Rock For Love 8

Blog Sep 12, 2014

Huey’s is a proud sponsor of Rock For Love and big supporter of Church Health Center. Each year, we participate in this fun event, one of the Church Health Center’s biggest fundraisers all year along.

Our participation this year was two-fold: We hosted the Kick-Off Show and joined in the fun during the Kid’s Show.

Huey’s Midtown hosted the Kick-Off Show the Sunday before the music festival began on August 31st. The Chaulkies jammed from 4pm-7pm. Church Health Center was present to pump up the show and give away swag, and we ran beer specials that day to raise an extra $268.00 donation bonus back to the organization!

We also hosted a Huey’s Kids Zone play area during the Saturday afternoon show, and we had a blast. It rained some, but that did not take our fun away! We played frill pick shooting games, colored on a “graffiti wall”, and blew bubbles, all while dancing to the music line-up on the Overton Square Courtyard stage.

We’re happy to volunteer and get involved in such a fun event, and we hope you will join in the fun with us next year!

Huey’s Takes the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge

Blog Aug 29, 2014

It all started with one phone call. Huey’s Poplar decided that it was time to take the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge, and they wanted to challenge another store. Next thing you know, all 8 locations had taken the challenge, plus the home office as well. Here is a breakdown of how this week went:

 

1. On Tuesday, August 19th, Huey’s Poplar took the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge. They, in turn, challenged Huey’s Collierville.

 

 

2. On Wednesday, August 20th, Huey’s Collierville accepted the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge. They then challenged Huey’s Germantown.

 

 

3. On Thursday, August 21st, Huey’s Germantown accepted the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge. They challenged Huey’s Downtown.

 

 

4. On Friday,  August 22nd, Huey’s Downtown accepted the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge with much flair. They challenged Huey’s Southwind.

 

 

5. On Saturday, August 23rd, Huey’s Southwind accepted the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge, babies and all. They challenged Huey’s Midtown.

 

 

6. On Sunday,  August 24th, Huey’s Midtown accepted the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge. They challenged Huey’s Corporate Office.

 

 

7. On Monday, August 25th, the Boggs family and Huey’s Corporate Office accepted the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge. Shannon accepted it twice. They challenged Huey’s Southaven.

 

 

8. On Tuesday, August 26th, Huey’s Southaven accepted the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge. They challenged Huey’s Cordova.

 

 

9. On Wednesday, August 26th, Huey’s Cordova accepted the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge, with mermaids and Titanic t-shirts.

 

 

As the final store, Cordova challenged STEVE VOSS, Huey’s Area Director and former General Manager of Huey’s Cordova. Steve has yet to complete his challenge, but we will not let him slip through the cracks.

The most important part of this endeavor was raising awareness and money for Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis, better known as ALS or Lou Gehrig’s Disease. Because of the awesome, impromptu, enthusiastic participation from all Huey’s locations, our employees were able to raise over $1200.00 for The ALS Association!

This week of Ice Bucket Challenges started with the Huey’s staff and managers wanting to participate and give back. It was not mandatory for all stores to participate. They instead participated on their own accord and all raised a significant amount of money for the organization.

The ALS Ice Bucket Challenge is still happening, and you can donate to at alsa.org/donate.

Andrew Hogan: King of the Frill Picks

Blog Aug 18, 2014

As many of you know, we host annual frill pick contests at each of our locations. Once a year, we knock down the picks and hold a contest, which raises money for the Memphis Zoo.

Along with our customer frill pick contest, we also hold a behind the scenes employee frill pick contest as well. In short, the employee that raises the most money for the Memphis Zoo during the store’s annual frill pick contest wins a prize.

Huey’s Downtown just wrapped up another successful frill pick contest, which in total raised $1354.00 for the Memphis Zoo. The employee that raised the most money during the contest was Andrew Hogan, or “Hogan” as we know him. Hogan has now held this honor for the last 5 years in a row at Huey’s Downtown, always raising the most money.

To congratulate him on his success, his co-workers baked him a cake, decorated a crown, and made a trophy for him! Thank you Hogan for your hard work in supporting the Memphis Zoo each and every year!

Upcoming Shows + JP Soars

Blog Jul 09, 2014

Huey’s Midtown is excited to welcome the outstanding and overwhelmingly talented JP Soars and the Red Hots to our stage on Sunday night, August 31st at 8:30pm.

JP Soars is not a typical blues guitarist. He has a diverse musical background that encompasses a multitude of influences, such as T-bone Walker, Muddy Waters, Tito Puente, Miles Davis, Hank Williams, Black Sabbath and Slayer. Soars toured the globe and recorded several records with some of the most extreme metal bands in the world before finding his home in the blues. It is these attributes that are giving Soars an instantaneously recognizable style.

JP Soars and the Red Hots performed at Huey’s Cordova in May to a packed house, and we expect Huey’s Midtown to be just as jamming! Come grab a spot and jam with us all night.

Other exciting shows coming up at Huey’s:

Memphis on a Budget

Blog Jun 27, 2014

We are excited to be featured in “Memphis on a Budget“, an article that came out today from USA Today focused on visiting Memphis on a budget. USA Today listed us as one of the top places to dine in Memphis for under $10 each, alongside Memphis greats such as Gus’ Fried Chicken, Jerry’s Sno Cones, Mosa Asian Bistro, and Bryant’s Breakfast.

Even as Memphians, sometimes we forget about some of the fun times we can have in our city for cheap, or we are constantly discovering new places. Read the article, and discover a few new ideas on how to spend your summer!

Blog Jun 11, 2014

This year, as a big thank you to all of our employees who volunteered on behalf of Huey’s, we threw our first Volunteer Appreciation Party at Levitt Shell. We are proud to have over 25% of all of our employees at all locations participate in a Huey’s volunteer event in the last 2 years, and we wanted a way to say thank you. Here are some photos from the event.

A Day of Merrymaking 2014

Blog Jun 09, 2014

This past Saturday, we rounded up a crew of awesome Huey’s employees and headed out to Overton Park for the second annual A Day of Merrymaking. We hosted a Huey’s Kids Zone, with a frill pick shooting game, a graffiti wall to color, and a bubbles play area.

We had so much fun, and by the looks of it, the rest of the guests at Overton Park did as well! The weather was unexpectedly beautiful with warm temps, sunshine, and very little mud. We had our own live music to jam to, as well as enjoying the tunes from Moon River Festival at Levitt Shell.  Thanks to everyone who came out to play with us and support Overton Park Conservancy!

See our gallery for photo evidence of all the fun we had.

Support Free Live Music in Memphis

Blog Jun 05, 2014

Memphis is special for many reasons. One of our favorite reasons at Huey’s is the opportunity to see free live concerts four days a week during the Levitt Shell Spring and Fall Concert Series.

Huey’s is a proud supporter of the Levitt Shell, as we sponsor a show every year and our Vice President of Operations serves on the Board of Directors. Tonight is our sponsorship night, and we encourage everyone to come groove to Katie Herzig tunes with us.

For a full line-up of the Levitt Shell Spring Concert Series, view the calendar on their website.

Frill Pick Contests

Blog May 15, 2014

If you have ever dined with us before, you have probably noticed all of the toothpicks in the ceiling. This is a long-time tradition at Huey’s, where customers can shoot them out of a straw and into the ceiling. This tradition has its own history, and veteran Huey’s customers have their own strategies on on the best way to get them to stick in the ceiling. We get so many questions about this, that we even created a video explaining it in more detail.

Our favorite part of this tradition is our annual frill pick contest that we host at every location. Once a year, we knock all the frill picks down, count them, and hold a contest to see who can guess how many were in the ceiling. The winners get Huey’s gift cards and 100% of the proceeds are donated directly back to The Memphis Zoo. In 2013, we donated over $8000 to the zoo just from this contest alone.

Each location hosts their frill pick contest at a different time throughout the year, so you have 8 total changes to enter to win. Here is a list of when each location hosts theirs, so you can prepare and start counting:

  • Southaven: August 15-September 15
  • Downtown: July
  • Midtown: May 15-June 15
  • Poplar: November
  • Cordova: October
  • Germantown: February
  • Collierville: September
  • Southwind: March
