Saturday update

Today may be Galentine’s Day and I wish everybody a happy one, but Saturdays are for the boys so I’m going to start off the blog with a link for us. Lansky Bros. is having a Mystery Sport Shirt Sale. You’ve seen those awesome, intricately detailed shirts as you walk through the Peabody lobby.  How would you like to have one of those shirts (retail up to $125) for only $39.99?

Here’s the deal though… you tell them your size and how many you want, and then they pick the shirts. So you have to trust them. But really, what’s the last time you ever saw a shirt at Lansky Bros. you wouldn’t be proud to own? This is a pretty amazing deal, so you better jump on it while it lasts.

Ladies, if you’re looking for something fun to do with your gal pals today, the Mallory-Neely House in Victorian Village is hosting a Victorian Galentine’s Day tonight at 6. You’ll get to make a succulent arrangement, sip champagne, learn about the language of flowers, and take home a chocolate covered strawberry kit. There are only 20 seats available and the cost is $50 per person.

Chef Tam is doing a private brunch & paint today and tomorrow at her Underground  Cafe. $199 couples, $99 singles.

Seen on social media yesterday: Buster’s liquor store at Poplar and Highland now delivers to the 38103 zip code.

From the CA: The DMC is considering buying the 100 N. Main building and is soliciting ideas what to do with it. I have three words:

“Let’s ask Mongo”

I’m sure Prince Mongo would have many creative uses for the building – plus, it would give him a chance to show what he can do in advance of the 2022 mayoral election.

The blog has a first take on the winter storm set to arrive Sunday night into Monday. With temperatures struggling to break 20 and precipitation most definitely heading our way, it looks like even those who don’t have Presidents Day off as a holiday will have it off as a snow day. In fact, it’s possible that Tuesday and Friday will be the only days this coming week that aren’t snow days.

The Redbirds will find themselves in a reorganized league this year designed to reduce travel between teams. They’ll play teams in the southeast including Nashville, Jacksonville, Norfolk, Charlotte, Durham, and Gwinnett. “Jacksonville Jumbo Shrimp” has got to be one of the worst team names in professional sports.

Post Malone and former WCW World Heavyweight Champion David Arquette are shopping an idea for a Memphis TV series entitled High Heel. The show is described as a strong woman’s version of Breaking Bad.

A developer plans to convert a dilapidated building at Fourth and Vance into retail spaces and 4 apartments.

The Dirty Crow Inn folks have announced they’re taking a week off from their Sunday residency at West Memphis’ 40et8 to celebrate Valentine’s Day tomorrow. They’ll be back with the wings and the Dirty Mac burger on the 21st, though.

There’s a Guest Service Representative position open at the Sheraton.

The Orpheum is holding a spring camp for children who stutter. President Biden is proof that a stutter does not limit your opportunity in any way.

That’s the news. I’m going to stay home and avoid the cold and get several days worth of writing done on Medium, leaving me free to go out on whatever snow days fall next week. Back tomorrow with more news.
