Saturday update

First of all, I owe an apology to the folks at Cafe Keough. I said yesterday on the blog that I’d go there after work. However, I had friends from out of town, two of my favorite former Downtown Memphians, text me to tell me they were in town for the evening and asked if I wanted to meet up. So I went to the Saucer and Goose with them, since those were our stomping grounds when they lived here. Sorry for not making it in to give Keough a try, and I promise I’ll be in the place next week if not sooner.

I did my Saturday morning grocery run to City Market not long ago, and I noticed that I usually walk right by the metal shelves across from the cash register without ever stopping to notice what’s on those shelves. Some of the most interesting items in the store are there. One item I noticed, which I had never even heard of before, was seaweed snacks. They still have the masala peanuts in stock, and Nikki’s Hot Ass Chips which I mentioned earlier this week are in that area too. If you have a habit of walking right by the way I do, stop and take a look next time. You’re missing out on some good stuff.

As I expected, Zach Randolph got fined $25,000 by the NBA for his public comments about the bad officiating in Thursday’s Grizzlies-Rockets game.

Today’s a basketball doubleheader at the FedExForum: The Memphis Tigers host Jackson State at 11 AM, and the Memphis Grizzlies have Denver at 7 PM.

The Flying Saucer is having a Hawaiian shirt party tonight at 9. They’re bringing back live music for one evening only, and FreeWorld will take the stage.

That’s all the news for now. I’m off to my usual Saturday morning visit to Bardog.
