I saw an interesting Twitter account today – @foodiememphis. The bio for the account reads, “Open dinner group for Memphians or visitors, looking for interesting company & great food. Promoting unity & local restaurants, 1 passed dinner plate @ a time.” Sounds good. I followed it. Apparently this is a pretty new Twitter account. They’re having their first meetup at Fuel tonight.
Tomorrow is the last night for Bikes on Beale, where motorcycle enthusiasts bring their rides to Beale and park on the street. Friends of mine who ride motorcycles and scooters have a lot of fun at this, so come check it out if you own one.
Lansky 126 tweeted that they are hiring a full-time sales associate. This would be a great opportunity for someone wanting a career in retail. Not only would you be surrounded by the history of the Peabody and the Lansky clothing line, but you’d get to learn from the Lansky family who are some of the best salespeople around. E-mail firstname.lastname@example.org for more info.
Here’s a Memphis Flyer article about the Cooper-Young Regional Beerfest to happen October 9. I have my ticket. Do you?
Also on the Flyer’s website: Downtown Dining Week returns November 15-21. You’ll be able to get a three-course meal at some of Downtown’s nicest restaurants for only $20.10. That’s up a penny from last year, but you know, inflation. As soon as the CCC get’s this year’s DDW site up, I’ll link to it and we can see what the choices are. At the risk of sounding like the Nuh-Uh Girl, that’s my birthday week, who’s buying me dinner?
The Grizzlies will have a free public practice Sunday. Fan Fest with the Grizz Girls and kids’ activities 1 to 2, practice 2 to 3, and afterward players, coaches, and front office people will answer questions and sign autographs. More details here.
That’s all for the afternoon recap… gotta copy some photos to a memory stick, then it’s time for trivia at the Saucer.
