Thur update: Burger news, mahi at Fish, Bon Ton delivering, Riverside closed, Motel Mirrors @ Blind Bear tonight. Eric Hughes/Guy Venable @ Saucer tomorrow, Tim Tebow coming to Memphis

Got a couple of pieces of burger news to kick off this Thursday post. First of all, the burger that won the 2012 Best Memphis Burger Fest is now a permanent fixture on Kooky Canuck’s menu. It’s topped with a fried egg, avocado, BBQ onions, and herb garlic mayonnaise.

Huey’s is having a Design Your Own Burger contest. See the poster below for details (click it to view in a larger size).


More food news: The Flying Fish posted last night that they have added mahi to their menu.

Bon Ton Cafe is now delivering during lunch. Delivery area boundaries are Fourth to the river, Beale to Jefferson. A delivery charge will be included in the final total.

Riverside Drive is closed between Union Ave. and Georgia Ave. for Music Fest.

Motel Mirrors, a side project of Amy LaVere, John Paul Keith, and Shawn Zorn, will perform tonight at the Blind Bear at 10 PM.

If you want to hear some good music Friday night without traipsing through rain and mud, Eric Hughes and Guy Venable play the Flying Saucer at 9 PM. I heard Eric at a wedding reception I attended last year, and thought to myself, “I knew he was good, but I had forgotten he was THAT good.” Highly recommended.

Tim Tebow will be at the FedExForum June 15. His appearance will be part of Agape Child & Family Services’ HeartLight event.

That’s it for now. Quick bowl of chili then back to work. Six and a half business days left until my BBQ Fest vacation.
