365 Memphians - Brandon Sams

56 / 365

Brandon is a local comedian and my favorite FedExForum employee.

In other news:

– So, yesterday’s Memphian of the day is no longer a Memphian. Memphis Grizzly Hasheem Thabeet was traded to Houston yesterday. In return, the Griz got Shane Battier back.

– Historic Beale St. retail emporium A. Schwab is for sale. The business, which has been family-run for 134 years, is the only building on Beale St. that’s not owned by the city. It seems like it’s being put up for sale because the younger generation of the family doesn’t want to run the business. Let’s hope whoever buys it keeps it as is – it’s one of the most interesting, authentic things on the street.
