Thur update #2

If you have a ticket to the 8:30 PM Grizzlies vs. Spurs Game 6 tonight and are looking for a place to pre-game Downtown, the Redbirds invite you to do so for free at AutoZone Park. Catch the first several innings of the Redbirds game and enjoy Thursday night select drafts for $2. All the Club Level TVs will be tuned to the Grizzlies, and the remainder of the Grizzlies game will be shown on the video board once the baseball game concludes.

More baseball news: Saturday is The Edge Gets Lit alley party in Floyd Alley between Fourth and Danny Thomas, and the organizers of the event have cut a special ticket deal with the Redbirds. The gate will be open where Floyd Alley dead-ends at Fourth by the YMCA. There you can purchase a standing room/bluff ticket for only $5, and you will be given a wristband so you can come and go as you please. The gate is the only place the ticket will be offered – it cannot be purchased in advance and will not be available at the box office.

It’s the one year anniversary of Drafts and Laughs, hosted by Comma Comedians, at the Memphis Made brewery tonight. Start time is 8:30.

The Moody Ques had a brief meeting last night, and I got some surprising news given how late in the year it is: As of yesterday, we still had 4 more team wrist-tiks than we have members. That means spots are still open! If you’ve ever thought about being on a BBQ team, email me at for information on how to join.

That’s it for now. Headed to the Silly Goose after work. Back tomorrow.
