Moxy Bar & Hotel Slated to Open December 6th
11/21/2019 4:08pm

Someone with a lot of moxie came up with the concept of Moxy. The slogan for the bar and hotel, which is slated to open December 6th at 40 North Front, is, If you got guts, you got Moxy, says general manager Curtis Pandes. Its Marriotts response to Airbnbs and independent hotels. Moxy, which is a chain of Marriott hotels, is a disruptive brand, says operations manager Ryan Marsh. We go against trends, norms. Moxy is for the fun seeker. Even the grand opening, which is December 6th, isnt called a grand opening. Its the hotels coming out party, Pandes says. Just about everything is the opposite of what youd find in a conventional hotel. There are no bellmen, deskmen, or other hotel job titles. All employees are referred to as crew members. Their uniform consists of jeans, T-shirts, and tennis shoes. Moxy crew members have a smart-casual approach to service, Pandes says. Everyone is on a first-name basis. The lobby, called the public space, features a 360-degree bar which serves as the front desk, a spot for morning coffee, and the place to go for drinks later, Marsh says. When guests check in, they are given a complementary Moxy cocktail made with Bacardi dragon-berry vodka. Theyre also greeted with Moxys own aroma. Theres a scent machine on all the entrances that gives you that Moxy smell, Marsh says. The Moxy smell, in case you were wondering, is wood and jasmine infused and features a burst of Italian and zesty lemon invigorated by a green floral heart with nuances of creamy woods white amber and musk. Its also available in Moxy candles. Marsh says Moxy will also serve smoked cocktails, including a smoked hemp cocktail with CBD oils. There will also be a curated selection of wines, spirits, and regional craft beer unique to Memphis. A variety of espressos are available, including ghost pepper, aged-barrel rum, maple syrup, and whiskey, as well as in-house-made doughnuts and local Mexican pastries. The public space includes pinball machines. as well as foosball and shuffleboard. Social media is displayed on the giant Moxy Board above the shuffleboard table. Pandes says Moxys public space and patio arent just for guests the public also is invited to hang out and play. The meeting room is called the collaboration room and includes a communal table and two barn doors to close it off from the public space. The 1,500-square-foot porch overlooks Court Square and includes two large fire pits and music speakers, plus a 700-square-foot bocce court. Moxy features 115 rooms and four suites, with room numbers crafted by the National Ornamental Metal Museum. Bedrooms feature king-sized or double beds and the fastest WiFi in Memphis. Another local touch are the drink coasters made by ARCHd Memphis. Moxy wants guests to get out, come downstairs and play or get out in the city. Or go to the gym, which includes a punching bag and a stationary bicycle thats a converted city cruiser bike. Whether youre 19 or 99, if you love to have fun, this is the place for you, Marsh says.

Hearing to Modify Consent Decree on Police Surveillance Set for July
11/21/2019 2:53pm

The city will get to make its case for modifying the 1978 consent decree prohibiting police surveillance in July. Earlier this month, U.S. District Judge Jon McCalla denied the citys motion to immediately significantly modify the 1978 Kendrick Consent Decree. The city argued that the decree prohibits the Memphis Police Department MPD from using other agencies or persons as surrogates to do indirectly what it could not do directly, preventing coordination between law enforcement agencies. But McCalla denied the request, saying that because all parties have not agreed to the modification of the consent decree, there would have to be an evidentiary hearing before the court could make a ruling. Thursday McCalla said an evidentiary trial hearing on that matter is set preliminary for July 17th. Then, the court will review all of the information its received and make a decision on if the consent decree should be modified and if so, what changes should be made. The team appointed to ensure and monitor MPDs compliance to the consent decree gave its third progress update to the court Thursday. At Thursdays hearing, Rachel Levinson-Waldman, the monitoring teams social media and public policy expert, discussed the social media policies for federal agencies. Levinson-Waldman said the FBI and IRS are the only two agencies that use social media for investigative purposes and have a publicly available policy. The FBI guidelines allows for collecting First-Amendment-protected information only if its related to an authorized investigation. The collection will not interfere with the individuals Constitutionally protected rights, and if the method of investigation is the least intrusive alternative. Levinson-Waldman said that these guidelines mirror language in the 1978 Consent Decree. Generally, the FBI guidelines allow for more intrusive investigative methods as the level of the investigated increases. One key piece of the FBI guideline Levinson-Waldman noted is that during an inquiry, unless related to federal crimes or national security, the agency is allowed to search and review public social media accounts, but is prohibited from using fictitious personas or engage in undercover activity. MPDs use of the undercover Facebook account of Bob Smith was one of the violations noted in McCallas ruling last fall. The account friended more than 200 activists. One of the takeaways from Thursdays hearing for local activist Hunter Dempster is that there arent many clear, outlined policies nationally of local and federal law enforcement agencys social media use. From the get-go, a lot of us have said that is going to be one of the most important elements that comes out of this entire process, Dempster said. I think we have an opportunity to set the standard for the rest of the country. I think its important to look at what other federal and local departments have done, but I think we need to pave a new path forward. At the center needs to be people and their civil rights, not necessarily public safety. The monitoring team and the city were given until Tuesday, November 26th to submit the most recent draft of the new MPD social media policies and training procedures, as well as an audit and compliance plan to the court. The monitor team is looking to hold focus groups early next year. Dr. Sheila Peters, an associate professor of physiology at Fisk University will lead those groups. McCalla said this is an important piece of the process as everyone is entitled to be heard. Attorneys for city questioned if the discussions from the focus group will be used for evidentiary purposes. McCalla said the discussions wont be evidence but important input. The groups will create space for the public to bring new concerns to the table and gather public sentiment, he said.

CannaBeat: Cohen Pushes 'Landmark' Cannabis Legislation
11/21/2019 2:52pm

When the House Judiciary Committee approved a landmark and historic cannabis reform bill yesterday, Memphis was there pushing it right along. The committee approved the Marijuana Opportunity Reinvestment and Expungement MORE Act. The legislation would decriminalize cannabis at the federal level, reassess and expunge past cannabis convictions, and fund a series of programs to help those unduly affected by the War on Drugs. Memphis Rep. Steve Cohen, a senior member of the Judiciary Committee and a longtime cannabis advocate, voted to advance the MORE Act to the House floor. The committee vote was 24 to 10. These failed and racist policies disproportionately affected communities of color, Cohen said in a statement after the vote. The effects extend well beyond arrest and prosecution. This bills expungement provisions help those convicted of non-violent marijuana offenses fully reintegrate into society and pursue their potential. Without a criminal record, they will be better able to find good jobs, access housing, and vote. Im proud to advance this measure to the House floor and look forward to voting for it there. In January, Cohen introduced the Compassionate Access, Research Expansion and Respect States CARERS Act. It will allow access to medical marijuana for patients in states where marijuana is legal without fear of federal prosecution. He also introduced the Fresh Start Act which would expunge criminal records for non-violent offenders with seven years of good behavior. Watch Cohens committee remarks on the MORE Act below:

Hot Diggity Dog
11/21/2019 2:18pm

Dance parties, hot dogs, and more at Doghouzz. Doghouzz is finally open, bringing gourmet hot dogs to the Crosstown neighborhood. The humble hot dog has long been a fixture of birthday parties, baseball games, and 4th of July barbecues, so its easy to equate them with summertime. But after stumbling into Doghouzz on a cold, rainy November afternoon, its clear that hot dogs are more than just summer food theyre comfort food in its purest form, and no one does comfort food quite like Memphis, no matter the season. Everybody loves hot dogs, says Joey Betterton, manager of Doghouzz. But Memphis didnt really have any good hot dog spots before. So restaurant partners Ray Rico, Steve Murphy, and Robert Taylor sought to fill that void by bringing a gourmet hot dog bar to the old Metro space across from Crosstown Concourse. The 4,400-square-foot space is equipped with a full bar, a pool table, a jukebox, and a patio in the back. Renovations have been going on since about May, Betterton says. The roof fell in at the beginning of the year. After that, we got everything rolling, but its been an endeavor. The menu features a number of specialty hot dog selections, including a Chicago-style dog and a New York-style dog, but theres also the option to build your own hot dog by choosing from a variety of toppings like bacon, veggies, avocado, and different slaws. Doghouzz currently serves three types of dogs: a classic Hebrew National all-beef frank, a slightly spicy andouille sausage, and a vegan braised carrot dog served on your choice of vegan bun. Get the cheese, Steve Murphy whispers to me as Im perusing toppings, but its not a hard sell. Ill put cheese on just about anything. It was the right choice. In fact, everything I tasted at Doghouzz was outstanding. As someone who lived in Illinois for a year and New York for six years, Im no hot dog novice and its worth noting these are not your typical boiled, bland, movie theater-style hot dogs. Doghouzz dogs are closer to what youd find at a family cookout: each dog bursting with the smoky, savory flavor youd expect of a hot dog plucked straight from the grill. It tastes like everything youd want a hot dog to taste like: Americana. Murphy, who is originally from Illinois, oversees the kitchen and brings a little yankee flare to the menu. The mac and cheese is cooked on a griddle, which gives it a nice, crisp texture. The chunky potato salad is served with the skins on and with a hint of dill, giving it a sharp, almost piquant flavor. The Doghouzz-style slaw is fresh, crunchy, creamy, and tangy without being sour or slimy like some slaws tend to be. And all of the sides, except for the chili, are made in-house. All of these are Steves secret recipes, Betterton says. The grand opening celebration was held on November 18th, but the party didnt stop there Doghouzz will continue to host Saturday night dance parties with DJ Record Player every week. Were going to try to make it like a club vibe here, Betterton says. Were going to be 21 and up after 10 p.m., but before that, were all-ages. Doghouzz is open from 11 a.m. until 3 a.m. every day except Sunday, making it one of the few places for super-late-night eats in the area especially on weeknights. People need an addition to our constellation of bar-hops, Betterton says. Doghouzz is also available to host events, and theyll offer food delivery via apps like DoorDash and BiteSquad. Theyre also continuing to flesh out the space itself: We have this library ladder that we have yet to install, so well be able to glide across the bar and reach everything really well, says Betterton. Its going to be really whimsical. I like that a lot. Its been a long time coming, but we love this space, Betterton adds. Everything we did in here, we did ourselves. So its all made with love. The Doughouzz is at 1349 Autumn, 207-7770.

Bogus Ballot Battle on Hold; Candidates Line Up for 2020
11/21/2019 4:00am

So whats the status of the bogus ballot question, which was due to be given a post-election judicial hearing last week On hold is the answer. Several factors have intervened to postpone a finalreckoning about the legality of sample ballots circulated at election time by entrepreneurs on behalf of candidates willing to pay potentially thousands of dollars to have themselves endorsed by shell organizations. One factor was a heart attack suffered by retired Circuit Court Judge William B. Acree of Jackson, who was imported before the election to rule on the propriety of pay-for-playballots circulated by organizations calling themselves the Greater Memphis Democratic Club and the Shelby County Democratic Club, respectively. The former is operated by Greg Grant, the latter by M. Latroy Alexandria-Williams. Neither organization has an actual connection to any official organ of the Democratic party, and both endorsed candidates with demonstrable Republican connections in sample ballots mailed and handed out to prospective voters. Lawyer John Marek, a candidate for Memphis City Council in the recent city election, the Shelby County Democratic Party, and the Young Democrats of Shelby County all joined on a request for an injunction against circulation of the ballots. Acree wound up hearing the case when all local judges, most of whom had previously patronized such ballots, recused themselves. With three hours to go before the polls closed on election day, October 3rd, the judge issued a temporary restraining order against further circulation of the ballots and scheduled a follow-up hearing for last Wednesday, November 13th, to consider a permanent ruling on the matter. Judge Acrees heart attack was not the only event to intervene against that schedule.Defendant Alexandria-Williams, as was his right, filed a notice of removal of the case from state to federal jurisdiction.For his part, Grant has of yet not made a decision to join in the notice of removal. The case now rests in the hands of U.S. District Judge Sheryl Lipman, who has not yet ruled on whether she intends to keep the case or remand it back to state court. Nor have the attorneys for the plaintiffs Bruce Kramer, Jake Brown, and MelodyDernocoeur at Apperson Crump decided on whether to seek the remand themselves. A goal of the attorneys, incidentally, in whatever is the final court of record, is a ruling of unjust enrichment, whereby the ballot entrepreneurs would be required to forfeit theprofits they made from the sale of their endorsements. The 2019 Memphis city election may have come to a finish with the conclusion of last Thursdays runoff elections for two city council positions in District 1 and District 7, won by Rhonda Logan and Michalyn Easter-Thomas, respectively. But 2020, which will be chock-full of elections, is just two flips of the calendar away, and one of the races sure to draw much attention will be that for the position of General Sessions Court clerk, which will be vacated by current longtime clerk Ed Stanton Jr. father of former U.S. Attorney Ed Stanton III. Three of the known contenders for the clerkship are, like Stanton, Democrats and well known to followers of local politics. The first name in the hat was that of Shelby County Commissioner Eddie Jones, who filed two weeks ago. At about the same time, Commissioner Reginald Milton began informing people of his interest in the race. The two commissioners were just joined on the ballot by former longtime state Senator John Ford, who filed for the race on Monday. Yes, that John Ford, the controversial member of the Ford political clan who ran afoul of the FBIs Tennessee Waltz sting in 2005, was convicted of bribery, and served a term in state prison. Ford formerly served a term as General Sessions clerk, simultaneous with holding his Senate seat. Having long since regained his citizenship rights, Ford aims to re-establish himself as a public official. Despite his notoriety, he was regarded as someone with an in-depth knowledge of the ins and outs of state government and as a go-to legislator for mental health and various other public issues. Milton, a community organizer and chairman of the commissions community grants committee, which he brought into being, was a veteran of several political races before his 2014 election to the commission and his 2018 re-election. He greeted the news of Fords filing by saying, Ive never run an easy race. Im used to it. Confiding that he would make a formal announcement next week, Milton said, I appreciate those willing to offer themselves for public office, and I look forward to sharing with the public why I feel I would be best suited for this position. As was noted in this space recently, state Representative Jim Coley R-District 97 has decided to retire and wont seek re-election in 2020. So far, two Democrats have made known their interest in seeking the seat Allan Creasy, who got 45 percent of the vote in District 97 in a race against Coley last year, and Gabby Salinas, who gave Republican State Senator Brian Kelsey a close race in his 2018 re-election bid. Republicans will try to hold on to the seat, of course, and there is an active GOP candidate in the field John Gillespie, who works as a grant coordinator at Trezevant Episcopal Home and is making his first try for political office. Gillespie issued a press release this week claiming receipts of $47,000 at a recent East Memphis fund-raiser not a bad first-time haul. ...
