It felt like a Friday, but it was only a dream. I was on s mission to hit 3 events in 1 night. It went a little something like this!!
First up was the Sushi Jimmi VIP Party. I love Sushi Jimmi! He was the first person to let me do a review of his food truck and I'm forever grateful for that opportunity. I've come a long way since then, but Jimmi has always been very cool and supportive.
Sushi Jimmi has hands down the best sushi you can get in Memphis. Yes I said it and I will accept any sushi challenge any day! His passion and attention to detail is uncanny. I have no clue how he does it.
The party was great and lots of people showed up to show support. I even saw Holly Whitfield of ILoveMemphis blog and Angie Steele there!
Next stop of the evening was to Memphis Slim House to see a discussion panel put together by one of the dopest guys I've ever met, Eso Tolson. He's the guy behind the Spectacular Venacular. I really want one of those prints on my wall!!
The panel featured some awesome people discussing their art and how they came to be and what motivates them to continue. I love seeing local Memphians doing positive things!! It's so inspiring!!
Last stop was to the same spot I went Tuesday and I'm in no way ashamed about it!
I had to some to LBOE for their Beat the Clock Thursday special!! $1 beers starting at 8 that increase 25 cents each 15 mins. Its a challenge I accept gladly!
I decided to go with the Ghost River Gold last night. It was my first time having it. I'm normally a Fireside kinda fella, but change can be good. I enjoyed it along with the Voodoo chips I was snuck out lol.
The night ended with me having a debate with a guy at the bar about the buns of the LBOE burgers. He said they were too thick, but I think they are the perfect thickness to hold that huge burger.
And that was my Thursday. 3 events in one night! Friday should be equally exciting!! Get out there and enjoy this weekend! Downtown will be a bit crowded due to the St Jude Marathon, but don't let that deter you.
