Some of the world’s best golfers are at Southwind this weekend for the annual FedEx St. Jude Classic.

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.

    Looking for recommendations for family traveling through Memphis with 3 kids 11,10 and 4 in December 30-31

      Hi Sylvia! The kids would love the Memphis Zoo, Children’s Museum, Fire Museum, Overton Park, Woodland Playground at Shelby Farms, maybe a Grizzlies game if there is one. Peabody Duck March, A. Schwab soda fountain on Beale Street. You will have to double check on the hours since it will be during the holidays.
      I will post a holiday events guide in early or mid-November, too. There are quite a few holiday lights displays that stay up through New Year or at least that weekend.
