Re: “Is Meddlesome's 201 Hoplar in Bad Taste?

Ah, gentrifiers trying to be offended until Memphis stops being Memphis.

When in Rome, do as the Romans, when in Memphis, do as the Memphians.

201 Poplar isn't just a jail, it's a cultural symbol for the results of bad decision-making. A perfect example of a bad decision that could end you up in 201 Poplar would be drinking too much craft beer.

Anyone that's offended by that should kindly refrain from crossing west of East Parkway. I'm sure Nashville would be glad to have them.

Elwood's brisket is wonderful!

Re: “Best Bets: Brisket

I can vouch for Elwood's Shack brisket. Best I've had since leaving Texas but will definitely try Stanley's after reading this!

Re: “Beer With Me

All so very true. But can someone tell me as to how light/lite beer became so popular? Admittedly they snuck it in during the cocaine flood of the 70's but, now?

Re: “Beer With Me

When the Cash Saver on Madison was Piggly Wiggly, they used to carry Dixie as well as their dark beer variation called Blackened VooDoo. I used to buy it there all the time for sort of the same reason as the author's: it reminded me so much of trips to New Orleans. I wonder with all their craft connections if the Cash Saver folks could get Dixie now?

Re: “Best Bets: Brisket

Danzo, I can personally vouch for the brisket at Elwood's Shack...especially the brisket breakfast burrito. I've eaten like five times in the last 30 days. My treadmill hates me.

Also had it at Stanley's, and they know what they're doing too, as the article describes. Plus, it's a little personal for Dad was named Stanley too and also died at a similar time of year... Dec. 19. And he loved brisket (and didn't touch pork)!

Re: “The Big S: A Very Memphis Bar

I found a spelling error in the last paragraph.

It's spelled "NashVILLAIN" not "NashvillIAn"

Re: “The Big S: A Very Memphis Bar

If you're a white middle class DB millennial unable to swing that go to India and beg on the streets selfie why not go to a black bar where they serve beer in 40 oz containers! Soon the place will fill up on the weekends with DB white frat boys in boat shoes and khakis looking to appropriate someone's authenticity. Burp!

Re: “The Big S: A Very Memphis Bar

i drive in/around this neighborhood weekly; not the safest part of town to grab a frosty beverage.

Re: “The Big S: A Very Memphis Bar

I like this series. Gives me some places to check out that I've seen of heard of in my 15+ years of Memphis residency. Kudos

Re: “Best Bets: Brisket

Good brisket is at Elwood's Shack and Loflin Yard, they say.

Re: “Beer With Me

Steel Reserve 211 is 8%, highest ABV available by law.

Your logic is invalid.

Re: “Beer With Me

Busch Light was my CDB of choice in college. I dated a girl who's dad would always share one of his Hamm's. So I tried to keep a Busch Light six pack in his fridge at all times. Today, PBR is my choice brand and I am neither young nor a hipster. Still, you can beat the clean, refreshing taste of a Miller High Life pony.

Re: “Beer With Me

Lumping Budweiser in with the Nasty Lights, Milwaukee's Best, Schaeffer's and Keystones of the world is insulting. While Budweiser is not a craft level, it's still tiers above those you mentioned and is probably far and away the best mass produced beer in the US. America!

Re: “Bluefin's New Korean Menu

I'm glad you had a good experience. My recent experience there was the complete opposite. We went for dinner before the Tom Petty concert. There was only one waitress for the entire restaurant and patio. The bartender walked out while we were there. The food was mediocre at best. The Korean beef tacos were terrible with absolutely no Korean seasoning or sauce. Tables all around us were just getting up and walking out. Food kept coming out wrong to other people around us. It got to be almost comical.
