Re: “City Council Votes to End Beale Street Cover Charge

Chalk this up as a win for Memphis.

The whole point of Beale Street is that it's a place you can go even when you're broke and down on your luck. That's the quintessential story of the Blues, and to see people trying to suppress that indomitable spirit using spurious taxes masked as "fees" is frankly un-Memphian, un-Southern, and un-American.

Re: “Lexington vs. Memphis: A Tale of Two Cities

Must be new to Lexington. Lots of inaccuracies about Lexington. Keeneland runs more than 4 weeks. Lexington has LOTS of industry - Lexington has amazon and let us not forget the largest producer of peanut butter in the world. I could go on...Ashland oil and Valvoline are located in Lexington as well. And there is only ONE TRUE hot brown recipe.

This is very sad. I was there in October 2017 I loved the chili! Is there a way I could get the recipe for it?

Re: “Elvis Presley's Mystery Train (Station)

So, I realize this is a REALLY old thread but I'll take the shot anyway. I've been searching for my maternal grandfather for years. He never knew my mother (she was in foster homes and later adopted, then back in homes). She spent her entire life looking for him until she died in 2013. I've picked up the search. His name was Fred Preston Marshall and I know that he owned a barber shop which, I just learned today, was named Town and Country on Poplar. I'm sure he is long dead now as he would be 103 but I'm looking for ANYONE who may have known him. I most especially would like to find a photograph (Obituary maybe? - no luck on that search). Would be endlessly grateful for any crumbs.

Re: “Spaghetti Warehouse Closing

Good riddance to a bad restaurant that hung on far too long. Sympathies to the employees, who I hope will all find better jobs very soon. Here's hoping the property will attract a new tenant or buyer capable of transforming the establishment into a civic asset worthy of the property's somewhat enviable location.

Re: “Spaghetti Warehouse Closing

The spagetti was a very special place when I was a kid. One of the only places where my family would go downtown in the 90s and since I loved downtown, and bread, I loved it. My grandparents who are now long gone, had the whole family for a few of their wedding anniversary there. I loved the then unusual quirky decor, I loved the garlic butter, I loved the giant jawbreakers for sale. It may not be the best food you can get in town for the money anymore, but it meant a lot to me Ill be going have one last meal there this week, or at least before they close. Spin street, spagetti warehouse, the fairgrounds, the coliseum, the pyramid an ugly bait shop, Peabody place, the long gone liberty land, etc etc. ugh. Sad week for memphis nostalgia, unfortunately not really a new thing for us. At least the trolleys are coming back and crosstown was revitalized.

Re: “City Unveils $160M Fairgrounds Redevelopment Plan

The City and Mayor have once again run roughshod over the input and desires of citizens, neighbors and stakeholders and are in the process of handing over a huge piece of land in the city center to greedy developers. The neighbors from Orange Mound to South Memphis to Midtown to East Memphis have spoken loudly at the sham public input meetings about the need for a community space to serve the underserved youth of Memphis. And yet, the Mayor has once again shown lack of leadership in proposing retail stores in the age of online shopping and Youth Sports for those who can afford to travel across the country to elite tournaments, ignoring the needs of children just blocks down the street where poverty and crime define lives. Throwing a bone of the repurposing of Melrose High School won't assuage this travesty, Mayor. Follow the money and the developers, folks. The fix has been in on this for ten years, since the first Fair Ground proposal. There was a huge public outcry at the meeting against this unproven, one-trick-pony, unsustainable plan. Think, Mud Island fiasco.

Re: “Spaghetti Warehouse Closing

Very sad news. I work downtown and this was my favorite place to have lunch for the past 22 years. My coworker and I have plans to be there as many times as possible before they close the doors for good. We will truly muss it!

Re: “Memphis Animal Shelter Sees All-Time High Save Rate in October

Our YTD euthanasia numbers are down in every category: most significantly in the space category, but also in medical, behavior (this category has decreased the least), and owner-requested euthanasia.

Re: “Memphis Animal Shelter Sees All-Time High Save Rate in October

Is there a corresponding increase and the number of animals put down due to sickness or behavior?
