Happy Friday, Memphis! Here are the five things you won’t want to miss in Memphis this weekend, plus a few extras.
1. The Illusionists, Orpheum Theatre, Friday – Sunday, $30 – 85, all ages
The world’s best selling Broadway magic show is at the Orpheum with five shows in three days (Friday at 8, Saturday at 2 and 8, and Sunday at 1 and 6:30). This mind blowing spectacular showcases the jaw dropping talents of seven of the most incredible Illusionists on earth.
2. Grizzlies v. Warriors, FedExForum, Friday, 7 p.m., prices vary, all ages
Let’s fill up the Grindhouse. Fill. it. up. It’s also a National Civil Rights Museum Pride Uniform Night.
3. Golf and Games Food Truck Park, 5484 Summer Avenue, Saturday, 10 a.m. – 10 p.m., prices vary, all ages/kid-friendly
This Saturday, Golf & Games (aka “Putt Putt”) on Summer will open its permanent food truck park with about eight trucks and live entertainment. Read more here.
4. The Break-Up Show 6, New Daisy Theater, Saturday, 8 p.m. – 11 p.m., $20, 21+
The Break-Up Show is back with their sixth installment of 100% true Memphis stories of heartbreak, rejection and insanity, featuring dramatic recitations of text-message breakups and online dating fails, original sketch comedy videos, bad date re-enactments, and hysterical meltdowns.
5. Ghost River Release Party, Hammer & Ale, Sunday, 1 p.m. – 6 p.m., 21+ to drink
Ghost River will release two limited edition speciality beers – Midnight Magic and Sinful Sister Barleywine – and 10 percent of proceeds benefit the Johnny Cash statue project in Cooper Young. Read more about Memphis’s new high gravity beers here.
I’ve got one more super unique idea for this weekend…the American Dream Safari’s Indoor Trailer Park is having an art sale on Friday, February 10th from 5-8pm so you can pick up a little something for your Valentine. Or yourself. Tire ties, distinctive chairs, objects for the garden and art for the naked wall available for sale.
Also, don’t forget that the Memphis Open tennis tournament begins on Saturday at the Racquet Club with qualifying matches. Read all the weeks’ matches, world-class athlete, and live Memphis music here.
