey’s on Sunday.  This is one of several Downtown dates the Dempseys will have next week.  I never miss their Downtown Huey’s shows… without a doubt the best place to catch them.

Calhoun’s is doing an NCAA bracket challenge.  From March 15 to March 18, every time you buy a premium beer (Guinness, any Ghost River, Stella, IPA, Fat Tire) you get a bracket to fill out.  The winning bracket will be announced after the tournament is over, and will receive a $100 bar tab.  Sounds like a great deal for those who drink premium beer… I’m a PBR drinker so I likely won’t have any bracket entries at all.

Yesterday I posted about the drive to recycle old cell phones and injket and laser print cartridges as a fundraiser for the South Main Association.  You can bring those items to any SMA meeting (including the one at Circa on the 10th).  However, if you can’t make it to a meeting, there are also drop-off locations at the Westin Hotel just south of Beale, Bank Tennessee at 30 N. Second, or at Bluff City Coffee at 505 S. Front.  Interesting fact:  Each recycled laser cartridge saves a half-gallon of oil.

That’s all for now… gonna play online poker ’til 8 then head out, probably to the Saucer, then to Slim’s and the Tap Room.
