– Alas. Mississippi bluesman T-Model Ford died yesterday at age 89. Or 94. No one's exactly sure. What is certain is the musician led a very, very eventful life.

– Hog and Hominy, the restaurant that can do no wrong, got a glowing review in the New York Times.

– Another tenant – this time, a clothing store – is opening in Overton Park.

– If Pitchfork's excellently written review doesn't make you want to go see "Nothing Can Hurt Me", nothing will.

– Check out this sneak peek inside Chef Ryan Trimm's new East Memphis restaurant, Southward Fare & Libations.

– Your morning feel-good moment: the Peabody has given a special honor to Buttercup the Formerly Peg-Legged Duck .

– Mark your calendars: vintage/new clothing store Hoot + Louise is having a pop-up shop with Memphis ceramics studio Paper + Clay.
