Friday update

Earlier this week I posted that St. Jude runners can get 20% off food at Bardog today and tomorrow if they show a runner’s bib or a medal. I have now found out that offer also applies to Downtown’s other Aldo restaurants, Slider Inn and Aldo’s Pizza Pies.

Monday is the 89th anniversary of the repeal of Prohibition, and the Blind Bear is celebrating. From tonight beginning at 9 PM through close of business Monday, you can get the following specials:

  • $5 moonshine shots
  • $5 Bear Balls
  • $10 Jager BBQ fried bologna sandwich with a side of pepper jack mac & cheese
  • Friday 9-midnight: Mario Monterosso Band
  • Friday 10-midnight: Velvetina’s Speakeasy Burlesque
  • Saturday 9-midnight: The Red Feather

Don’t forget, the Bear is bought out for a private party from 5:30 to 9:00 this evening. I recommend happy hour with Dani at Bardog as an alternate, and that’s where I plan to be.

Need something to wear to a holiday sweater party? Feelin’ Memphis at 509 S. Main has you covered:

Food & Wine has a list of the best apres-ski towns in America. That means. “fun things to do after skiing.” Park City, Utah made the list. If you go out there, be sure to check out the wineries and wine bars – my friend the Nuh-Uh Girl is a sommelier out there. Just don’t bring food with you… she’ll eat it!

OMG I tried the candied yams as a side on Local on Main’s $12 lunch (noon to 3 Monday-Friday). They are SO good. Do not miss out on them.

That’s the news for now. Not sure if there will be a post tomorrow since I’ll be getting out super early for a Saturday.
