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 and I!!

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!!

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.  

Look who also stopped by LBOE!!

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.  

Life is for Living,
