Drink Beer With Animals This Weekend

Posted By on Fri, Aug 29, 2008 at 4:00 AM

Don't do your drinkin' in a dive Friday night. Instead, head to the Memphis Zoo for the annual Zoo Brew party, where guests will sample fine microbrews from around the world. The best part -- it's only $15! The party starts tonight at 6 p.m. For something totally different, check out Miss Fairy Tale at Midtown gay bar Crossroads tonight. This live disco operetta mixes video and stagecraft in a salute to Donna Summer and the Disney Princess franchise. The show runs Friday and Saturday night at 10 p.m.

Save money by hitting up the Memphis Music and Heritage Festival, the uber-popular free fest with over 300 musical and dance performances this weekend. The festival runs from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. Saturday night through Sunday night.

Memphis lost 5,000 residents during the Yellow Fever Epidemic of 1978. During that tragic time, the survivors spent a lot of time in their black mourning clothes. See examples what women and men wore (and how they decorated their homes) during times of loss at "Between the Church and the Cemetery" at the Woodruff-Fontaine House in Victorian Village. The exhibit runs through November 2nd. Party on!!

The second annual Delta Fair and Music Festival begins this weekend at the Agricenter. Catch local metal band On a Dead Machine Saturday night or Foghat and the Romantics on Sunday night. Besides live music, the fair also features a rodeo and various exhibits.
