Thur update #2: Tin Roof to take Hard Rock space, how Orpheum shows get here, Tigers football, trolley line ridership, 2015 Beerknurd calendar

The MBJ reports that a Nashville-based bar will take over 315 Beale, the space formerly occupied by Hard Rock Cafe which is moving down the street. Tin Roof is a chain of bars known for Tex-Mex food and live music.

The Orpheum has a good blog post explaining the steps a show takes to get from Broadway to Beale.

Dates and times have been released for several Memphis Tiger football games including a game vs. Tulsa on ESPN2 Halloween at 7 PM. No offense to the Tigers but I will be too busy watching skimpy tube top costumes that evening to pay much attention to the game.

Trolley line ridership is down more than 50 percent since green MATA buses replaced the trolleys.

The Flying Saucer invites all Beerkurds to submit photos for the 2015 calendar.

Hey Squeal Street BBQ team: Now that the blogger who was so complimentary of you has found a job, maybe he’ll have the money to join your team for 2015. Just think, he’ll be there all day, every day! Have fun with that, guys! You might find a Best Booth trophy and a Best Microwave Popcorn trophy in the MQs booth, but you won’t find him!

All right. Time to hit Publish and hit the Goose. I hope Jessica has the Fireball iced down.
