Curtis Givens Teams Up With Eat Big Bill’s Bar-Be-Que To Increase The Livelihood Of Food & Entertainment In Memphis

The modern and clean look of Eat Big Bills located in East Memphis.”

The summer is starting to open up as businesses start to flourish after the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic. Restaurants and entertainment facilities closed around the world, while Americans struggled to keep themselves occupied during the shut in moments. The vibe of the world went down, while accommodations for businesses had to be blue printed, and people as well had to change the routines of their everyday lives. Yet out of all the catastrophes and all the disappointing moments we have faced during this tragic time, there’s one thing that did not change, the soul and entertainment in Memphis, that was indeed through food, by businesses man and entertainment wizard Curtis Givens.

Sponsored by The Chiro Place, Curtis Givens and Memphis frontliners enjoyed delicious barbecue for lunch on a beautiful summer day. Eat Big Bills and other physicians supported those working hard on the frontlines.

Eat Big Bill’s , A Modern Vibe

From talking to Givens, he expressed the importance of reaching all crowds when it comes to entertainment , especially in the food world, “you know, everybody got to eat,” said Givens. This was his reasoning of collaborating with Big Bill and turning the organization to a modern barbque resturant. We sat at the clean bar, which was throughly sanitized per customer, every other minute and through operation hours. The facility kept cleanness a priority while in the midst of COVID-19, keeping it safe for the people. Not to mention, the new spot opened within the madness, but Curtis praised God abundantly throughout the time of opening during the chaos. “It’s a blessing to open and be able to present good food to people even in the midst of this tragedy,” he said, “God really has anyone who is still opening during this time in the palm of his hands.” Curtis explained how seeing people smile when they ate the fresh off the grill entrees was such an enjoyment, not only that, yet watching them express much gratitude and say positive comments about the scenery. What’s even more interesting, his wife created the map of the interior for Eat Big Bills from her decorative eye. “My wife actually designed this whole area, the tables and everything,” he expressed. The fairly new location is located in the heart of East Memphis, making a sharp left as soon as one exit the expressway, towards Kirby Road, eating here will not leave you dissatisfied.

Not too much about the decor, or the music that plays 90s R&B, we must get into what all of Memphis has been waiting devour on a week to week basis, the food. I had the privileges of trying some of the food, and I could say the flavor from the fresh grilled salmon had my taste buds at attention. There is a menu that one must go by, but this blog in fact will express the crowd favorites, surely you would be willing to try them. “Oh, the millennials they loooove the smoked salmon sandwich,” said Curtis, “they cannot get enough of it.” From taking my first bite into the entree, I believed every word that was said. The food was fresh and like Curtis expressed, he and Big Bill are deep within the quality of what is being served.

Episode 9: Dating In Memphis: “The Baby Daddy”

“This my son, doesn’t he look just like me?”

“First off where is your baby momma?” My home girl was not about to deal with this crap this man was giving her. She knew he was lying from the crack of his teeth. His nice teeth at that. It just amazed me how baby father’s were so attractive but no good. At least we knew that anyway, since we assumed this all because he did not work out with his baby mother. “Man, I don’t even talk to her no more,” he started to chuckle. But what good was he if he wasn’t even with her, so you mean to tell us everything you had going on was a mistake, and the baby was only a result of unprotected sex. My friend has been dealing with this toxic individual for 6 months now, and he just would not stop messing with his baby mother.

She once informed me about how it was so much “baby momma drama,” due to the simple fact his baby mother did not want to leave him alone and informed her that, “he will always be there.” My friend had a run in with his baby mother multiple times and did not want to put up with him anymore. But something kept holding her back. I honestly feel from a psychology stand point that, it’s the fact that a woman is lusting and desiring a man, that is what’s making her want him even more. Or the simple fact that she cannot fully have him the way she wants, so she gets stuck in the fight she puts up to keep him. You get so caught up in playing step mom that you forget the kid has a real mom, I told her don’t mess with this man unless he’s ready to give her a ring, if he’s not mature, he’s only damaged goods. But dealing with a baby daddy in Memphis will only result in some form of baby momma drama, she surly won’t bag down if she has no life, and you won’t either. Girl no matter how fine that baby daddy is, and I promise you they do become very attractive, if it’s not a good fit, leave him alone, because dealing with one of them, you will be pregnant for the remainder of your life.

Episode 8: Dating In Memphis: “The Trainer”

“Girl he has to be dating everyone”

“See, all I do is train women to get in shape, it’s a shame I still attract all the wrong women who just want sexual relations.” He stood there irritated because he was one of the few who actually wanted a girlfriend in Memphis. You rarely see guys with this much passion, yet he was already categorized as a “thot”. There’s nothing worst than a male thot in Memphis, at least that’s what all the women think. Being one of these you either pick up the wrong woman and get betrayed by the right woman because, yeah she has been hurt by all the male “thots.”

The fact that my friend even has a multitude of women on his list providing training services put him in this predicament. But also the fact that it’s other trainers actually sleeping with the women made it excessively hard to get in a relationship as well. Dating women in Memphis is like one of those box of chocolates, you never know what you’re going to get until you bite into it. Yet a lot of what he was getting was indeed insecurities. I mean, he was training beautiful women and women of all sizes. What woman wouldn’t feel like this. What this woman needs to know indefinitely is this, what’s the big deal, it’s definitely all in your head.

Episode 7: Dating in Memphis “The Church Boy”

“Come to church”

“She gotta go to church if she date me, I’m looking for a wife and she must be Godly.” He said this with so much emphasis, tailored in a nice suit as well all sat in the living room of my best friend’s apartment. “There is no way I’m dating a girl who does not believe in going to church, my dad or mom not going for that.” He then explained that his father was a pastor of one of the biggest churches in Memphis and of course his mom being the First Lady she had to “ok” whomever came through her door. You could tell he came from a good family, knew his word and was very handsome to the eye. Church boys in Memphis have swag, I mean fashion is on one-hundred and you wouldn’t even know they wear designer. If you even look at these young men, you honestly have to be church prone. This guy was not letting up about church and I don’t blame him, keeping your spirituality with God alive is important and messing with the wrong person proves you have too much to lose. It’s not much to them, but they are still in the crowd when you date in Memphis.

Episode 6: Dating in Memphis “The Entrepreneur”

“All my friends have money, no you can’t sit with us”

“See I’m going to be honest sweety, my business failed 3 times before I became who I am, you got to have that drive to sale.” What business did he really have anyway I thought. You will see him all the time at the best spots in Memphis including all the cigar lounges, just that modern suit and tie man swag, but sometimes will rock a hat and tennis shoes. “If you want to talk more about business I could give you some pointers, you’re very attractive and impressive to me because you do the same thing I do, and I don’t get impressed often.” With these men you HAVE to be like them. It’s either you got it or you don’t and they are very picky, yet then again they are not, they just want the proper love yet fall in love more with a woman with ideas, successful ideas and entrepreneurship abilities at that, with an ounce of stability. To them, that is very attractive.

I’m not going to lie, the entrepreneurs in Memphis have the game down pack. They know how to manage money more and have an array of friends. If you would want to date any of them they would be the ones to date. They’re too busy to play games, but that doesn’t mean they are too quick to pick you. The mind of an entrepreneur is careful and only care free when it comes to enjoyment with no cost. It’s all about pros and cons when it comes to them, and they do this with every situation. But honestly, they do pick the best.

“See I don’t want a woman who is going to give me headache, I have a job to do. She has to be almost EXACTLY similar to me, hard working and also working or having a good credit score.” Lol an entrepreneur talks a good game, but he for sure also ran the game. He was his own boss, but fully about his business when he it came to his relationships and his woman. “Play is play but business is always business,” he said. To be with an entrepreneur you have to have drive, can’t be a weak woman or man messing with them, further more they need continuous support, love, communication and attention. Because deep down inside of them there is someone dying anyway, because they have been on this road for so long, and yes of course, they need and want someone they can spend all of that money with, as well as make happy “money times, and travel. They are honestly the best picks. Hard working men, sometimes difficult when it comes to women, but dangit they are loyal, lol and FINE!!!

Episode 5: Dating in Memphis: “The College Girl”

“I’m looking for a baller”

“Hold on girl I gotta turn the paper in before we hit the club,” she said. I don’t even know why I’m going out with this child . She is my friend but a few months out of undergrad makes a huge difference, and she proved it. “Girl tonight, it’s this fine Nupe want me to come over, but he has a girlfriend, he told me they not really together though, I mean he calls me every now and then, he texts me all the time, I mean I like him but anyway yes girl he will be at LOVE tonight.” “The question is, are you even old enough for love, and how old is this Nupe?” She laughed and said,”now you know I have a fake I.D, why you playing.” I instantly got uncomfortable. Girl I didn’t even go to a club when I was her age like IN LOVE. She’s more ready than I have ever been. She was fly though, just “hot in the pants,” don’t know any better and breath smelled like pure Henny. Now she was offering me shots, I laughed and said “ girl I don’t drink like that no more.”

From her understanding I wasn’t turnt enough. We get in the car and she started going on and on about this promoter who was going to let us in free. “Mane how he look,” I said. “Girl tall and lean, and he stay with the latest fashion on, I mean fly, he promised me red bottoms.” Lol, red bottoms, tall & lean? “You talking about *****,” I said. “Yes him,” she said with excitement. “Girl he so fine, he got me a $300 booth tonight and some bottles, but I’m looking forward to seeing my Nupe.” This girl was head over hills for men, I mean she was banging everybody. Whoever she wanted she got with them, then she will hit me up all in her feelings about how somebody has played her. I will feel sorry cause I know how those college stages go. One time in school she got so intoxicated I had to literally carry her to her room. Then she started crying saying ******** was in the party with another female and won’t text her back. So much for the stick up college kid. She just didn’t know she was beautiful though, remind myself a lot of me.

“Come on girl there he go!” She got out the car and pulled her little shiny dress down to rush to the door to meet this guy. Now y’all wouldn’t even believe it. It was my friend, the same guy my home girl was infatuated with. Man, I tell you about these promoters. “Wassup girl,” he said. I looked at him and smirked, he knew exactly what I knew, but I wasn’t going to even say anything, don’t need him hitting me up asking me why I “blew up the spot.”

We get in the night club with this fake I.D she has saying she was 36 years old. Ha! If her dress wasn’t so small they probably wouldn’t turnt her around. Before we even make it in, shot after shot after shot, went down this college chicks throat, she even “drove the boat,” a few times from a few bottles the guy brought her. “There he go omg,” she said intoxicated, I guess it was the Nupe she was so excited about as well. I bend down to pick my wine glass off the ground and look up to she who she was running to, it was “The Player.” Dang….I knew these men were up to no good. But hey, that’s dating in Memphis. Now him and the promoter into it. I just sat back and laughed, this ought to be good.

Episode 4: Dating In Memphis: “The Promoter”

“Get on this flyer, come to the club I got you”

“Ok so look,” he said, “this is one of the biggest parties of the year, get on this flyer come to the club I got you.” My home girl was infatuated with this guy. I never really liked promoters, they were too close to scamming to me. But one thing for sure they made sure your face was on one of those janky flyers. “If she dating me ima, make sure she have bottles.” That is bottles in the club and sitting in a $300 booth for a few ours until his boss tell him ,”they have to move.” Honestly some promoters do have pull like that. But the way they move is not my style. This guy was my homie as well, tall, lean and wore all the Versace shoes as well as Loui. Wasn’t my business if it was real or not. I let him have his shine every time I saw him. In Memphis dating a promoter or a rapper is probably what the women want. They see themselves so caught up in the “Love & Hiphop” life that they will do anything to get close to fame, he knew this. He wasn’t even all that good looking just soaked in designer fashions, cologne and a nice hair cut.

“Your home girl taken?” He would ask me every time he see me buying wings at a wing spot he was probably promoting as well, or even if I’m just on the town hanging out. I never attended a place with multiple promoters dropped in fashion, that’s a key to know that club is not the right place to be. Like club STATUZ for instance. It’s so much smoke in there I hated it. I was so ready to leave and get into the comfort of my home but it was my homegirls birthday. That’s a way to show support. Now he trying to show his behind standing on couches with his designer shoes and order bottles that he has to work off. Terrible.

Episode 3: “The Player”

“I can have anything I want, any woman I want, whenever I want.”

So now, I’m at the WKND hang suite in Downtown Memphis, enjoying times with friends is the greatest days of them all. My home girl and I decided to go out and enjoy the Memphis scene. Since this spot is not a club in which we are fun of but not too much, we hang here all the time. “Girl, it is some nice looking men in here,” she said. She scopes the room and from the corner of my eye I see this tall guy walk forward. He grabs my hand and instantly I blush. “Wassup,” he said. It’s funny how my whole world turned when this guy looked at me. But after a few seconds of looking at his adoring smile, white teeth and smooth dark skin I knew he was up to no good. “You look beautiful as always,” he smirked. Now I’m not the “go for anything minded woman,” but boy did I go for him.

See in my lifetime I’ve had my time with “players.” But my definition of player is completely different from Memphis. A real player gets what he wants out of a woman and plays all sorts of games. Yet knowing I was a laid back female and not into the business of playing those games I decided to be the ultimate “player,” myself. “You look good too,” I said to him smiling. After a few more moments of talking we hugged and he went on about his night. See the problem with women is we spark players, we give them what they want without them evening working or asking for it. That’s what makes him a player, not talking to multiple women, that’s dating. But helping him complete his motives with the goals of “getting in your jeans,” or buying him something even time, that’s when he becomes a player, and yes sis he played you. This is what they mean by, “don’t hate the player hate the game.” Just don’t get the game ran on you. Girl, don’t be afraid of a player, he’s still a man, like every other man with feelings, treat him as such. Yet, it doesn’t make him any less of a man because he ran game. We just have to be careful. But let’s not forget he did tell me, “I can have anything I want, any woman I want, whenever I want.” Which is true, I believe him. And I can too. I’m not going to stop you from enjoying anything you want, at this mere moment, it just won’t be me. You are still extremely attractive though *sends text message* “lets be friends.” Lol I swear y’all, this is dating in Memphis.

Dating In Memphis Episode 2: “The Celibate Female”

“Girl, it’s hard being celibate in Memphis, but it’s safe”

So there’s this friend I have, and she is one of the sweetest people I know in Memphis. Very fun to hang around, very laid back and chilled, men love her but they will date her under one condition, if she decides to have relations with them. Talk about hard for her. With so many men in Memphis and her being one of the attractive ones, minus the likes, it makes it even harder. I think it’s the level of men we choose.

See yes, in Memphis there’s levels to relationships. It’s all about the brackets. Now a days they aren’t choosing any woman or man to be with, it’s a city girl or city boy vibe, it’s either you got it or you don’t. Honestly, in a way, that’s sexually, social and financially. They don’t care if you are more insane to walk outside cold feet with rain, if you have those three above you are in the loop. Now oh I didn’t give you her name, sorry this information is confidential. But she did allow me to write this blog about her so be thankful for that. I once asked her how was it being celibate in a city full of attractive men. The thing is she still hangs out with friends, she still actually talk to men, but she’s never alone with one. Now before hand, she was not this woman. She was sexually active and had every man she wanted, how ever she wanted if you know what I mean.

“I just decided to go for God’s peace,” she said. “These men can’t do a thing for me unmarried, but give me a baby and a massive headache.” Which she is right. She told me about this time one of her closest friends slept with her man and she caught them. I mean, this girl was at her home every night complimenting how good of a woman she was to “her man,” and went behind her back to sleep with him. She even taught the girl how to cook. That is insane, I said to myself then, here you are my friend I’m teaching you all the slopes of being a good woman and you go sleep with my man. Talk about being hurt. So now I don’t know if she is celibate because of past pains and things of that nature, or is it just to be closer to Godliness. I mean she is a constant church goer and works diligently in her community. “You know,” she said, “after catching her with him I wanted to kill her, but that’s far against my religion.” Lol, we know sis, we know.
