Christmas Day update

I have more details on New Year’s Day at the Ghost River taproom. They will be open noon to 9, and as I mentioned previously, South Side Supper Club will play live music from 2 to 4. On the event listing they point out that the band features a clarinet, accordion, bass, and banjo… however, I have heard that this will be a performance with the full five-piece, including a fiddle. These guys have the ability to adapt almost any song to their style and it will be something different and fun to do on New Year’s.

If you get hungry, Yippie Trippie & The Porkstars will have their food truck parked outside and there will be plenty of good Southern food to eat. The New Year’s Day menu will include pecan smoked honey ham, Tennessee blackeyed peas, sweet southern corn pudding, southwestern collard greens, shrimp and smoked gouda grits, million dollar grilled cheese, and Ghost River venison chili.

They’ll have football on the TVs, there are board games you can play with your family, and dogs are welcome outside on the patio. If you’re not into craft beer, you can bring your own wine or champagne to the Ghost River taproom for a small corkage fee.

The Brass Door is throwing a New Year’s Eve party with live music by The Candy Company. There will be two bars, and your $10 cover includes champagne and passed hors d’oeuvres.

Hey, look, Memphis made the international news! This past week a man was caught urinating inches away from a sleeping woman at the Memphis International Airport. It was reported several days ago in the local media and now the incident has made it all the way to the UK’s Daily Mail.

OK, that’s it, short post, it’s Christmas and not a whole lot is going on. Back tomorrow with more news.
