Friday News Update: Super Cheap Beer, Openings, High Praise, Penguins

Posted by Holly Whitfield | July 26th 2013 1472 0

Today in Memphis, Buzzfeed and the New York Times give us high praise, Tamp and Tap attempts to kill their kegs this weekend, and a new sweets shop is set to open. Also, there's a penguin cam.

All of that (and more) is in today's Memphis news update:


Instagrammer @rachelsan0606 snapped a picture of the Candy Chang-style Before I Die wall at Jerry's Snow Cones. I like the person who wants to be a Pokemon. If you'd like to see your Memphis Instagram photos featured here, tag them #ilovememphis.

– First, it's Friday. And what's better on a Friday than super cheap beer? Nothing. Tamp and Tap is having a Kill the Kegs party starting today at 4 p.m. and running through the weekend (until supplies run out). All of their craft beers on tap (High Cotton, Ghost River, Shafly, Yazoo, Brooklyn) are $2.50 per pint.

– Buzzfeed has declared Memphis to be one of the 10 most hospitable cities. Let's take them out to dinner next time they're in town, ok?

– Overton Park has gotten so awesome that parking has become a bit of a problem. Don't worry – they're working on it.

– The New York Times reporter who wrote this piece about Memphis did very thorough barbecue research and came up with a lot of the same conclusions that Memphians have. High five, Seth Kugel.

– More good news for Overton Square: a candy store, called Sweet Noshings, is going to open this fall.

This is a penguin cam. It's exactly what it sounds like, and you're going to love it.

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.
