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!

Volunteer Appreciation Party 2014

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

Madison is Midtown

Blog May 13, 2014

If you haven’t been living under a rock for the last year or two, you know that Overton Square is making a huge comeback, and the effects of this incredible revitalization is trickling down Madison Avenue.

Our original Huey’s location is located on Madison, off Tucker, and we couldn’t be more proud to be on the most happening street in Memphis. This street has it all: arts and culture, restaurants, nightlife, live music, parks, retail, fitness, and more in a super pedestrian and bike friendly way.

Because of the fulfillment we get in operating on this street, we are proud members of the Madison Avenue Business Association. The association is a great base for many exciting things that have happened on Madison in the last couple year, all operated by committees in the organization. To learn more about Madison Avenue Business Association, visit the website at www.madisonismidtown.com.

You can also keep up with all the cool things happening on the street, by checking out the “Madison is Midtown” Facebook and Twitter.

Memphis is Home

Blog Apr 30, 2014

Huey’s is a proud, Memphis institution. We’re proud of our staff, food, atmosphere, and amazing customers. We are also proud of our home, our Memphis.

We all know Memphis has many great qualities, and we could sit and discuss them all day. Just recently there was a great blog post by Lance Weidower highlighting many of these, with the comment section highlighting even more. A great example is the incredible revitalization our city is undergoing as we speak, an admirable task with efforts from many. We should all keep bragging about our development, restaurants, parks, sports, industry, arts, and more. At Huey’s, we love being a part of the vibrant restaurant culture and love focusing efforts on continuing to make Memphis a better place than it is already.

However, sometimes it’s nice to sit back and remember the simple things that makes Memphis great . This piece by Brave Girl Boots on Memphis was so touching, it had to be shared with the world. It’s a must read for anyone who calls Memphis home.
