Midtown Bike Company appears to be working on opening a downtown store at 509 South Main next to Bluff City Coffee. While I'm not a cyclist myself, I do own a bike. However, it's so old and neglected it may no longer actually be considered a real bicycle. The City has posted bike routes on its website, click here: http://www.cityofmemphis.org/framework.aspx?page=480 and the MSTA posts information about mountain bike trails and events, http://www.midsouthtrails.com/midsouthtrails/index.html.
A funny thing happened on the way to work this morning.... I had to do a double take as I drove down Second and saw that a Raiford's discotheque (I just love to spell the whole word out) will be opening soon. Stranger things have happened. My hope is that they will mix in some current dance music along with the already classic and great songs they have had in heavy rotation since Hector was a pup. I suppose the original Raiford's (now Hollywood Disco) will stay open on Vance but I'm not sure.
