Wednesday update

Whoooooo! Last night I went to the sports pub side of the newly-reopened Brass Door, where Colin put ESPN’s 30 for 30: Nature Boy, the long-anticipated documentary about the life of pro wrestling icon “Nature Boy” Ric Flair on the big screen. While watching, I tried some of the Beer Cheese Dip that is new to the menu.

The Brass Door and the sports pub next door, despite having been closed for several months, still look essentially the same. What’s different is the infrastructure put in place behind the scenes by Majestic Hospitality Group. What Patrick and Deni Reilly, owners of Majestic Hospitality Group, have learned is that a great idea like the “neighborhood house” concept of the Brass Door can be taken to a whole new level when great systems are put in place.

My troll wanted to make sure everyone knows the Brass Door has PBR.

I was going to post about holiday events at the Majestic Grille today, but I’m too late: Brunch with Santa and Clark’s Christmas Dinner have already sold out. The annual half-price gift card sale will be Wednesday, November 29.

Poker night at Bardog gets even better during basketball season.

I won the tickets at a poker night a few years ago. They are very nice seats. Start time is 7:30 PM and the game is in the Underdog Room downstairs.

Bloghouse Memphis, a conference for travel bloggers who want to take their blog to the next level, will happen at the Peabody May 31-June 3. This is a small conference with members hand-selected and attendance limited to around 20.

Seen on Twitter this morning: “You can’t beat Tennessee in the fall.” Reply: “But everyone can beat Tennessee in the fall.” LOL!

The full Ron Bell interview by Gary Parrish on ESPN 92.9 is worth 36 minutes of your time if you want to hear more about the allegations he is making against Josh Pastner. As others said on Twitter, Parrish did a great job of letting Bell talk and talk and talk and talk and talk.

Here’s an interesting website I found last year: Sociopath Hell

Here’s a photo of the MALTED glass you will receive if you’re one of the first 50 at Memphis Made’s fourth birthday party Saturday:

A transgender candidate beat a 13-term incumbent in a Virginia state legislative race yesterday. The incumbent was a homophobe who authored a “bathroom bill” that died in committee. LOVE IT. Acceptance of others and human decency have not been lost.

That’s it for now. I will be happy houring at the Silly Goose after work. Back tomorrow with more news.
