Saturday update

There will be a Big Wheel Race on Beale Street today, starting at 1 PM. This is presented by the Beale Street Merchants Association and benefits the Salvation Army Angel Tree program, getting Christmas gifts to kids who might not otherwise have them. If you want to pitch in, bring an unwrapped, unopened toy to any business on Beale.

Tubby and the Tigers host basketball powerhouse Northern Kentucky at FedExForum tonight at 7. This is one of these games that’ll get Memphis’ strength of schedule rating well into the Top 300 come March Madness time.

Pilates, Poke and Pints comes to the Ghost River taproom this Thursday, November 30 at 5:45 PM. Club Pilates East Memphis will conduct a one-hour Pilates mat class. $15 pays for the class and a cold beer afterward, with net proceeds benefiting the Ronald McDonald House. Ono Poke will be there with snacks and fuel.

There’s a burlesque show tonight at Earnestine & Hazel’s. $10 admission.

Agenda for today:

  • Go Tigers Go
  • Rolllllllll Tide (so Arkansas has a better chance of poaching Gus)
  • Go ‘dores (to remind UT fans they’re losers with or without Butch)

I’m gonna need a place with lots of TVs to keep up with all the action.

Back tomorrow with more news, or Monday if Thanksgiving weekend continues to be a slow news weekend.
