Final Day for Memphis at the Santora NEXT THURSDAY; Epic Boozefests Planned All Week

Categories: Indigestion

Thumbnail image for memphis1.jpg
Downtown SanTana's fabled Memphis at the Santora is closing for good this Sunday, and the Memphis boyos plan to go out not just with a bang, but multiple bangs.

Tonight Next Wednesday is the ever-beautiful Dinner With Dave, although our Dave Mau won't be cooking food but rather hold a musical extravaganza. Next Thursday, longtime Memphis presence Dave Hastie (sorry, Dave: never learned your exact title other than "badass") plans his own shindig. This Friday, I'll be there with my best pal getting blotto, as Memphis was my local for many years. And Sunday?

Sunday will be the last Yacht Party, the eminently successful Sunday brunch musicfest. There will be food, and the party will end at the mythical ??? hour.

I'm also hearing Memphis legends from the past--Ricky Yarnell, Johnny Sampson, among others--might show up. And so should you. See you there! I'll be underneath a table, passed out or shit...and apologies for all the corrections, but Dave Mau gave me one too many Hurricanes this morning!

I heard Dan C. will be there muching down his fav's tonight. Perhaps there will be a lil' somtin' extra in one of them chicken wings, in the form of a Ken Lay!, or maybe just a strange stench surrounding the Irvine Stalker.

Thanks Gustavo.  My business cards said "General Manager" and "Director of Catering & Events".  A Yelp reviewer once called me a "giant, bald, kind smiley man".  A blogger once called me "fat".   But I'll take "badass" over any of those.

Yes it is, I had been there twice, never again, remember we as consumers are allowed to have opinions! Your statement is your PERSONAL opinion. So be careful on how you post on a Co FB account as your coming across like you know everything, you can't have any clue on how I was treated their, let alone others.

It's so unfortunate to see or hear of any business closing in Downtown SA. I love what the city had done to the area and I wish that my city (Anaheim) would do the same. I can only hope these two vacant spots get filled with great selections, too.

The Crosby is not in any way shape or form, considered a 'fail.'

ABSOLUTELY NOT! They announced their closing of the Santora location before the incident that happened outside the Crosby.

I only had some drinks at this location, the CM I loved the food... this one was different and not sure what about it made me not wanna sit and eat.. maybe Lola's had me hooked food wise.. Erika - NO this was announced long before the crap Crosby fail ( in my opinion).

Another restaurant/bar closing? Is this correlated to The Crosby's shutdown?

@dubyadawg The serial commenter is at it again. He's a Top Commenter because he has no job and finds it difficult to draft complete sentences.  Downtown Santa Ana can be great, but not with more bars and restaurants. It goes without saying, however, that numbskulls like Dubydawg cannot fathom such a future because he is a half-wit. Go home, child.

Stay out of Irvine, rouge wannabe cops shoot up innocent people sitting in their vehicles in parking structures at their residence. Stay out of Costa Mesa by Triangle Square because Asians are killing club goers. Stay out of ...

Get it? Obviously not you stupid turd.

@DubyaDunce.  Oh, I have a great job!  You have no idea.  DTSA will have more restaurants.  DTSA will have more of what it needs.  STFU idiot.  Love my job, love the city, love my neighborhood and DTSA only gets better this year.  Don't forget about the DTSA Farmers' Market coming soon!

@dubyadawg You trick perra.  You sit here and comment like the numbskull you are, likely because you have no job or are underemployed.  You are a dope and no amount of obfuscation (go look it up moron), will change the fact that downtown SA (or the East end as tools like you like to call it) is not safe.
