Madison and Tucker, Memphis, Tenn.

I'm going to assume that this sculpture at the corner of Madison and Tucker is deceked out for Valentine's Day, not Christmas. Either way, I like it.

– Happy birthday to two of my favorite local establishments! Muddy's Bakeshop turns four tomorrow, and Goner Records turns 8 years old (or 2, in leap years) today. In honor of their big day, they're having a sale – 15 percent off everything in the store and online (use code BIRTH at check out).

– The Memphis Flyer is giving away two club-level tickets to tonight's Grizzlies game (against the Mavericks).

– Do something good with your bonus day: MIFA is doing a Plus-1 donation campaign. The premise is that you donate to MIFA by adding $1 to your monthly MLGW bill.

– We're number one! Memphis was named the No. 1 Best Barbecue City in America by U.S. News and World Report.

– If you've got a few minutes, check out my friend Robert Rowan's gorgeous film homage to Memphis in the winter (set to an MGMT song).

I write about what’s going on with Memphis music, food, arts, events, sports, people, and culture. Memphians love Elvis and barbeque with a passion that must be seen to be believed, but there is so much more to this place.
