Tue update: State of Downtown speech, find unadvertised jobs, BBQ calendar, open letter to bad tippers, and more

One of the best ways to find out what’s going on in Downtown Memphis is to attend Paul Morris’ annual State of Downtown speech. Paul Morris, who runs DMC, will give the annual equivalent of the president’s State of the Union speech at the January South Main Association meeting. It will be next Tuesday, January 14, at Grawemeyer’s at 520 S. Main. 6:00 social, 6:30 meeting. Free for SMA members, $10 for non-members. There will be appetizers compliments of the restaurant and a cash bar.

Here’s a calendar of BBQ competitions around the world. It includes festivals in Puerto Rico and Belgium. Of course, Memphis in May BBQ Fest is on the calendar.

From the Huffington Post: An open letter to bad tippers. If you’re the type of person who rounds a $65 bill up to $70, you need to read this.

Shout-out to everyone attending the rally to save AutoZone Park going on right now. Wish I could be there with you… wait, it’s 21 outside, maybe I don’t. They were serving free Cokes, hot chocolate, cookies, and hot dogs. Free food? Wonder if the Nuh-Uh Girl showed up.

If nothing comes up, I’ll check out Cafe Keough tonight after work, after my plans to visit a week ago went off track. I’ll probably play poker at Blind Bear tonight (after all I am the defending champion), but will probably arrive a bit late after the official 8 PM starting time. Happy Tuesday everyone and go Grizzlies in tonight’s home game.
