Memphis International Airport will now offer free wi-fi in terminals A, B, and C. (Awesome!) The airport will also be providing live music during the holidays. 

Here's another new thing for Overton Square: Lafayette's Music Room, which had its heyday in the 70s, will reopen next year. The venue is slated to have two shows a night as well as a bar and Southern food. 

The Children's Museum of Memphis has opened "Great American Airways", their newest permanent exhibit. It features activities and displays that explain the physics of air.

Lifeblood is donating stuffed plush polar bears to patients at Le Bonheur for each donor that gives blood or platelets from November 25 through Decemeber 5. Lifeblood's donation centers will be open this Friday and Saturday, in addition to their normal hours (they're closed on Thanksgiving, though). 

Dinstuhl's Chocolate's Chocolate Pecan Fudge is the #1 Fudge in America according to "Cooking with Paula Deen Magazine". 

The Church Health Center is crowd-funding a new dental chair.  The CHC has been providing the working uninsured in Shelby County with medical services for over 25 years. There's currently an eight month wait for dental services, which the organization is trying to cut in half. You can donate here to make that happen.

Here are some of your photos from this past weekend:

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.
