Saturday update

Congratulations to Ja Morant and Jaren Jackson Jr., who made the NBA All-Star roster as reserves!

In other NBA news, LeBron James will most likely surpass Kareem as the NBA’s all-time leading scorer next week. Might want to keep an eye on Lakers games.

The Blind Bear should have a secret menu like In-N-Out Burger. In a sense one item is already on that menu. You’re probably familiar with regular-menu item Hibernation Fries. They’re covered in beef and melted pepper jack cheese and tomatoes and green onions. All kinds of good stuff.

Well, last night I was sitting at the bar with Butt Slut #1. She ordered Hibernation OKRA – same dish, but with okra. I had a few bites. It was really good.

“During the pandemic, I hibernated everything on the menu,” Butt Slut #1 explained. “The okra worked out the best.”

I’m just gonna quote my friend B-RAD on what is happening at IBIS for Sunday brunch, in the former Pontotoc Lounge space:

Come join us Sunday ! Brunch cocktail menu ( espresso martinis, peach Bellini , sparking rose lavender lemonade, Irish coffee , bloody Mary’s and bottle service mimosa or sparkling rose ! David Ingle with light music . Hope to see you all and thank you for your support .
