5 Things To Do This Weekend: 2/28 – 3/2
Happy Friday! Here are the five things in Memphis that you won't want to miss this weekend. Go forth and have a great time and tell me all about it on Monday.
(P.S. I'm out of town today, so due to my short week and the Beale Street Music Fest lineup announcement yesterday, you'll get a double dose of Project 50 next week.)
The Great American Backyard is an aerial arts show featuring Memphis dancers, aerialists, theatre performers and visual artists will interact with several original “play” structures while exploring the ideas surrounding the great outdoors, physical activities, and childhood memories of playtime.
It's the second annual Eat Right to Fight Hunger Gala, and the Mardi Gras theme includes live music, dancing, mask-making, an art sale, plus viddles catered by Deja Vu and plenty of libations. Read the full post here.
3. Chinese Connection Dub Embassy with Marco Pave and more, Hi-Tone, Friday, 9:30 p.m., ages 18 and up, $10/$8 with canned food donation
Chinese Connection Dub Embassy is Memphis' resident reggae/roots group and they're performing with a bunch of other acts, including rapper Marco Pavé, who I wrote about yesterday. Read that interview here.
It's the second annual fundraiser for the Memphis Center for Reproductive Health. Local artists and fashion designers create custom outfits made out of condoms, and attendees vote on their favorite. Enjoy "prophylactic punch", live music, burlesque performers, and a photobooth.
5. Hook, Brooks Museum, Sunday, 2 p.m., all ages, free
It's got Robin Williams. It's got the Lost Boys. It's free. You know you want to go watch Hook at the Brooks.
Whatever you do this weekend, I hope you have a blast. Tag your pics #ilovememphis and they might show up on the blog. Don't forget to follow I Love Memphis on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, or Pinterest if you're into that sort of thing.
