Tonight I’m going to try something different on a Wednesday night. I’m going to head south to the Loft Bar at the Double J for poker night with Muruako at 8:30. Usually I do trivia on Wednesdays, but I’ve been promising myself that one of these Wednesdays, I’d take the night off and go play at the J. This is the night! Muruako hosts Monday poker at the Silly Goose which I play regularly, so I know it will be a fun game down south. South Mainers: Come out and play!
Hmmm… you know what’s not far from Double J? Central BBQ. Maybe I’ll head south an hour early. I’ve had their wings and pulled pork, but I’ve heard I really need to try their brisket plate and their turkey plate.
Now that Best Memphis Burger Fest is over, Seth is back on the Best Memphis Burger blog making up for lost time. His post this morning covered 11 burgers.
The All Pink Party is tonight at the Silly Goose. Liquor & wine tasting, new appetizer tasting, entry into drawing for prizes all included in your ticket cost of $25. Details here. Party is at 8:30.
Also tonight, there’s a public meeting for people interested in learning more about Main Street infrastructure improvements. There’s a $30 million grant to improve Main Street and make a pedestrian path to Arkansas across the Harahan railroad bridge. Meeting is at One Commerce Square, southeast corner of Main and Monroe, from 5:30 to 6:30 in the basement auditorium. More info here.
Tomorrow, Thursday, October 25 is AutoZone Park’s annual World Series game watch party. They’ll have Game 2 on inside the club level and on their new video board. Free to watch, and you can purchase a food buffet for $7 in advance, $10 (cash only) at the door. Beer and wine will be available for purchase as well.
Shelton Clothiers has fleece Pink Pig jackets for sale in charcoal, cream, and Tiger blue. WANT. Coming to see you soon Tom.
Tube top news: Now that’s she’s had the baby, Snooki is showing everyone that she’s back in shape by wearing a tube top. Details here.
Last night I was in the Flying Saucer when their trivia night started. I didn’t play but I notice they’ve improved it significantly. They now have the questions on both big screens, inside at the bar and outside in the Garden. So you can sit anywhere you want now and still be able to play. They’ve improved their sound system too.
That’s all for now. Hope to see you at the Double J tonight.
