One of the must-eats of Downtown Memphis: The Soul Burger at Earnestine & Hazel’s. I had my first Soul Burger in 4 years last night. Happy birthday Neal!

I’m hurting y’all. These 3 AM go-home times are killing me. I was in South Main until 1 for a birthday party. After the massive amount of food I ate at Maciel’s (see previous post) I didn’t need a Soul Burger, but I was there and Soul Burgers were there so it had to happen. Later in the evening I made my way back to the core and closed the Blind Bear.

The Green Beetle will have its weekly installment of Live Music Sunday tonight with Chris Hill. “Service Industry, come on down!” Food and bucket specials. 8-11 PM.

The River Rat Rounders are doing a Deal Out Cancer fundraiser for men’s health Saturday, November 21st at the Downtown Central BBQ at 2 PM. Grand prize is a trip to Vegas and the top five places pay out, prize packages ranging from values of $400 to $150. Teresa from RRR will be running the show and your $45 buy-in includes a Central BBQ buffet.

While we’re on the subject of buffets, Agave Maria will have a Day of the Dead/Resurrection buffet November 1 for those recovering from Halloween.

That’s Melissa (of Melissa Monday happy hour fame) next to the hearse.

There’s a wildlife management seminar at noon at the waterfowl expo at Bass Pro Pyramid today. If you missed Friday’s seminar on giant whitetail deer, you have a second chance today.

Anheuser-Busch’s merger with Miller is the first of a 5-point plan to eliminate craft beer. It won’t work.

The Grizzlies are winning at the box office as well as on court. As of Friday less than 20 lower bowl season tickets remained.

Time to go talk to B-RAD about some D-RANKS. Back tomorrow with more news.
