Tonight is South Main Trolley Tour. Here are a few things I’ve heard will be going on at South Main businesses tonight:
– Clothing boutique Sache will give out samples of Shock Top and Shock Top IPA.
– The Blues Foundation’s office will be open tonight from 6 to 9. They invite everyone to come check out their new merchandise and see the plans for the new Blues Hall of Fame.
– Grace Askew performs at Double J SmokeHouse and Saloon, 6 to 10. Mark “Mule Man” Massey takes the stage at 10.
– $5 photo booth at Reel 2 Reel Photography
– Max’s Sports Bar begins serving liquor tonight
I have one quick stop to make on the way, but I hope to make it to Trolley Tour by 7:30 at the latest. In particular I want to check out new restaurant Grawemeyer’s.
MIFA invites everyone to their Day of Reflection and Service tomorrow, Saturday March 31, honoring the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. The event will be held at MIFA headquarters at 910 Vance. It kicks off at 8:30 with assignment of volunteer projects and complimentary continental breakfast. (Free food? Wonder if the Nuh-Uh Girl will show up.) At 10 there will be an awards presentation, and a keynote address by the winner of MIFA’s 2012 teen oratorical contest. Also, from 9 to noon the UT College of Pharmacy Health and Wellness Fair will be happening at the event site. More info here.
Today is National Cleavage Day. As the creator of Tube Top Month, I fully support this.
Earlier this week I was looking at the Flying Saucer’s menu, and noticed that they’ve replaced the build-your-own slice with a build-your-own pizza. You get 3 toppings for $9.99. I didn’t measure it but it looks like it’s about 10″.
You can now wipe your butt with your own tweets. No kidding. There’s a company that will print your Twitter posts on four rolls of toilet paper for $35.
1 BR/1 BA loft for rent on Riverside Drive. All the amenities. I know the landlord and have no doubt he takes good care of his tenants.
Foursquare users who live or work out east: Usually drive-by checkins are frowned upon, but in one case, they are encouraged. Check in at LunaWeb at 5180 Park and $5 will be donated to Mid-South Spay & Neuter Services. One checkin per day counts.
Worst tweet of the day: “Karaoke for all the bars in 38103 #wheniwinthelottery.” Well, that’s one way to get me to move out of Downtown.
That’s all for now. See you on South Main tonight.
