It's the weekend PLUS Labor Day

So it is the weekend again and a wonderfully long weekend! Many of us are going out of town to see friends and grab that one last trip to the beach before the summer is officially over. But what to do if your friends live here and the sun burn from your last beach visit is still scarring your skin? Well no worries because--per usual--Memphis has tons to do!

First I will rant and rave about what the Orpheum has to offer tonight----that is right, it's Rocky Horror Picture Show! Now this is a movie that you do not want to miss. At only $6 you really could not ask for a more entertaining evening. With humor and craziness and props galore this is a great show. The Annual Costume Contest starts at 8 PM tonight and yes people do dress like this so get funny:

Next we have CICADA, which is a new play by Voices of the South. I have heard many a good thing about Voices of the South and I am sure this one is no different. Now this is the last weekend that this show runs so do stop by and catch the show.

This glorious Labor Day weekend is also to be filled by the Memphis Music and Heritage Festival. Now I went last year and got $5 mojitos from Majestic Grille while listening to truly great music and an atmosphere that made me love Memphis even more. So basically you are enjoying yourself while supporting the Center for Southern Folklore a great organization that reminds everyone that Memphis' music is the best. The festival runs from 11AM to 11Pm on both the 5th and the 6th so make sure to go, get a poster and enjoy yourself.

Now I know there are many other great things to be done this weekend that I did not include. Do comment and let me know what else is going on in Memphis, on the corner of Main and Beale and beyond...
