Fri update: Free Grizzlies swag, run for Boston, own a Gus’s franchise, lots going on tomorrow, SOB rolls out new menu

The Grizzlies are hosting a Playoff Swag Pickup at the FedExForum. Right now through 6 PM today, you can stop by and pick up free posters, headbands, and car flags.

Local TV coverage for the playoff games has been announced. Games 1, 2, and 5 will be on FOX Sports Tennessee, and games 3, 4, and 6 will be on SportSouth. TV to be TBD if a Game 7 is needed.

There’s a run in Overton Park tonight to honor those in Boston. It’s free to run, and donations for the Boston Marathon bombing victims will be accepted.

If you’ve dreamed of owning your own Gus’s, pick up a print copy of the Memphis Business Journal today. The franchise is expanding. In addition to Memphis, stores are open or soon to be open in Nashville, Little Rock, Southaven, and Austin.

There’s a lot going on tomorrow, and I’ll start it off with a highly recommended concert. Muck Sticky performs tomorrow at 7 at the New Daisy. Uber-talented and he just oozes positive energy. How many of us are lucky enough to have a job that can be done in pajama pants?

If you plan on going to see Muck Sticky, why not get to Beale a few hours early? There will be a Corvette show on the street from 8 AM to 4 PM tomorrow.

Lots happening on Mud Island and the Mississippi River tomorrow. One event is the Maria Montessori School Regatta and Duck Race. Kayak and canoe races, 1 and 2 mile courses. The duck race is a rubber ducky race. You can “sponsor” a rubber duck, and if your duck crosses the finish line first, you win $100.

Bass Pro’s Big Cat Quest is tomorrow as well. See who can reel in the biggest catfish on the Mississippi River. $5000 in cash and prizes to be awarded.

Harbor Town Crawfish Festival is tomorrow from 2 to 8 PM.

South of Beale released their new menu yesterday. Visit their website to view it.

Crazy crazy news day and I just don’t have it in me to come up with a clever final paragraph. Quick and nasty Taco Bell lunch, a few more hours at work, then I’ll be out about 5:45.
