EZ Weaves

After years of chasing recognition, Memphis officially became a World Class City ™ last week when a large, purple vending machine for hair weaves arrived at Wolfchase Galleria.

The Diamond Dynasty weave machine offers a variety of fancy hair options ranging in length and style and priced from $55-$80. TV newscasters said the vending machine will be a convenience for people who may need to change their look on the go. Like spies, maybe?

We're #2...

In a story about the city's declining murder rate, the Associated Press ran with the headline, "Killings Down in Tennessee's Second Most Populous City." It seems unnecessarily baroque and maybe a little shady even.

Verbatim

"Late at night and into the early morning hours, customers engage in so-called 'money wars.' The stacks of bills Dennis is bundling will be sold out of a duffel bag at the edge of the stage, minus 10 percent. In other words, $900 singles will cost you $1,000. In order to show off who has the most money to burn, customers will shower the girls with bills, competing with each other to make it rain money the hardest." — Excerpted from "Money Wars at a Memphis Strip Club," Forbes.
