Saturday update

When you get to the end of today’s post, keep scrolling… earlier this morning I posted a review of the 25 cent martini lunch at Felicia Suzanne’s. Just let me say this – amazing lunch, excellent value, you MUST give it a try if you haven’t already.

By the way, while I was at lunch I found another 25 cent drinking value on Facebook. (Normally I wouldn’t have my phone out at a nice place like Felicia’s, but I had posted about forgiveness and it was getting a ton of “Likes” and comments.) Agave Maria also does Friday lunch with 25 cent margaritas. ATTN WORK: I’m going to need every Friday off from now on.

Philadelphia singer-songwriter Amos Lee performs at the Orpheum tonight at 8 PM. Tickets are $29.50-$59.50.

Dogs, Beer, and Live Music for Tails of Hope happens this evening at High Cotton Brewing Co. from 5 to 8 PM. High Cotton and Hollywood feed present this fundraiser go to Tails of Hope Dog Rescue. $10 donation is requested. First 75 people get a free beer as well as a free dog beer if they bring their dog. Everyone gets a Hollywood Feed gift bag and a logo pint glass.

The Pandemonium Film Showcase continues today at the Cossitt Library, Front at Monroe, at 4 PM. This month’s theme is The Roller Derby Picture Show. Movies shown will be Rollerball (1975), Hell on Wheels (2002), and The Unholy Rollers (1972). The event is put together by Craig Brewer and Black Lodge Video and is free to attend. The Memphis Roller Derby will circle the audience as they watch. Beer, food, and soda will be available to purchase.

Southern Avenue plays Loflin Yard tonight at 7.

Schoolboy Q with special guest Joey Bada$$ plays the New Daisy tonight as part of his Blank Face tour. Doors at 6, show at 7, tickets $45.

Here’s a new idea for a beer pairing… beer and popsicles. On Wednesday, October 5 from 7 to 9, High Cotton will pair 4 beers with 4 popsicles. It’s $20 at the door and you can pay with cash or card. The Freewheelin’ slow ride through the Medical Center district happens from 6 to 7 so it would easy to do both events. Additional MEMpops and High Cotton beer will be available for purchase if you so choose. High Cotton is family-friendly, so if your kids like popsicles, bring’em. The place is dog-friendly too.

In the news: Hangover-free alcohol could replaces all regular alcohol by 2050. I hope the nursing home I’m living in by then has a bar.

That’s it for this post… don’t forget to keep scrolling to read about my lunch yesterday. Taking a rare Saturday off from Bardog this morning. I’m going to the Farmers Market, then catching a Lyft or Uber out to the Broad Avenue Water Tower to watch my friends compete in BreakFest, then another Lyft/Uber back to South Main for football watching at Max’s Sports Bar. If the second day of my four-day weekend is as much fun as the first, I’ll be off to a good start indeed.
