This year, Memphis in May will host a brand-new event on Memorial Day weekend’s Saturday (May 28). It’s called 901Fest and it’s a celebration of all things Memphis, including food, music, and projects. Tickets are $9 per person, and I have ten  six pairs to give away.

Update: The contest is still going! I’m extending the deadline to enter and pick up your tickets until this Thursday, May 19, 2016.

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.
