BBQ Fest: No official word yet

This week I’ve been getting emails and Facebook messages asking what I’ve heard about BBQ Fest. If the river gets too high, i.e. if it’s likely to hit 46 feet and flood Tom Lee Park, Memphis in May will have to come up with a contingency plan. I’ve heard rumors of what they might do, but I’m not going to publish them until I see an official statement from Memphis in May. Enough people read this blog that I could cause significant trouble for MiM if I put incorrect information out there. So for now, mum’s the word. Sorry.

How about those GRIZZLIES!!!!!! I guarantee you one thing, Zach Randolph will never be overlooked for All-Star status again. Most experts picked the Spurs to win in 6, and instead it was the Grizzlies sending the Spurs home in that amount. Way to defend the home court guys! According to the CA, Round 2 Game 1 will be at Oklahoma City at noon Sunday. Dammit, that’s going to cut into my Music Fest people-watching. I’ll watch it either at the FedExForum watch party (I assume they’ll have one) or at the Saucer (they got the problem with the game sound fixed and had it on last night).

Yesterday was both a happy and a sad day for me, as I cashed out my PokerStars account. Happy, because I never thought I’d see that money again after the FBI busted Stars. Sad, because I’ve had a lot of fun playing on that site the past two years, and now it’s come to an end. Searching for another online poker network… looking at Cake Poker, Titan Poker, and Doyle’s Room as options. Anyone got experience with any of these, or any of the other poker rooms that still accept US players?

Had a good night walking around and watching the freak show last night. Call-a-Cabs are magically delicious. I’ll be out again today, mostly wandering Main and Beale with occasional stops at the Saucer. I haven’t totally dismissed the idea of buying a ticket and going to Music Fest, with the weather expected to be nice today.

Time to get in the shower then head outside for more people-watching… if anything particularly interesting happens I’ll try to stop by home and do a post.
