Re: “A Memory of Charles Billings

I was at WKNO TV in the early '80's and will always remember Charles running with bone phones draped around his neck in between FM on air moments. He was such an incredible, like-able, bigger than life character. He will be very missed.

Re: “The Kitchen expands with Next Door; another Mama Gaia

Is it me, or does the food described in the article not match whats in the pictures? Pictures are yummy, but FRIED, fish/seafood, right? And the article seems to describe...not that. Yummy, but not that. Just askin'.

Re: “Loeb Wants $24M Hotel in Overton Square

And...parking? It's in short supply now. Where will hotel guests park, and what will replace the lot? Most times, it's full by early afternoon.
And if Hattiloo expands again...?

Re: “What's In Store

I'm not telling anyone what to do with their money, I'm just explaining to someone who asked why what's being done sucks more than it used to.

Re: “A Memory of Charles Billings

I recall many moons ago when Sue of P & H fame got married in that very establishment, Charles was on hand to sing "Somewhere There's a Place For Us." He made a special occasion that much more special.

RIP Charles, Sue & Wanda

You are in that pic! There are so few production shots from that show, but many pictures of us in rehearsal practicing period-style bowing. Betty. Ruffin.

Re: “A Memory of Charles Billings

I was also close with La Billings.

He was one of a kind, and he was ours.
Rest In Peace, Charles.

Re: “A Memory of Charles Billings

I had the pleasure of working a Memphis Theater Awards with Charles (the emcee) in the mid-Nineties. Don't remember much about the winners that night (all talented artists). But I remember smiling the entire evening, before/during/after. And feeling like Charles and I had known each other my whole life. We'd met that night. Wonderful, large (by measures beyond physical) human being. I miss him, and am grateful for knowing him my whole life.

Re: “Tennessee Taco Opens Next Week

Well, I stopped in real quick (thinking it was still Los Compadres) ordered some guac and queso dip to go. I got 2 small (6 oz probably) containers plus the 2 HUGE boxes of chips that I'll Never Eat all of - they were cold and ucky anyway- for the outrageous price of $15. I was floored but thanked the lady, grabbed my little containers of EXPENSIVE dip and high tailed it outta there knowing it will be the LAST TIME I EVER GO THERE. WHERE IS LOS COMPADRES?

FUNKbrs and Mr Mullins, last I looked this is a private enterprise. They can control content all they want, fair and balanced or no.

Folks posting opinions under pseudonyms don't have much credibility.

Um, that should be Union at Bellevue, not Union and Belvedere. :)

It will be a risky venture. Remember the French Quarter Inn?
