Waffle Wednesday Memphis. Get some.

It is a good thing I read other blogs. I discovered the Cooper Young Community Crawfish Boil is right around the corner.

Saturday April 4th 9 a.m. – 1 p.m. The bucket of crawfish is $15 (or order early online for a couple of dollars more). I have been to this event in the past. I just forgot about the event.

So go and get yourself some mudbugs Memphis! And… beer and live music.

If want to listen to an excellent podcast, check out episode #17 of “Reply All”. Yes, the episode talks about time travel. This episode has to be one of the best shows these guys have produced.

Done. If you need something to do, here is a list of upcoming events Memphis:

From the Downtown Memphis Flying Saucer Facebook Page:

Sunday, April 12 at 11:00 a.m. Join us for a downtown Bicycle Ride along the Mississippi and Main street. Poker run for great prizes. Share a Pint with us following the ride at the Flying Saucer. Registration starts at 11am, Ride at 12. $10 to ride. Sponsored by Yazoo Brewery.”

Memphis Brewfest is almost here. April 18th, 4-7:30, Autozone Park. This event sells out. Don’t wait for tickets. I have been to this event in the past. Lots of beer to try downtown.

How about a rare beer? Wiseacre Brewery has the 2nd annual “Taste the Rarity” brewfest coming up. May 9th, 3-7, on Broad Ave. Check out the event and buy tickets here. My guess? This event will sell out. Get your tickets soon.

Tommy Want Wingy

After you get into the event, stand in line at a booth, pay a donation and sample some great wings from great teams. Every year I believe I will sample each and every booth. Doesn’t happen. Some wings are better than others. Take some $1 bills, donate and sample the wings. Love me the wings.
