The Cupboard Restaurant will donate $1 to the Mid-South Food Bank for every Thanksgiving turkey catering order placed until November 26. If they raise $500, they'll double the whole donation. 

The St. Louis Cardinals now own the Memphis Redbirds, and the City of Memphis acquired AutoZone Park. 

In case you missed it, Drake filmed the music video for his track "Worst Behavior" in Memphis. Grantland has a great article here that provides background. See photos of Drake around town here and a map of locations from the video here.

Frayser now has some unique eco-friendly, solar-powered homes in the Wolf River Bluffs neighborhood that will save on energy bills. It's the only neighborhood in Tennessee that is energy-producing, which is pretty neat.

Tickets for Wicked at the Orpheum Theater (playing January 29 through February 26) go on sale on Black Friday at 10 a.m. Get them here. 

Be Free Revolution, a Memphis-based nonprofit that aids African communities, is having their annual fundraiser, "Passport", this coming Saturday (November 23) at the Center for Southern Folklore. Handmade accessories from Kenya and Uganda will be available, along with a silent auction, food, drink, and live music.

Here are some of your photos from the weekend. Tag your photos on Instagram and Twitter #ilovememphis and they might show up on the blog in the future.

I write about what’s going on with Memphis music, food, arts, events, sports, people, and culture. Memphians love Elvis and barbeque with a passion that must be seen to be believed, but there is so much more to this place.
