Tue update: Pera-Jordan challenge, busy night Downtown tonight, CY Beerfest sold out, free shredding, ballet Groupon, Bardog hearse giveaway

Grizzlies owner Robert Pera has challenged Michael Jordan to a game of one-on-one for $1 million going to charity. No word on if Jordan has accepted.

The Grizzlies play a home pre-season game vs. the Milwaukee Bucks tonight at 7. It’s also the first night of Buddy – The Buddy Holly Story at the Orpheum (runs through Sunday), so traffic will be heavy Downtown this evening.

Tickets for the 4th annual Cooper-Young Regional Beerfest have sold out. Not surprised since it’s such a great festival. Glad I bought my ticket last week. See you Saturday!

Once a year, there is free shredding in the parking lot of the Commercial Appeal at 495 Union, and Saturday is the day. From noon to 5 PM you can bring up to five boxes or bags of documents to be shredded, and you don’t even have to leave your car. Info here.

There ‘s a Groupon for Moscow Ballet’s performance of The Nutcracker at the Cannon Center Friday, November 22. Get tickets for 50% off. There are three seating options.

I got by Bardog last night and took photos of the hearse to be given away at 11:59 PM October 31, and details of what you have to do for a chance to win.

While at Bardog last night, my friends and I managed to run the place completely out of PBR. Not sure if they re-stocked this morning.

That’s the news for now. Back to training. I’ll be out at the usual spots after work.
