Six Memphis-area ‘Diners’ Filmed for Food Network Series

Guy Fieri was in Memphis last week visiting a handful of the city’s budding eateries for his Food Network show, Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives.

The show features Fieri traveling the country in his red 1967 Chevy Camaro convertible for classic “greasy spoon” restaurants, bars and roadside shacks based on viewer suggestions.

“Wrappin up a great DDD shoot in Memphis and stayed at the awesome @PeabodyMemphis, wait’ll you guys see these joints!” @GuyFieri tweeted Tuesday, May 8.

Fieri filmed tutorials of how to make best-selling menu items with the chefs of Elegant Farmer, Rizzo’s Diner, Three Angels Diner and South of Beale in Memphis and Memphis BBQ Co. and Memphis Street Café in Mississippi. All six restaurants have opened within the past few years.

The show(s) will air later this summer. Other restaurants Fieri has spotlighted on his show in the past include The Little Tea Shop, Uncle Lou’s Fried Chicken, Alcenia’s and Tom’s BBQ.

Donors will get several museum gifts as well as recognition within the museum as Class One Trainmasters.

LeMoyne-Owen Receives Federal Grant For STEM Program

Congressman Steve Cohen and LeMoyne-Owen College President Johnnie B. Watson Friday announced the details of a three-year federal Minority Science and Engineering Improvement Program (MSEIP) grant worth more than $700,000.

“As the only college in the state of Tennessee to be awarded this highly competitive grant, we’re thrilled and truly grateful for these crucial resources,” Watson said. “Science and technology are the driving forces behind jobs that emerge nearly every day in our country, and these funds will be used to prepare our students to successfully compete in the ever-evolving job market.”

LeMoyne-Owen will use the funds to lay a foundation for 12 sophomore students to improve their performance in the college’s Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) program. Selected students will receive a stipend of up to $6,000 a year to defray normal educational expenses in an effort to reduce their work hours, thereby increasing the number of hours they can devote to their studies and community service.

The students also will be housed in a designated dormitory to encourage academic and professional camaraderie.

“This kind of dynamic goes on at Ivy League schools, where students develop close-knit working relationships that go beyond their college years and into their professional lives,” Watson said. “These enduring relationships serve to increase the likelihood of higher academic achievement and professional success.”

Colliers International Memphis Benefits St. Jude Via Social Media

Colliers International Memphis recently participated in its parent company’s “Everyone Gives” social media giving campaign, benefiting several locally-based charities, including St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.

In addition to raising $4,000 in pledges through the Everyone Gives website, St Jude won special recognition and a $2,500 award from Colliers International for being one of the top three charities in attracting the most cities across the world to make pledges.

Gene Woods, president of Colliers Memphis, said it was especially meaningful to have Gina Dalrymple present the $2,500 bonus award to St. Jude along with her daughter, Kendal.

“At our local kick-off for the campaign, Gina, a marketing and leasing assistant in our asset services office, made the St. Jude story very real for all of us by sharing her personal experience,” Woods said.

“Two years ago on this exact day, I took my youngest daughter Kendal to the doctor with what we thought might be the flu,” Dalrymple shared at the kick-off. “It turned out that Kendal had a very rare form of leukemia called APL, so rare in fact that St. Jude sees an average of only three patients a year with it. In 1962 when St. Jude opened, APL had virtually no chance of survival. Now the survival rate for patients with APL is greater than 80 percent. My hope is that generous donations to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital through campaigns like Everyone Gives will not only allow families like ours to continue to receive free treatment, but to hear that their research has made the survival rate 100 percent.”

Overall, “Everyone Gives” raised $741,213 in just 17 days. More than 12,000 individuals in 474 cities donated to 1,479 charities. Participants made donations of every size to charities of their choice and were encouraged to use their social networks to invite friends, families and colleagues to give.
