According to the article, Legislation backed by the state hospitality association was set to be heard this week in committee but did not advance. HB 0624 – SB 0438 sought to make alcohol to go permanent.
The bill could be dead for the year. The House version was “taken off notice” in the state government subcommittee. Unless sponsor Darren Jernigan asks for the bill to be calendared for hearing, cocktails to go seems dead in Tennessee.

“The recent collapse of Silicon Valley Bank highlights many of the concerns that employers might face should they find themselves in the midst of a liquidity crisis. Making payroll, arriving at decisions related to wage reductions, considering furloughs – and possibly reductions-in-force – are just some of the actions you might need to take into consideration.”

Shelby County Schools need your help!
Hoping our amazing teams in the Hotel and Restaurant industry would be interested in hosting a Hospitality and Tourism Day for our business and culinary students on March 21-22nd.
This would be a 2-day rotating event that would allow our students the opportunity to submerge themselves into their world for a couple of days.
Each student group would have no more than 25 students so as to not overwhelm the establishment. The time of their visit would be from 10 AM until 1230PM. Each group would visit a different establishment on both days. It is the hope of the experience that each host could provide lunch for their small group. This could give the students the opportunity to taste what makes each host so special.
We are truly excited to kick off this journey of opening more doors to our students so that they can experience what visitors see when they visit our great city of MEMPHIS! Link to sign up is here.
