Thur update: South Main article, youth hostel, Peabody rooftop party, Morrissey, Pink Pig Apparel pop-up, parking scammers

If you didn’t get a chance to pick up a Memphis Flyer yesterday and read the cover story on South Main, you can read it here. Absolutely fantastic article. The best news? Bud Chittom is planning not only two new restaurants in the building behind Earnestine & Hazel’s on G.E. Patterson, but a youth hostel in the building behind that. A hostel is badly needed Downtown. Hopefully it will attract an international crowd, like maybe some ROMANIAN girls!!!!!!!! ♥♥♥♥♥

The Molly Ringwalds with special guest Katy Tiz headline the Peabody rooftop party tonight. Doors open at 6. $10 admission, but ladies and hotel guests can get in free before 7. Admission includes a buffet of red beans, smoked sausage, rice, and catfish dip. If you’re in VIP there’s a second buffet of shrimp remoulade shooters, fried oyster mini po’boys, and chicken & sausage jambalaya.

My “DAWG” John D will kill me if I don’t mention this: Morrissey plays the Orpheum Tuesday night.

Pink Pig Apparel is having a pop-up shop for Sunset Symphony. Clothing featuring the brand, formerly available at Shelton Clothiers, will be sold at the corner of Mina and Tennessee, near the Butler Park entrance, from 2:30 to 6 PM Saturday. Performance T’s, vintage T’s, and caps will be for sale.

Scammers are targeting parkers Downtown. This is not a new thing. Ask any attendant who tries to charge you for company ID if you aren’t sure.

That’ll wrap it up for this Thursday. Tube Top Month is a day away! Time to get excited!
