  I’ve been paying more attention to what is happening in downtown Memphis, and trying to be a part of it outside of just living and operating a store. In some cases it is as simple as following social media accounts of figures and businesses, and in others it requires more action like researching what different organizations are doing and even attending events in my free time.

A few weeks ago I attended the South Main Association Christmas party. It was at the Jack Robinson gallery on Front Street, and I had no idea what I was walking into. The party itself was what you might expect: a little mingling, a glass of wine, someone playing piano in the background. What I didn’t know was anything at all about Jack Robinson, and I quickly realized that I needed to learn. A poster on the second floor talks about his life, and you can easily miss it because of all the photographs that command your attention. He was...

I celebrated my birthday (as you know) at the Guest House at Graceland. However, for months I had known about a second opportunity to mark the occasion: seeing Dolly Parton in concert in New Orleans. I was hesitant to commit until the very week of because I had just opened the shop about a month prior, but my friend who also celebrates his birthday at the end of November had already bought the tickets. On the floor. How could I say no? After 2 of my favorite musical icons perished in 2016 (RIP David Bowie and Prince), I couldn’t risk...
