Biggs: Cousins Maine Lobster is the new truck in town

The grand opening of Cousins Maine Lobster food truck is Saturday, March 2, at Crosstown Brewing. In a city bursting with food trucks – we have about 500, though most of them are not out regularly – I believe this is our first chain truck. Don’t look to me to complain, though: This menu sounds fabulous and people who have eaten at them in other cities tell me the food is great.

Like it or not, Memphis liquor stores ramp up for Sunday wine sales

Like it or not, Memphis liquor stores ramp up for Sunday wine sales

Some Memphis-area liquor stores on Friday started scrambling their work schedules after Gov. Bill Haslam signed a law allowing Sunday liquor sales.

Others pressed the pause button.

“We’re making the personal decision to wait until July to open,'' said Britton Long, assistant manager of Buster's Liquors & Wines in East Memphis. The wait allows the store's 43 employees to "psychologically prepare'' for working on Sundays, he said.

Tour The Old Dominick Distillery

Tour The Old Dominick Distillery

Last week, I had the chance to tour the Old Dominick Distillery. I posted some photos online and told a few people about my visit. The most common question I got was “when does it open?”

Y’all, it’s open! They opened on May 1, 2017. It’s all up to you now. The last time I snooped around over there was when it was still under construction, so it was very cool to see the finished space. The distillery is very pretty. I’m gonna go ahead and say it’s beautiful.

I’m not going to give away the whole tour or anything, but I will give you all the information I know.
