Happy Friday, Memphis! Here's a list of the five events you won't want to miss this weekend:

1. Trolley Tour, South Main Arts District, Friday, 6 p.m. – 9 p.m., free

It's the last Friday of the month, which means that the South Main Arts District is staying open late for Trolley Tour. Check out the street's shops, art galleries and organizations (many of which have free wine and snacks) and have dinner at Rizzo's, Earnestine and Hazel's or the Arcade.

2. A Year in a Night with the Tennessee Tease, Evergreen Theatre, Friday and Saturday, 10 p.m. (Saturday 7 p.m. and 11 p.m.), $10

Tennesee Tease Presents: A Year in a Night

The lovely ladies of the Tennessee Tease are going to attempt to cram an entire calendar year into a single night this weekend. Their show will feature classic burlesque acts that will take you through a full year, month by month. The Rolling Head Orchestra will play, and there will be fire. Pick up advance tickets here, or buy them at the door.

3. The Magic School Bus, Orpheum Theatre, Saturday, 11 a.m. and 6 p.m., $15

Ms. Frizzle and the Magic School Bus will be at the Orpheum for two special kid-friendly shows on Saturday. Like the children's books, the show will feature Ms. Frizzle's class going on an amazing field trip around the world (this time, in search of facts about climate change) in the flying Magic School Bus. This would be a great time to complete assignment #24 in the 365 Things to do in Memphis.

4. British Arrows Awards, Brooks Museum of Art, Saturday, 2 p.m. $6 Brooks and Ad-Fed members / $8 non-members

Attention, Anglophiles – the best British television ads are being shown at the Brooks Museum this weekend. The 75 minute screening features ads that have been selected as the best by advertising professionals from around the world.

5. Chinese New Year Celebration, Center for Southern Folklore, Saturday, 4:30 p.m., free

Though Chinese New Year fell on January 23rd, there's a celebration this weekend at the Center for Southern Folklore. There will be dancing, music, and traditional New Year's foods served to celebrate the Year of the Dragon. There's also an opening reception for Changzhi Yu's photographs of past Chinese New Year celebrations.

If none of these events are your thing, there are more on the blog's calendar. As always, no matter what you do this weekend, have a great time.
