Friday update

Holly from I Love Memphis has dropped the November I Love Memphis podcast. I haven’t had time to listen yet, but I have no doubt it is a good one: The special guest for November is Paul Morris who runs DMC.

A comment I saw on Twitter this morning about the podcast: “Rubber wheel trolleys from downtown to Cooper-Young?” Is that an idea being tossed around? Yes yes yes! Please make this happen! I would love to hang out in Midtown more than I currently do (meaning, more than two or three times a year). I hope the hours are reasonable (shutting down at 11:45 on a Friday night is an example of “not reasonable”).

There are a couple of seasonal celebrations Downtown tonight. Latino Memphis’ Day of the Dead celebration is at the Cadre Building from 7 to 10:30. Music by Colombian singer Marcela Pinilla and her band, Mariachi Guadalajara and a Latin DJ. There will be food bites and a Tree of Life as well. Must be 21+.

Meanwhile, over in Victorian Village, Haunted Happenings is tonight from 7 to 10. Tonight only, the Woodruff-Fontaine House will be transformed into a haunted mansion. Docents will lead tours, with ghost stories at every turn. Live paranormal investigation, local authors who have written horror stories, gypsy fortune tellers. Traditional turn of the century Halloween treats in the carriage house. $20 adults, $10 for children 12 and under.

South Main Trolley Night posted the lineup for tonight to Facebook. Because I’m lazy, I will just copy and paste:

-Vendors galore, especially on the East Side of Main near Rizzos
-Cafe Pontotoc: Brent Dennis accoustic duo.
-Signal Flow PR: Faith Ruch, Bryan Hayes and more
-Double J: Tim Plunk
-The Green Beetle: Justin Moore
-Breaking Point Financial (across from Fire Station): Shufflegrit
-Broken Arrow: Soriana Wood
-Obsidian PR: Larry Randolph
-Love Pop Soda Shop(inside): Brandon Taylor, Moses Crouch
-Rizzos: Roger Wild
-Main Street Law: Ron Everett (tentative)
-South Main Sounds: Frank McClallen, Stephen Sciara, Joseph Lee, Justin Paul Bloss, Bryan Hayes Music !

This mini basket and ball is what you will get if you are one of the first 5000 at the Grizzlies home game tomorrow night against Brooklyn.

Don’t forget that the Race for the Cure is at AutoZone Park tomorrow morning at 9. If you need to drive anywhere tomorrow morning, allow extra extra extra time.

Wrapping things up at work. I will be out for happy hour, probably an early night because PBR MAN has a big day tomorrow!
