A City Council member is introducing an ordinance that would allow people to walk down Main Street, from A.W. Willis to G.E. Patterson, with a drink in their hand. Hmmm. Interesting idea but I’m not sure how I feel about it. As the people at the Arcade said in the news story, I worry that it would change the relaxed character of Main Street. I can handle my neighborhood turning into Amateur Night on New Year’s Eve, St. Patrick’s Day, and Music Fest, but not year ’round.
The Memphis Flyer and Memphis Business Journal have articles on the new food hall at 409 South Main. It is already open and is having its grand opening Saturday, December 2. It will contain seven restaurant and cafe concepts. I went to a similar food hall in Little Rock earlier this year and have become a big fan of food halls. The grand opening is yet one more reason to celebrate the first weekend of December!
