Mon update 2: Infused alcohol, Alannah’s Groupon, Tamp and Tap, State of Mongo Address, CBBQ

At lunchtime I posted about a decision by the Alcoholic Beverage Commission to start enforcing a 2006 law banning infused alcohol. Now The Tennessean is reporting that the ABC has reversed that decision and will not prohibit infusions. Good call.

There’s a current Groupon for Alannah’s Breakfast Kafe on North Main Street. Two options: $7 for $14 worth of food, or $20 for $42 worth of food.

The Tamp and Tap Room, the new coffee and beer bar soon to open in Van Vleet Flats, reports that its baristas have been in Chicago. They’ve been training in Latte Art at Metropolis Roastery, and will soon get to show off their skills.

Prince Mongo, the spirit from the planet Zambodia who has run for mayor of Memphis on several occasions, will give his annual “State of the Mongo” address Saturday at noon. Hear it on AM 560/FM 87.7 on MemphiSport Live.

Central BBQ (all three locations) will be closed Monday, July 1 all day. In other news, I’ve heard that Downtown Central has a couple of locally brewed High Cotton beers for the next couple of weeks.

The Nuh-Uh Girl (last seen on this blog in a tube top) texted me tonight and told me poker night at the Mad Earl is definitely worth checking out. 6:30 and 8:30 Mondays.

Home after Pint Nite at the Saucer. I stopped by Blind Bear where Ruffin cooked me some excellent blackened fish with sides of pepper jack mac & cheese and green beans. Few more bites then off to bed.
