Re: “A Visit to Riverfront Bar & Grill

I was told it was $4 to park if you dine, but there is nothing to indicate that as you pull up to park. $4 to park to purchase a sandwich or an appetizer is kind of silly, and the marvelous view is available all along the river. But hey, it's nice to get a drink from the bar and step out onto the deck to watch the sunset. Tourists will like it. Memphians? I dunno. Fine dining is really needed in this spot with valet parking.

Re: “Now Open: Riverfront Bar & Grill

The menu is spartan but more is planned in the way of entrees, I understand. Not a dinner destination yet, although the view and a nice drink are fully operational. The interior is large andl light-filled, even if very plain vanilla. The outdoor decks and seating are very nice with the best views of the river. What is totally lacking is parking. The small adjacent lot is $5 for 30 minutes and up, even though I am told diners will only be charged $4 to park. But where are you informed of that? Some signs would help. Otherwise, it's quite a jaunt to the parking lots in Tom Lee Park, and after dark, it's not the most comfortable of areas.

Re: “Where We Live Now

As long as we have and display such idiotic statements like that, you must not expect the city of Memphis to progress in any form.I have seen over the years public servants elected to office on what voters are fooled in believing are fair and impartial, simply because of the color of their skin. I was much apart of the movement for civil rights. As a lifelong Memphian who happens to be a Black American, it's time for all people to stop judging and electing officials because of the color of their skin but the dedication and determination to make things better for the people of this would be great city. Please post this statement in your memory bank and put it in your daily practices so we as a city can objectively become the city we want it to be. "WE ARE ONE"

Re: “What's Your Favorite Thing About The Commercial Appeal's Digital Redesign?

I'm glad the comments have been toned down abit. Now there's ads between the story and the comments so they don't seem to 'poison' the article as much since they're a little farther away from the story. There seems to be many fewer comments also. I say that's progress. Also, say what you will about the CA, but their sports coverage, especially of our local teams, is outstanding. That's why every morning I pull out the sports section first.

Hope more will engage in the "Not even Nominated" discussion with utmost politeness, of course.

Re: “Gripes, Groans, and Grudge Matches in Shelby County Elections

@barf

What I meant to say was that the charter cannot just be surrendered by a ballot referendum like the school charter, which was rhandy's question.

Your first statement is the operative one. The Legislature would have to approve and authorize those further actions.

Thanks for the clarification.

And you are also correct, there would be lots of legal actions.

Re: “Congratulations to All the Ostrander Award Nominees, 2013-14

Congratulations to all the nominees. No, I didn't see all the shows, but there are always some enigmas. Noticed that directors for Proof and Music Man were not nominated but the shows were nominated for Best Production. FYI, didn't see either, but just noticed. I did see "RED" and thought both actors were outstanding, but only the lead got nominated. Stuff happens, huh?

@MD

I sure hope she is not some sweet girl scout. That's not the kind of of DA I want.

Unfounded and defaming accusations of personal misconduct directed at Ms Weirich by Mr. Brown and his campaign is another matter altogether.

Re: “Gripes, Groans, and Grudge Matches in Shelby County Elections

AP-
Just to add to your notes about charter surrender, technically it can be done. However, not only would it require a special/local/ private act of the General Assembly, it would also require local two-thirds vote of the local legislative body of the municipality, OR require approval in an election by a majority of those voting in said election in the municipality effected. Regarding financial obligations, while there would no doubt be lots of legal action, state law is actually very clear on that matter.

Re: “The Political Ad Game I: The Doppelgänger Effect

ArlingtonPub,

I have nothing to do with the Joe Brown campaign (either one of them) but just pointing out that sweet Amy isn't quite the girl scout you all portray her to be. And like you, I prefer not to bring attention to my personal self.
