Mon update #2: Yoga, tamales coming to Mud Island, and more

I don’t know if I have any readers who are into yoga, but if so, MyHQ has a free class Wednesday evening at 6:30 at the park across Front Street from Raymond James. Hosted by Downtown Yoga, the free session will be followed by a picnic in the park. MyHQ will supply the mats (although you can bring your own), music, and wine; you bring whatever food you want to eat. There are only 40 spots, so RSVP here if you plan on attending. Free parking in the garage on Front with the large blue P (tell them you are there for yoga). This event is weather permitting. MyHQ is gauging interest in offering a free sunrise yoga class on Wednesday mornings. Sun salutation – isn’t that one of the poses?

News for Mud Island residents: By special agreement with the Riverfront Development Corporation, the Tamale Trolley food truck will be at the Mississippi Greenbelt Park every Tuesday until close.

From the MBJ: The folks in charge of the Medical Center District are looking to build on the creative culture of The Edge, the neighborhood encompassing Madison, Monroe, Union and Marshall that stretches roughly from Danny Thomas to Sun Studio.

Trying to decide where to treat Dad for Father’s Day? That weekend, Friday, June 17 and Saturday, June 18, Bleu will have Steaks, Suds, & Spuds. Pick your steak, pick your draft flight, and pick your tater. Sounds so yummy it makes me wish I had children so I would get taken there… wait, no it doesn’t.

Also, Bleu will have a wine dinner this Thursday featuring California wines and cuisine.

Vets are protesting at Trump Tower this week, and there was a sign that reads, “Trumpty Dumpty didn’t serve. Trumpty Dumpty broke his word.” That. Is. Awesome.
