Sunday update

As I walked to the farmers market yesterday, I discovered a couple of weekday deals at Rumba Room.

Tuesdays: $11 for three tacos is right in line with what other restaurants in the neighborhood charge, so you’re basically getting a Corona for free. Plus a salsa dance lesson if you want one.

Wednesdays: $15 for a burger is in line with what other restaurants on Main charge – so it’s like you’re getting a margarita for free, and optionally a bachata lesson too.

I got to the Memphis Farmers Market and discovered

  • Master Gardeners were there for free consultations on planting and growing
  • Memphis Public Libraries had a booth there
  • There was a kids’ table with coloring and crafts

Memphis 901 FC got a 2-0 win over Pittsburgh last night.

I would have loved to have this stuff in Thursday or Friday’s blog. But I didn’t know! Did I get knocked off the Market’s weekly e-newsletter mailing list? Or do they not do the newsletter anymore?

More storms could be headed our way. The biggest risk will occur in the overnight hours, but they could get going as early as 3 PM.

Today is World Dracula Day. And there was a man on the Main Street Mall with a Dracula name tag on this morning.

There will be a Mini Wiener Fest at Hi-Tone 5 PM-midnight Memorial Day. Free regular-sized hot dogs.

I had a Cali Burrito at Bardog yesterday. It seems to be becoming one of their new regular specials during brunch. Chorizo, eggs, fries, avocado, queso fresco. It’s delicious but definitely put a couple of napkins in your lap. It’s messy!

Automatic Slim’s brunch news:

I don’t know if I’ll post tomorrow or not. I’ll have the time, but holidays are notoriously slow for news. As is the case with most Monday holidays, I plan on being at Bardog at 8 AM. Come hang out!

It’s free to read this blog, but I gratefully accept tips!
