friday, 31

It s the last Friday of the month, which means there s tonight s South Main Trolley Art Tour, with free champagne trolley rides to the district s galleries, shops, and other businesses, and it s one of the best things to do in Memphis. While you re down there, go check the new Fratelli s Market a block over on Front Street. Very cool addition to the neighborhood. Also, there s an opening reception at the Durden Gallery for From Abstract to Zebra, works by James King. Tonight s Orpheum Theatre Movie Series feature is Close Encounters of the Third Kind. Today kicks off this weekend s Memphis Potter s Guild Spring Show and Sale at the Memphis Botanic Garden, as well as the Ducks Unlimited Great Outdoor Festival at Agricenter International, while it s still there. Today also kicks off this weekend s big Memphis Italian Festival, with a spaghetti sauce contest, other Italian foods, bocce, and more. The Gamble Brothers are at the Lounge tonight. Jackie Johnson is at Isaac Hayes Food, Music, Passion. Lucky Larue is at Kudzu s. FreeWorld and Speakeasy are at the Hi-Tone. DJ Sean O Daniels is spinning tunes in the M Bar at Melange. The Chris Scott Band is at Poplar Lounge. And last but certainly not least, today kicks off Wifflestock 2002 at Zinnie s East, with wiffleball tournaments, a celebrity wiffleball game, food, live music, and a whole lot of crazy fun. Let s hope they bring back the pudding wrestling. Proceeds benefit the Ronald McDonald House.

  • Scotched and Trumped!

    I've been trying not to write much about Donald Trump because the idiot is getting way too much publicity, but I figured not many people pay attention to me, so I'm not adding to the media frenzy that much when I state that I really do think he might be the Antichrist.
