Wild Things 

What looks best with hunter orange and camo? Pearls? Emeralds? An amber pendant, perhaps? So many decisions, so little time.

Hardly anybody gets too gussied up for opera events these days. Sure, you'll see a bit of evening wear and some fur mixed in among the Sunday suits and business casuals, but attendees at Opera Memphis' Wild Game Dinner are invited to take things in a completely new direction: Hunting attire is encouraged.

Each year, Opera Memphis teams up with area hunters to transform the Clark Opera Memphis Center into the place where the wild things are delicious. Top chefs fashion a feast from duck, deer, wild pig, and all kinds of wild game. The menu for this year's Wild Game Dinner has yet to be announced, but the event's being described as "a culinary throwdown" among four top-notch Memphis chefs: Ann Barnes of Just for Lunch & Catering; Neely Draughon of Off the Square; Michael Francis of Heart & Soul; and Georgia Smith of Club Windward.

In addition to the wild things, there will be a wine-pull and an auction where attendees can bid on local culinary packages. Jason Freeman's old-school blues and juggrass outfit the Bluff City Backsliders provide the entertainment. For those who prefer a little grit and grind with their meal there will also be a "Big Game Lounge" where Grizzlies fans can watch the game.

Opera Memphis' Wild Game Dinner Friday, February 22nd, 6:30 p.m. at Clark Opera Memphis Center. Tickets: $175 each, $1,400 for a table of eight. And yes, hunting attire is encouraged. operamemphis.org
