saturday, 8

And here it is. The night some of you have been waiting for. The Mike Tyson vs. Lennox Lewis World Heavyweight Championship at The Pyramid. There are likely to be things going on in just about every club in the city, so I can t list them all here. Some interesting ones include The Official Championship Celebrity Party at the New Daisy, where you can watch the fight on big-screen TV in the company of the likes of Evander Holyfield, Halle Berry, WWF s the Rock, Britney Spears, and who knows who else. There are screenings along with live music at Elvis Presley s Memphis and the Lounge. The cheapest place (well, the $15 tickets, not the place) is Newby s, where the fight will also be shown. I m sure there s a comprehensive calendar somewhere, but I really don t have the time to search it out nor do I really care. Also going on today is the second-Saturday-of-the-month South Main Carriage Art Tour, with carriage rides through the district and tours of the dozens of galleries, shops, and other businesses. Today kicks off the two-day Sisterhood Expo at Memphis Cook Convention Center, with all sorts of information and entertainment. Today also kicks off the two-day Native-American Pow-Wow at USA Ball Stadium in Millington, featuring traditional Native-American food, crafts, dancers, and the crowning of the new Princess Cheyenne Hartley. The Mini Van Blues Band is at the Full Moon Club upstairs from Zinnie s East. Jungle Room is at the P&H. And back at Young Avenue Deli, it s Robert Randolph & The Family Band.
