Is this whole Monday-on-a-Tuesday thing throwing anyone else off?
This trailer was parked on South Main during trolley tour last Friday night. On one side, there's an American flag that the trailer's owner encourages people to write on. On the other side, there's this: a mural devoted to the concept of "Memphis rich". I'm not entirely sure what that means, but I do know this – Memphis rich is way not the same as New York rich.
In other news:
- It's officially (well, sort of) summer, and it's already hot in Memphis. The good news is that the city's public pools open on June 11. The better news is that the Peabody Park splash park is already open.
- Also open this week: Overton Bark, the midtown park's new fenced, off-leash dog park.
- If you've got $100,000 to spend, Elvis' first mausoleum is up for auction next month.
- There's apparently a lot of stealth involved in brining new business to Memphis. Reporter Andy Ashby has a cool story about the code names that companies use before they go public about their moves.
- Those of you into Westerns won't want to miss the Memphis Film Festival (held in Olive Branch, Miss.) this weekend.
- The first ever Unveil Downtown art exhibit – which features 20 local artists in 20 non-traditional venues for 20 days – will open on Friday. You can get a preview of the works (and bid on them) here.
