Fly on the Wall 1389 

Outside the Box
There is a neat row of newspaper boxes on Main Street's pedestrian mall, just north of Madison, in front of the Elvis-themed Walgreens. In that row of newspaper boxes, between a nicely kept and neatly stocked Memphis Flyer box and a similarly maintained Commercial Appeal box, there's a filthy, rotting derelict box that's never full of anything but garbage. The sad little box at the Elvis Walgreens sends a simple message to tourists dropping in for allergy pills and a TCB T-shirt. That message: "Eat More Fat."

Halloween Scene
Speaking of Walgreens, the Halloween season is upon us. For maximum spookiness, you'll want to rush out to your corner pharmacy to pick up a bag of Jesus Harvest Seeds, scripture included with every fun-size pack of candy! Also, if you're checking out fright-night lawn displays, you'll want to swing through Uptown to see the bear playing a broken piano. Beary Lee Lewis, maybe?

Cool Things
May the Grind be with you! The Memphis Grizzlies have announced the greatest giveaway ever. A lucky 3,000 fans will receive free Tony Allen Jedi robes during the Grizzlies' December 11th game against the Charlotte Hornets. It's never too early to start camping out while dressed as Chewbacca.
