Soul Fish is opening its third location in Memphis on Thursday (Nov. 14).
The new location – which follows established Soul Fish locations in Germantown and Cooper-Young – is at 4720 Poplar Ave. in the old Wolf Camera Space.
Co-owner Raymond Williams told The Daily News recently the new location will have a patio for the first time. Customers also will be able to park in the back, where there are about 40 or so spots – “plenty of parking,” as he put it, as opposed to the quick-to-fill-up lot at Cooper-Young.
Tenn. Sen. Lamar Alexander blasted the new health care law today – particularly, the lower than expected enrollment figures (106,185 sign-ups) released by the Obama administration.
“You could fit everyone who signed up for Obamacare in the first month into Neyland Stadium – and still have room for the ‘Pride of the Southland’ marching band,” Alexander said.
In response to the president’s frequently heard promise that “If you like your health plan, you can keep it,” Alexander released a statement explaining several Republican senators want to put that phrase into law via the “If You Like Your Health Plan You Can Keep It Act.”
That legislation would allow American to remain on health plans that have been in effect through the end of this year.
Craig Brewer is giving away downloads of “The Poor & Hungry,” the movie that launched his career.
At the Poor & Hungry website, Brewer writes that making the film, about a car thief who becomes enamored of one of his victims, taught him “how to be a filmmaker – but for years no one has been able to see it or own it.”
That’s now possible by going here.
