Re: “Beat It

Waste of food? Surely these establishments have to-go boxes for patrons who dont complete the challenges. There are lots of things done to excess and most include things people do for entertainment. Why dont you go spend 14 dollars for a movie ticket and 10 dollars for popcorn and a drink and leave the ones who might want to try a food challenge alone. Better yet mind your own business. It's not like everyone coming in the door is ordering these extra large items.

Re: “Okrapreneurs

This is so fantastic! I saw Miles give a presentation on the farm at the last PechaKucha Night.

Re: “Now open: Agave Maria and Tamp & Tap Triad.

I never saw the addresses either. I always wondered why you guys left that out of the food articles. I always gloss over the "additional" stuff at the bottom of every article.
Now we know.

Re: “Now open: Agave Maria and Tamp & Tap Triad.

buzz, the addresses, phone numbers, etc. of the restaurants are just below the article.

Re: “Now open: Agave Maria and Tamp & Tap Triad.

A few outside tables at agave maria would be great.

Re: “Now open: Agave Maria and Tamp & Tap Triad.

Address of the places you talk about would be a nice addition to these reviews...

Re: “Now open: Agave Maria and Tamp & Tap Triad.

Local on the Square is one of the worst restaurants in Midtown...and probably all of Memphis

Re: “Two ways to eat your spinach.

For your world food exposure I would offer breaded and deep fried Spinach used as a pusher for a yummy potato pomegranate cilantro yogurt soup as served at the Craft's Museum in New Dehli.

Re: “Now Open: Riverfront Bar & Grill

Terrible experience. No host/hostess. We waited a few minutes before the bartender leaned across the bar and asked if we needed something. He told us to seat ourselves, which we did. 10-15 minuteslater a server brought us menus. My mom asked about house wines, and the server said the cheapest wine was 9 dollars, she didnt know the name, and ended up being wrong. 15 minutes later with no drinks and no place settings, and just that one fruitful visit from the server, we left. Enjoy your very short run, Riverfront.

Re: “Now open: Tin Roof and Red Zone Midtown.

I'm pretty sure Coyote Ugly also has a mechanical bull on their patio.

Re: “Carl Awsumb planted a garden and grew a community.

Carl, let me state the obvious: you're AWSUMB! You're an inspiration. Let's talk soon.

Re: “Carl Awsumb planted a garden and grew a community.

I am an old friend of Carl Awsumb's ................ I live in South Africa where initiatives such as this could well be the turning point in a country on a downward spiral. Thank you for the example Carl - also for the inspiration and a shining example of how much can be achieved from very little.

Re: “Now open: Julles Posh Foods and Chef Shuttle.

Nice review of a great place to eat, but all the dinners are $17.00 not $20.00.

Re: “Huey’s at 45

What a shame that the real history has been lost. To me, Jay Sheffield and Huey's are synonymous.

Re: “Huey’s at 45

First of all the business was purchased by Jay Sheffield and Don Woods. Mr. Sheffield hired Mr. Boggs a couple of years later and when Mr. Woods left , Mr. Sheffield made Mr. Boggs a partner. Mr. Sheffield remained an owner for 40 of those 45 years. For some reason the facts are lost in the "new " history of Hueys. Its a shame.
