Re: “The Bradford at the Deluxe Arcade

My organization had an event at The Bradford during which an exposed PVC pipe (believed to be out of code) was protruding from the wall in the room with the dance floor, and broke. The pipe began to heavily spout water into the room, which quickly flooded. The venue owner was present and turned the building's water off. The owner offered us a second, smaller, room in which to continue our event while the water in the first room could be cleaned up. About 10 minutes later, however the fire alarms in the building went off due to more water leaking into the system in the basement. The event guests evacuated the building and the fire department arrived determining that the pipe was out of code and that the alarm went off due to water leaking therefore there was no immediate danger. The organization's event coordinators made the decision to send all guests home (175 patrons) since the venue had no running water, or therefore plumbing. The venue owner stated to the event coordinators that the due to the incidents the night would be on her. Since the event, the venue owner only offered a "make up" event at The Bradford free of charge. She stated that this would have to be used by the same organization for the same event to be valid. Our organization does not want to hold the event a second time, and believes we deserve a monetary refund. The owner believes that since costs on her part were incurred during the event she does not owe us any refund. My organization believes that not only was the event cut short due to issues with the venue (we had to leave nearly halfway through our contracted time at the venue), but the terms and conditions promised in the contract were not met, and therefore our money should be returned to us regardless of the venue's event cancellation policy. Since the pipe did not break by the fault of an event attendee, and therefore is the liability of the venue, and the venue failed to provide running water and working plumbing, the amount paid by the organization to the Bradford should be refunded. The venue owner has since retracted her offer of an event credit at the venue, and now is threatening to assess all damages caused by the faulty plumbing (all plumbing repairs, flooring needing replacement, etc), and take my organization to court over this.
The venue owner throughout this process has been difficult to get in contact with and has changed her account of the incident significantly when speaking to representatives of our organization.

Re: “B.B. King's Blues Club

My food was excellent. Ribs just fell off the bones. Took a little time, but the music was so good and the food so good, you did not mind. The waiter we had was very personable and courteous. Have eaten there before and will ent anytime I have the opportunity. Sorry for those who had problems. I would recommend people try for themselves, different strokes for different folkes.

Re: “Front St. Deli

The place sure has changed! First of all the phone number is different 901.522.4824 The food has changed too! Lee was awesome but the biscuits are now better! Some of the old favorites are still on the menu but there are a few great new options. The Chariot 'o fire is an awesome buffaloed chicken salad sandwich and the roasted vegetable sandwich will tempt you to give up meat forever.

Re: “Bar Louie

Great place to sit and have drinks. I love the calamari appetizer too. Always had people come to check on me right when I sat down, so I have no idea what Bill was talking about... of course, I'm not a jerk to staff, and I do tip.

Re: “Wild Bill's

This is where the original Memphis Walk (pre-Jookin') dancers hang out. We rented it one night for a Nut ReMix cast party and Lil Buck danced with these fore-bearers of the art form. It was a stunning evening. Kids can't go because smoking is allowed, but you can catch some of the best REAL Memphis music in town here. Thank goodness it is still there.

Re: “A. Schwab

Best spot to chop for stocking stuffers at Christmas. it's also a terrific place to find props for plays and events. Great place to throw a party on the mezzanine with interesting things for guests to browse and a terrific brand new old fashioned ice ream parlor. We love this place!

Re: “Cafe Ole

There's nothing authentic about this "Mexican" restaurant. And I haven't been since they came under new management. However they do have the best bacon wrapped shrimp I've ever had.

I love going to the AMUM to visit with the Egyptian collection there. When I was a student at the U of M, I would go visit to relax and take a break.

Re: “Broad Avenue Art District

We must get the people to know as well as recognize that this is Midtown Memphis! It's imperative that we get signs posted on Broad Street to inform the visitors and allow them to know where Midtown begins on Broad Street! It's been said the lines or the railroad trackside going West on Broad separate Midtown from the Binghampton community..
I luv this area, it's beginning to look like a Cooper-Young area, in the heart of Memphis!

Crisp modern aesthetic meets fairly low cost / high quality Pizza with the customization options of Subway. Great new addition to Union Ave!
