101 Things To Do In Memphis #58: Grind City Coffee Expo

by Melissa Thompson


From beer to burgers, and wings to margaritas, Memphis has a range of events that showcase the best local takes on our favorite food and drinks. Now, with the announcement of the inaugural Grind City Coffee Expo, the city’s coffee community is about to have its day in the sun.

Grind City Coffee Expo is set for Saturday, March 9th, at Memphis College of Art. The event is centered on celebrating the Bluff City’s burgeoning coffee scene and will feature samples and demos by local roasters and shops. Proceeds will benefit Protect Our Aquifer.

Organizers Daniel Lynn and Rachel Williams are not in the coffee business but are avid fans who say they’ve been hooked by the consistently outstanding experiences they’ve had, and have taken note of the growth in quality coffee options in Memphis.

“My love for coffee has evolved over the last couple of years starting with the first time I tasted Dr. Bean’s Cold Brew at Bedrock Eats & Sweets,” said Daniel. “I immediately reached out to them to find out more about it, and there I went. Off into the coffee ether.”

His curiosity about processes led him to build more relationships within the Memphis Coffee Community. Daniel says his goal with GCCE is to share his enthusiasm and connect more Memphians to the great roasters and shops the city has to offer.

“Over the past 2 to 3 years, the coffee culture in this city has grown exponentially with the addition of amazing roasters & shops,” said Daniel. “The people behind these great additions are amazing and so passionate about what they do, that I want to make sure they have their spotlight in the city.”

Daniel says his inspiration for creating an event came from attending The Science of Beer at the Pink Palace last year.

“It hit me. Let’s do this, but with coffee. From there, I took a look around the country and saw that there were a fair amount of events out there centered around coffee, and thought, why not Memphis. I reached out to a few roasters in town to judge interest, and they were all very into it. Shortly after that, I met Rachel, and everything clicked. We started figuring out what we would need to do logistically to make this happen, and here we are.”

Grind City Coffee Expo will feature 8 different coffee roasters and shops from Memphis. Vendors will explain their process from roasting beans to their preferred method of brewing their coffee. Expo attendees will be able to taste samples from each vendor’s chosen brewing method and decide for themselves what they prefer. Whether it’s a traditional pour over or through a Chemex, from espresso to cold brew, the various methods will be demoed at designated tables throughout the Expo.

GCCE is designed to be approachable and informative. “The goal is to provide the guest with the opportunity to discover which method they like the best and then learn how to brew it themselves at home,” said Lynn. “Coffee enthusiasts will also be able to “nerd out” with the extremely knowledgeable coffee professionals while enjoying the very best Memphis has to offer in the way of coffee. This will be the first time this many badass coffee professionals will be in the same place at the same time in the city of Memphis. It’s a coffee enthusiast’s dream.”

Daniel Lynn is a native Memphian who says he grew up all over the city. He graduated from the University of Memphis in 2007 with a degree in Recording Technology. He’s currently a sound engineer/studio manager for Music+Arts Studio, as well as the label manager for Archer & Blue Barrel Records. “I wear many hats. Music is my #1 passion,” said Daniel.

Dr. Bean’s Coffee & Tea Emporium, Vice & Virtue, Comeback Coffee, and The Avenue are confirmed for Grind City Coffee Expo. More vendors will be announced as the event approaches. Early Bird tickets will go on sale Friday, Jan. 18th. Stay up-to-date on Grind City Coffee Expo news by following on FacebookInstagram, and Twitter.

101 Things To Do In Memphis #57: Best Detective CluedUpp

by Melissa Thompson


Did Miss Scarlet do it in the FedExForum with a knife or did Professor Plum do it in The Orpheum Theatre with a rope? Only you can determine who dun it and where they did it when CluedUpp calls on you to use your detective skills on February 23rd.

CluedUpp, the hit British outdoor detective game, is making its way to downtown Memphis and it’s pretty much a live action version of the Clue board game, starring you and your pals as the master sleuths. Don your best 1920s get up (optional) and put that Nancy Drew mindset to use to solve the mystery before time runs out!

  • When: Saturday, February 23rd (10AM-5PM)
  • Where: Downtown Memphis
  • Cost: $46/team of up to 6 adults (children play free)

It’s 1921 and the bustling industrial town of Millingham, near Memphis, has awoken on a misty morning to find one of its most feared residents has been poisoned. As the smoke lifts, the rumors spread across town as to what could have happened and who could be responsible. Rest assured this isn’t going to be straightforward. With money, crime and power come enemies from all walks of life, but who would be daring enough to do this?

The local police force needs assistance with solving this crime and you have been seconded from the Murder Squad on the recommendation of the commissioner himself!. As the complicated investigation continues, a list of suspects and witnesses emerge and it’s going to take your specialist skills to help catch the culprit!

Think you have what it takes to crack the case? Put your money where your mouth is!

To play you’ll need:

  • A team of detectives (at least 2 but up to 6 players per team)
  • Access to a Smartphone
  • A great team name
  • Awesome Sneaky Finders / 1920’s inspired fancy dress (optional, but fun!)

The average squad of detectives takes just over 2 hours to solve to the mystery, but the event can last anywhere between 1 and 4 hours. The game is completely self-guided, and clues and prizes will be awarded via their downloadable app.

Prizes will be awarded to:

  • Fastest team
  • Best fancy dress (Sneaky Finders / 1920’s inspired)
  • Best team picture
  • Best team name
  • Best little detective (kids prize)
  • Best K-9 detective (dogs prize)

Register your team here.

101 Things To Do In Memphis #56: Pro Football Comes to Memphis

by Melissa Thompson

The Alliance of American Football wants to fill your post-NFL season sportsball needs, and Memphis is one of the cities where they’ve established a team. The Memphis Express start their season on February 10th and have their first home game coming up at Liberty Bowl Memorial Stadium on Saturday, February 16th. To help get you ready, here’s a look at what the AAF is, who’s involved, and what you can expect in their inaugural season.

What’s the Alliance of American Football?

The Alliance of American Football is an 8-team league:

  • Memphis Express

  • Orlando Apollos

  • Atlanta Legends

  • Salt Lake Stallions

  • Arizona Hotshots

  • San Diego Fleet

  • Birmingham Iron

  • San Antonio Commanders 

The league was founded by TV and film producer Charlie Ebersol and Hall of Famer Bill Polian, and several other notable football figures are involved. The AAF wants to fill a void felt by football fans following the Super Bowl and give players who just barely missed their shot at the NFL a second chance to go pro. It’s called the Alliance to signify a partnership between the fans, the players, and the game. They’ve placed an emphasis on being tech-savvy, allowing live streaming of games on a free Alliance app and integrated fantasy football options with “real rewards.” The league’s culture also prioritizes player safety and wellbeing by using state-of-the-art protective wear and providing players a bonus system, post-football career planning, counseling, and scholarship support for postsecondary education.

The AAF teams will play a 12-week season kicking-off February 9, 2019 on CBS and culminating with the championship game the weekend of April 26-28, 2019.

Who are the Memphis Express?

Team President: Kosha Irby

General Manager: Will Lewis

Coach: Mike Singletary

See more of the staff roster here.

Players
The players for the Memphis Express come mostly from schools in the region. Four of them are either from Memphis or played for the University of Memphis. The Memphis Express 52-player active roster for 2019:

The Memphis Express Game Experience

The AAF will be officiated under slightly different rules and will offer a different game experience from the NFL. They’re working on an official document that covers all the rule differences. A couple of examples:

  • No kickoffs or extra points. Teams must go for two.
  • Onside kicks have been replaced by a 4th & 12.
The AAF is also aiming for shorter game times hoping to entertain fans without you having to commit your full day. Game times in San Antonio during preseason averaged 2.5 hours.
 

SEASON SCHEDULE

2/10 Memphis at Birmingham
2/16 Arizona at Memphis
2/23 Memphis at Orlando
3/2 San Diego at Memphis
3/10 Memphis at Atlanta
3/16 Memphis at Salt Lake
3/24 Birmingham at Memphis
3/30 Orlando at Memphis
4/6 Memphis San Antonio
4/13 Atlanta at Memphis

Three Memphis Express games will be televised thanks to a partnership with CW30/Local 24:

  • Saturday, March 16 at Salt Lake, 3 pm
  • Saturday, March 30 vs. Orlando, 1 pm
  • Saturday, April 6 at San Antonio, 3 pm
