Today in Memphis, prepare yourself for wine sales in grocery stores, find a new job and give in to the motivational powers of Tony Allen. Also, Travel+Leisure thinks you should get a slice of pizza.

All of that and more is in today's Memphis news update.

Today's photo of the Shelby County Courthouse is by one of my favorite Memphis Instagram-ers, @rusticexcursion. He (I'm assuming it's a he) takes gorgeous photos of his urban explorations around the South. 

– First, the good news: legislation to allow the sale of wine (and high gravity beers) in Tennessee grocery stores won committee approval yesterday. That doesn't mean it's law yet, but it's much closer.

– Councilman Myron Lowery is pushing for legislation that would allow car sharing services like ZipCar to come to Memphis.

– Let's not think about the Tigers' loss last night. Instead, let's think about Tony Allen and his motivational skills, both on the court and off.

– Looking for part-time work? Inferno (an ad agency) is looking for street team members and Yelp is looking for a Memphis brand ambassador.

– According to Travel+Leisure, Memphis is one of the top 20 places in the U.S. to get pizza. Go team!

– Downtown Alive, summer arts series that happens in Court Square, is looking for performers of all kids for this year. Fill out the application here.

– Think you can dance? Get yourself to the Orpheum on March 14 and 16 for open call auditions for season 10 of "So You Think You Can Dance".
