Posted by Holly Whitfield | August 14th 2013 3151 0

Today in Memphis, Muddy's comes to Midtown, Memphis music gets big shout outs, the Orpheum extends their summer movie series, and we've got a discount coupon for roller derby.

But first, it's Wednesday. Have some gravy!


Instagrammer @alistupidbacher snapped this picture of the greatest gravy to-go cups in Memphis at Bryant's. If you'd like to see your Memphis photos featured here, tag them #ilovememphis.

– First, the big news, at least for those of us who like happiness: Muddy's Bakeshop is opening a retail location in Midtown. Cupcakes in Cooper-Young!

– In music news, the Memphis Music Foundation has partnered with Apple to launch an all Memphis music part of the iTunes store. Also, emusic has a feature on Elvis at Stax in honor of Elvis Week.

– If you were getting a little bummed that the Orpheum Summer Movie Series was over, fear not: the theatre has added five more films (including "Animal House" and "King Kong") to the lineup.

– I was pleasantly surprised to wake up this morning listening to Tad Pierson talking up Memphis' juke joint culture on NPR. If you missed it, listen here.

– Want to see roller derby for cheap? Here's a discount coupon for Memphis Roller Derby's last bout of the season, which is on Saturday night.

– Take a look at Memphis' first protected bike lanes.

– In case you needed more reasons to love the Grizzlies, the Gasol Brothers have launched a foundation for kids' health and Lionel Hollins helped hundreds of local kids with their back-to-school needs.

– Lastly, I've been adding a ton of events to the ILM Events Calendar this week. If you know of anything coming up, please submit it here.

    If you eat that stuff, you will never, ever have a figure like the girl on the cup. I consider that false advertising.
