Happy Memorial Day! If you’re looking for something to do this afternoon, the Redbirds have a 1:05 matinee game. If you show a Chick-Fil-A value meal receipt, you can receive $6 off the ticket price today. There are also specials for the joint purchase of a ticket and a Malibu can cocktail. Opponent is the Round Rock Express and gates open at 12.
Another option is the grill-out on Twilight Sky Terrace, the lounge atop the Madison Hotel. From 11 to 4 they’ll be grilling burgers and dogs. The regular menu will be available too.
The big event of the day, of course, happens at the FedExForum tonight at 8. Western Conference Finals Game 4, Grizzlies vs. Spurs. No team has ever come back from down 3 in a conference final series. Therefore, the beginning of history being made starts tonight. As usual, I will be at the Blind Bear watching the game. Go Grizzlies!
