They sell beer, so I believe it's cool and the show lasts 1.5 - 2 hours max, so usually you don't have to suffer drunken fools.
I agree CEBorst. I always get a little paranoid about smuggling in beer though. I usually only take in 2 or 3 but I keep waiting for some overzealous security guard to hassle me.
The Levitt Shell concert series is such a great event for everyone; singles, couples and families. A six pack or a bottle of wine, cheese and crackers/veggies and dip ... and all less than 2 miles from the house. I just leave the lawn chairs in the truck.
My prediction. Walt dies from cancer. But, the events were not real, but dreams on his death bed. Heisenberg is the name of the doctor treating him.
Love the patterned top under the sheer beaded top. I am definitely going to give that a try!
Vanderbilt is in the top 20 preseason. That is a sign of the End of Times.
Concerning Breaking Bad, I don't know.
"Back in the day, I wrote a set of predictions on the eve of the final season of Lost."
Its a new day, and I guess others are as interested now as they were then.
"I haven't been as excited and wrapped up in a final season since then until now, with Breaking Bad. The last season — or, more correctly, the last half of the last season — begins airing this Sunday on AMC."
19 days till the pigskin flies off the toe of some undergrad.
But, I do hope you and everyone enjoys the "Luke & Laura" moment. I will enjoy the upcoming Commodores and Rebels.
Both will be about as consequential as a Flyer Fly dropping a turd.
Gil and Liz are such great people working really hard to offer a great product for the world! Love that they call Memphis home!
You forgot the FREE August 9th re-scheduled broadcast of the QUEEN movie at the Levitt Shell.
"McDaniel's modern yet rustic style draws inspiration from classic American and Scandinavian mid-century design." No, they look like a direct copies of well known designs.
The Chinese Sub Shop on Highland (By Whatever, if it hasn't moved yet.) Maybe it's actually named the "Super Submarine Sandwich Shop"?- is so good. Every year when I vote, I cannot believe they have to written in.
I always expect to see them in at least the Best Lunch category.
I'm not really sure how places are nominated. I don't know if it's an action the business takes, the Flyer, the readers, or the patrons, but do yourself a favor and go eat a Sub before they widen that road. They seem unsure about whether they'll move when that happens or close.
"Hard or soft roll?"
"You get chips."
As far as the other categories, I don't hate any of the nominees, I think it's all about preference. Maybe you like water chestnuts while they make me gag, or like food you can eat with sticks vs. someone else who wants a roll to sop gravy off their plate with.
You may love Huey's (I enjoy the place just fine) while I prefer my burgers from Velvet Cream (which I would need to write in) or Dyer's.
People enjoy themselves fully in different settings, they prefer a different ambience, I guess the word is.
What I do like is that they all contribute something positive to a city that really IS a wonderful place, but sadly is misjudged and written off many times by people who either don't explore it, or judge it by the perception they get from a distance.
So this is a good thing.
A lot of people come into Memphis specifically for Graceland, and everything around it is dirty, not so safe, abandoned, and embarrassing.
If I came here to see Elvis' house and stayed near it for convenience and only saw that spot of Memphis, I do not think I'd be back.
But, it has a lot to offer, so like I said, I appreciate seeing the participation and results each year.

$2 pitchers make any pizza better.
Obviously you don't understand the subtleties of Asian cuisine either.
I think they meant the best of Memphis in 2013, not in 1971. I haven't seen a Shakey's since I was in elementary school. I might think it horrible if I encountered Shakey's pizza again, sort of like Hostess Ding Dongs. Shakey's was all about the atmosphere. By that standard, Memphis' best restaurant was The Luau.
Best pizza: Shakey's
Best burger: Frosty Top on Getwell
Best BBQ: Beretta's Park & Highland
Best Sportscaster: Charlie B. Watson
Best news Anchor: Dick Hawley
Best Weatherman: Dave Brown, he's as old as I am.
Granny Clampett's (actually she was a Moses) lye soap lives on.
Good luck, to these independent business entrepreneurs.
Don't really know the guys who read the news.
Rarely eat a burger out, have 'em too often at home on the grill.
Being a NYer, I have a hard time with the subtleties of BBQ.
Last time I was at Sekisui my meal was free, their was a dead roach on my dragon roll plate. (true)
Memphis Pizza Café is good thin crust, but can't hold a candle to NY pizza.
Buster's is way cheaper than Joe's.
Haven't been to Burk's since they moved off Poplar.
And Tobacco Corner is a bit too far out east for this Midtowner to frequent.
Memphis Pizza Cafe is my favorite pizza because the crust is so thin.
Dave Brown is my favorite weather guy because (a) he's been around all my life and (b) he doesn't try to scare everyone to death about normal weather events.
Sorry. I don't care for Joe Birch. I saw him somewhere 20 years ago and though he was one of the best-looking men I'd ever seen in person. But nowadays I don't care for the way he delivers the news, as if the world is coming to an end each and every day at 5PM when the "breaking news" is delivered. I realize it's somebody else's call that he deliver the news that way.
We are all creatures of habit. Why do you think the same politicians are elected over and over again? Same reason why these same businesses and personalities win BOM. Or as Jeff said "All the winners are stupid, except for the ones I agree with."
