98. Archimania Leads 2016 Architecture Awards -

Memphis architecture firm archimania was the biggest winner Saturday night at the 2016 AIA Memphis Design Awards, an annual bash that honors the city’s top architecture firms.

Also singled out for honors by the four members of the design awards jury - which this year was comprised of nationally recognized, award-winning architects from Raleigh, N.C. - were the firms designshop, Haizlip Studio and Self+Tucker Architects as part of a joint venture with archimania. There were 11 winners in all, and the honors were presented during the event at Clark Tower’s Tower Center by the awards’ jury chair Erin Sterling Lewis of Raleigh’s in situ studio.

99. Four Judicial Races on Aug. 4 Ballot -

Two years after the big ballot of judicial positions that are up for election once every eight years, there are four judicial races on the Aug. 4, 2016 ballot.

The two races for Bartlett Municipal Court Judge and races for Shelby County Circuit Court Judge and Shelby County Chancery Court reflect a last-minute ballot switch by the Shelby County Election Commission as well as continued turnover in countywide courts.

100. Tickled Pink -

MEMPHIS IN BLACK AND WHITE. AND PINK. I’m glad Billy Orgel got engaged at Justine’s because that inspired his family to save it, not because they miss the crystal and crabmeat but because the place is personal.
