The fractured beam was removed from the I-40 bridge yesterday and TDOT reports that significant progress has been made.

ODDS Atelier is throwing an “I survived Trolley Night!” party on Friday, June 25 from 7:30 PM to midnight. Live music, DJ, free food, free cocktails. Admission is free but they ask that you RSVP to guarantee your spot at the party.

Imani Soap Company is opening at 65 Monroe this Saturday, June 26. The business is part of the Open on Main initiative and will have a storefront for 6 months.

Today is National Onion Rings Day. My #1 recommendation to celebrate would be Majestic Grille’s tempura fried onion rings, but they’re closed Mondays and Tuesdays.

There will be fireworks at AutoZone Park following the end of the Redbirds games on July 2, 3, and 4.

DJ Superbrad hosts a ’90s Party at Blind Bear this Saturday.

I awoke to the sweet, sweet sound of my air conditioner cycling off for the first time in more than a week. I don’t know what we did to deserve these cool, crisp temperatures, but I’ll take it. The MemphisWeather.net forecast has us at a high of 80 and a low of 59 today. That’s a normal high and low for October 1.

That’s it! Back tomorrow with more.
