1. South Main Trolley/Art Night, South Main, Friday, 6 p.m. – 9 p.m., free, all ages/kid-friendly
It’s time for the monthly night where South Main’s shops and businesses set up open houses, usually with free drinks and snacks; usually a couple spots have live music. Live music at South Main Market, The Vault, South Main Sounds, and more, plus Art Village Gallery hosts on opening for the “Out of Africa” exhibit.

2. Finding Neverland, Orpheum Theatre, Friday – Sunday, times vary, $25 – $125, all ages/10+
This musical, focused on the story behind Peter Pan, impressed me with its creative staging, energy, great acting (seriously), and while it’s got some sad parts (why I’m suggesting a 10+ age, but really y’all can research and decide re: your own kids) there was also a ton of humor. In addition, Finding Neverland features a real dog and something I’m calling a glitter tornado. I highly recommend the show, which goes on at 8 p.m. on Friday, at 2 p.m. and 8 p.m. on Saturday, and at 1 p.m. and 6:30 p.m. on Sunday.

3. Chocolate Fantasy, Agricenter International, Saturday, 11 a.m. – 5 p.m., $20, all ages
Support the National Kidney Foundation of West Tennessee at the annual Chocolate Fantasy. Consider it a warm-up to the sugar-laden chocolates of Valentine’s Day, with more than 30 local vendors serving samples of candies, baked goods, ice cream, and more.

4. Memphis v. Cincinnatti, FedExForum, Saturday, 5 p.m., prices vary, all ages/kid-friendly
Support our boys in blue and gray as they take on Cincinnati at home in Saturday’s men’s Tigers basketball game.

5. 90s Party, Rec Room, Saturday, 8 p.m., free to enter, 21+Local radio station 96X hosts a nineties-themed party at the Rec Room, complete with 90s music, movies, and video games, plus drink specials and dancing. While the official start time is 8 p.m., they’re saying 9 p.m. is when things really get going.

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.
