Happy Friday, Memphis! Here are the five things you won’t want to miss in Memphis this weekend. Also, while I don’t have a ton of information, according to City permits, there will be a Veteran’s Day parade downtown this morning (Friday) at 10 a.m. on Second Street from Exchange to Monroe.

1. Rio Grande Valley Vipers v. Memphis Hustle, Landers Center, Friday, 7 p.m.. $10+, all ages/kid-friendly
This weekend is another chance to cheer on the Grizzlies’ new G-League team, The Memphis Hustle. They take on Rio Grande in Southaven on Friday night. It’s Military Appreciation Night and there will be a giveaway. If you can’t make it in person, all the Hustle games will be broadcast on Facebook Live.

2. Crafts & Drafts, Crosstown Concourse Plaza, Saturday, 10 a.m. – 4 p.m., free to enter (but bring cash for purchases and beer), all ages/kid-friendly
The Memphis Flyer hosts the 3rd annual shopping and craft beer event. Head to plaza at Crosstown Concourse for 60+ local vendors, beer from local breweries, and food trucks. Be sure to bring cash for beer.

3. Binghampton International Festival, The Commons on Merton (258 N. Merton), Saturday, noon to 5 p.m., free, all ages
Celebrate the global diversity found in Binghampton at this new event. Expect food from Kaleidoscope Kitchen, a whole lineup of cultural dance and theater performances, music, and art.

4. Malted, Memphis Made Brewing, Saturday, 1 p.m. – 10 p.m., free to enter, all ages/21 to drink
From Memphis Made: “Celebrate Memphis Made Brewing’s fourth birthday with a day full of malty beer, food trucks, and live music from Harlan T. Bobo, James & the Ultrasounds, and the River City Tanlines, plus food by Yippie Trippie & the Porkstars and MemPops. Free MALTED glasses to first 50 customers.”

5. 5th Annual Howl at the Moon Party, The Warehouse, Saturday, 6 p.m. – 11 p.m., $40 adv./$50 at the door, 21+
Support the Streetdog Foundation at their annual party fundraiser featuring food, drink, music, live and silent auctions, a photo booth, and more.

A few more things I really wanted to draw attention to:

– It’s the annual Junior League Merry Marketplace Friday and Saturday at the Racquet Club.
– ESSENCE hosts “My City 4 Ways“, a day of music, art, and style featuring Memphians at Propcellar on Saturday.
– Local singer Cameron Bethany has an EP release show at Loflin Yard on Saturday at 7 p.m. and his voice is incredible.
– The Wolf River Conservancy does so much for our community, and they’re having their big fundraiser on Saturday night, so support them if you can.
– I’m spending 24 hours inside the Peabody Hotel starting this Saturday at noon. You can follow along as I explore the hotel from top to bottom via Twitter, Instagram (don’t forget to check the Stories), or the write-up next week right here on the blog.
