The Metal Museum will offer a Day of Tasters for those who want a hands-on look at the different ways to work with metal on Saturday, January 11 from 8:30 AM to 4:30 PM. There will be four 90-minute classes, including
- Blacksmithing: You’ll use a coal forge, hammer and anvil to make a taper or hook.
- MIG Welding: You’ll complete a small project in the workshop.
- Casting: You’ll cast a personalized name plate to put on a keychain or magnet.
- Fold forming: You’ll use this process to form a dish out of copper.
Sessions are $50 each. Register here
Shamichael Hallman had a piece in The Daily Memphian yesterday: Reimagining the Cossitt Library. Work on the library starts today and should be complete by September. In the meantime the library has a pop-up location at the Puck Food Hall at 409 S. Main.
Our days of pigging out at the Pizza Hut buffet are coming to an end. The restaurant chain is changing the focus of its business to carryout and mobile orders. At least we still have the buffet at Garibaldi’s.
Speaking of pizza: The Silly Goose released the latest version of its pizza menu, adding a few new ones. (Click the image to view in a larger size)
I decided to try the Louisiana Saturday Night, an experiment from several weeks ago then known as the “Coon Ass.” It comes with confit chicken, Andouille, tasso ham, a Creole cream sauce, peppers, onions, mushrooms, mozzarella and parmesan.
This is absolutely my new favorite pizza at the Goose. It’s a tiny bit spicy, and the medley of flavors all mesh together so well. The pizzas are on happy hour special price of $10 2-5 PM Monday-Tuesday and 4-6 PM Wednesday-Friday.
Yesterday I went to the Blind Bear and got my blackeyed peas for good luck in 2020.
After lunch, Perjorie T. Roll got blessed by Pope John Paul II.
I was told the pope travels all over America and gets his photo taken by lots of people.
Time to get back to work. Back tomorrow with more news.
