the FIX: Memphis
Georgia Gets Wise— Memphis-based brewery, Wiseacre, grew the total number of states it serves to 9 when it launched statewide distribution in Georgia yesterday (Oct. 1). Welcome to the family peaches. We highly recommend the Tiny Bomb. The brewery is also making three of its specialty brews available all year long. The Regular Pale Ale, the Beach within Reach Berliner Weisse, and the Xanadu Hazy IPA (part of the "MemFresh" IPA series). The brewery’s new production facility is expected to open downtown next year. Wiseacres rejoice… and, bottoms up. Veggie Adventures—Jennifer Biggs and Chris Herrington over at the Daily Memphian have gone beyond the extra mile to give you the hook up on a Memphis classic; the vegetable plate. One month, 17 restaurants, and about 100 servings of vegetables. That’s a lot of yams and fried okra. Oh and yes, mac & cheese is a vegetable. Their favorites? Check ‘em all out here. And go get your veggie plate on! Midtown Goes Po’— Fans of The Atomic Tiki in midtown said goodbye with their last volcano bowls and long island iced tikis this past Saturday when the establishment closed its doors for good. But don’t fret. Coming soon to that same space is Parish Grocery, a New Orleans style shop featuring 15 different kinds of po-boys. From classics like fried oyster, fried shrimp, and roast beef with debris; to the more progressive, like root beer glazed ham. Lunch Downtown?— You’re welcome.
