Some random stuff before I head to trivia:

When you pay $11 for that Captain and Coke, ever wonder how much profit the nightclub is making?  Now you can find out.  LifeHacker posted a link to a cocktail cost calculator today that will compute the real price of your drink.

Good quote I saw on Facebook:  “When the power of love overcomes the love of power, the world will know peace.” -Jimi Hendrix.

I’m not in the business of making a whole bunch of New Year’s Eve recommendations, but I am going to make one, because I know first-hand it’s a proven winner.  New Year’s Eve at the Majestic Grille… regular menu at regular prices, no cover, live music, plus a few special dishes that Chef Patrick Reilly plans on whipping up for the occasion.  I’m taking a year off this year, but this is what a large group of us did 2007-2009, and it was a good time.  Elegant but not at all pretentious.  Better call immediately (522-8555) and make reservations if interested.  I saw on Twitter today that they’re almost full.

Hmmm our BBQ team has a Facebook group now.  Prediction: The Nuh-Uh Girl will have a meltdown over this when she returns to Memphis, because no one wanted to do it when she proposed it in early ’08.  Not that it stopped her from coming to our booth and eating nearly everything that wasn’t bolted down this year.

If you like candy, check out this post on Wayne’s Candy on the I Love Memphis blog.  Wayne’s is at Second and Carolina, across from the cash & carry grocery I’ve talked about several times.

On WikiHow today – 5 Steps to Stop Thinking Too Much.  Hey, Brick wrote a wiki article!

For the out-of-towners who are looking for something to do tonight… if I had to make a pick for live music (hard to do on a Tuesday in the winter), I’d go with Kaleidoscope at Alfred’s.  Kaleidoscope is a side project of Richard Cushing of FreeWorld.  I caught them at the DNA/SMA holiday party and they were very good.

All right, time to put the laptop away and get ready for some Rapscallion domination at the final trivia night of ’09.
