The big news Downtown is that City Market opens today! Located at the corner of Main and Union, City Market is the Downtown core’s newest grocery and deli. It will be open until 10 Monday-Saturday night which is great news. It’s also great news for people who keep health-conscious diets, as the shelves will contain products you might find at Whole Foods or Fresh Market. It’s owned by Sunny and Hamida Pirani, two super nice people who I’ve had the pleasure of knowing for a couple of years. Please come support them! Here’s a Commercial Appeal article about the new market. I haven’t been by yet but will probably stop in tomorrow.
One thing I forgot to mention when I posted about everything going on Saturday… if you come to South Main for the Rock’n’Romp or the holiday parade, stop by 517 S. Main between 3 and 9 PM for a Christmas bazaar featuring handmade goods by local vendors. It’s presented by Indie Style Market.
I have to laugh at a position @tmj_mem_jobs tweeted yesterday. There’s a Specimen Management Representative job open at Concentra. I recognized that name immediately because it’s where I had to go to take my drug test for my current job. Well, I guess it’s the type of job where no one could blame you if you got really pissy at work.
Don’t forget that it’s open house night at Shelton Clothiers and Christine by Shelton tonight from 5 to 9. Chair massages from Mona Spa, 20% off everything in the store, get a $25 gift card free when you buy a $50 card. Giveaways, food, wine. Free food? Wonder if the Nuh-Uh Girl will show up.
Trying to decide what to do tonight… there’s a WordPress meetup at Republic Coffee at 6 PM. My friend Otto (Otto42 in the WordPress community) is trying to talk me into going. Hmmm… could do that… then again it is poker night at Max’s Sports Bar… or I could always go to the Saucer and do the usual. Lots of options.
Right now it’s lunchtime though. Hungry for Mexican.
