If there’s a business Downtown you think would benefit from having a bike corral, you can nominate it to win a free one. Bike corrals provide parking for 10 bikes, while taking up the same amount of space it takes to park one car.

It’s Seamus’ birthday at the Brass Door, and the Irish pub is celebrating with happy hour specials all day. Bingo at 7:30 then $3 wine. San Francisco songwriters Jeff Campbell, Clay Bell and Brad Brooks will perform in The Cavern starting at 9:00, $5 cover. The trio played on WREG Live at 9 this morning.

The Mad Earl will have a beer bust/fundraiser on Friday, April 26 from 5:30 to 8:30 PM, one of the events for the bar’s grand opening weekend. Come in and the Earl will sell you a souvenir cup that you can fill with High Cotton ESB. Money raised will be used to send Val from the Brass Door to Madagascar with Habitat for Humanity.

The South Main Station MPD Precinct will hold a town hall meeting Thursday, April 18 at 6 PM in the Downtown Memphis Commission office at Main and Adams. This is a follow-up to the ward changes that occurred earlier this year, and a chance for the public to voice concerns related to those changes.

After the recent explosions at the Boston Marathon, Memphis in May officials are taking extra precautions to keep everyone safe at Music Fest, BBQ Fest, and Sunset Symphony. Every item brought in can be inspected, and backpacks larger than 12×12 won’t be allowed.

The 2013 Bikes on Beale season kicks off tonight. Starting at 6 PM the street will start filling up with motorcycles.

If you’re a student of the game, there’s a great ESPN article on the Grizzlies’ starting five that you should read. The Grizzlies wrap up the season tonight at home against Utah, a team that is fighting for its life to claim that final playoff berth in the West. Chris Herrington from the Memphis Flyer has all the possible outcomes after the Grizzlies, Nuggets, and Clippers games tonight – who we could be playing in the first round of the playoffs, and whether we would have home court advantage. The Grizzlies will have a fan appreciation party tonight beginning at 5 on the FedExForum Plaza, and the first 5000 fans will receive a free Grizzlies T-shirt. Goooooo Grizzlies!
