Early afternoon good music alert and Sunday news

Quick time-sensitive post that is a good music alert. Bluesman Eric Hughes will be performing at Central BBQ Downtown today from noon to 3. If you want to start off your day with some excellent music, that is absolutely what I recommend.

I had one of the new steamed hot sandwiches from Max’s Sports Bar Friday night. Well, okay, I didn’t order one, but Michele gave me a piece of her sandwich. DAMN that was good. Max’s was never a food destination until they got that sandwich bar, but it is now. Give one a try if you haven’t already.

The Majestic Grille is having a paella patio party on June 9 in the next of its 10 ’til 10 series. I love paella! Anyone want to go?

So there’s a margarita festival on June 27 in Overton Park and a tamale festival not far away same date, practically the same time. Anyone else think a shuttle between the two would be a great idea? Do the people who run Ride the Roo read my blog?

The Weekend at Porky’s BBQ team is missing their team flag. If anyone has seen it email me at paul@paulryburn.com and I will arrange to get it back to them.

Bonus Panda time: Panda is working a double at Bardog on Memorial Day, 8 AM to 8 PM. Come see her. If you work Saturday day shift and don’t get any Panda time, this is your chance.

A few of us checked out Tin Roof yesterday afternoon. Here are a few pics.

First time I have ever had “totchos,” tater tots covered with toppings as though they were nachos. I must say, I am a fan. I will very likely go back for these.

Much later, at Blind Bear. Anna Carrie (Hope I spelled that right; in glasses) is a teacher and just started her 8-week summer vacation. I must admit I am rather jealous. I miss the schedule of teaching.

D-RANKS with B-RAD at 11 AM. A Sunday with no Monday behind it is going to be a very fun day.
