Happy Friday, Memphis! Here are the five events you won't want to miss this weekend:
Elvis loved cars, so for two days, Graceland is hosting a huge vintage car show that would make the king proud. Hundreds of cars will be on display from today until 1 p.m. on Saturday during the third annual Elvis Presley Car Show. It's free and open to everyone.
Eat some pasta, play some bocce ball, listen to Italian Idol contestants croon the classics and watch people compete in grape stomping at the annual Memphis Italian Festival. The festival, which is a family friendly celebration of all things Italian, is sort of like Barbecue fest – you can't eat in team booths unless you know someone, but there will be tons of Italian food for sale.
For the next 20 days, 20 Memphis artists will have their work on display at 20 non-traditional venues downtown as part of the first Unveil Downtown exhibit. Preview the pieces, then meet the artists at the opening party tonight at Felicia Suzanne's, then take a walk around downtown to see the works.
Break out your little black dress – the Orpheum is showing the Audrey Hepburn classic "Breakfast at Tiffany's" as part of their summer movie series. The movie starts at 7:15, but get there a little early for contests, drinsk and a Wurlitzer organ concert.
Round up your lady friends and head to the Cook Convention Center for the annual Sisterhood Showcase on Saturday and Sunday. There will be plenty of shopping, a fashion show, health and beauty information, a Sunday worship service and celebrity performances from Tyrese, Genuine and more. Also, there's something called the "Men Who Define Fine" showcase.
If none of these events are your thing, there are plenty more on the blog's calendar. There's also a bonus sixth thing to do on the I Love Memphis tumblr. No matter what you do this weekend, I hope you have a blast. Come back and tell me about it on Monday.
