Here comes Trader Joe’s with a Friday opening in Germantown after lots of mystery and delays and changes for what is a pretty simple concept. For so many of us, this has been a long-hoped for goal.

They say that beauty is in the eye of the beholder, and for Taylor Cao, a teacher at Kingsbury High School, his love of Memphis is nothing short of beautiful.

The combination is another example of sports carrying the banner for the promotion of Memphis in general.
