Finally Friday Midtown. We survived the work week.

I took the bicycle to work (13.2 miles) Thursday morning. I ran across another bicycle commuter (bad pun), Louie, in Shelby Farms. He showed off his new bicycle. Good bike. To make matters worse (or great, depends on who you are), he was spending his day riding his bicycle on the park trails. Nice day to do so. We chatted for a bit about bicycles and bike gear.

Thursday evening we attended a small event. The gathering was BYOB. We asked the couple across from us where they had purchased their various beers from. “Cash Saver.” Of course. We talked about the store and the beers offered. Speaking of Cash Saver; the store is giving a sweet bicycle away. YOU could win the bicycle yourself.

How?  Follow taylorhjames on Twitter and follow the directions below:

“Go! Take a creative picture of you enjoying your favorite New Belgium product and you’ll be entered to win the bike! Now through Oct 24! Don’t forgot to tag me,@taylorhjames @newbelgium @Cash_Saver & @901BEER to get the most love for your picture!”

Yes, I did indeed win a beer bike from Cash Saver several months ago.

My thoughts of the event we attended last night? Look, just GET OUT! Your couch will be waiting for you when you get home. It doesn’t matter if the event was great or just okay, it is better than just sitting at home. “There is nothing to do in Memphis.” Wrong. There are a ton of events going on in Memphis on any given day.

Speaking of events, Super Happy Funtime Burlesque is coming back to Memphis. Mark your calendars. Friday October 4th, 9:00 p.m. the “Fun” begins at Newbys. Sock It To Me Burlesque is the special guest of the evening. If you have never witnessed SHFTB, you are in for something different. This group plays on “10”. They take you to the edge… and just about throw you off the cliff! Trust me, you will NOT forget this event. You can read my review of the show from the last show in Memphis in 2011.

Trolley Night is tonight downtown at 6:00 p.m. on South Main. Go! Check out some art, wine and do some people watching.

My plans? I see “wings” in my future for Saturday as well as some Wiseacre beer. Plus some coffee and books.

I am currently trying out a Google calendar for events. This is just a sample. I did add some events to October though. Very good events actually. Check the events out.
