Wednesday News Update: Basketball, Disco Ball Edition

Posted by Holly Whitfield | November 7th 2012 702 0

Happy Wednesday, y'all. While we've been staring at color coded election maps, plenty of non-political things have been happening in Memphis. Things like restaurant openings, food trucks for sale, new Tigers, and the return of the Crosstown Disco Ball.

But first, I thought this photo by @glassesmalone (via Instagram) would be appropriate for today:

– I've been so distracted by the election and the Grizzlies that I almost forgot that Tiger basketball starts tonight. They scrimmage Christian Brothers at the FedExForum at 7 p.m. Also, how awesome is the Austin Nichols commitment?

– If you'd like to add a little more authority to your phone, you can now download Coach Hollins' shrill, stop-those-shenanigans-right-now whistle as a ringtone.

– Want to buy a food truck? Revival is looking for a new owner/operator.

– In other restaurant news, the Osaka that took over the old Bookstar location is now open (though, sadly, the building's cool retro bathrooms are gone). Also, here's some info on Bar DKDC, aka, the place that's replacing Do Sushi. Sidenote about Do – for those of you who miss the curry vegetable soup, it's been added to Beauty Shop's dinner menu.

Weather can't stop the Crosstown disco party. Nothing can stop the Crosstown disco party.

– Attention, bargain hunters: a Memphis redditor pointed out that everything is on sale at the Office Depot at Poplar and Mendenhall. It's closing in December to make way for the Whole Foods expansion.

– Lastly, this WPA-style Memphis poster is extremely pretty.

If you've got a tip or something you'd like to see featured on I Love Memphis, let me know. If there's an event you want to share, please submit it to the blog's calendar.
