Monday News Update: Small Acts of Kindness Edition

Today in Memphis, there are a few small ways to help in light of last week's bad news. There's also some good news, like a brick-and-mortar version of a great local food truck, a new Grizzlies hire and one of the strangest local ad campaigns ever.

– There's been a ton of sad news lately, but here are two small things you can do: Forest Hill Funeral Home has registry books for thoughts, prayers and condolences that will be sent to the Sandy Hook families, and locally, a donation fund to benefit MPD Officer Martoiya Lang's family has been set up by the Bank of Bartlett.

– Put a candle in your margarita – venerable midtown Mexican restaurant Molly's La Casita is 30 years old.

– Welcome to Memphis, John Hollinger – he's moved from covering the NBA for to working for the Grizzlies.

– As for the Tigers and their game against Louisville on Saturday, all I'll say is that Calkins is right. That, and D.J. Stephens wins at life.

– This is awesome: one of my favorite food trucks, Rock'n'Dough Pizza, is opening a brick-and-mortar restaurant in East Memphis.

– Congrats to Memphis band Tiger High for getting their video for "Be the Indian" on MTV. Good job, y'all.

– Lazy Cakes, the only snack food that should come with a pair of pyjamas, are changing their name to Mellow Munchies.

– Lastly, after he started Piggly Wiggly, Clarence Saunders opened another store called Keedoozle, which had a very interesting ad campaign.

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.
