They'll be blasting off the fireworks tomorrow night (Saturday) to close out Memphis in May's @901Fest on the riverfront. Here's a shot I made from last year's show.

Just a few months ago this place was crowded with metal lathes, presses and other oil-soaked machine-shop equipment that had been there for decades. Yesterday, the main room was empty at the William C. Ellis & Sons property. Said to be the oldest Memphis business that was still operating in its original location, the property on South Front Street is being cleared for demolition, sold to make way for a high-rise project called One Beale.

Mary Anderson, a real estate developer from Alabama, was granted a patent in 1903 for inventing the windshield wiper. Thanks, Mary, it makes it a lot easier to see when some idiot cuts in front of you at the last minute before an intersection in the pouring rain.

I stopped by Brooks Museum of Art tonight to check out the temporary Tape Art installation before it's taken down tomorrow (Wednesday 5.24) between 4-7 p.m. My experiences with blue painter's tape have never resulted in anything resembling art, or even a neat paint job, so my hat's off to the folks who created this.

Many of the 236 teams competing in the World Championship Barbecue Cooking Contest in Memphis work (and party) in booths as artfully put together as the barbecue being cooked there. This booth was put up by the Love Meat Tender team; Colombia is this year's Memphis In May honored country.
