Camo the FedExForum, Bardog news, Thanksgiving and more (Monday update #2)

There is a movement to camo the FedExForum for the next Grizzlies home game, on the night of Wednesday, November 11. That of course is Veteran’s Day. Not only would it be a way to honor our veterans at the game, but it would be a way to show solidarity behind the team as they host defending NBA champions the Golden State Warriors. Choose901 will be selling “Defending the Bluff” camo shirts at the game for only $10, with proceeds going to the Wounded Warrior Project, an organization that helps veterans get transportation they otherwise couldn’t afford to get them the medical care they need.

Bardog is seeking a brunch server/bartender Saturday-Sunday 10-5. Only serious applicants need apply, and you can do so by dropping by the bar Monday-Friday between 2 and 4 PM to fill out an applications. Must be capable of putting up with John D and me on Saturdays.

Several pieces of Thanksgiving news this afternoon. First of all, from Mashable: What your Thanksgiving dinner plate says about your personality. For those of you who remember the Nuh-Uh Girl, she is an analyst. She loves digging into people’s psyches and exploring their eccentricities.

LUNCHBOXeats has released its order and pick-up Thanksgiving dinner menu for 2015. You can select from complete dinner packages for the entire family, or just entrees, just sides, or just desserts. You need to have your order in by November 16.

Another place cooking Thanksgiving turkeys for pickup is Central BBQ. You can pre-order a 10 to 14 pound turkey for $44.99. Turkeys are slow-smoked to perfection. It is kind of blasphemy for me to say this, because we Memphians are supposed to love our pork, but the Cajun turkey plate is probably my favorite thing on Central’s menu.

This is not a Downtown event, but nevertheless is worth a trip out to the Agricenter: India Fest this Saturday, November 7. It’s a celebration of Indian food, culture, music and dance and it is highly regarded by those who have been in past years. Most definitely worth checking out if you enjoy foreign cultures.

Hungry Memphis has a post about Double J’s BBQ egg rolls. Hungry Memphis blogger Michelle Lewis was surprised by how big they were, and recommends having them with Double J’s BBQ sauce.

TechCamp Memphis happens this Saturday at the Southwest Tennessee Community College Library. For attendees of the conference, there will be a special happy hour Thursday at the Downtown Flying Saucer, a chance for those attending to get to know one another in advance.

Slate has the best way to re-heat pizza. It’s nearly as fast as a microwave and does not involve an oven.

All right. Time to put a wooden nickel in my pocket and see Melissa about a 5 cent PBR. That’ll do it for this post.
