Wed update: Curry @ Brass Door, FreeWorld @ Flying Saucer Saturday, new food blog, Eddie Vedder @ Orpheum, Miracle on 34th Street, turkey cooking tip, get rid of viruses

Last night after work I stopped by the Brass Door for their new Tuesday curry night. Every Tuesday they have bowls of curry for $8 after 5 PM, homemade by Diamond Dave.

They offer two options every week, one with meat and a vegetarian curry. I got the rogan josh, a red curry with Diamond Dave made with chicken over rice. Spicy enough to make my nose run, just the way I like it.

Dave gave me a sample of the vegetarian curry, a Bombay aloo which was a yellow curry made with potatoes. It was good too, although being a meat eater I preferred the rogan josh.

Afterward I walked down to the Flying Saucer, where I discovered that live music will make its return Saturday night. FreeWorld will take the stage at 9:30 and there will be no cover.

If you like food blogs, I discovered a good one last weekend. The Monday Lunch Club is written by some Downtowners who live down on the south end. Every Monday they meet for lunch. It’s a fairly new blog but they’ve already hit Uncle Lou’s, Gus’s, and some places in New Orleans. Fun and well written.

Eddie Vedder plays the Orpheum tonight. Tickets are $77.50.

The Majestic Grille will show Miracle on 34th Street on the big screen Sunday night at 7 PM. Reservations are highly recommended; call 901-522-8555 for reservations.

Couple of Lifehacker articles I saw today that seemed worth sharing:

Office closes at 3 today, so I’ll be at the Saucer at 4 for happy hour. It’s their Turkey of the Year glass night at 7. Not sure if I’ll be playing trivia at Blind Bear tonight (or if they’re even having it) but regardless, I’ll be in there at some point later in the evening.
