Laugh, Dance, and Get a Workout This Weekend in Memphis

Posted By on Fri, May 30, 2008 at 4:00 AM

Most Flyer staffers can drink and smoke with the best of 'em, but despite our unhealthy ways, we still want to help you get a whole-body experience this weekend.

Start by laughing off stress at Craig Gass' performance at Comedy, TN tonight. Gass is known for his hilarious celebrity impersonations, including Al Pacino, Gene Simmons, and Samuel L. Jackson.

Practice anger management the Toughman World Championship Finals at Sam's Town Casino. Average Joe fighters from around the country will compete in preliminary rounds and the final contest throughout the weekend.

Shop your cares away at That Chic Shopping Show at the Agricenter tonight and all day tomorrow and Sunday. The women's expo features more than 150 exhibitors, fashion shows, food and wine tastings, and an Elvis tribute artist performance.

Walk off the week's calories at the Overton Park Guided Nature Walk, led by Citizens to Preserve Overton Park on Saturday at 10 a.m. Participants should meet up at the Lick Creek Bridge on Old Forest Lane.

Calm the mind as you view handmade pottery in earthenware, stoneware, and porcelain by local artists at the Memphis Potters Guild Show and Sale at the Dixon Gallery & Gardens Saturday and Sunday.

Booty dance your cares away on Sunday at the Bow Wow performance at the Cannon Center for the Performing Arts. The show, which begins at 7 p.m., also features rappers Pleasure P, Young JT, Rap Star, TL, and Zed Zilla & Main Mane.

Finally, round out the weekend with a relaxing bike ride down the Germantown Greenway. The annual "Cycle the Germantown Greenway" event will circle around the suburb, and ambitious riders may even ride to Collierville. Bikers meet at 8:30 a.m.
